That's what we said: All about apps

Fiona Nematbakhsh, St. Petersburg High

"Angry Birds because it helps me relax and it helps me relieve frustration with school."

"Spotify and Yelp because I like music and finding places to eat."

"The surf report app because I can look at it and within minutes know what the surf is like at the beaches I go to."

"I like mmm fingers because it's such a fun game."

"Plant Nanny because it forces me to be healthy, because it guilts me into drinking more water."

"I would say Netflix for sure. I go on it all the time ,and there are so many options for each genre and it's really good to just pass the time."
