Subject: RE: Tech: (And BS) Why app rather than website?
I'm assuming you're discussing apps on phones or tablets? I use some apps on my phone and Amazon Fire tablet (New York Times and Washington Post, for example). I hate all of the permissions Facebook wants with their app, so I use the browser for that one. Twitter, Instagram, they're all apps.

Mrrzy, I mentioned a event at my post office in a Mudcat thread - the building has been hit twice in two months by drivers jumping the curb. Never before in 20 years. I saw the brick mason examining the second boarded up spot and asked if he had a card. The next day I started seeing ads for finding local brick masons in Instagram and such - because the computer BROWSER I'm using tells everything, it isn't just apps. The browser is Chrome, or if I'm using another browser I'm still likely logged into Gmail on it so it still knows everything.

Make life easier, download the app. (Read the reviews first, of course, and make sure it's the authentic version.)
