My Favorite iPhone Apps and Why I Use Them
I recently started using the iPhone and thought you might like to know what apps I’m currently using and why I’m using them.
Twitter – I use Twitter. Therefore I use this app.
Desiring God – Intuitive design for accessing John Piper resources.
Fighter Verse – Incredible Bible memorization tool.
PocketSword – Add on for the Fighter Verse app to access some commentary.
Kindle – Constantly using this to read all of my books.
Agenda – a simple solution for Calendar use. The pre-populated emails and messages are a huge plus. Fantastic app that I’ve become a missionary for.
Instagram – fun photography social media.
Shazam – I like music and sometimes I want to figure out what the song is.
Evernote – I’m a premium user. I could write a whole blog post on why this tool is worth your time to download. It’s free to start.
Base – A new CRM tool I’m using for some freelance sales I’m doing.
E Startups – I love reading about startups and best practices.
FoxNews – My news source.
eBay – This has been a key tool in winning bids because it updates me when I’m 50 cents away from winning.
MapQuest – I love the spoken turn-by-turn navigation.
PivotalTracker – I use this for work. Enough said.
Zite – Personalized magazine. Probably getting rid of this in the near future because it’s not getting a lot of use. I used to like to read daily stuff through this.
Saga/Chronos – creepily tracks my life so I can look at where I’m spending all my time.
UrbanSpoon – good food reviews as I attempt to be a foodie.
Starbucks – so I can become a Gold Card member and finally get free refills. Recently had some issues with it.
Book Crawler – incredible tool for organizing my library. Scan the barcodes and I’ll never buy a duplicate book again.
Pages – Essential to every writer. A bit pricy.
MyFitnessPal – using this to get fit.
RunKeeper – using this to track my runs around town.
Games – there are quite a few games I play. Currently rocking Words with Friends consistently.
Flashlight – for those emergency purposes.
OnSong 1.95 – a great tool for worship leaders.
ScoreCenter – essential during the NFL season
ESPN Radio – the Redskins aren’t always playing on local TV.
Redbox – my wife and I are regular movie watchers.
Kids-in-mind – We want to be careful of what we watch, so we check it first.
Stamped – a new app I’m trying out that is supposed to let me “like” all kinds of things.
Glympse – another new app that will send directions to where you are currently at if you want to bring friends together for a meeting.
