    So...everyone can laugh, but I don't use apps. None. I use my BB for text, email, calendar, contacts, and so forth. I play an occasional game (hold 'em or this word mole game). Being that I am a tech idiot, I was just always afraid of downloading stuff and what it would do to the device. I've seen plenty of people download the right app, the right version, after all the bugs were worked out, and something still went wrong. Then, the provider blamed BB or the app, BB blamed the app, the app blamed the device. LOL. Anyway, that's my paranoia.

    Maybe one day I'll get out of my own way and start using apps. LOL.

    Apps are like tatoos. Get one and then you need to get another.....and so on, and so on.

    Need might be a strong word, but I've heard they're addictive. Want, maybe?

    My "want" habits are never permanent. I want and then I don't want anymore. So, tattoos are definitely out.

    Apps are an interesting animal of there own. I have probably bought $25 worth, and over the years I have maybe 6 or 7 I use. The others are always there if and when I need them. Alot had to do with work and productivity. Now that I am retired those have been put on the shelf. There are some advantages to getting the paid version, sometimes just enough of a tweak to make it worth the buck or two

    No tats and very few apps. I just don't need that many apps.and I'm sure not going to pay for many of them. Now a navigation app that really worked, maybe

    Get that Note 3, Ben. Comes with maps and with a screen that size, you won't need a standalone GPS.

    ^^^ that's right Ben. With a screen that size you can be guided right across the US without the need to turn the page.
