I was sitting at home yesterday, contemplating what the topic of my next post could be about, playing with my iPhone (of course) and looking at all of my favourite Apps - when I suddenly had a thought....
One of the reasons that we use social media is to gather information from our friends, peers and networks about stuff that we want to know more about, because if you can't trust your mates and fellow users to tell you the truth, then who can you trust!
So I decided to pick the brains of some of my closest i-APPreciators about their favourite Apps and also review a few of my own personal favourites. So, please find below for your reading pleasure, personal, informative and 'hopefully' helpful reviews - for all of those busy people who don't have time (or maybe just the patience) to trawl through the i-Tunes store to look for great Apps ;-)
Click here to read the full reviews (rather than the snippits I have included below) and to see the rest of the reviews that I just couldn't fit in.... as I have only included one review from each category in this post.
TED (ideas worth spreading) - by Jase
Access to lots of presentations on a myriad of topics. i-APPreciation Girl LOVES TED. I cannot recommend this highly enough!
iFitness - by Matt:
Good fitness app for tracking fitness activities. Large range of inbuilt workouts and exercises. Tracks weight and calories, calculates BMI. i-APPreciation Girl also LOVES this App!
Words with Friends - by Dave
Basically Scrabble with a text chat feature, enabling you to also communicate with the people you are playing with. Relaxing and stimulating (?!?! um what Dave) - totally addictive.
Onetap - by Leonie
Excellent to use for checking out the current movies that are showing and their times.
Hamish & Andy - by i-APPreciation Girl
If you love Hamish & Andy then you will love this.... just hilarious!
MUSICShazam - by Joel
Tells you the name of the current track that it can hear. Can be on the radio, or random music on a bus, in a supermarket etc. i-APPreciation Girl loves this App because she never needs to be frustrated again by forgetting the title of a song!
TeamViewer - by Joel
Allows you to remote desktop into computers from your ipad. Platform independant. Can access PC or Mac from your iPad.
I would also love for you to share a review too. Who knows, you may know about some amazing App that will change all of our lives!
Until next time :-)
Yours in geekiness
