What Apps do you use every day?

Curious what everyone uses each day…can be phone or pc.

For me:

Newton Mail, Firefox, Premier Pro, Snapchat, Skype, Spotify, Steam, Todoist, Instgram and occasionally Facebook.

    <p>Phone: Outlook, the resident browser (Edge/Chrome/Safari depending on mobe), device controllers like Alexa, Harmony and Grace for media management. I'm not big on social stuff, so I'm in Twitter or Facebook only occasionally. I don't use the cameras daily, but they get used a lot compared to other things on the phones that I never open.</p><p><br></p><p>PC: Browser (Firefox mostly, but Chrome and Edge sometimes), Outlook, Excel, OneNote, Photos, Notepad (or some similar app), NYTimes crossword.</p><p><br></p><p>That's the daily stuff. Less frequently but still a few times a week I use apps that support inking — sketching, annotation, fast flagging and so forth. When things go sideways I spend some time in PowerShell or a simple Command Prompt window</p><p><br></p><p>This seems kind of dull and limited now that I look at the list. These devices are capable of way more than I ask of them.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#223383"><em>In reply to Bob_Shutts:</em></a></blockquote><p>Word presumably locally but Google Sheets. Excel doesn't cut it, or you use shared spreadsheets, or functions Google Sheets provides which MSFT has stubbornly refused to add to Excel for decades?</p>
