I am in love with my iPhone! I have fun scrolling through the various apps to see what might be entertaining or useful for me. I thought I would share my current favorites with you, and I would love to hear about your favorites too!
WORDS WITH FRIENDS:
This is a super fun game where you can play with other iPhone users. I currently play with my husband and my good friend Andrea. It is like a scrabble game that you can play across the miles! There is a free version and also a paid version (I think it’s $1.99). You can play with users you know by searching their user name, or you can choose a random opponent. It is quite addictive! If you happen to play this, look me up – my user name is “speedyjen”
This is a really neat app. If you like to find good deals while shopping (and who doesn’t right?), this is a must have app. It is a universal bar code scanner. You just use the scanner on your iphone, scan the barcode of a product you are looking at in the store, and it will pull up the same product at nearby stores and list the prices. You just might find that must-have product cheaper somewhere else! This app costs .99
When my husband worked the graveyard shift, I remember listening to the scanner constantly. It was scary at times, but also very interesting. I was thrilled when I discovered that there is a scanner app for the iPhone! You can listen to live action across the U.S. There are quite a few cities listed, broken down by state. Check it out to see if cities near you are on the list – it is quite informative! This app costs $1.99
I like to know what is going on in the celebrity world, and the TMZ app has the latest news and information. I find myself checking in daily just to keep abreast of recent news in Hollywood. There are videos you can watch too, as well as a photo section. This app is free.
When I take pictures on my iPhone, sometimes I want to crop them and/or decorate them a bit. Photogene makes it super easy to do this. Simply load an existing picture, or snap a new one. You can crop, add frames, speech bubbles and more. I also like how you can find tune the colors, blur a photo, and add other special effects. App costs $1.99 but is so worth it to me.
All of the above apps can be found at the itunes store!
I am always on the lookout for fun and useful apps. What are your favorite apps?
