Smartphone Apps You’re Using Wrong

Keith Bell, ThinkStock

Is it just me, or are our phones smarter than we are? One thing is for certain, if you’re using your “Notes” like I am, you’re doing it wrong.

Notes is a great feature on an iPhone and it’s a simple concept: jot down what you need to remember and move on with your life. No need to dig around for a piece of scratch paper or a pen that probably doesn’t have ink in it anyway.

However, a note is only as good as its author.

I scrolled through my Notes last night and found some problems. Maybe these are deep, resonating, psychological problems within my sub-conscience that need to be examined by a professional. But for now, I choose to laugh at myself.

First off, I am a note hoarder. There. I said it. I have countless notes to scroll through. Some are “To-Do” lists from when I was planning my wedding… last year. Some are grocery store lists from two months ago. And shockingly, I still need hand soap for the guest bathroom.

Secondly, half of my notes don’t make any sense at all. One note has a number on it, too long to even be a phone number. I have three lists of ingredients for dishes I don’t know how to make, nor know what they are supposed to look like once they’re finished. I also found a note that is just titled “Home”, without any content whatsoever.

And still, here I sit trying to figure out why I can’t remember anything these days.

What “simple” apps on your phone are you using wrong?
