    "This app is great. It offers so many shows to watch for one low price. I can download this app onto my phone, tablets, xbox, and computer. It allows me so much versatility in where I can watch tv. It is much cheaper than cable, and no problems whatsoever with streaming ability. This is one app I can highly recommend. Well worth the monthly fee."

    "Spotify offers a wide selection of great music on a very user friendly app. I love all the curated playlists that are available and the fact that music can be downloaded and listened to offline (with a subscription). I don't like filling up my phone with my full music library, so Spotify is a great solution!"

    "I've been using Pocket for many years now. It is one of the apps that has stood the test of time for me simply because it is effective in what it does. You stumble upon something interesting to read online? Is it an article worth your attention? With Pocket you can save the whole page for offline use and do it with ease. It can be used as an entertainment tool or something more serious - an intellectual app. "
