• There are millions of apps on your smartphone's app store.
  • Only a handful of them are worth your time.

Most people spend the vast majority of their time in just a handful of apps. I'm no exception.

While I keep over 200 apps on my phone for minor things, there are only 14 apps that I regularly turn to. These are my go-to apps that make my life easier, more productive and more enjoyable. If you want to get the most out of your phone, I recommend having these essential apps.
