Last year was probably the year where I spent the most money related to the App Store.
This included apps like third-party apps for Twitter and Reddit, and streaming services like Paramount+ through Apple TV Channels.
With that said, here are the apps and services I plan on spending money on in 2022:
- Tweetbot 6: It goes without saying that Tweetbot 6 is my favorite Twitter app in the App Store. Even though it did turn into a subscription-based app last year, I believe that the move has been for the better for the app and its developers. While I do have the official Twitter app on my iPhone 12 Mini, it’s not one that I use often and I still use Tweetbot as my daily driver as a Twitter app.
- Deliveries: This is an app that is on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac that enables you to track packages from providers like USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL and plenty of others. The interface is really nice if you compare it to the ones that mail providers have. Plus, the fact that it has a Mac app too is great for those who are on their Macs during the majority of the day.
- Paramount+ on Apple TV Channels: I have talked so much about this streaming service over the course of the past year and it is still a service that I use weekly. I consistently watch new episodes of CBS’ “Young Sheldon” on it, stream reruns of “Spongebob Squarepants,” watched the new 2021 “iCarly” reboot and have plans of putting it on my mom’s Amazon Fire TV so she can stream the Paramount+ Original “1883.”
- Day One Journal: As stated earlier this month, I do plan on using this more often for life-related journaling. Journaling is something I have already done since my community college days and is a fantastic way of getting your thoughts and emotions out there, as well as a great hobby to have if you truly get into it. I love the fact that I can include photos and videos in my entries too.
- CARROT Weather: It truly is my favorite weather app in the App Store. I just hope that its tvOS app is updated on the Apple TV this year to give it a new modern look and provide some new features like a radar, time travel and extended forecasts.
- Apple Music: I feel like I am one of the few people that actually prefers Apple Music over Spotify, since I was originally a Spotify user in my early college years. After switching to Apple Music while I was at Iowa State University in 2016, I have had no issues with the service at all.
