UPDATE: The question I have... which queue do I put twitter? fast or medium? Clearly there is nothing in any tweet that is going to change my day's priorities but it could definitely derail it.
Looking at the number of apps that are running on my iPhone I realize that there's a problem. It's not that there are too many applications or that I don't use them regularly. I simply came to the realization that I needed a priority queue.
My iPhone was to be used for communications that needed to be real time or near instantaneous. This would be text messages phone calls emails.
Since my iPad mini is slightly bulkier than my iPhone and rarely take them with me everywhere I go. It made more sense that this be my medium queue. Apps like Facebook, LinkedIn, Google plus, and many others.
Finally my slow queue. This would be my personal laptop or my employers laptop. On my laptop I will install many of the applications that have native apps. For the rest I simply have bookmarks on my browser.
I decided on the prioritization of my cues based on The friction of the application and the sludge that it adds to my day.
