These days, everyone has a smartphone. You’ve got one. Your mom has one. Hell, even the 2nd graders down the street have one, and they probably know more about how to operate it than the techs at Apple do. That being said, one of the greatest features of smartphone and tablet technology is the plethora of Apps being developed by everyday geeks faster than you can switch from an Android to an iPhone* (*contract restrictions may apply). Join us this week as we discuss some of our favorite Apps. Whether it’s useful time wasters (aka games), infinite knowledge at our finger tips, or the ability to stay organized at work, at the gaming table, or in the daily grind of life in general, we’re not really sure how we used to function without them. So, make sure your battery is charged, the touch screen is polished up, and your notepad app is open and ready as we discuss it all on this weeks new episode of Monkey in the Cage.
