As a matter of fact, according to Statista, (https://www.statista.com/apps-available-in-leading-app-stores/) in 2017 there were 2.8 million apps for download on Google Play, and 2.2 million to choose from in the Apple Store!
There are literally millions of apps available that claim to organize your life and boost your productivity. Trying to analyze your tasks and responsibilities, and choosing apps to create a smooth system that will effectively manage those chores can leave your head spinning.
Our tendency is to give in to shiny object syndrome every time we see a new app with a must-have feature. Each app is set up to solve one problem, which leaves us trying to solve 23 problems with 23 apps, leading to app overload.
When we’re overloaded with apps in our workflow system, we have to switch back-and-forth between them in order to complete the tasks that the apps are there to simplify.
Another word for switching back-and-forth is multitasking, and as a rule human brains are notoriously bad at it.
