After debating back and forth for a long while, you finally decided that it was time to purchase an iPhone. You’ve been loving the fact that you can easily connect to the Internet and that you can chat with your friends regularly. What other applications do you need to stay on top of the game?
On top of texting with your friends, you can also write on their statuses and respond to messages all day long (except when you’re working or at school, of course!) Additionally, you’ll be able to “check in” to places and upload fun photos of events as they happen.
Words with Friends
Plenty of these games have cropped up in the past year or so; however, it certainly seems that Words with Friends has had the most staying power. This game is basically just like Scrabble, except for the fact that you can play over your phone or online. It’s also possible to have quite a few games going on at once, so it’s possible to see who the real wordsmith is amongst your family members and friends.
It’s likely that one day, you were cruising down the road and enjoying the music only to realize that you had no idea what song you were listening to. How can you ever replay it if you don’t know the title and artist? Well, by using Shazam, that information will be instantly revealed to you. If you’re the one driving, make sure that you have one of your passengers operate this device for you. You should be focusing on driving.
When you’re shopping from home or immediately returning to your house after a trip to the grocery store, it’s easy to account for everything that you purchased. You simply open up your Microsoft Excel file or your notebook, and add the cost to your budget. It’s certainly not that simple when you’re on the go though. With Expensify, you can scan your receipts in order to keep track of this important information. This app will also create financial reports for you.
My Fitness Pal
So many people have tried to battle with their weight. Much like shopping, it’s hard to keep track of numbers when you’re out of the house. You’ll be able to monitor how many calories you have consumed for the day. What’s even better? Well, it’s discrete. You don’t have to sit there asking about fat and calories contents, which has the potential to insult the cook. Just excuse yourself for a minute, head to the bathroom or porch and look up the information on your phone. You’ll always know if you’re eating the right amounts for your body.
With an iPhone, it’s possible to do so much more than before. You can figure out what the tune is playing on the radio, keep tracking of your finances and foods and so, so much more. By downloading these apps, you’ll likely feel and see positive changes emerging in your life very soon.
