What's the first app you launch when you're bored?

I hate that when I have a "dull" moment, I launch Facebook. There must be more interesting/stimulating/motivating apps out there. What's yours?

    Instagram gets me. I even watch the stories. I think because they are more discoverable. Also - stories from athletes/celebrities are more interesting than my friends (sorry friends!) πŸ˜€

      Product Hunt 4.0 is the best that has happened to Product Hunt yet. Easily one of my most favorite websites these days, and I see myself coming back daily to maintain my streak. I am at a 20 day streak now and I hope to see badges evolve with daily streaks - some sort of perks for people coming more often?

      This update is super useful for people deciding whether or not to use a product. Sometime you want to do a deep dive into a product before deciding whether or not to use it.

      The "😻 reviews" feature, as well as the "πŸ”— Around the Web" section makes this deep dive super easy.

    YEAH! I always forget about Medium πŸ€”
    • Nathan Brown

      I've loved Medium for a long time - in fact I still hear from people (other authors wanting to link/interview me, prospective clients, etc.) every singe month directly from my very first Medium post.

      Medium on mobile is...so-so. Much better than the original app, but the nature of a content network means there's a ton to fit on a small screen's UX.

      My only real issue with the app is the writing interface (which should be Medium's strongest point if the website is any indication). It's reminiscent of the beloved Medium writing interface, but some of the features

    Not the first thing, but something I'd like to start doing... Journaling your day in 60 second, everyone has time for that, and the end result, and the end of the year (or even month) would be very cool to see and have.

      My reading and listening skills have improved so much since using Duolingo, I couldn't recommend it more. I'm not naive in thinking it will make it fluent as it's not the best for speaking skills but has vastly helped me improve and build up my language confidence.

    The app is very well designed, and it is pleasant to learn about culture and art. There are a few stories every day and it's very visual and interesting.

      I really like this app but enjoy Google in general. Finding rare images can be challenging anyway without specific parameters. Overall good tool.
