My 10 Favorite iPhone Apps8
I’ve had my Verizon iPhone about two months now, and that’s long enough to have developed a few favorite applications. Here they are in no particular order.
Evernote. This thing is gold. I click on it and click on the voice record and start recording or type my ideas for new blogs, etc. It automatically syncs to the free Evernote software on my laptop. And it’s free.
Tweetbot. I read on another blog that this was the best Twitter app, so I tried it. I sucked it up and paid the $1.99 for it. I’ve not been disappointed. No problems and always updating. Plus it makes fun sounds.
Words With Friends, aka Scrabble. There’s no hurry to come up with a word on the spot with a game board. I can take up to several days before I make my next play. I still suck at it, but I am getting better.
Couch to 5k by Bluefin Technologies. I have a hard time calling this one of my favorites, but I use it a lot. I’m very thankful for it, ’cause when I’m out training, it dings and then tells me to walk, then dings and tells me to run. It also plays music, tracks me by GPS and keeps track of my pace times both walking and running and puts them all on a nice graph. I don’t have to think about anything except to keep breathing.
Yes. I love Angry Birds. I could sit and play for hours. I would if my battery would last longer. I’ve passed most of the levels on both this version and Rio. Now I’m just trying to kill the pigs faster.
SoundHound. This one is so cool. I tap the icon and hold it to music, and usually within 30 seconds it tells me the name of the song, who sings it and gives me the link to download it on iTunes. I can also sing into it, and it will tell me the right song.
Fruit Ninja. Fruit and bombs fly up in the air. You use your finger to slice the fruit and not the bombs. Simple yet so addicting. I play it every night before I go to sleep. What’s not therapeutic about slicing fruit?
YouVersion Bible App. Obviously, I’ve put this one in here to make myself look like a better Christian. Just kidding. And it’s probably the one that I use the most, at least in church. I’m not one to remember to walk out the door with my Bible, but I always remember my phone. The person who put the two together was a genius.
So what about you? Any favorite apps? What app would you create if you could?
