What Is A Good App??

Not sure I wanted to put this under Reviews or not but decided on Technology. We all have iPads, iPhone, Notebooks, smart phones, tables and the list goes on and on.

When I first started to do reviews on iPhone and iPad Applications I had no idea there were so many out there and the numbers grew over the years. So, what makes a good application for your personal use or business use?

There are many factors, one would be the ease of use. Sounds simple enough doesn't it? However, some apps are more complicated then they need to be. For me, that means that particular one is for someone very knowledgeable who can figure out all the bells and whistles. I can't, trust me on that one.

I downloaded hundreds of apps over the years and found myself leaning towards the more simplified ones. Once I found one that was easy to click here and click there, I compared it to the more difficult one I really wanted but didn't know how to use. One thing I found out is they are basically the same, they do basically the same, and give me basically what I need.

So, when you are ready to download an app first thing is look at the freebies first, most of them are just as good as the ones you have to pay for. The most important part of all this is download what you can really use, like and make the most of.

I have a navigation app in my iphone that I use all the time. It's called MotionX.

Scorpie see that works for you so you can use it. However, it might not work for someone else. The thing is you have to be happy and have an app easy to you. Thanks for letting me know about that one. Perhaps, someone might test it out for themselves.

Apps can be very useful as can extensions to your browser. I don't use many apps but I do use some very clever and time-saving extensions to my browser. The only problem with them is that too many will slow your computer down and some an actually interfere with its performance. It's a matter of knowing which ones to choose - just like apps.

I have mostly health and fitness apps. I do agree the simpler apps work better for me. I despise those complicated ones with a passion!

&alleln0187 thanks for leaving a comment about apps. I have downloaded some that were too complicated to even get started. I deleted them quickly!!!!
