I had my first fight with my BFF, also known as my iPhone.
Let’s back up. One of my favorite features of the iPhone 4 is organizing my apps into folders like this:
Until I take a closer look at my BFFs and my downloading and organizing decisions.
Here is a closer look at my Social Life folder:
My social life includes Chipotle, ranking movies on Flixster and more takeout. Also, that is exactly as many apps as I have filed under weather:
After reeling from that factoid, I move on to my Social Media folder to feel better. (Just like in real life.)
How great! Until I realize that my Social Media folder is not only the largest folder on my iPhone, but it contain not one, not two, but four separate apps to access Twitter JUST IN CASE THREE APPS GO DOWN. I’m now becoming concerned and a little offended.
So I move on to the bottom row of iPhone apps. For those sad people, unfamiliar with the iPhone, the bottom row is where an iPhone user can keep her four most-used apps for immediate accessibility.
Well, I have a calendar, a web browser, email and Google maps. Because using my phone to make PHONE CALLS is not really a concern of mine. In fact, the PHONE OPTION is hidden under the folder “People”.
If I could, I would justify my lack-of-phone on my phone by labeling the four bottom apps Apps-I-Need-To-Dangerously-Access-In-The-Car. But the iPhone won’t let me label those in my defense.
Thanks a lot, iPhone, for organizing my life into Twitter and pathetic.
At least I’m never without burritos.
