I apparently have a crappy memory. Like, one time I forgot my own loving grandfather outside of church, until I got home and my mom asked if I dropped him home. He waited outside for 30 minutes and when I came back (in tears, of course, because how could his favorite granddaughter do that to him…) all he said, with a loving grandfather smile, “Eat almonds.” That’s why he rocks.
And I do eat almonds. All. The. Time. But…nothing. I didn’t need to forget my iPhone password and have it RESET ITSELF TO FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS to tell me that, yall. True story.
So since I had to re-download all my apps and use my god forsaken memory to remember all the precious apps and their respective passwords, I realized this was a moment where I can weed out the bad apps and download only the ones I use and need. And just in case something horrid like this happens to you, here is a list of all the apps every PR gal should have on her phone:
Starbucks: I refuse to start my day without coffee. Gold card, wassup.
Genius Scan: Who really knows how to use scanny thingy ma bop? Ok. Well if you don’t (like me) this app is God send. Just by using your camera phone, you can email your documents where they need to go. I didn’t know scanner apps existed until I needed a scanner and the alternative of buying one sounded outdated…Plus you can’t carry a scanner around with you.
Cardmunch: Did I ever tell you that I received a platinum business card? No joke. I’m going to pawn it off. But seriously, networking events are stressful enough as is but weeks later all the millions of business cards start collecting dust. Cardmunch is so obvious, I am mad I didn’t come up with it myself. Snap a picture of the business card and it is instantly added to your contacts. BFFL for life. Just make sure you don’t accidently drunk text them.
Google Maps: Let’s be real. We are girls, we suck at directions. I’m totally generalizing but at least you will never be late to an off-site client meeting.
BBM: Holla! When I learned of this magical app I def sent around a mass text to all my homes and skillets to download ASAP, plainly noted how it was useless but #memories. However, Blackberry is still very prominent in the work-world and being able to ping your coworkers + clients is just another way to make friends (aka bother them about getting their crap done without using your texts).
