Sometimes I believe I have some catching up to do when it comes to learning about smartphones and all the apps that can be used on them. I actually didn’t have a true “smartphone” until three years ago; before that, I would just use flip phones. I’m generally not one to use a ton of apps, but I do use some. Usually these are the important, basic apps necessary for me to perform day-to-day mobile functions. Occasionally I’ll download the random app to have a laugh or show a friend. For example, not too long ago I downloaded an app that created a zombie photo of me. I was genuinely terrified by the result. I also have a few social networking apps and gaming apps. Lately I’ve come to appreciate how far cell phones have come with regard to the ability to perform many of the same functions that larger computers can perform.
