I saw this on Matt Birchler's blog, and then saw the multitude of people posting about their default apps in their own blogs. I've never jumped on a trend like this before, so I figured this would be a fun first one to do 😅.

I guess you can say my choices are pretty vanilla; I've been through my phase of trying a specific app for everything, but nowadays I'm settling down on things that actually work.
