What is the first app you download on a new device?

When you get a new device, what is the first app you download? For me, it's either Twitter or Snapchat.

    I listen to music and podcasts all day so this is essential for me to have from the very beginning. It was actually my first download on my new Pixel XL. Pretty much the only time I hit pause during a work day is for Product Hunt team meetings!

    I am trapped in the Spotify ecosystem. Not exactly a bad thing, regardless of the device I am using, I can have access to all my favourite songs and playlists AND with the ability to upload your own music from your hard drive and listen to it within the Spotify app, I'm never away from my songs. I am still trapped, however.

    The best password manager out there. Plus, I can't sign into anything without it 😄
    This is technically my second install but my most important since I need access to my passwords. Dropbox is my first install since I use it to sync my password vault.

    If you're a gmail user, the Inbox app by Google for iPhone is great. Simple design and great reminder/notification system.

    Slack, it's a place where is my whole team.
    I'm in quite a few teams. Strangely, my team doesn't feel the love for it as I do. Orlando Devs is the richest (most diverse) one I've found. Online Geniuses (most value)

    Much better than Whatsapp because of a native desktop app, makes cross-platform messaging seamless. Great for sending files/photos as well - no size limits!

    Take better notes, your way

    I just got the new iPad and the first app I downloaded was NoteLedge (a note-taking application), because I've used it previously on my iPhone and wanted to see what it'd be like to use it on a bigger screen. I'm someone who has several note-taking apps, but I use NoteLedge the most for note-taking at school, occasional journaling and adding notes to my calandar for better time management. I think NoteLedge is a fairly good note-taking app because it's both functional, fun and intuitive.

    This app was one of the first ones I downloaded because I was using it every day for notes and had to get it again on a new device (phone). It has become indespensible to me in many ways.

    I firmly beleive that NoteLedge has to be installed on everybody's device simply due to the fact that it's a great app for taking all kinds of notes, sketching, organizing files and web-content. One of my favorites.
