There's an app for that ...


appify
[ap-uh-fahy]
v.t., to take an activity, process, or iterative routine that would normally be done conventionally by a separate device, a computer or another human being and make a smartphone and/or tablet-based application to do it easier ... ideally.

Now, it would be dishonest for me to claim credit for this 21st-century nugget of neoligistic nirvana ...

That should go to the mercurial Brian R. Cunningham, of Washington DC, a friend, a JMU Duke, a Woodbridge Senior High School graduate, an excellent golfer, father and husband and a cagey Texas Hold 'Em player.

Like the limitless uses of the now-ubiquitous 'application software,' there are as many colloquial analogs of the digital phrase appify.

There's no use for mom's index cards of holiday cookie recipes anymore. Let's appify it.

I enjoy looking at the Savannah-Chatham Sheriff's Department 72 Hour booking photos, but it'd be cool if they could appify it.

Just app it ... App it up ... I'm apped out
I'd app that app ... You're a jackapp

Wait, that's inapppropiate :)
