It dawned on me, while writing my last post, that I should make a list of my favorite apps that I use on my iPad and iPhone.
The only things that I really do on these devices, other than blog, is surf the Internet, Facebook, Pinterest, read a book, and take pictures.
I don’t play games, but I do have a few apps that keep me occupied when I find myself having to wait somewhere.
(By the way, I don’t use the Facebook or Pinterest apps. I find it much easier to add an icon linking me right to those sites.)
So, with that said, here is a list of my favorite apps:
I keep these apps on both of my devices, the iPad and iPhone.
🔹Wordpress – Free
This is the app that lets me manage my blog from my portable devices.
I do all of my blogging from this app.
🔹 PhotoPad – Free
This photo editing app lets me resize and crop my photos. It also lets me
adjust light and color. This is the app that I use to do all of my basic
🔹 PS Express – Free
This is another photo editing app that I use to crop, straighten, rotate or flip
my photos. This app also lets me add some special effects and borders.

this app to make those silly face swap photos.
🔹 PhotoMakr – Free
I use this app to watermark my photos before I post them online.
🔹 ScribeItLite -Free
When I want to add text to my photos, I use this app. It gives me a wide range
of fonts, colors and sizes to choose from.
🔹 Diptic – Free
This app lets me combine multiple photos into one image. This is the app that I
use to create a before and after picture.
🔹 The Weather Channel – Free
I can check the forecast hourly, daily or even get a 10 day forecast.
This app also gives me alerts for severe weather conditions.
🔹 Flixster – Free
When I want to know what movies are playing, get show times, or buy tickets
from theaters that sell tickets online, this is the app I use. I can
watch trailers, get the top box office hits, hot upcoming movies, and
new DVD releases.
🔹 Skype – Free
I use this app to video chat with family members that don’t have
the ability to FaceTime.
🔹Kindle – Free
I buy Ebooks for Kindle on Amazon and read them on my iPhone
or iPad with this app.
🔹Holy Bible – Free
This is the app that I use when I need to access the Bible and I am not
connected to the Internet.
🔹Southwest – Free
With this app, I can check in for my flight, check my flight status, get
alerts about special deals, view flight schedules, book my air reservations,
book car rentals, and log onto my Rapid Rewards account.
🔹 AirportParking – Free
This app lets me find discount parking, compare prices, reserve a parking
space and get directions to their location.
🔹Solitaire – Free
I use this app to keep me entertained while I am waiting somewhere.
🔹ArcadeBowl – Free
This is a skee ball game and another app to help keep me entertained
when I am waiting for appointments, etc.
Along with the above apps, I also have these on my iPhone:
🔹Camera + – $0.99
This app has several useful features that improve my photos. I can use the
timer for self portraits and Burst to take rapid streams of shots. I can
also use this app to edit my photos.
🔹Last but definitely not the least are the
JoAnn, Michaels and Hobby Lobby apps .
For any crafter, these are “must have” apps. You can pull up coupons right from your device to use at the check out counter.
So, what is your favorite app?
