It would have otherwise been quite a negative viewpoint to look at our mobile phones as that CHIP of the future everyone was talking about in their claims that we’re all just going to be implanted one day and controlled electronically in some ways, but considering just how much freedom to personalise your smartphone you have, it’s far from that, isn’t it? If there are any doubts forming around the level of personalisation contained in each smartphone then you just have to think about all the trouble you have to go through to make a new phone you might have gotten “yours,” following your loss of your current one for whatever reason.
Two different people – in fact two best friends might have a matching set of mobile phones, but if there was no uniqueness in each device to speak of, we might as well all use each others’ phones communally.
So what is it that makes your particular phone so valuable? It definitely goes beyond the value of what you paid for it, after all, if you were to resell your phone a mere two minutes after you bought it from the shop, you wouldn’t get the same price you paid for it “when it was new,” would you?
There are so many elements which come together to determine the value of your mobile phone, a bunch of which could perhaps be some of the apps you use to make money. In all fairness though, unless it’s an application you might have created yourself, many of these so-called money-maker apps will earn you very little pocket change which you’d indicatively work very hard for by way of the amount of time you put into them. Ask Max Keiser of RT’s Keiser Report about what he refers to as the “Gig Economy” and you’ll get the full picture.
Often it’s the simplest apps which carry the most valuable information however, subsequently hosting the most value which can be attached to your phone. It could be the simplest notepad you use to keep the contact details of some business partners for example, or it could be a truly handy app such as Billbulter.
We can point to lots of apps and info that give your phone some measurable value in pounds and pennies, but it’s apps like Billbulter which make it priceless. Think about it – can you put a quantifiable amount of value on the time, effort and hassle you save when using just one app to compare AND manage bills, including water?
Regular payments can also be managed using the app, such as recurring payments of your broadband, TV, mobile and motor bills, this in addition to energy of course. This is also one of the very few if only instances when you wouldn’t get annoyed by the notifications you receive from your apps, because Billbulter sends you notifications to alert you to cheaper deals you can take advantage of to gain some big savings consistently.
Share the bill costs between friends in the easiest way possible with the split bill feature. Word has it that in the pipeline is the ability to manage home insurance and TV subscriptions such as Netflix, a feature earmarked to be part of the app by the end of 2018.
The app is available for download at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.billbutler&hl=en_GB for the Android platform, while Apple users can get it at https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/billbutler-control-save-pay/id1331541487?mt=8
