The Apps We’re Most Thankful For

Remember back in the day when your smartphone wasn’t so smart? Remember when your laptop was pretty much just a fancy word processor? Then came apps. Lots and lots of apps. The interconnected world of apps has made our lives more productive and frankly, more fun!

While we give thanks this holiday to the most important things in our lives: our families, friends and health; here at Backupify we also reflected on the many apps that we’re thankful for. The most popular apps called out were Spotify, Evernote, and Uber. All of these apps have absolutely been game changers. But there are so many more. We love our apps and on the eve of Thanksgiving we’re sharing our APPreciation (see what I did there).
