If you’re anything like me, you’re kinda obsessed with your iPhone. Yeah, like glued to your hand at all times obsessed. I use mine a lot for work and my blog, but there’s also some fun and useful little apps I thought I’d share with you today.
First here’s some screenshots of my iPhone homescreen. Yep, I organize everything into folders. I’m kinda a neat freak like that.
One of my favorite folders of course is “Blog”. Make sure you download the Michael’s & JoAnn’s apps for coupons (I always have trouble remembering to cut them out of the paper).
Also, if you haven’t used Sherwin Williams ColorSnap app yet… ohmigoodness, it’s awesome. Take a pic and it will give you paint colors to match. Or you can just get color palette ideas. Very cool stuff.
My favorite app under my Food & Cooking folder is Grocery IQ. Never forget anything from the store again! Just add items to your list: either start typing in a name and it will autofill for you, or you can scan a product’s barcode to add it to your list. You can also mark your Favorites for those items that you purchase most, or you click on the Coupons tab for some great deals.
I have a couple of favorite apps under the Health folder.
The first one is MyNetDiary (thanks to my neighbor for showing me this one!). I can keep track of my meals & calories, exercise weight, water consumption and more. I’ve tried a bunch of these diet apps, and this one is my favorite by far!
I also really love the MiCoach app from Adidas. You can track your daily runs through the phone’s GPS (or while walking/jogging/running on your treadmill if you’d like). You can even have a song playlist for this app while working out. Love that.
For my business, one of my favorite apps is TurboScan. Just take a pic with your iPhone of a document and it turns into a scan! And not some grainy, pixelated document… but an actual high resolution PDF. I’m super impressed with the quality thus far. You can even fax your scan if you download an app like JotNot Fax (99¢ per fax). Do I sound a little dorky for liking these apps?
OK, here’s tons of app I use under the Photography folder (Instagram of course), but some of my favorites are the off-the-wall stuff.
Take Oldify for example. I have no idea who first told me about this app, but it’s hilarious and creepy at the same time. No, I don’t normally look like this… ok, maybe a little in the morning. The photos also move around and blink. Yeah, like I said, creepy. Oh, and make sure you check out CamWow, too. Hilarious, kid-friendly app for distorting faces.
And of coures from my Home Screen I have the WordPress app (my website program). Here I can update all of my posts, check my stats, approve & reply to comments, and navigate any other thing I might need from my Dashboard. It’s a lifesaver at times!
Whelp, that’s it for my Favorite iPhone apps.
Also have to quickly mention Craigslist (for easy posting and searching), Pinterest (no explanation needed here), AroundMe (find restaurants, banks, movie theaters, hotels and more nearby), and Mint.com (keep your finances and budgets in order).
