With today's on-the-go globalized world, we have seen rapid proliferation of mobile apps for every type of phone and every type of Personality Style. The saying "There's an app for that" couldn't be more true. And as we move into the busy new year, we are finding ourselves using our phones even more to navigate traffic, for productivity in using our time more wisely, for finding the best sales, and yes, for gaming - providing a relief from every day stress. Because our phones are always with us, apps become extensions of ourselves.
According to Statista.com, there are over two million apps for Google Play and Apple respectively, and hundreds of thousands for Blackberry, Amazon, and Windows phones. A whopping 60,000 new apps are being added each month. According to TechCrunch.com, the average person spends at least five hours each day on their phone.
So with so many app-happy people out there, we thought we would take a minute to reflect on which type of app is most enjoyed by which type of DISC Personality Style.
Branch Messenger Work Schedule App: you work in a leadership role and this app will make that a breeze. You can manage schedules of yourself and coworkers, discuss topics in groups and manage shifts. As a dominate personality you don't let time go wasted and this app will keep you on top of your own, and everyone else's schedules.
Planner Pro Daily Calendar: this is another app that will help with time management. But unlike the Branch Messenger Work Schedule this app will help you breakdown your own tasks. This is not just a digital planner but it can track to do lists by tasks, projects, statuses or subtasks. You can also take notes as you go along and the entire app will sync to all your devices.
Snapchat: you love talking with others but unlike the S Personality, your conversations are often less conversational and more sporadic. You want something quick and easy that will give you the availability to talk to one person, or everyone on your contacts list. The perfect app? Snapchat. You love social media and this is the best app to show off your personality with Bitmojis and your creative side with the filters, captions and drawing options. This also gives you the option to just send it to your story because you love the attention this app allows.
Reports: you love to boost your followers and likes. This app does just that. Report allows you a free list of followers, unfollowers, those who don't follow you back and those you don't follow back. You can also get a list of people who "stalk" your profile and those who have blocked you for additional fees. You love having far over 100 likes and this app will help you do just that.
Groupme: You love having meaningful conversations with anyone who needs to talk it out. Unlike the D Personality, you can always shy away from just the business talk' and unlike the I Personality, your conversations are all about providing a support system. Groupme will do just that. You can have group conversations even when not everyone has the iPhone. You can also have multiple groups going on at once.
Viber: Viber is similar to Groupme and is all about the conversation. However, you can also have video calls for those people you don't get to see as often in person.
Facebook: You like the ability to keep up with all your friends. Facebook is a great place to see what everyone is sharing. Whether that's new jobs, family photos or the inevitable friend and family get togethers.
LinkedIn: when it comes to your career, you're a complete perfectionist. This makes you an automatic guru for a LinkedIn app. With this app you're not forced to look through hundreds of photos from peers. You don't have to see that the girl in the corner office got a little crazy after work last Friday. You have contacts at your fingertips without the hassle of looking through everything else.
Schedule Planner DIGI 117 LT: you refuse to waste your time without results and this app lets you do just that. The planner not only lets you plan out your entire day, but it tracks how much time it takes to complete each task. This way you know what to cut back and what items on your to do list may take a little more time. You will also have daily percentages and other statistics about your time spent in multiple forms.
