My favorites

Do you have a favorite app? Or 5? 10? I’m not really an apps girl… I’ve seen iPhones that have 100 or more apps, all categorized, and where 10 do the exact same thing and it boggles my mind. I can’t have that many on there, I start to feel overwhelmed and cluttered and if I see I haven’t touched it in awhile, I’ll take it off my phone, but there are those rare few that I have that I can’t live without.

I feel like you don’t know about these and I have to share the wealth. Get you in the know. Bring you into my little ‘best app’ circle, so you can nod your head and agree with me.

From the one that I’m loving most:

~ Viber
By far the most exciting app I have. Why? Because its free. (always a great thing) but more than that, it lets me talk to friends around the world for free. I text my friend in Germany all day long and never think twice about it. Friend in Peru? Same thing! We can call each other too, all through the app and have it be free. Such a beautiful thing. It works for everyone anywhere, US to US too, so you don’t need an international friend to get it…but it never hurts to have one. ;)

~ My Consultant
If you have your own business, this is a great app to use for tallying the customer’s totals. It let’s you add everything up with tax and shipping included which keeps you accurate. I use this all the time while at my parties.
~ Wells Fargo
one reason and one reason only… mobile depositing. best.thing.ever.

~ My Cycles
Definitely a ‘girly stuff’ app to have, but I love this app. It tracks everything, every month, so I can be prepared. I enter in my issues for that day, all the symptoms, it saves it and gives me an idea of what I’ll be expecting for next month. I’ve had this app for 2 years now and have found in incredibly accurate, and recommend it to all.

{there’s another app alongside it that I’ve covered but that I use daily. It’s great for women, whether after giving birth, or in general.. if you want to know, I’ll email you the name of it, but since the creator didn’t think of the best name for it, I don’t want it on my blog}

And then a lot of my photo apps. The ones I use the most are:
~ Diptic
a great collage app that gives you several different options and funky designs. It costs, but it’s worth the .99 cents.

~ Pic Stitch is the free collage app.

~ TimerCam is great for those selfies you don’t want people to know are selfies. Prop it up. Set the timer. And run to the other end of the room… oh, someone took my picture…

~ Whitagram is for those photos you don’t want to get crunched in the Instagram app. It’ll keep the dimension of your landscape photo allowing everything you took to be in the IG picture. This might be why you’re seeing a lot of shrunken IG photos these days.


The most recent app I’ve gotten (just last night actually) is the InstaCC app. I’m not quite sure I like it. It forces you to sign in via IG and will only pull your IG photos. Originally, I thought it would pull from my photo album, which I thought would be great to fill a picture for every day of the calendar that I took, however it will only post the ones you put on IG and it will only allow you to ‘save’ the calendar, by putting it on IG… something I didn’t want to do. I just wanted to save it in my camera roll, but since it wouldn’t let me, I took a screen shot of it instead.

Take that, InstaCC!

But the concept, I thought was pretty neat. They also have fun screen skins for the background. So it has potential, if you’re a heavy daily IG user…which you can see, I am not. (this was a heavier month for me).

So those are the most used (and favorite) apps I have currently.

What are apps you can’t live without or just plain love using? No listing the typical (ie. IG, FB, Twitter, Pinterest..), I want unique apps that you’ve found that are your hidden gems.

Happy May Day!!!

YAY VIBER! My favorite!

Several of these downloading right now! I always love to try new apps.

A few of my faves:

Skype: It's nice to be able to pull it up on my phone and see my family.

Netflix: Nice for when I'm feeding the little one or can't sleep!

Candy Crush Saga (addicting!)
Song Pop (it's like name that tune :)
Words with Friends (I play my parents :)

Someone at my work said he did mobile deposits from his smartphone and I thought he was kidding...until he showed me that it really works. Crazy how high-tech things are these days!

I don't think I have a favorite app, because really, I am just in denial how reliant I have become on my iPhone. A blessing and a curse, I tell you.

BTW - we use a lot of the same photography apps! And yes - free is good!
