Be Appy Happy with App Switch & App Social


Switching devices can be frustrating and challenging … most of us tend to just give up and make do with what we can. While some tend to rely on searching and scouring the www for some answers. Knowing not all of my readers are tech-savvy, I’ve decided to create this post to share a little bit about the apps I use on my Lumia 830 (and why I chose those apps). So if you’ve made the switch, or are planning to … then this post is definitely worth reading.

I have customized my home screen with the apps that I use on a regular basis. As you can see most of these are social-media related as I love keeping in touch and making sure that I get to update effortlessly. Then of course Let’s not forget that I also have a few travel-friendly apps to help me get from point A to point B stress free. Last but not the least is my battery status and … “cortana”!

My Favorite Apps

1. Facebook, Twitter & Instagrambest social media network to keep in touch and socialize! Don’t forget to make use of those hashtags! Update and get the word out there.

2. Foursquare & Swarmmy most trusted apps for discovering new spots to check out and visit as well as for finding my way around town. Think of it as an interactive map that is easy to use.

3. Whatsapp, Viber & Skypethe main messaging apps I use to keep in touch with my family, friends and even acquaintances across the world.

4. Fhotoroom, InstaSize & InstaSquarerthese are my instant favorite and highly reliable editing apps to create a beautiful photograph I want to achieve.

5. Sound Hound & SpotifyI wear my heart on my sleeve and music gets me going. These apps are totally amazing.

6. Candy Crush, Escape the Room & Angry BirdsI am a gamer girl and I totally love a good challenge. I have played RPG types for the longest but while on the go and taking road trips these games are on my top choices and keep me entertained.

Personally speaking, making the switch should be fun … after all there is a reason why you switched on the first place. If you have taken a liking on Microsoft’s Lumia devices, get ready to fall in love! With the help of App Social and App Switch, you can rest easy and let the rest take its toll.

So what is App Switch? It makes it easy to find replacement apps for those you had on your old Android or iPhone! Yay. See! Transitioning from the big switch doesn’t have to be difficult at all! Na-uh. While some apps aren’t available on the store just yet, App Switch suggests other apps to try as an alternative of the app that you have once used or a re looking for. Here’s an example …

What about App Social? It came pre-loaded on my Lumia 830 device. It allowed me to discover new apps through the people whom are sharing their trusted app and most recent finds. If you have friends who are already a member of App Social you can simply check out what apps they highly suggest. Check out my App Social profile …

    I have very few apps that I installed in my phone. Most of them are just for social networking, savings-related, and recipes! I like this app, will check into it.

    I’ve never really liked android based phones, they seem too unreliable, but if I ever do make the switch again, this app seems like it would make the transition easier.
