Thursday Thirteen

13 Apps I Have On My iPhone
(Sadly, I have a lot more than 13, but I'm only listing 13).

The Holy Bible- The app I downloaded has like 15 different translations of the Bible. My personal preference is the New International Version (NIV). The only problem with trying to use it during church is that I look like I’m texting or not paying attention. I promise that I’m looking at the Bible! : )

Genesis 29:17- a GREAT Bible verse! ;)

Facebook- Yes, yes, I have a social networking addiction. And I do go crazy with my mobile photo uploads!

Sportscenter/Fox Sports/MLB (I decided to group my sports apps into one). This comes in handy when I’m trying to catch the score of a game (instead of texting people to find out). Also, when I’m not able to watch the game, it gives me real time game updates. I especially like the Fox Sports baseball gameday page. It tells me who is at bat, who’s on base and who’s pitching. I can even get play by play of the inning. 

Shazam- Who ever created this app is a genius. You know when you hear a song on the radio and you wish you knew who sang it? With the Shazam app, I just open it, hold my phone up to the radio, and it will tell me the name of the song and the artist. I was even able to tag a song at a restaurant one time (if there is a lot of background noise, it doesn’t always work).

Words With Friends- This is basically Scrabble® without using the Scrabble® name (copyright issues). You can play games with other friends that have the app. I will admit that I got too addicted to this one so I stopped playing for a while. I just started a new game with a friend today.

Yelp- This app will find your current location and locate the nearest restaurants, bank, grocery store, gas station etc. It also has reviews. This is great to have when you are in a town you are not familiar with!

WFAA DFW/Dallas News/CBS 11 (again, grouping these into one group)- this has all my local news, sports, traffic and weather updates.

Echofon- This is used to update Twitter. I haven’t really caught on to Twitter and how to use it exactly, but I do follow some famous people. They are entertaining! I try and update my “tweets” at least once a day.  

Sudoku- I finally learned how to play this game. It can be entertaining (and frustrating) all at the same time!

Chick Fil-A- Oh yes, there’s an app for that. I can find the nearest Chick Fil-A from my location with just one press of a button!

U-verse TV- Don’t you hate it when you are not at home and you realize you forgot to set your DVR for a show? Yay, I have an app that allows me to control my DVR from my phone. It’s awesome!

Fandango/Flixster (another grouped together set) I can find out what movies are playing closest to my current location (instead of having to call “The Movie Phone Guy”). I think I can also purchase tickets through my phone.

PAC-MAN- I just downloaded this one. Come on, if you are a child of the 80s, you know you wished at one point you could have PAC-MAN at your fingertips whenever you wanted!

  1. I like the name that song one.
    I am trying to find a decent price point app for grocery shopping, that can tell me the cheapest I have paid for something, and what store that was at.

  2. I showed my sister-in-law Shazam on my iPhone and I swear that's the whole reason she got one... and of course she loves it! I have many fun apps I enjoy--if you like words, you should check out Moxie. It's pretty fun.

  3. I have a Blackberry, but sometimes I wonder if I should have gotten the iPhone. I could use about 8 out of the 13 apps listed here!!

  4. I have a blackberry too, with lots of cool apps. I would love an iPhone but my hubby would not love the bill lol (I am a SAHM now, so no income=no iphone for me Boo!)
