I love my iPhone. I do...and I confess, I'm on it probably more than I should be. When I write out at a coffee shop with no WiFi, when I'm waiting to pick up Kiddo from school, while on the bus, you name it, I've got my phone out. I'm returning emails, I'm checking our calendar, I'm texting with my husband remember the yogurt and Brussels sprouts from the store. Yes, I love my iPhone.
It's funny as I am not a "gadget" person (at all!), but I'm finding more and more ways to use my phone to, well, make my life run a little better-smoother-faster in thanks to those nifty things called apps. I have game apps on there like Mittens, Subway Surfers and Plants vs. Zombies for Kiddo to play when the doctor is running 43 minutes late (another confession: I do love planting sunflowers and potato mines to blow up those zombies too), but there are a few other apps I'm digging that keep me sane (or at least a little less crazy).
Intuition+ -- This one little hub connects and stores everything in your life. Keep lists (To-Do, grocery and others), get little motivation prompts, and set reminders or alerts so you don't forget to pack a lunch for a field trip ever again. It's like your own personal assistant.
Instapaper -- How many times have you wanted to read something you ran across as you were surfing or on your buddy's Facebook update...but you just don't have the time right then? Save it on your phone via Instapaper and then you can read it anytime you have a few minutes, even without being at your computer or online. It's a portable, make-your-own magazine with only the articles you want to read!
Tipulator -- You are at the restaurant with your mommy buds for a much-needed night out, and the bill comes. Though you all help your kids with their math homework daily, no one wants to figure the tip or try to split the check up. Never fear: handy-dandy Tipulator does it for you!
Smart-ICE4family -- This is one app that you may not want to have, but it's so important to have there on your phone. Smart-ICE4family alerts emergency personnel to your medical issues if you can't, and allows you to have at your fingertips all of your family's medical info like history of procedures, allergies, medicines, and blood type (also handy for when you have to fill out all of those forms at the doctor's office). Password secured, it also has lists of symptoms and medicines.
Instagram -- You snapped a really cool picture of your kid's cello performance, and you want to share it...Instargam makes it easy to crop the shot, add a caption, and send it to both sets of grandparents, as well as post it to Facebook, all at once.
Share your best and favorite apps!
