VOX POP: What recent invention has changed your life and why?

There are so many things around us that we take for granted, but make our lives easier. So, in celebration of all things innovative, team members at Appco Australia were asked: “What recent invention has changed your life and why?” Looking at the responses, it seems there's a common mobile-related theme here.

Mario, Customer Service Representative:

“WhatsApp helps me to keep in touch with my friends in the UK as well new friends. It’s made previous pricey video and SMS services redundant.”

Kurtis, Customer Service Team Leader:

“I have become pretty reliant on Google Maps. Being new to Sydney, I am still learning my way around, but having this app really helps me when I’m in a pickle.”

Hannah, Quality Assurance Officer:

“FaceTime has changed my life. It is a great way to connect with my parents overseas and eases the pain of separation immeasurably.”

Gabriella, Quality Assurance and Compliance Officer:

“When I found out I was lactose intolerant, I had to say goodbye to ice cream. That was until I found out about an alternative: coconut milk ice cream.”

Jimi, Operations Manager:

Samsung Pay has saved me numerous times at the supermarket; I always seem to forget my wallet, but luckily I always have my smartphone.”

Naomi, Campaign Administrator:

Spotify allows me to focus more on my work, connect with friends through sharing songs and playlists and makes it super easy to discover new music through the personalised playlists.”
