At the start of the new year, Apple’s App Store advertised a wide range of applications ready for download that would supposedly get its users organized,
healthy and active.

After countless minutes wasted browsing through the endless options of apps promising us impeccably arranged schedules, willpower against carbs and a super
model bod.

It is hard to imagine these apps actually work, let alone save our time.

One of the most common type of apps, besides those involving social media, are those listed under the category productivity.

Planners and online calendars take over this category and are oftentimes downloaded, and just as quickly forgotten about.

Not to mention it takes longer to type in events in a virtual planner than to simply write an old-fashioned list on a sheet of paper.

Apps prove counterproductive in more ways than one, however.

The simplest of games charge iPhone users’ accounts $1.99 or more for its players to become addicted to the tiny screen for hours on end.

No matter what Apple advertises, absolutely nothing says “productive” about that image.

The most app-alling moment of all occurs when Apple sends a notification that storage is almost full.

Apps that took time to download only waste precious storage, or end up deleted altogether.

Sorry, Apple. This year, time will not be wasted on mind-numbing apps.
