The question of the year – so far, anyway – is: Why did I wait so long to get an iPhone? Granted – there are lots of people who prolly don’t like Apple products altogether; however, I’m not one of those individuals … I’m pretty much a tech geek who wants anything that can let me do what I want to do – when I want to do it and where I want to do it. Thus, the purchase of the iPhone 3G [S]. How technical was this opening paragraph? 🙂
Needless to say … I’ve pretty much wasted the entire weekend doing nothing but playing with my iPhone … adding countless apps and just putting this phone through the test. It passes with flying colours. 😛 Okay … so, perhaps yer now asking: What are the apps you like the most that you’ve downloaded (maybe yer not asking, but you don’t really have a choice at this point – do you? 😉 ) … I’ve searched through hundreds of apps and actually downloaded 44 … most of them free, but a few I’ve paid for — none over $2 mind you!
My top 5 are …
The Sleep Cycle alarm clock is a bio-alarm clock that analyzes your sleep patterns and wakes you when you are in the lightest sleep phase. Waking up in the lightest sleep phase feels like waking without an alarm clock – it is a natural way to wake up where you feel rested and relaxed. You can also post your Sleep Cycle Graphs on Twitter or Facebook … so many people are into the ‘bio-alarm clock movement’ lately … you can buy similar gadgets, but why buy it when you can get it free on your iPhone (at least I didn’t pay for it — it might cost something now!).
Yes, I Twitter and tweet-tweet … this is the BEST app for Twitter for yer iPhone. Seriously. It’s the best way to tweet … I haven’t completely abandoned logging into Twitter on my computer @ home … if you don’t use Twitter — try it … it can be addictive in the beginning, but it levels off. Plus, you can follow all kinds of great Twitters … sport, news and if you choose – celebrities!
Sushi lovers should not — CANNOT — live without Sushipedia!!! This gives detailed info and pictures of commonly created sushi. Of course, local sushi creations won’t be found on here, but the bulk of popular sushi can be found … it’s great for having at a sushi restaurant or bar …. you can show it (like I did last night!) and you’ll prolly get a big smile and a head nod. The sushi chef where I ate last night was fascinated with the app!
I love Siri! Type it or speak it … either way Siri will provide you with the information you want! It uses the GPS locator in the iPhone to get the information you want. I really like it … I downloaded three other apps similiar, but Siri does it faster, better and accurately! You can see Siri in action at www.siri.com … It’s a free a download for iPhones at this moment in time!
And of course, Bump! 🙂 This is the app featured in the latest iPhone commercial … your contact information and that of another can be transferred via a ‘bump’ of yer iPhones … it’s really, really cool! 🙂 It saves so much time in the entire … typing it all in and hoping you actually saved the info! It’s free for the iPhone!
As for the rest of my weekend … well, I’ve got to get some minor house cleaning done — it cannot wait any longer. I’m going to eventually create an iPhone Apps page here to go along with all the others at the top … that way, I can share all of the apps I have and why I have them … I’ve downloaded tons, but deleted lots as well! 🙂 Now – on with the housework!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend …
