In one of my last posts I was writing about my software testing tools that I am using on a daily basis during work. After writing the post about the software testing tools, this post about my mobile apps came to my mind. I am always asking other people what kind of apps they are using and I get this question from time to time as well.
Therefore, I wanted to provide you with an overview of the apps I am using on a daily basis on my Nexus 5.

- Whats App: This should be clear, using for messaging
- Threema: Using it because some friends thinks it is more secure.
