Application addiction

This post is bought to you by my head cold and inability to take any photos. Brendan and I are both sick which sucks as there is no one to look after us, we just keep looking at each other and feeling sorry for ourselves. I just spent the last 18 hours sleeping and am starting to feel a little better.
I have really only just started using applications on my phone, I know I am a little bit behind, but these are the ones I am digging at the moment (does anyone say digging? It must be my current state of delirium).

Instagram  - I love photos, and how simple this application makes it to share them. I am still getting use to remembering to post photos on here but I love checking other peoples photos in the mornings. I think it can give you inspiration for what you want to do with your day as well.

My fitness pal - this is a great little tool that calculates how may calories you should be eating a day based on your weight, height, how much you exercise and how much you want to lose. It then has a really extensive diary that allows you to keep track of what you eat. Its really easy to use and best of all free.

Cut expenses lite (aka reminder of how broke I am) - if you are trying to budget or work out where all your money has gone by the end of the week this is the perfect little application. Its a great way to figure out where your wasting money or where you can make cuts by recording every thing you spend over a period of time.

Flixster - Brendan and I can never agree on a movie when we get to the video store. We can literally stand and look at the movies for 20 minutes with out making a decision. This is a great tool to have to look up movies to see if we will like them or find out what is good.

Pocketbooth and Shakeitphoto - I always try and have my camera with me to take photos but you cant deny the convenience of taking photos on your i-phone especially when there are so many fun apps. These are my current favourites that I have recently downloaded but I also love good old Intstagram as well.

Do you have applications that you love? I am definitely up for finding some new ones to try out. For now though I think I am going to curl up and watch some Real Housewives, illness is an excuse to watch bad tv right?


  1. Cool post!


  2. my apps are mainly photographic ones but I do have a few games and all the really dorky ones like p tracker, iBooks & Nike+ GPS. My absolute favourite is 8mm - not free though :(

  3. I got my partner to jailbreak my iPhone for me, so I have a lot of different apps :) My favourites are all the different camera ones. I like:
    -Hipstamatic (I bought this one because I like it so much, it's nice to have something a bit different from Instagram sometimes~)
    -Picture Show
    -Swanko Lab
    -Plastic Bullet (I think this one is free too!)

    I also love Labelbox, which lets you put cute labels on photos (it's free as well!). Other boring ones I use a lot are Echofon, the eBay app, a period/fertility tracker app (since I'm starting to do fertility charting), and funny little time wasters like Plants vs. Zombies and Bookworm.

  4. I love instagram! :) the one thing I love about iphones are the fun apps, but I can't seem to get use to the layout of other things on the phone! I haven't tried Pocketbooth/shakeitphoto will dl that & try it! :D

  5. Ooh, I'm an Instagram addict. I also love the Cross Process App, it's another of my favourites.

  6. I don't really use apps... I'm a bit of a technophobe ha ha :) hope you feel better soon :)

    Love, Vanilla


  7. thanks for commenting on my blog :)


  8. nice tips, I love this post! haha sometimes when I look at my visa I'm like whoa I spent that much this month.. I totally need to record my expenses week to week!

  9. The expenses app sounds like something I should check out! Hope you feel better soon!

  10. Thanks for sharing, I will have to check these out!!

  11. I loved hearing about which applications you're loving and what everyone loves! I'm really into My Fitness Pal, Words with Friends (!!!), and have recently discovered a Napa Wineries application that I'm obsessed with!

  12. I love Instagram, it's so cool :)

  13. This just confirms that I need an iPhone!

  14. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be
    on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while
    people consider worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined
    out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
