My Favourite Mobile Apps: Twitter, MyDigi App, Burpple and more

If you know me in real life, you’d know that I am obsessed with my mobile phone. I am one of those people who take out their phones during brunch with friends. I know it sounds rude, but in all fairness, my friends do it too. We still do have meaningful conversations but we set a timer and give everyone ten minutes of phone time, so it’s not as bad as you think.

I have a total of about maybe 80 apps (if not more) in my phone and I’m gonna share with you some of my favourite ones. It’s a combination of convenient apps that have helped me tremendously, and apps that I’m low-key addicted to because they’re so fun and keeps me occupied during my daily morning commute.

1. Twitter

Honestly, Twitter is the most entertaining app I have on my phone. This is where I get my memes, animal content, updates and news. However, I should warn that sometimes Twitter can get pretty intense because it really does cover a lot of different topics and some should come with trigger warnings. But if you stick to the memes and the cat videos, you’ll be fine.

2. MyDigi App

MyDigi App

Now this mobile app is really handy to have on your phone, especially if you are a Digi user. The app was recently revamped and I really like the new upgrades that they have for the app. One of it being the Box of Surprise feature that gives out pretty good offers on the regular. The feature that I love the most from the MyDigi app is the convenience to check data quota whenever I need to. As I’m still using a prepaid plan, I also treat it as a top up app for whenever I need to buy internet add on when my data runs out. You can download the app from the

3. Burpple

I guess I’m a foodie and I need some kind of app to document all the food that I eat. Yes, there’s Instagram for this sort of thing but I don’t really want to flood my feed with food photos — it gets annoying after the eighth food photo post. Besides, this app is really useful to check on restaurant opening hours and see what people usually order.

4. XE Currency Converter

Okay so I have a problem. I’m a shopaholic. I shop too much online and I am fully aware that it’s bad but don’t worry, I can afford it. A lot of the places that I shop from are overseas and it really varies. I shop for clothes from the UK, records from Japan, books from America, and more. I’m horrible at converting the prices so thank god for the XE app to help me convert the prices before I add things to my cart.

5. Genius

Formerly known as Rap Genius, this app is really useful for when you want to look up the meaning to your favourite songs. I know some people don’t really care about the lyrics sometimes but when I really like a song, I need to know the context of what the song is about.

So that’s my top five favourite mobile apps. Of course, this list could have gone on much longer but these are the essentials that I think will be really useful.
