• He had downloaded what’sapp in his android phone.
• After he told me, I also downloaded it.
• It is a very interesting app.
• This app helps us to send messages to our friends and we can also send images and videos to them.
• When new version of what’sapp was launched, a new feature of audio call was also added.
• To use the new feature the other person should also have what’s app account.
• It brings the people very near to our heart.
• Mostly I use this app to communicate with my best friend living in Las Vegas.
• About 2 decades ago we had to send the letter to our friend living in abroad
and we have what for reply for long time.

• The only drawback of this app is that it is very distracting.
• The users want to constantly keep checking their messages. Studies are affected. Workplace productivity is also affected.
• So, such apps should be used wisely.
1. What kinds of Apps do you have on your phone?
I have many kinds of apps in my phone, such as Whatsapp, Facebook, Amazon, Flipkart, Viber and so on. I use these apps for staying connected with my friends and relatives and also for doing online shopping.
2. What are the drawbacks of having too many apps on your phone?
There are many disadvantages of having too many apps on the phone. Firstly, these apps occupy space. Secondly, when you use too many apps, the battery of the phone also gets discharged very soon. Furthermore, these apps can misuse your personal information, as most of these apps can access your personal information from your phone. Moreover, these apps can fill our mobile devices with lot of spam. Finally, you need to update these apps from time to time.
3. How much time do you spend on these APPs?
I spend a lot of time on apps. These are very addicting. Even though, sometimes, I resolve in my mind not to use them very often, I cannot resist the temptation, and once I open any app, I end up wasting a lot of time.
4. Do you like to look for new APPs or just keep using the old ones?
I like to look for new apps, but as my phone has limited space, I download and install any app, after seeing and discussing all its features with my friends.
5. Do you use free APPs or the ones that you need to pay for?
I mostly use free apps. There are many free apps of shopping sites and dictionaries etc. which I use regularly.
