M: It is, isn't it? But I think people enjoy all this technology these days. And even teachers like if you have some business, you might want to develop your own app, or even some podcasters. Podcasters.
R: Use your words.
M: Even podcasters, they develop their own apps, because it's just convenient.
R: I think it's crazy.
M: No, but it's quite popular. But okay, let's think about Rory app.
R: Can we not?
M: If you want to make your own app, come on, you can call it like a Rory app, and you open it and you see what you ate for breakfast, when you got up today, you know. All your plans, for example, in this app, everything, all Rory's life in one app.
R: That's a very strange thing. Why would anyone want that? Like they could make up an app for their own lives? And there probably are lifestyle apps out there, now that think about it.
M: Oh, boy, dear listener, would you like to have a Rory's app? You know, you just go to Google Play Store, App Store and you type Rory app. And there you go, you can download all Rory's life.
R: The smallest app ever created.
M: Yeah, we used to talk about Rory's museum and yeah, now we can talk about an app. Anyway, language wise, can I say make an app, create an app, develop an app? What do I do with an app?
R: Well, you develop or you create an app, don't you? You know, build an app too, now that I think about it.
M: And you can say like, well, it's not my thing, really. I'm a little overburdened, just now. If you are a little overburdened, what is it?
R: It just means you have lots to do. And if you're overburdened, then certain things might have to take a backseat. And that just means they're of a lower priority.
M: Yeah. So it's not my thing. I'm a little overburdened right now. Or you can say, I'm ??? at the moment. I have a lot of things to do. So I think I'll have to take a backseat. So no, I'm not gonna make my own app. And also, you can say, I don't have a clue what I would make an app for. So an app for what?
R: Yeah, I don't, like it's so strange. Most apps are just about communicating things to people, aren't they? Or keeping track of things. But if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to send them to me on Instagram.
M: Yeah, we can develop our own app. Like IELTS Speaking for Success app, for example, where we'll have all our episodes, we have all our vocabulary, we have a chat, a chat to chat to people. So that would be nice. If the examiner asks you questions about the future. So what kinds of apps will we use in the future? You say, well, I am not a fortune teller. But make sure you use polite intonation.
R: Well, it's just a very quick one. It's just like, well, I'm not a fortune teller, though, I'd imagine... And then keep going. I would imagine.
