Since switching over to my shiny new iPhone 6, I did a major reassessment of my app collection, and got rid of the ones I really don’t need or use. Today I want to share with you some of my favorite ones that made the cut.
A Beautiful Mess: ABM (how it appears in the App Store) is a great app for editing pictures. It allows you to add doodles, phrases, borders, or your own texts, and lets you personalize the font and colors. This is by far one of my favorite apps.
Authentic Weather: I usually use The Weather Channel app for all my weather needs but after getting stuck in the rain after it lied to me several times (literally, it said sunny skies while I stood under a huge rain cloud), I decided to look for a backup weather app. Authentic Weather not only gives me the forecast, it also does it with a certain style and makes me laugh. Needless to say, David, who is not a fan of my potty mouth is also not a fan of this app. I on the other hand feel like this app is my long-lost soul mate. The only drawback is it had no doppler radar, so I am still forced to use the lying TWC app for my radar needs.
Just Unfollow: At first I was really on the fence about getting the app. I’m generally belong to the school of thought that when it comes to things like friends talking behind your back (this doesn’t really happen now that I am an adult) and people unfollowing me, I would rather not know. Ignorance is bliss. But then I began to think that if someone unfollowed me, I don’t want them taking up space on my feeds, so I took the plunge and downloaded it. I have to say, seeing people who unfollow me doesn’t hurt my feelings like I thought it would. Not everyone is going to like me, and that is ok. Besides, it’s Twitter and Instagram. It’s not the end of the world. I do find this app useful though so that I don’t waste time on people who don’t waste time on me. Fair is fair. It is even more important because it lets me see who is following me, but that I am not following back, so I can easily find those people and start following them.
Starbucks: This one should not need any explanation. I can reload my card from my phone and check to see how many stars until a free drink. The end.
FitBit: I am addicted to checking this app. It allows me to see my daily steps in real-time, and every time I walk any sort of real distance, I feel the urge to see how many steps I got. Plus it lets me see how I compare to my other FitBit friends in terms of steps and cheer or taunt them. I usually taunt them.
Listastic: This app is the most helpful one I have for blogging. I generally use my Erin Condren Planner to write down blog post ideas and my To Do lists, but sometimes my planner isn’t always handy, while my phone is almost always within reach (sad I know). I can just open up this app, write down the idea that just popped into my head, usually in the middle of the night, and add it to my ever growing list in my planner when I have time. It also syncs with all my apple devices.
I Heart Radio: When I moved here from LA I was really sad that I would have to give up my morning radio show. I listened to it religiously when I lived in LA, and was ecstatic to find it on I Heart Radio. Now I can listen to it on my way to work, as if I never even moved. Plus there are tons of other great stations you can listen to on I Heart Radio. It is very similar to Pandora in that way, but with the added bonus of live radio stations from all over the country.
WordPress: This one should be obvious too. While I don’t think I could write an entire post from my phone, this app lets me control when posts get published, delete posts, or make edits if need be, and also check my stats to see if a post was a hit or a total flop.
