First 5 apps you install when setting up a new phone


#1

If you setup a phone from scratch (i.e. without using restore from backup function) what would be the first 5 apps you would install?


#2

I just did this with an iPhone. First 5 apps were 1Password, Gmail, Gboard, Google Maps, and Google Photos.
Sorry Monzo :astonished: I think if it was an Android you would have been number 2 or 3!

Outlook, Facebook, WhatsApp, SkyNews, GarminConnect

Unsurprisingly that is also 3 of my most used apps from the ScreenTime feature. Monzo scored #7 if you’re interested :smiley:

I quite like Agenda, find it handy for work/meeting notes.

Still use Apple Notes for all my personal stuff.


(Nick) #17

If you’ve used Bear, how does it compare?

EDIT: It looks much easier to separate things… Bear gets messy.

Bear vs Agenda?

I have no use for Markdown, so that was an easy one to count against Bear. It just felt very Markdown oriented, and would only give you rich text if you exported/previewed. If I was doing actual writing, as opposed to just notes, I’d look again at Bear. Also, I’m not a fan of the subscription model.

Agenda is more like Apple Notes that you can link to calendar events. I find that useful for meetings, so you can quickly jump back and see what was said. It also lets you do checklists, which is handy.

EDIT: more thoughts on Agenda.
