What Apps Do Women Use With Their Smartphones?

Here are some interesting facts about Women and their Cell Phones.

  • Women spend more time using their smartphones than men.
  • 86% of women will look at social media before deciding to make a purchase.
  • 81% of Pinterest users are actually Females.
  • 68% of Instagram users are Females.
  • Facebook users are 53% female and 47% male.
  • Women may be more inclined to use cellphones for social reasons such as texting or emails to build relationships and have deeper conversations, one study suggests.

Women in our lives include Wives, Girlfriends, Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, Friends, and Coworkers. Women are using their Cell Phones and more appropriately Smartphones to help them in so many areas of their lives.

How women use their Smartphones

It starts with the alarm in the morning, a third of women look at their phone as soon as they wake up. Then it probably proceeds to either looking at who texted or emailed them last night to the morning news.  Almost all women who have a smartphone look at them on a daily basis.

Research is showing that younger women such as Millennials, and Generation Z (What’s after Z? Alpha) always have their smartphones. This is how they communicate and not so much talking on the smartphone as texting and emailing.  Tablets, laptops, and desktop computers plus a smartphone means that over 60 percent of women own two or more mobile devices and use them on a daily basis.

Not counting using their smartphone as a telephone; Women also use their smartphone constantly as their Camera, Alarm Clock, Calendar, Weather Predictor, Navigator Map, Trip Planner, Shopping, Media News Source, Entertainment, Games, Media Player, Encyclopedia, Cook Book, Work Out Connection, and Communicator for Texting.

Men send about the same number of emails as women but spend less time on them. "That may suggest that they're sending shorter, more utilitarian messages than their female counterparts,"

Women with Smartphone Cameras

 

In 2015 this photo went viral because it showed a lone older women in a crowd watching an event and she is the only one that did not have cell phone camera in her hand. She was just watching the event and in the moment. But it also shows where we are today with technology and have so many devices in one package, our smartphone.

Most women don’t carry a camera anymore. The typical smartphone comes with at least one camera. Some of the most amazing photos are coming from regular people being at the right place at the right time because they have a camera in their smartphone.

There are so many ways to use your smartphones camera and this also includes shopping.  The Apps that you can load on your cell phone make that possible. For example CamFind.com, the world's first successful mobile visual search engine, allows you to search for anything on your mobile device just by taking a picture.

From the CamFindapp Website “Need help finding something you own but don't remember exactly where you bought it? Find something interesting while grabbing coffee and want to buy it for yourself? Snap a picture with www.CamFindapp.com, ask a question about the product in the description of your post, and then receive answers in comments. It’s as easy as that!”

So I took a picture of the cup below with the www.CamFindapp.com App and then click on the shopping cart in the app. Then as the other picture shows the list of mugs that comes up then you click on and it takes you to the website to buy it. Wow.

Women and Smartphone Shopping Apps

The smartphone is becoming an important tool for shoppers. A recent study that found consumers and women more willing to consult their smartphones than store associates while shopping in stores.

In a 2015 Pew Research Center survey, 59% of U.S. adults say that they have used their cellphone to call or text someone while inside a store to discuss purchases they are thinking of making. Just under half (45%) have used their phones while inside a store to look up online reviews or to try and find a better price online for something they are thinking of purchasing. And a relatively small share of Americans (12%) have used their smartphones to physically pay for in-store purchases.

According to some research results, half of U.S. adults (51%) report making online purchases with their smartphone, many are also use their phones while in a physical store. The top uses of smartphones while in a store include researching product information and checking or comparing prices. This kind of behavior is even more prevalent among younger shoppers under the age of 35.

Woman and Smartphone Navigation Apps

Any women, man, or smartphone user who ever has been lost can tell you what a wonderful thing navigation apps, such as Google Maps and Apple Maps are. But Apple Maps has gotten me lost as many times as it has found my destination so I quit using it.

Google Maps is the most popular navigation app by a wide margin: Over two-thirds (67%) of respondents say they use it most frequently. Waze comes in second at 12%.

So for me I put all of my appointments in my Google Calendar with an address. When I go to leave for the appointment if I don’t know where it is when I get in my vehicle I just go to my appointment in my calendar in my iPhone and click on the address. The destination comes up, I click on it and it will sync with my vehicle and talk me to the destination. Wonderful!!

Women with Media Player Audio Books and Music

The list and options are so numerous and amazing today with our choices of selections for options with entertainment from our smartphones. I say over and over again that I listen to books all of the time on my iPhone with my Audiobook Apps and my Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones.

It is such a joy and a pleasure to do my morning exercise in this way and starts my day on a positive note with new information in so many ways it is difficult to describe and convey. There is absolutely nothing wrong with reading books the old fashioned way but for a busy person like me I just don’t have the time to sit down and do that. I have tried it at night before bed and works like a great sleeping pill and knocks me out so thank goodness for Audio Books!!

Headphones Vs Earphones – Which are More Convenient?

by Sam Smith September 29, 2019

When I stop and actually think about it, headphones and earphones have been an important part of my life. Regardless of which device they were attached to, they have always enabled me to lose myself in a good audiobook or one of my favorite albums while I go about my day completing a range of tasks. Frankly, my life would be less entertaining without them and I’d arguably be a much less well-rounded person.
