I know only a handful of people who do not own a cell phone and sometimes I envy them. I, like most people these days, own a smartphone.
Many people also own tablets and laptop computers, though probably not as many that own smartphones.
While these devices can be utilized for many practical functions, they can also easily be used as a distraction.
Checking email, social media updates, and playing games are great for killing time. But they can also kill time. As in, “Where did the last three hours go? I remember opening the Vine app and the next thing I know, it’s dark outside, I’ve missed dinner and now Johnny Carson, er, Jimmy Fallon is saying goodnight.”
Sound familiar? So what do you think that does to your creativity? Are you more or less creative around your devices?
I will occasionally use a note taking app, but still prefer to put pencil to paper to write. Most of my art is done with a paintbrush or a pencil but I will occasionally use digital apps like Procreate to help sketch out the next stage of a project.
Do you have any favorite apps that encourage creativity?
