Diversity Woman cuts through the clutter with some of our favorite apps you might not have discovered. All are for iOS and Android. POCKET How many times have you come across an article or video you don't have time to read but want to dig into later? Many websites or apps allow you to bookmark them to their memory bank—but Pocket lets you save articles from across the Internet (and different web browsers) in one convenient spot. Pocket strips away most of the ads, enables you to save content off-line, and has an intuitive organizational system. ANY.DO For those seeking to simplify task management, we recommend Any.do, as it has an intuitive interface and is still chock-full of features (for $3 a month, you get even more bells and whistles). You can add and arrange lists and tasks, share them, and sync across multiple devices. Everything is in one place. BUFFER Managing your social media accounts just got easier. Buffer allows you to schedule posts for various accounts — Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and others—using a single app. Premium plans come with advanced features like analytics and content creation tools. DOODLE Anyone have a record for the most emails it has taken to schedule a meeting? Dozens, easy, right? Doodle takes away the pain. The event initiator sends out a Doodle poll to participants with choices of dates and times. Everyone selects all those that work for them, and the app finds the slot that matches the most choices. No need to even sign up for the app to use it. Easy! Where We Surf, Then and Now I n 2017, American adults spent on average more than 12 hours a day staring at a screen—and more than three hours a day on a mobile device alone. In 2008, there were no mobile devices. Our screen time was largely television. The Internet was a nascent technology, used mainly for information, not enter- tainment, shopping, and gaming, as it is today. Not surprisingly, Google was the most visited website then, as it is now. It receives 28 billion visits every month, more traffic than the other 1.1 billion websites. Here are the most visited web- sites in the United States in 2008 and 2017. DW Hot List 2017 Google YouTube Facebook Amazon Yahoo! Wikipedia Reddit eBay Twitter Netflix 2008 Google Yahoo! MSN/Windows Live Microsoft AOL Media Network YouTube Fox Interactive Media eBay Wikipedia Apple Versus Most Visited Websites 2008 and 2017
