when i got my iphone (for valentine's day two years ago! so sweet, right?!),
i was completely overwhelmed. where in the world do you start with apps?
i just had the default ones on there for a while.
i've discovered most of my favorite apps through word of mouth.
so, in the spirit of sharing, here are some of my most used and beloved iphone apps:
instagram // this is by far my most used app! it's a photo taking, editing and sharing app. they have so many fun filters to apply to your photos. my favorite part of this app is that you 'follow' people and get a peek into the fun moments they capture everyday. you can follow me, i'm: eesimpson. check out this awesome list of instagram tips and shortcuts too.
picframe // i must admit that i haven't used this app nearly enough but it's so cool. it's an easy to use way to make collages out of your photos. i've seen people do really creative and cool photos with picframe. molly jenson (a really great musical artist) often does outfit posts like this:
gas buddy // i always use this app before i stop to fill up. it shows you where the cheapest gas is around you (or you can search by area too). i have saved tons of $$ using gas buddy. who doesn't love to save at least a few bucks at the pump?
menu planner // this app is insane. it helps you plan your meals, keep track of what you have in your pantry, make grocery lists, even has a place to enter prices of items so you can estimate the cost of your groceries as well. you enter recipes and it saves them in this super easy to navigate database. then to plan your meals, just plug in your favorite recipes and you're ready to go. highly recommend this one!
feeddler rss // this is my favorite way to read the blogs i follow on the go. it syncs with my google reader to keep track of the many wonderful blogs i read. (it even remembers the 'starred' posts i selected so i can refer back to my favorite reads.)
pandora // i'm sure most of you know about pandora (free online radio where you 'create' your own stations based on your favorite artists or genres). this app is a must have for music while you're working out, traveling, or just sitting at the office. it's synced with your online pandora account, so your favorite music is just a click away on your iphone!
p.s. pretty much goes without saying that the standard
twitter & facebook are must have apps as well.
would you pretty please leave me a comment and share some of your favorite iphone apps too?
