Weekend poll: When was the last time you bought an app?

Smartphones aren't a new concept anymore, and we have all settled into a specific platform (or two), complete with app purchases to fill out our needs. Plenty of the most essential ones are free these days — though remember what they say, "If you're not the customer, you're the product" — but I'm curious to know, when was the last time you paid for an app?

Weekend poll: What did you do with your last phone when you upgraded?

Weekend poll: What did you do with your last phone when you upgraded?

Buying a new phone is a big decision, especially with the prices these days. For most of us, dropping several hundred bucks isn't something that can be easily done.

They've been around now for over a decade, and though third party support has waxed and waned, we're curious to know: Do you use a widget on your home screen/launcher? If so, how many have you got?

Weekend poll: Do you want us to review Windows laptops?

It's reasonable to assume, given our niche, that all (or almost all) of our readers have a phone.

Weekend poll: Do you use Digital Wellbeing?

Our work/life balance is further out of whack these days than it's ever been. Even with the best time management skills, it's hard to maintain a separation when you're doing that work from home, and often on your personal devices. But tools like Google's Digital Wellbeing can make it a bit easier to stay focused. With it included in plenty of recent phones, do you use any of Digital Wellbeing's tools on your Android phone?
