Don’t Toss Your Old Phone–Turn it into a Phapp!

Once you’ve upgraded to a new smartphone for a better plan, more data at cheaper prices, or simply for improved performance, by all means do not get rid of your old smartphone!

Your former phone is now a PHAPP, a fabulously useful self-help device you can use in hundreds of fun and inventive ways. Similar in concept to an iPad, your phapp can do everything from serving as a pedometer to recording your success in breaking old habits or learning new ones. Your phapp can play soothing meditations, white noise to sleep by, and all your favorite playlists.

Developers have turned Linux into the magical keystone for hundreds of astonishing, novel, and practical applications. Forget the dead doorstop metaphor, and start combing the Google Play Store to create your personal phapp.

In future posts I will review a few of my favorites, which I am going to be using in 2017 instead of making New Year’s resolutions. Stay tuned! And how about a thumbs up for “phapp”–my latest entry in the Urban Dictionary.
