There Is An App For That

There is an app for that  …How many times and in how many ways do we see this statement today  ? Seems like there is almost nothing anymore  that there is not an app for  . Almost everyday someone makes a new app for something we didn’t even realise   we   needed much less that we wanted 1 for , it never ceases to amaze me just how many  apps there are just right now , never mind the fact that there are people out there still making  more of them !! Makes you wonder why people see life as just something you need to keep making apps for  , why they think that us poor normal people  lol yes there are a few about the place  , need so many apps and  for so many things  ? Until now , meaning the last decade we seemed to get along quite nicely thank you without having  to have an app for so many things  . When we wanted to go out we just looked in the paper or went to the station for bus or train if we didn’t have a car , we didn’t need an app to tell us  when there was a bus or train  going to be there for us.

Amazing how we still got by quite nicely though isn’t it  ? We managed to go out  , do our shopping , go to the doctor,  go to shows , do whatever  without the need to sit down and check an app to find out how, when , where and why about what we wanted to do . Cannot ever remember having trouble  going out to any of these places  or doing any of these things without first checking my app to see if all was well , funny that isn’t it ? Knowing that some people will say yeah yeah because you are an old fart  you would say that , but yes ok I am , but having said that I really truly did get on and still do without a dozen or more apps  to tell me what to do . Guessing I may have about  half a dozen ( if that ) apps on my phone that I actually use , there are more but I never use them as  I do actually know how to think and get around without having to have an app tell me what to do , I still do know how to think and so wish many more people knew how to as well. Yes  I am the first to admit there are some apps that have been very useful  but  I still think we have too many for too many things , sorry but it is true , less is more remember  ?

Telling me that every new app that comes out is a  ” must have  ”  is the surest way  I know  to put me right off ever wanting it , there are very , very few things in my life that come into the category of  ” must have ”  and  I can assure  you  yet another phone app is not 1  of them. Almost sure by now that  I can do what  I need to do and have to do day by day  without having to check an app every time something needs doing , I do still have the ability  to function without an app , trust me on this lol . Well just this morning  I made coffee without an app to tell me how !! Wow !! amazing huh ? There is 1 thing  I can do without an app , and the other  day I actually did the washing without an app to tell me how , lol , see? Even you can do it if you try , you know we can even turn on the  TV and change channels and  things without an app , so you see there are a number of things we can still do without apps no need for an app at every turning so to speak .

Wondering now though ,who sat down 1 day , looked at their phone , and suddenly decided to make a whole lot of apps to put on it  , and make them so inviting that everyone and his dog will want them ? Well he  succeeded  very well for sure  because now everyone not only wants them ,too many cannot even function without them !! Sorry but to me that is just stupid as it makes the phone the intelligent 1 of the partnership. Know what they say and we have all heard this , smart phones dumb people and boy oh boy is that true now and more so every day sadly , now if we could just reverse that and start making the people smarter that would be the best way to go . The way it is now the phone and all it’s apps run the place as too many will not do anything without an app to tell them how , when ,where and why to do it and that is just wrong , talk about dumbing down the people  sheeesh .

Talking about an app for that  wouldn’t it be better if we had apps that made people realise that life  is not lived through an app  ? That people do not need an app to tell them what to do  , that they do have the capacity to think if they would only  put the damm phone down for a change and use what they were born with and learn  to think  for themselves  for a change.  Thinking about it though I am very much afraid this will never happen as people are now younger and younger when they first get phones with all these apps on them thrust into their hands and that is just wrong  but there is no way to stop it now it has become so ingrained into the world .  People  now almost as soon as they have a baby  give it a phone loaded with apps and 1 by 1 they teach them how to use them and to rely on them , they are no longer taught to interact  with other children or other people , all they are taught now is how to use  an app on a phone . This is 1 reason why  I am so very thankful that  I no longer  have to worry about  bringing children into this world . A world that is now more mechanical  than it ever was and the more like this it becomes the more the children  become like that too, which is why the children today are so selfish and have no respect , and most of them have no idea what respect even means now , the phones and apps have taken over. Given the chance  now if it was to be given to me I would say no , never would  I willingly bring a new child into this automated , uncaring world  it is just wrong and not fair to the children is it  ?

 

Being normal? Ugh. I can’t imagine how awful that must be…

I just bumped into a guy wearing a camouflage jacket. I couldn’t see him…
