Over the years, our phones have become an important part of our lives. We can barely do without them. We feel lost or incomplete without our phones. The more phones become user-friendly, the more apps are being developed. These apps have become as essential as our phones because we must use them every day. We identify five apps Nigerians are likely to use every day.


There is no need to worry about calling or sending text messages to friends. You can simply call (video and voice) them or send a message to them on WhatsApp. Interestingly, you can even hold virtual meetings on WhatsApp. You only need the contact number of whoever you want to chat with.


Chrome owned by Google is one of the best apps out there used to access the world wide web. It is easy to use and very fast. More often than not, if you want to visit a particular website, you are likely to use Chrome.


Besides being curious, you may want to get updates about the activities of your friends and significant others, Facebook is the page Nigerians visit. At the same time, you can share your posts. It is this same Facebook that has led some Nigerian women to become detectives by trolling their partners.


This app is for Nigerians who read news stories, reports and articles online and want to save them for later because they don’t have time to look at them at the moment. Pocket helps you save all the stories you want to read.

This app is mostly used by Nigerians who want to know what is trending and also want to read about the latest news. In fact, twitter has given some Nigerians the title of social media influencers because they are very active on twitter and their engagement is on the high side.
