Which App is the Last You’d Delete Off Your Phone?

By Kate Knibbs on at

I deleted an app off my phone today. I download, test and delete apps regularly; it's part of the whole tech writer thing. There are some I'd have a hard time parting ways with: The Slack app lets me stay in touch with work when I'm away from my computer, so it's an essential. Spotify makes going to the gym so much more bearable when I know I can stream what I want that it's hard to imagine why I'd ever banish it.

But narrowing it down to just one app in this cruel hypothetical is tough. Even though the company often uses dirtbag tactics, the convenience of having the ability to call an Uber car has been pretty stellar this shitty winter, so until the weather gets nicer that might be the one I'd choose above all others, as guilty as it makes me feel to admit it.

What about you? If you could only keep one app on your phone, which one would it be?
