Week 18: Apps: Time Wasters or Savers?
I thought I wouldn’t have much to write for Marketing for Romance Writers 52-Week Blog Challenge Blog Hop for this topic. #MFRWauthor.
Then I picked up my phone and tablets to view my apps. Whether or not apps are time wasters depends on how we use them. Wasting time is beneficial at times. A fun game app can be a good escape as can a Kindle or other eBook reading tablet, or a music app for relaxation. Many apps are necessary for business. I wonder how I got along without some of them.
The topic doesn’t ask for the apps I use though I listed them.
Apps I use:
Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn Internet Radio App
Amazon Music to listen to my purchased Music
Kindle app on my computer and iPad – Pleasure and Business
iPad – Pleasure and Business
Google Keep – Note taker but so much more. Keep has so many options. Check it out.
Buffer – For scheduling Tweets (If only I used this more often.)
KDP Rocket – Keyword Generator for my Amazon Ads. This app both kills time and saves time.
WordPress – Access to my website and blog when not on my laptop.
Kindle – Other than reading, I use this to proof my own books by having it read to me. It’s amazing how many times I use though instead of through. I check my formatted docs on the Kindle app too.
One of my favorites is Google Keep—a note taking app but it’s so much more. Here are some links with information about Google Keep to give you an idea why I like it so much.
Grab it here if interested.
Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with Apple, Google or Google Keep, nor am I being compensated for mentioning this app. Simply, I like the app. Maybe you will too.
A few of my apps are time wasters. Most aren’t.
I could live without some of these but I choose not to today.

All the counties around me, including mine, are in a State of Emergency due to flooding. You might’ve seen some of the Metro Detroit area on the nightly news. It’s bad for some. Luckily for me, I’m at a higher elevation. Near where my brother lives, it’s flooded around them, but not their immediate area though my sister-in-law said getting out takes some strategy in navigating. My brother is living on oxygen 24/7 now, so it’s important that they can get out if necessary.
Stay dry. Everyone stay safe no matter where you live.
