Do you notice anything new?

Me. Again.

No, not the shirt. That was so last month.

(Hint: It’s the fancy gadget in my hand.)


Please don’t hate me because (m)iPhone is beautiful.

Do you know how people rant and rave about something and you wonder if it is really worth the hype? I am here to tell you that IT IS SO WORTH THE HYPE. Words cannot even express how amazing that thing is, so I won’t even try.

All I want to know from you is what App you recommend. Kerri Anne‘s hubby Chris emailed me his faves and I have been a downloading fiend. But I know that everyone has their own favorites. Hit me.

(But not literally. I’m fragile. Ish.)

    I noticed RIGHT AWAY. Congrats on the iPhone!! I hope you love it more and more each day :) Since I do not have an iPhone, I cannot recommend any apps to you. I don’t even know the name of one. I’m lame.

    ps. apparently iPhones take WAY better photos than any other camera phone – wowza.

    pps. I was going to ask you why your ring is on the wrong hand … then realized you’re taking a photo IN THE MIRROR which is why YOU CAN SEE THE PHONE. Hi. I’m blonde. Speak slowly.

    Nimbuzz, Skype, TouchType, TruPhone, Fake-a-Call, AllRecipes, ebay, Google, IM+ Lite, Night Stand, UrbanSpoon, Flashlight,, Countdown, Remote, Wikipanion, GPS Tracker, and all the phrasebooks in different languages – french, german, spanish, greek, italian, etc.

    These are all free, I haven’t bought a single one, but would love to know what others love.

    I have other ones but I have a feeling you will already have them – flight status, twitter, facebook, etc.

  4. angella April 15, 2009 2:45 am edit

    So far I have Tweetie for Twitter (Not free, but worth $2.99), Facebook, WordPress (Post from your phone!), Shazam (AWESOME), Flashlight, AroundMe and Yelp.

    I have heard that Skype won’t work in Canada, but I need to check that out. I’m looking forward to checking the others out :)

    Urbanspoon, Remember the Milk, Amazon Kindle, Flickit, FastCamera, Midomi, Flashlight, iTV, Wordpress, Facebook, Twittelator…

    I also often download freebie apps to play and delete them if they bore me.

    Oh yeah… More Cowbell. Totally not useful, but cracks me up.

    Tweetie is so worth the $3 – I wish I had downloaded it ages ago. I love the free solitaire app, To Do, Bubble Wrap (strangely satisfying!), Open Table, Urban Spoon. I could go on forever, but that would require me grabbing my phone :)

    I love my iphone so much. I have definitely made it a part of my life. Graham and Nathan might love the fart apps. I only get the free ones, though. I’m too cheap for expensive farts, especially when there’s so much of it in this house. :)

  14. Kristin April 15, 2009 7:23 am edit

    Yay!! So excited for you!!! My favs are Groceries (not free, but the best app), stickies, bible (free and tons of translations), notes, textropolis, pac man, kid art, lightsaber (hello star wars), pocket god, tap tap revenge, topple, tiki towers… umm I could go on. The last half are kid games. You can download free podcasts which my kids love – pinkydinky doo and super why plus lots of shows. Fill the puppy up!

  15. Maria April 15, 2009 7:58 am edit

    Ok – you need the bump application, for BlogHer. I’m about to tweet about it now, actually. All you have to do is touch fists holding iPhones with someone else that has the app too and your contact info automatically gets exchanged. Number, address ,blog, email, -whatever you want.

    The techy, iPhone equivalent of blog cards. :)

    Oh – and get a cover if you haven’t already – Darron’s on his third phone since summer – thank goodness his is covered thru work. :) (oh and Around Me is really great , too. Type in whatever you are looking for – like Winners and it will tell you the closest one and map it for you. )

    Sweet phone! I actually bought a new phone yesterday and really thought long and hard about the iPhone but financially I just couldn’t see it being worth it for myself. I have a laptop and an Ipod, which basically made me decide I really didn’t need to pay for a data plan on the iPhone… (which I realize you have an Ipod and a laptop as well, and the iPhone is totally rad none the less, but just a personal decision I had to make for myself!) :)

    I instead bought a Samsung from Rogers for $30 bucks! Woohoo, way to stay dutch I figure!
    Its the phone from the commercial, slides in, slides out, slides in, slides out. I actually love it, which was surprising because the commercial annoys the hell out of me, but since I am a text fiend (sp?) it works for me.

    Have fun with your iPhone!! Ooh, and a bunch of my friends use Skype in Canada…so it should work here!

    Still waiting on the phone, but my honey brought home a touch a few weeks ago. Finally got to surf on it over the weekend…FREAKIN’ AWESOME.
    Fave apps (mostly free ones for now):
    Gift Planner
    Darkroom (Im sure you’ll appreciate this one and the next two)
    Oil Canvas
    Colour Canvas
    Flick Fishing (just like the commerical…and it is so addictive)
    Easy Recipes (there are some really good recipes on it)
    Have fun!

    Are you are making it sooooo hard to wait. I want mine NOW!!!

    I can upgrade in May and since i just joined the cool kids by getting a MacBook Pro last month I am really itching to get an iPhone. And I sooo want it yesterday. I have a Palm 750 that is nice, but with the mac switch I can’t wait for the iPhone.

  30. Karen April 15, 2009 10:13 pm edit

    I just got one, too. I’m kind of scared of it. How does it dooooo that? I like the level, because I’m a geek. Look, straight pictures! Hey, our floors are crooked! Neat, the table is flat! I’m easily amused. Shazam is fun for the “WTF?” value. Mobile Fotos is good for instant upload to Flickr and access to your flickr site so you can be like me and force everyone to appreciate your latest kid pics. Honestly, everything else I’ve put on it can be summed up as “Sudoku”. Because I’m apparently an elderly numbers game fan who mostly just appreciates it when the mirror is hung evenly.

    If you figure out how to change the ring tone, let me know. I’m SURE I should be able to make it play some kind of new-fangled song.

    I’m thinking about my next phone…Do I go fancy or just leave it a regular phone!?! This post does not persuade me. One. Bit. Hahaha :) I have to admit that I was confused about the wedding ring too!!!

  32. Jen April 16, 2009 1:29 pm edit

    Urbanspoon, Flixter, Facebook, and Amazon are my favorites! Congrats on the new purchase :-)

  33. movin down the road April 18, 2009 1:57 pm edit

    Aroundme is my favorite!!! I am a new iphoner….SO worth the $300 and the monthly. I can’t say enough. (so I’ll stop. because I-know-you-know-what-I’m-talking-about)

    I only get free apps, so I’m the wrong person to ask.
