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 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
