Those little squares on our phones are portals to a whole lot of essential–and nonessential–aspects of life. From navigation to shopping, social to fitness, mindless to productive, Meagan and Sarah break down the apps on our phones in today’s More Than Mom edition of The Mom Hour. Join us!

Links we mentioned (or should have) in this episode:
- Sarah uses Pocket Casts to listen to podcasts
- We mentioned Voxer a few dozen times (and! fun fact! our sound editor helped us fox the unheard messages glitch!)
- Sarah struggles with Google Keep, but wants to love it; meanwhile, Evernote plugs along as a good-enough note-taking solution
- Sarah likes Accuweather for the radar and maps
- Here’s how we figured out our most-used apps: Settings > Battery > “Last 10 Days” > “Show Activity”
- We talked about our mixed feelings for Waze
- Sarah’s go-to photo editing app is Snapseed, which she learned to use even better after reading Jill Kraus’s eBook Picture Play
