List RulesVote up the apps that are dominating your screen time while you're social distancing.

When you're self-isolating your phone is your best friend and the apps on it are what keep you connected. The best apps during quarantine keep us in touch with our loved ones, keep our minds calm, bodies busy, and maybe even help us not succumb to the apathy of isolation. Whether it's using one video app for working from home and another for chatting with friends, or even optimistically seeing what the dating scene is like, there's an app for that. Vote up the mobile apps that you are turning to the most during the quarantine.

Maybe you are enjoying that contact-free delivery keeps the wine flowing, or that you can still have a movie night with friends even when you're far apart. Many popular meditation and exercise apps have introduced longer free trial periods so people can manage increased anxiety and the changes in schedules, meaning some folks are finding their center or doing pushups for the first time. From silly word games to serious world updates, the apps on our phones are keeping us together.

What is making your screen time daily average reach new peaks? Vote up the apps that are almost always open while you're isolated.
