My Favorite iPhone Apps
Two months ago, I was dealing with my iPhone buyer’s remorse. I have to admit, I’m adjusting quite well. All the little hiccups were just that, hiccups. I’m getting around the BlackBerry Messenger issue by using text. There is a slight delay, but manageable. Email syncing hasn’t been a big problem. I do need to remember to change my password on my iPhone after changing my password at work to continue my sync. Emails are also grouped by subject which is great for tracking an email thread. I’m actually enjoying my iPhone experience. Here are some of my favorite apps.
Lately, I try not to obsess with market fluctuations. It’s been so volatile. But if you need a quick market recap, breaking news, and graphical snapshots, I use the already included Stocks application. It pulls its data from Yahoo! Finance. Simple, already pre-installed, and free!
If you blog and you use WordPress, you need this app. I haven’t typed out a full blown post yet because typing on the iPhone is a little time consuming, but it’s perfect for deleting spam, approving and replying to comments. If you’re on the go, this app is perfect for helping you manage your blog. Are there bloggers who use this app for creating posts?
You all must know my new passion of using public transportation. If I have access to a computer, I just use the LA Metro website. But if I am on the road and need to reroute my travel plans, I use this app to create my travel plan, check on departure times, and estimated cost. Don’t leave home without it. If you don’t live in Los Angeles, check your local public transportation website to see if you have an app for your area. I downloaded a NY subway app when I visited New York.
I learned about this app from the Bucksome Boomer. It came in handy recently as I couldn’t get to a Costco gas station in time. I was running low on gas and I normally would do two things. Try and hold out till my next Costco run, while dangerously running low on gas, risking a bigger experience like calling for gas assistance. Or two, drive on fumes until I break and fill up at a station that costs one dollar more than Costco. Both options are not ideal. I quickly punched in my location and up popped nearby stations with great gas deals. Some were even cheaper than Costco! This app might also be a lifesaver. Just imagine if I ran out of gas in the wrong part of town?
