As for public transport apps, those are a pet peeve of mine. In Germany we do not have a nationwide OV chipkaart as in NL, not even state wide systems, just regional ones. The two ticket apps I use, HandyTicket and DB Navigator, cover most of the regions I want. On top of that I use an app called Öffi (Android, free) which tells me about the stops near me, about the buses/trams/etc. there, and their schedule (realtime if possible). Works for seventy-something regions in 17 countries.

When I need to buy a parking ticket, I can (in this city and many others) use an app called PayByPhone. If I want to rent a bicycle, I have two bikesharing apps (for two partly competing systems). And of course there is e-mail, direct messaging (I use Threema, selected contacts only), news apps ...

And yet, if I want to make a supposedly simple change in the preferences, that can be a challenge. What a dumb phone. ;)

Unidentified items / tiny Seal of Solomon coin

This weighs a mere 0.63g and diameter varies from 7.2mm to 8.4mm, so average is 7.8mm.

I looked through a lot of Moroccan coins, the natural suspects, and did not find it. Not at all confident of the reverse alignment; depends whether one interprets it as a seated figure, a sigma, an M, or what. I saw some images that made me wonder if it could be Mameluke.

The thingy on top looks like it used to be a camera lens. It's a bit of a miracle if that contraption still does something. The battery shouldn't be visible from the outside, so it may be leaking. Batteries leak burning acid. When it reaches the outside of the metal, you'll feel a pretty bad ouchy if you are still carrying that little chemical bomb. My grandmother used to say: never mind your skin. It'll grow back, but I have to mend your clothes.
