    Mostly just web browsers for when I'm at the airport and youtube/twitch for falling asleep to.

    Those and some two factor authentication things I need for work/games and that is mostly it.

    The only apps I really use are Steam and BBC News. I have a couple of random games that I don't really play, a couple a browsers, and formerly shit like Instagram and Snapchat that I deleted shortly after.

    That's what I use it for (at least most of the time :cat:).
    I still do think that anonymous posting is much better for healthy&productive discussions than reddit / any kind of forum is.

    For any of you looking for sports streams on Mobile. Mobdro is a pretty good app. Its split up by channel so sometimes a bit fiddly but always get good quality.

    Steam.

    I don't browse the internet with my smartphone. It's mostly for alarm and Steam logins aside from the obvious calling and texting.

    Evernote for me, I usually make my WIP suggestions there, or drop some random ideas I came up during my travels, will be a shame if I didn't jot it down.

    Then I use a combination of Camera360, Layout, and eZy Watermark Lite to finish and add touch-ups to my Instagram posts. I came to appreciate the quickness of having these apps, as opposed to an older self that sticked to Photoshop to death.

    I don't use that many. Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram (although I don't actually post pictures), Accuweather. I have reddit but I prefer the computer version.
