Do I really this app?

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun . .  especially Fridays before holiday weekends. There was a time when I was into downloading apps for my phone. I am so over that. It seems like every business that I deal with has an app I can download. Often the app takes the place of information that can easily be found on the internet using a smartphone or computer.

A couple of weeks ago we had to replace our washer. The new washer like many new appliances these days can connect to the internet. I don’t want my washer to be hacked so I leave it offline when not in use. 🙂

Here is a screenshot from my last load of wash:

I like having the alert on my phone so that I know when the load is done, I like to keep things moving along. The app is animated and shows exactly what the washer is doing real-time.  It is soothing to watch because the water sloshes back and forth. My inner geek couldn’t resist at least trying it out.
