We spend a ton of time here at APPetite PR talking about, using, downloading, and discussing apps – and how people use apps in their daily life and work flow. We thought it would be good to take a look at what apps people having on their home screens and how they’re using them.
First up is Ashleigh Schroeck. Schroeck is a 23-year-old PR & Marketing professional, and an account executive at WISE PR – APPetite PR. She works in NYC and lives by the beach in Belmar, NJ.
Here’s what Ashleigh had to say about her choice of apps:
Message- This is the one app that I use throughout the day, every single day. My friends and family are big texters.
Calendar- I like having the date right there at-a-glance. I also use my calendar to remind me of appointments, events, etc.
Photos- I don’t review my photos often after I’ve taken them, but I will send them to people once in a while. I usually upload them to social media immediately.
Camera- I use my camera on an almost daily basis to send things that I find entertaining or interesting either to friends or my social media sites.
Videos- I never use this, but kept it on my home screen for some reason.
YouTube- I hardly ever use YouTube, but when I do it’s usually to find a specific song that I want to listen to.
Weather- The weather app is one of my favorites. I check it before I go to sleep so I know what I’m in for the next day, and when I wake up it helps me decide what to wear.
Maps- I would be lost without this app… literally. I use it in place of a GPS whenever I’m driving somewhere and its been helping me navigate my way around the city!
Notes- I use this pretty often to jot down reminders for myself, grocery lists, songs that I want to download, etc.
iTunes- I didn’t transfer my music to my phone so I never use this app. But again, I left it on my home screen anyway.
Pandora- Since I didn’t want to take up space with my iTunes library, I use Pandora anytime I want to listen to music. I have tons of stations saved that I listen to mostly in the car, but it’s also great to plug into speakers at a party or get-together.
Utilities (Clock, Calculator, Reminders, Settings, etc)- Things I don’t use that often, but I like to have them handy on the home screen. The alarm clock is really the only one I use on a daily basis.
Phone- The only necessary app- I tend to use my favorites and recent calls lists more than my actual contacts when making phone calls.
Mail- Another important app that I use throughout the day as I receive e-mails.
Safari- I look at least one thing up on a daily basis so Safari is up there with texting on my list of most utilized apps.
Music- Yet another useless app that takes up space on my home screen since I don’t have any music on my phone.
We’d like to see what app you use on a daily basis. Send us your home screen and your thoughts about the apps you use. Email us.
