I need an app to help me organize my folders on my phone and help me know which to delete (I'm an app hoarder who is certain they'll all come in handy) . I remember on PC having a program that broke down how often I used each app and how much space it took up. Stuff like that. Mass deleting the apps that aren't necessary and organizing the ones I want to keep are all things I'd like to be able to do - What's the best app for this?

I recently remembered how much I liked At the Drive-in, especially the album Relationship of Command.

What would you recommend that is similar? I'm fine with recommendations from any time period.

Help me experience the reading I missed out on as a child. [more inside]
So the qualities I adored about The Cranes are Flying (just watched it yesterday!) were the striking cinematography and the hopeful, humanist melodrama-- it felt like a romantic American melodrama in ways and yet had a sense of dark reality I more so associate with foreign art-house fare... and once again, incredible cinematography! I cannot for the life of me decide on what to watch tonight so I thought I'd throw it out to the Hive Mind to choose for me!

Where do you go for your geometric silver jewelry?
