Making the decision to remove the apps that serve to distract rather than enhance has been a success. The only apps I have on my phone are the ones that are meant to interrupt whatever I’m doing… phone, SMS, email. Everything else has been moved to my iPad. The apps on my iPad are the ones where I might want to do some casual reading or searching such as twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and a few others. And if there is a link that needs some concentrated reading I always forward the links to my email or cloud bookmarks for reading or research later when I can dedicate focused attention.
What a great decision! I feel better already!
