i found out recently that there were some iphone sites that featured my first blog on my iphone, entitled, “my new toy” so i wanted to do a follow up from that post since my app game has significantly increased.

 

 

so here’s a review of some of my most recently added (and loved) iphone apps:

 

Jott

Jott

Jott is a note taking app that transcribes voice notes into written notes, allows you to send SMS texts or emails to people via your voice, and you can even set reminders to be emailed or text to you. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Say Who

Say Who

 

Say Who is a voice dialer that is absurdly accurate with it’s dialing. one of the main things that i missed about my crackberry was the ability to dial people via voice… especially when i was driving. i would never want to be the awful driver who is causing traffic or accidents because of my inevitable search for someone to talk to as i drive. 

 

 

 

 

Tranquil Alarm

Tranquil Alarm

Tranquil Alarm offers all those who normally use their cell phones as alarms a nicer option to that of the normal, scare-you-awake alarm sounds out there. not only is there an alarm to wake you up, but there is also a function that allows you to fall asleep to the sounds of a tropical rain forest or thunderstorms or whatever your fancy! this is great for all you insomniacs like myself!

 

 

 

Palringo

Palringo

Palringo allows those (like me) who IM on more then one messenger service the ability to use all these different services on one platform. similar to trillian or meebo, palringo allows you to be signed in to yahoo, msn, aim, google talk and more all at the same time. coolest thing is their most recent update made it so it runs in the background for a bit of time before signing you out.

 

 

 

 

 

Petals (for women only)

Petals (for women only)

Petals offers a discrete, yet efficient, way for women to track when aunt flow gets to stomping… i recently had an appointment for lady town and the doctor was quite impressed when i whipped out my trusty iphone and was able to tell him all my recent cycles… this is also a great tool to forecast when your next period will be here and possibly when you ovulate. 

 

 

 

 

Moods

Moods

Moods is one of my most favorite apps because i’m not the greatest at emoting or saying how i feel. i love this app because it has vibrant smileys that have feelings/emotions under them to help you sort out your own. best of all, it gives you a place to justify y you feel a certain way. even better is that it tracks your moods daily and monthly so you can look back and see just how you’ve been feeling. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

hiCard

hiCard

hiCard is probably the cutest app out there. this nifty little program allows you to send trendy and stylish e-cards. the cards range from “sorry” to “happy birthday” and everything in between. i’ve sent a couple of these out and people have always been quite appreciative of receiving them. you can input your own message and everything! only drawback is that you have be connected via wiFi in order for it to go through.

 

 

naturally i have more apps then this but these are some of my most used and favorites… i hope you guys enjoy these tidbits though!

please share some of your favorite apps with us!

in my circle of friends (at work anyway) i’m late in getting this but i have recently purchased an iPhone and it is THE best $200 investment that i’ve made. 

 

the best investment ever

the best investment ever

 

 

so last friday, after much thought and being frustrated about losing information on my blackberry pearl AGAIN, i was ready to make my purchase. i had already made the decision that i was going to purchase it and even began to save money for it. my good friend TBS had already sent me an email about setting up my service with at&t before going in to the store to make my purchase. 

by the time that i was ready to take the plunge, everything was all set-up! i walked into the apple store (which has the best customer service ever) and gave them my name, credit card, and was pretty much set to go! what made it even better is Danny (my Apple Genius) browsed different apps with me and helped me set them up initially. 

so now for my review about my love the iPhone…

the great:

  • the apps are ridiculous! i now have a personal assistant on my iphone that keeps track of all my bank accounts and utility accounts! 
  • i LOVE the touch screen… it makes navigating so easy
  • i have access to literally everything at my fingertips
  • i can listen to my music and load my songs without it taking up too much memory
  • and can i say the apps AGAIN!!!
  • the service is better then t-mobile… it’s true, you do get more bars in more places!
the “needs improvement”:
  • there is no picture messaging so you always have to email
  • at&t plans kinda suck
  • the text messaging takes some getting used too
but overall, like i said, this is the best purchase i’ve made in a while… it was so worth sacrificing my expensive makeup and shoes to save for it!!!
btw, here are some of the great apps that i have:
  • pandora (streaming songs to your phone doesn’t get any better!!)
  • facebook (of course)
  • wordpress (naturally… but it doesn’t seem to work right)
  • urbanspoon (find any type of food you want within any area by shaking the iphone)
  • aim (gotta keep in touch with the peeps!)
  • BOA (banking on the go)
  • twitterific (gotta keep people updated!)
  • shazam (don’t know the name of a song playing? let your phone listen to it and it’ll give you the information!)
  • audi a4 (omg! racing game where your phone is the steering wheel!)
  • lockbox (keep all your personal stuff locked up)
  • personal assistant (cuz i’m that important…LOL)
  • sugar (can’t think of sweet messages on your own? this will help!)
i don’t think that i can emphasize enough how great the iphone is… i quote my good friend TBS when i say, “i don’t know how i lived without it!”
