So I have an iPhone and I ‘m obsessed with it. In honor of the awesome new OS that came out and the new iPhone I decided it was time to share some apps. I’ve been obsessed and I have been for quite some time. I’ve also had my iPhone for over 2 years now. Little child of mine. So with having an iPhone comes some cool apps that you can get. I’m a big believer in free appage. If I have to pay for the app it has to be REALLY worth it. So I thought I would let you in on some of my favorite apps. 🙂 I’ll do another post this week for my favorite running related apps!
First off we have, “Days Until”
I love this app because like a fellow counter-downer, Aron, I love to see how many days until certain events! I keep track of a ton of different dates on there and it’s fun to see them tick down to nothing. 🙂 I count down to friends weddings, races, vacations. It makes the time go much faster!
Then we have my love, “Shazam”
This is pretty much the best app that I know of. If you hold it up to a song on the radio, it will tell you what song it is and who sings it and what CD it’s on. Rarely it won’t recognize the song, but most of the time it’s right on! I love doing this when I listen to a new song I don’t know and then I can download it once I get home and put it right on my ipod for running!
Then like most of the population with iPhones, I got sucked into “Words with Friends”.
I am pretty much the worst person ever at the game, but it’s pretty fun for the most part and it is something to do when I’m bored. I believe that most of the people I play on there cheat. Like my brother who somehow is beating me by over 300 points?
Another super fun app is “Emoji”
I love this one because once you add it on your phone you can send a bunch of stupid little pictures to other people! I don’t know why this is so hilarious to me, but it is. The best one is a little picture of poop with a smile! 🙂
Then, since I’m a sports fanatic, I love the “ESPN” app.
I love the text alerts it sends me regarding my Angels and I love staying up to date easily on many different sports, especially all this soccer! It’s easy to navigate. I use the app “Sports Tap” though for college sports.
You put the phone down with this program on and it tracks the time you went to bed and when you wake up by your movement. It also can wake you up in-between a 30 minute time frame to a ‘gentler noise’. It has your total time slept and also your average total time over the period when you are using the app. It’s AWESOME!
Since I’m a sucker for cute animals, I have the app, “Daily Puppy”
Which is basically what it’s titled. Each day there is a new picture of a puppy. 🙂 Sometimes they are super cute and sometimes they are meh.
Then my friend Tara alerted me to “Zooborns” as well.
This one is a picture ever so often, mostly daily, sometimes two a day and sometimes once every other day, of a new born animal at a zoos around the world. It’s pretty awesome to see so many different animals!
So there are some random apps I like. I’ll post some running apps that I’ve used and like soon!
Yesterday I got in 7.5 miles and it was HOT out. I haven’t been that warm in what seems like forever. It was a good run and though it was tough I’m glad I pushed through it. Tomorrow I’ve got 13 miles in the morning and I’ll be up bright and early not to miss any of the USA soccer game! 🙂 I’m really starting to feel good about running again and uploading my runs to runningahead.com is really helping me stay motivated! I have some more stuff to do around the house but it’s coming along so well! I can’t wait to show you guys pictures, my room is almost completely done.
