While this generally goes unsaid, the internet has become a huge crutch — but more than that, we're pretty much blind without it. What do you do when you need to convert meters to feet? Hit a few buttons on your keyboard and bam, Google tells you all you need to know. But the thing is, you're not really gaining anything from having a contextless answer spit at your eyeballs. The Converted can help where Google fails.
Everyone's busy. Now, whether it's for legitimate reasons or own anxious need to feel like we're busy at all times is a different story.

Look at the text message conversation between any two people in the 12 to late 20s age range and there's a pretty decent chance you'll get a deluge of brightly coloured cartoon icons that, just a few years ago, would have seemed entirely nonsensical.

While most educational apps are generally intended for children, let's be honest — anyone not in the field probably remembers next to nothing about how the human body works other than the fact that, you know, it does. Fortunately, The Human Body by Tinybop is just as fascinating for adults as it is for children, letting you explore every excreting, beating, and oozing crevice of human biology, all at your own pace.
If you're like most people, your work email account is an absolute disaster — most likely some unholy combination of short messages with friends, formal interactions with coworkers and higher ups, client emails and various other outside communications.
