share the wealth


So, I love my iPhone! I love it, a lot! But I know I could be using it for so much more than phone calls, texts, Facebook and Instagram, ha ha. Although, I must admit that my very favorite thing about the phone is the camera (could you have imagined saying that when we were young? That my favorite part about my phone is the camera?? Crazy!) I can't ever take enough photos of Mia, and Mia can't get enough of looking at herself :) Her favorite thing is to look at pictures of herself, and even better? Watch videos of herself! But back to the point, I want to share my favorite apps (that aren't very original) and in return I'm hoping that you'll set me straight and tell me what apps I've been missing out on. I'm all ears for any kind of app! Share the wealth, friends!

Camera+ I have found that I don't really care to take pictures in this app... mainly because I don't know how to use it to the best of its ability. But I love the editing options this app offers, especially since I'm clueless! For an editing dumb-dumb like me, this app is just what I need! (This one costs $1.99 I think. Worth the money!)
Laugh & Learn Shapes & Colors I don't let Mia play games on my phone very often (ie: a couple minutes once a week, if that) because I don't want her to get addicted. I realize how crazy that sounds, but she already knows how to swipe through the pictures so I have no doubt that she could become hooked to these games before I know it! But this is the game I let her play. She laughs and laughs and is totally entertained!
Viber This app is awesome! It allows you to text or call FOR FREE across the world! I believe you just need access to wi-fi if you use this outside of the country.
F2D Freebies 2 Deals is my favorite site to follow for sales and free promos. So of course I needed the app!
RunKeeper This is the app I use when I go running and it works for me. But I'm totally open to trying other apps out! So what do you use while running?
Pandora You guys, don't ask me how, but I just discovered Pandora only a couple months ago. I know, CRAZY! So you can imagine how much I'm loving this app! I'm just counting down the days until I can start blasting the Christmas music station :)
These apps may have a different name for the HTC phones. These are from my iPhone.

So, as I said before, I definitely need to be introduced to new apps! What will make my photos better? What's are your favorite filter apps (for instagram, of course)? Are there any coupon or shopping apps I need? What apps will Mia love when I let her play? Seriously, what am I missing out on?

You can't live without pic tap go. I really can't. It's the only app I use to edit. Total game changer ;)

I also can't live without candy crush, kindle, and peek a boo barn, forest, fridge, presents, and wild (those lex still loves)!

Love the picture! Can't believe you just found out about Pandora!!

I need to start finding some good kid apps once Terrin wants to do more with the phone than just eat it! I can't really recommend anything-the only extra app I have is Recipe Book. Its my recipe book that I add all the tried and true recipes. It syncs between my phone and iPad so if I'm at the store and decide that something would be good, I have the recipe there on my phone to get the ingredients. You can also choose different dishes you want to make and it will generate a shopping list for you! Pretty cool!

I like Camera+, but would love to find out if there are other good photo apps. (:

Holly Denny said...

Oh my goodness...pictapgo is my absolute, hands down favorite! I also love A Beautiful Mess for adding some fun text/graphics to pics!

You need to get Mia her own ipod. One of my friends daughters carries her own purse (she's only 13 months) with an ipod with music to keep her entertained.

Mya loves looking at pictures and videos of herself too :)I have a free app on my phone for mya called jukebox that plays toddler songs for her. She loves it!

I love Afterlight and BeautifulMess for camera things!

Diptic & Beautiful Mess for picture apps.
Password Keeper is one that I use daily. It allows you to back up to iCloud and you have to enter a password each time you open it.
Have you heard of spotify? Way better than Pandora!

I used to have an iphone but now I have the Samsung Note and I heart it because of the big screen!! PicArt is all you need for pic apps. Not a fan of Abeautifulmess....

I'm a bit useless when it comes to apps but one that is brilliant is the ebay sniper app, you just set your maximum price for an item and it bids for you, up to the maximum price, 3 seconds before the end of the auction. That's how I got Caleb's new stroller (which had never been used before!). I love that your iphone case matches Mia's dress, by the way!

slow clap for me because I don't use any of these apps.

Amanda Wissmann said...

Oh my gracious! I am just getting around to catching up on blogs since...well, since a while back now and MIA IS BEAUTIFUL!!! she's SO BIG since the last time I was on your blog! *sigh* our babies are getting too big too fast!

I looooooove Viber! Its how I stay in touch with my family and friends from the states!

I'll have to look up the Laugh & Learn! always looking for something to keep Judah busy if I need to.

You should look up "Petting Zoo" for Mia. It's great and Judah loves it! Lots of fun sounds and very interactive!

I think I'm the only one without an iphone!!! lol, oh well. Love Mia's pink bow, she is too cute!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I love how the phone matches her outfit... stylin'! :P

my favorites are google maps app, ereader, bank app for depositing checks, bloglovin app, daily devotional (like bible verses, etc.)

vsco cam app for editing pictures is amazing, and it's free! I've heard great things about the mextures app, but haven't used it myself.

a beautiful mess app is great for adding words/cute stripes/chevron/etc to your pictures!

there's an app for blogger too! i only use it when i want to add pictures from my phone to a post and am too lazy to upload it to the computer (or i'm at work and can't).

I love pictapgo for photo editing. I'm also addicted to checking the weather channel app. Why? I don't know. Since our weather is pretty much always the same here. Ha! Yelp is awesome for finding restaurants, parks, etc.

We have a bunch of fisher Price Apps for Zoe , plus all the talking animals. I think the bird one is called Talking Larry , and It's the best app I've downloaded. She can be screaming and the second I open that for her she's quiet. It's magic. We just do all the free educational games for Zoe.
For me It's pretty much just my games on FB that I can play on my ipad too. but I have a shopping list app that' i'll have to get the name for , that's been a life saver.

I'm so glad you posted this question because I'm learning a lot more about apps too. Right now my son just loves playing Angry Birds and Sonic (he's five). I do like the app "Map my Walk" or "May My Run"--it's great if you want to record your mileage/distance. Thanks for this post!

So i'm also a coupon sale queen.. Download Shopular. I love it for all my stores, it gives you all the sales, coupons deals going on and the weekly ads. Then when you're near the store (because your gps is turned on) it will alert you the deal at that store. And i second Spotify :) Love it more then Pandora!

It's crazy how useful iPhones can be for mommies. My SIL has some app to track Maddie's feedings. Crazy! You should get a Lifeproof case. I have one, and there is no way in heck I would go without one if I had a baby playin' with my phone!
