9 apps for weather? Whyyyyyy
That's the only category I can kind of understand. I've yet to see a perfect weather app. Yahoo is closest, but it still isn't exactly what I'd like.
But I still only keep one weather app on my phone...
Totally agree here. What's sad is even though most apps now give me what I need most (precipitation percentage and wind direction) I still end up at the mobile NWS site.
I could understand a few as well, sometimes different weather apps provide different information so it's good to get an idea. When I did my time in NJ, I got very skewed ideas of snowfall.
I've found Weather Underground to be my go-to. It has a great layout, radar map, and all the stats one could want for a 5 day outlook.
I'm consistently befuddled by the apparent difficulty in simply stating the current and future weather. I'm not looking for anything fancy, but most apps out there are a mess.
Eye in the Sky became my go to on Android but I rarely found one with good, reliable data.
I completely agree with you. Apparently, I'm a digital packrat!
Haha, I'm sorry. Should we get you on hoarders?
LOL Next up on Hoarders: Digital Lifestyles is Dave Schumacher he has 9 weather apps lets see if we can help dave...
I am in the process of making Cyanogenmod my main OS and using open source software as much as possible with Amazon App Store filling in the gaps. That limits my options and sort of forces me to have only one or two apps for each task. It will get more streamlined when I can finally run a Linux distro as my mobile OS in place of Cyanogenmod.
On the phone I am moving my personal stuff off of to make it for work stuff only, the story is different:
- Camera apps 9
- Non-service-specific media players 7
- Remote screen apps 3
- Text editors 7
I may end up in the same boat with these categories when the dust settles on my new setup since it is hard to find a single app in any of these categories that completely covers my use cases.
Weather: 3 apps
umm Social media... my Samsung Galaxy SIII is my twiteringFacbokingGooglePlussingEmailingSometimes IUseItAsAPhone and oh Yeah NewEggBestBuyAmazonShoppingPizzaOrdering I know I have a Problem but there is no support group for what I have....
2 photography (vsco/instagram), 3 social (FB/twitter/Gmail), 2 māls (google/mapswithme). nexus 5. Never had more thamn 3 apps for acategory
I'm a bit OCD so I can't have too many on my phone that I don't use. I think the one category I overdo it is social, if I count social media specific apps, I'm at 20.
Other than games, the most in 1 category WAS Twitter. However, I delete clients I don't like and don't have any 2 apps that simply duplicate functionality.
The only exceptions are alternatives to stock apps and keeping the stock apps because there's no easy way to remove them. Ex. HTC Calendar sucks, so I downloaded the official Google Calendar app instead. Same thing with the HTC Notes app, so I use Evernote.
I guess the closest thing would be Drive and Dropbox, though I use those for different purposes. Drive is an office app for me, whereas Dropbox is for real storage.
Mine is hands down camera apps. i have 12 freakin camera apps that basically do the same thing. I just forget to delete ones i no longer use. I was using camera+ as my main cam app but now i've been using VSCO a lot more. Before that i was using pro camera. i have a problem. weather apps is 2nd but that's only like 5 apps i think. now, notes apps on my iPad mini retina, that's another story. I don't have 16 but maybe 10. Weird part is, i do not do this on my macbook air. I stick with one or two.
