Favorite iPhone Apps5:00 AM
I'm don't consider myself a techie kind of girl but I do love my gadgets. I get it from my dad who's ALWAYS been a gadget guy. He has every gadget imaginable and he's always been like that, I still remember his Zack Morris cell phone and he got it way before Zack Morris! Anyway, I know I post a lot about my iPhone so thought I'd share some of my favorite apps for those of you just as obsessed with the iPhone! I know that most everyone knows about the good ol' apps that everyone must have (Pandora, Yelp, Groupon, etc...) so wanted to share some that I think are a little less talked about but fantastic in my opinion.
Dropbox - This is basically a file sharing service. My husband and I used this long before the iPhone to share documents but now that it's on my iPhone it's awesome to have any important documents on hand when I need them. All you need is a dropbox account and whatever files you put in there can be automatically shared with whomever you give permission to your dropbox folders and the same if you have more than one computer or obviously, on the iPhone as well.
Cross Process - My favorite phone editing app. It always makes the pictures much more interesting looking and I like that it adds a border around the pictures.
*I know that the Hipstamatic is a popular camera app and I do own it but I don't love it. I hate that you can't choose an existing picture from your album and you have to take the picture with the app. It can take a bit for the app to open and then by the time you do you may have already missed your moment. Plus I'm crazy about composing/styling my photos so I often take 3-4 pictures of the same thing at different angles/compositions but with the hipstamatic it takes much longer to do that. I'm just not a huge fan of the "lenses" that are used in the app.
And of course I love "dressing up" my iPhone with different cases. Here are some of my favorites...
Rebecca Minkoff Boxed Up Stevie IPhone Case - on sale for $31.99 now and use ebates to get 6% cashback at ebags.com.
2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Silicone iPhone case - gotta love the hot pink color! You'll be able to spot your phone a mile away!
3. Hello Kitty iPhone Case - just too cute! (and get 3.5% cashback at Modcloth!)
4. LUXMO Full Diamond Case - On my last smart phone (before I transitioned to the iPhone) I fully decked it out in rhinestones. I glued on every single little rhinestone and it was painstaking but it was PRETTY!! I don't have the time or patience these days to do that so this case would be the perfect remedy for that. And really for $8.99, I could get multiple colors and change them out weekly!
For those of you who are iPhone lovers as well please do share your favorite apps! I love finding great ones but I hate browsing the app store so am always looking for recommendations.
