It was a good run for some apps on my phone, but sadly, as the new year approaches, it was time to make some cuts for the ones that I just didn’t feel were working out. It wasn’t them, it was me… well, for some of them it was just me. For others, I just hated them.
Here are the top 6 apps that just had to go
- Jelly – Why I still had this on my phone, I have no idea. What a terrible idea!
- RandomVideo and Image editing apps: Truth is, as much as I wanted to use that, it really wasn’t so realistic because I just didn’t have the time. When I shoot video, it goes on Vine or its just a long video that I am sending to Youtube. If I am going to edit a video, I need to do it the right way and actually use it. Sadly for Magisto, they just didn’t make the cut. I just couldn’t ever really get into it.
- Hotels Tonight: An awesome idea, but it just sat there. I guess I am not as much of a traveler as I thought I was
- Google Device Assist: While it was super cool and helped me make this video, the reality is, I am never going to need it again. And if I do, I will just download it at the time.
- Snapchat: I gave it a shot… numerous shots. But I just don’t feel the value. I know I know I sound like a marketing heretic to some people, and I am not taking away how valuable it could be for some brands, but personally, I am just not feeling it. But I did get this great image out of it which I might consider using as a headshot in some places
- Inbox by Google: I REALLY did not enjoy using this. I don’t know if it changed since the last time, but I really just didn’t see the value. So it had to go. I still don’t know why they don’t just find a way to incorporate inbox features into what they already have.
A few that I am still on the fence about:
- Slideshare – I love slideshare, but I am just not using it on my phone. And it sends me so many notifications
- noknok – I really don’t love it, but it’s always interesting when someone adds me and I see what they call me. I guess for now it can make the cut.
- Astro File Manager – Because its not self explanatory how to actually access your files on a nexus device… which is bizarre.
