Recently it seems that EVERYONE around me that didn’t previously have an Iphone is now getting one.  I’m frequently asked what my favorite apps are so I figured I’d share it here too!  Enjoy!

AroundMe – This is a total lifesaver.  Whether on foot or in the car, you can find locations or business of any type around your current location and get directions.

PocketMoney – I get paid monthly and like to budget out my month and keep track of any transactions that aren’t instantly cleared on line with the bank.  I use this app as an online check register and budget planner.

Shazam– With the touch of a button this app will listen to a song that is playing and tell you what it is!

Pandora – Internet radio.  You can set likes and dislikes for songs and Pandora attempts to customize the playlist to what you enjoy listening to.

CardStar – Takes a picture/scans your rewards bar codes and stores them in the phone so that you don’t have to lug around those tags on your keys or other cards in your wallet.

OpenTable – We love to eat out and can spontaneously book reservations with this app.

aNote – My awesome friend Christine turned me onto this.  I tried the “lite” version then quickly bought the full version.  Worth every penny.  I can keep a to do list, shopping list, notes, birthdays/anniversaries and any other type of list my Type A heart desires in this one little app.  LOVE.



Dragon Dictation – Using voice recognition, you can dictate a message and very simply email it off.

SitOrSquat – Find a bathroom!

LinkedIn – Professional networking mobile app.

SnapTell – take a picture of a book cover and it will find it and let you order on the spot!

Pinterest – Mobile app version of website.

GoodReads – Mobile app version of the website.

Flixster – Easily find a movie playing near you and buy tickets!

Flashlight – Turns your phone into a very bright flashlight using your flash.

On September 25th I will be participating in The Walk to End Alzheimer’s.  This is a shameless plug to ask for donations.  No amount is too small.  Please help me raise funds in the hopes that someday a cure can be found.
