Less Fashion, More Advice

So.... if you follow me on Twitter or read my post yesterday, you would have already learned that I got an iPhone!! Finally, finally ♥

I got an iPhone, I got an iPhone
I've been sitting on a Kate Spade case since Christmas, which my amazing MIL got me ♥

I'd been using the old Android Eris for over 2 years now, and as my social media life expanded, so did my need for more functionality in a phone. I'd had my upgrade since November, but for some reason I drug my feet. "What if I hate the iPhone?" I kept asking myself. So much so that it took me 4 months to finally make the switch.

Luckily, I received an iPad to use at work, which gave me the chance to get comfortable with the whole Apple operating system thing. So I was finally ready. (And my old phone was just getting worse by the day.)

So I need advice. What are the best Apps? I've already downloaded Instagram. It was actually my first App to download, because I was sick of everyone using it without me! (PS - User name: amyrenepowell)

I've already had my fair share of Instagram fun... all of which is also going to my Tumblr

But I want to know about the other Apps that make the iPhone, the iPhone. What can you not live without?


  1. apparently I need the twitter, facebook, and draw something apps on my phone. I say apparently because i also got an iphone recently and had no idea i was going to get so addicted to it.

  2. Definitely need Facebook, Pandora Radio is great too. I am listening to it right now. There's also a cute picture one called Hubba Bubba. It's silly, but fun. Happy App hunting. There are so many out there. Seriously there's an App for everything.

  3. I don't have a smartphone; my indispensable work tool is my HP laptop. I've never had good luck with Pandora, though. It gave my last HP a couple of viruses. I prefer Grooveshark because it lets me cherry-pick exactly which songs I want.

    If you want to drool over the cutest iPhone covers, they're at http://www.myhabit.com/?ie=UTF8#page=b&dept=women&sale=AXDXGPED3FCVJ&ref=qd_g_cur_img_b . If I had a smartphone, I would want the pink Swarovski crystal one.

  4. girl, get Songify. I'm not going to tell you what it's about, I want you to experience the joy of it on your own. It's ridiculously hilarious!

  5. Okay, I need a new cover and I'm totally leaning towards Kate Spade covers. :) And yes, I realized you got a phone. ;) LOL
    I think it depends on what you want to use on your phone. Instagram is a fun app...very fun. Obviously, twitter, and FB and all too...I have apps that scan books or food so I know what I'm getting myself into...seriously, it all depends on what you want to use it for! :)

  6. I cannot commit to the iPhone..But if course I have owned two iPods, use an iPad at work, etc.

  7. Words with friends, scramble with friends, draw something are all awesome games to play with your fellow iphone/ipad friends!
    I love nike training center, good workouts and its free!
    Urbanspoon is great when you are looking for a place to eat.
    And for some added fun for instagram, check out hubba hubba, pixlromatic, labelbox and picframe($)
