Every now and then (most likely on my hardcore weekend party time nights where I’m curled up in bed with my dog, Gustav, and a tube of raw cookie dough, Pillsbury) I go through an app binge. Meaning, I download 50 gajillion (or so) apps and make it like no one else’s business to test them out within the next week or two or more. Why? Because I am a fan of technology and it’s fun. I eventually delete the ones that don’t work for me and rave about the ones that do. This morning, I thought, “Why not write about it?”
Here are this week’s Apps I’m loving:
Haste: Addictive as all hell. It’s like they invented a word game with the crackhead impulsivity of Tetris, the wit of Scrabble, and then (everything else awesome of) Boggle and senior citizen crossword puzzles. For the 21st century crowd. Turn off the sound because the harp like (xylophone?) effects are obnoxious and distracting. Other than that, it’s amaze. Challenge me. Fair warning, I will kick your butt.
Happier: “Why are you so happy, Mira? Is it that new app you downloaded?” Yes and yes. Happier is a a social site. I know. Another one? But this one you don’t have to worry about your popularity levels through fans and followers to benefit. Every time you log in a happy thought, Happier helps you celebrate. Watch the fun graphics of balloons and rainbow fish while confetti explodes. Instant mood lifter. And a nice reminder to “stop and smell the roses.”
iCoffee: The app icon is so cute. So so cute! Truly for the coffee obsessed only. Get recipes, fun quotes and photos, and even the history of coffee in this fun app. If you’re tight on iPhone GB’s, it’s not totally worth the space but fun for those that are always curious about drinkables and edibles, like myself.
Wunderlist: Make lists. Organize them. All under one list. ALL THE LISTS! The most organized and easy-to-use list maker I’ve tried yet. Definitely the simplest. No frou frou reminders, obnoxious sharing options, or glitchy prioritization gimmicks. Just make a list and look back at it, like the good ol’ days of pen and paper. Modern day perks included. My lists are divided by grocery stores, (Target, Trader Joe’s) article categories, (Beauty, Food) and life responsibilities (John’s Favorite Snacks, John’s Baseball Gear, Routine House Chores) so I never forget the important repetitive stuff. Which is just so easy to do.
Stay tuned for the next “Apps I’m Loving…”
Hope this helps,
