I constantly see the tweet or facebook questions, ‘what are your favorite iPhone apps’? And since a bunch of my friends are getting the new Verizon iPhone, I thought I would put this post together.
In no particular order, these are my top five iPhone apps because these I use them A LOT. I have a bunch of apps but these are definitely my favorites.
Echofon – Free or Pro $4.99 (currently on sale for $1.99)
I’m addicted to twitter and I use FOUR different Twitter apps on my phone. My hands down favorite is Echofon. They have a free version as well as a Pro version that regularly costs $4.99 (I have the Pro version because I manage more than just my personal twitter account). I plan on writing a post about all four Twitter apps some day…
I definitely like it because it’s one of the only apps that shows whether another tweep is following you or not.
Also, it has an easy interface to view tweets that go back in forth like a conversation. And the same goes for direct messages. And push notifications when you get an @ reply or direct message has finally started working the last few updates.
The Weather Channel – Free
Inputting a zip code or city/state gets you the current conditions, weather map & video as well as hourly conditions for the next 12 hours as well as a 10 day forecast. I like that you can bookmark different cities. I use this app every morning to figure out what to wear and figure out if I should bring a sweater or jacket with me.
Words with Friends – Free (with ads) or $2.99
Yeah, I’m addicted to Words. If you want to play, my username is snoopyclone. Love that you play your turn whenever you can and it tosses it over to the other player. When it’s your turn again, you’ll receive an alert. You can start games with random players or search via username. There is also a chat function so you can IM the person you’re playing with. Just some advice on that, the usernames are case sensitive. I started a game with someone I thought was my friend but I had the case wrong, it wasn’t her and they told me, I think you have the wrong person.
Hipstamatic – $1.99 (with in app purchases)
Love this photography app, you can add different film and change them up. The app gives you the feel of using an old fashioned 35mm camera and makes your photos look like they are vintage. It comes loaded with different types of film but you can buy different film packs within the app. You can view the images you take in the app and they are also saved in your Camera Roll. Like the pictures of my kitty, Clone?
Instagram – Free
And lastly, a social networking app where you share photos. You can find and follow your friends from facebook or twitter. I really like it because you can also share the images via flickr, tumblr, facebook and twitter. When you share the images through flickr and tumblr, it actually posts the image to these sites. When you share via facebook and twitter, it posts a link to the instagram image. I’m thelittlekitchen if you want to follow me.
My favorite instagram user that I’m following is dogandboy. He or she shares awesome images of their son and their dogs, which are Shiba Inus. I love them!
So, now it’s your turn. What are your favorite iPhone apps? I want to hear what you like…I’m always looking for new apps to download and play with it.
