My iPhone apps

Not the first and without a doubt not the last. I decided to post some pics of the current apps on my iPhone.

You know how it goes, you  attend a meeting, Open Coffee, Get together or any other occasion and people owning an iPhone flock together bending over the others iPhone to check out the newest, missing or coolest app. Well here you find the ones that are currently on my iPhone.

I started of downloading all sorts of apps just for the fun of it and because it is sooo easy. Deleting them when I got bored with them or had no real use.

The apps on my iPhone are a mixture of “essential”, useful, fun, interesting from a marketing/concept point of view. There comes a  moment in time that you’ll start  to categorize the apps. (I’ve seen people colour coordinating them)

I obviously had a categorize phase too, but then you delete and add new ones and you end up with partly coordinated, partly apps all over the phone. And that’s what you’ll find in the pictures of my apps.

On the first page: all the apps that I use frequently. Which turned out to be the Social Media kinda apps.
