iPhone Apps

Man, I’m in a complete blogging funk. I haven’t updated any of my blogs in ages…I hope I get my blogging mojo back….because I have so much to share!

Anyways, I wanted to do an update on my favorite iPhone apps since people are always asking me about them (I do have an insane amount of apps on my iphone hehe)

Michaels, Jo-Ann – for all of you crafters this is a must have! they both provide quick and easy access to those 40-50% off coupons so I *always* have one with me! I’ve started sewing so this has been a great money saver for me. I hate not having to look for the coupons at the last minute and waste paper and ink printing them out. You just show your phone and they scan it straight from there. IT’S AWESOME.
LivingSocial – I think out of all of the group buying websites, I like LivingSocial the best. It makes buying so easy! Maybe too easy :P

Wunderlist – I’m kind of obsessed with lists and this is a really sweet “to-do” app. It also syncs up with your PC and just has the sleekest interface of any list app I’ve tried! I’m in love!
StillTasty – This is a website I blogged about awhile ago…and now they have an app! It’s one of the few that I’ve paid for and it’s worth every penny. Helps me keep track of what’s in my fridge!
GasBuddy – With gas prices always on the rise, this is a handy app to see which gas station around you has the cheapest price! I won’t go out of my way to save a few cents on a gallon but if one is cheaper in the same vicinity…why not?
Flashlight – I’m sure everybody already has this app but I didn’t dl it until a few months ago. It turns on your flash as a flashlight and is so much better than those white screen ones
INRIX traffic – I drive a 40 minute commute every day. And when I get stuck in traffic, I’m always wondering WHY. This little app tells you what kind of accidents or big events might be going on on your route. Probably only LA people would find this useful :)

Halftone – This app creates little comic strips out of your photos. It’s really fun!

Remote – Use this to control your appleTV. it’s way better than the appleTV remote because it actually has a keyboard. btw, we love our appleTV!

Scramble CE – I became obsessed with this scramble game on the Windows 7 phone while I was visiting my sister. It’s sort of like Boggle but you play with real live people. Although this game is not as good as the Windows 7 version, it’s pretty darn close!

Ok I think that’s all for now. What are your favorite apps?

Oh yeah and as for the blogging thing, it’s just crazy because you have so much to say but you just don’t seem like you get the time! what’s up with that, right? Lately, I’ve been using as a place to queue up posts for my blog. I’m almost kinda considering consolidating everything to one, but it’s tough.
