We're Talking Apps

Although I am in no way a gadget junkie, I must admit that the iPod Touch I received for Christmas has got to be one of my favorite gifts EVER! Initially I thought it would be useful and fun for music or even the occasional check on random Internet browsing, but not any more.

There is a whole other world when you start checking out all of the applications that are available. Yes, some are just plain silly and a waste of time, but others are pure genius and useful in so many ways. While there are probably thousands out there, I mostly opt for the free ones. Let something be said for getting a freebie. Am I right ladies? So, I think to date I have only actually purchased one or two apps on my Touch. My money can really be used in so many other ways that I choose not to squander it in this area. That's just me.

Any way, my little gizmo has become a family too-often-used 'toy' tool that we all share. Since it is Mommy's for the most part, the children know that when they do ask for another app to be downloaded that they may be asked to discard several others they no longer use. Yup, we change apps about that often.

Of course, I enjoy checking on my facebook as well as Google wherever I am in our home from my Touch. Maybe it's too convenient? I've read from many bloggers of their favorite apps, so I thought I would pass on a few of mine as well: Tap Farm, Tap Jungle, Doodle Bowl, iMissal. My new favorite as of last week is MyNetDiary. It is so handy to keep track of my calories (not that I am really counting, but just becoming more aware of my intake), water consumption, exercise, my meds. and vitamins and a daily analysis. Again, this one is free and is very useful!

So, what are some of your favorite apps? Please leave a comment and share. I'd love to find even more fun ones out there!


  1. enjoying seeing people talk about apps. I love i Rosary-going to check out iMissal.

  2. That calorie counter one sounds great, I'll have to put it on my hubby's ipod touch.

    He has a bunch of games on his, the one I like the best involves rearragning wooden blocks to slide out a red block...and of course, his are all free too!

  3. I don't have much in the way of suggestions, but I hope others do! I can't wait hear about more FREE good apps! :) We did download iPieta, which wasn't free - but we like that one. Can't wait to hear what others have to suggest.

  4. The game Colleen referenced is called "Unblock Me" and seriously, we ALL love that one around here! Also, Words With Friends is good; starbucks locator - used a LOT by us on road trips; kindle app = reading a full length book on your iphone/ipod for FREE! I am reading Little Women right now.... Amazon has tonnes of free kindle titles.

    I am so excited to get my own iphone in August so I can girl-up the apps list with the calorie one and a shopping one I have heard of.


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
