Apps You Must Have...Cause I Said So

Ok, I'm not really going to be that bossy...you don't have to get these apps just because I said so. Although, really, you will like them. Promise!

1. Instagram-it's cool, kind of like a news feed for pictures. Lots of people have it, I'm just throwing it in the list in case you don't.
CHALLENGE! I have had a terrible memory lately (taking Ginko Biloba, we'll see if it works) and want to make myself remember to do something as well as expand my creativity, even just a little. I want to make myself take 1 photo a day for the month of March with Instagram so it's logged. I know people do the 365 photo challenge but I'm not up for that. I don't take many photos as it is, so I'm starting small. Who is with me?? I need some help being reminded!

2. Mood Agent-choose a song from your iPod song list and use the five controls at the top to adjust your mood: Sensual, Tender, Happy, Angry, Tempo. Based off your mood levels you set and the song you choose, Mood Agent will pick similar songs out of your library to create a playlist. It has such a fun variety if you have a large variety of songs saved to your phone.

3. Red Stamp-the photo above is from Red Stamp. It has the best designs for virtual cards I've ever seen. Truly. You can customize what it says, choose the occasion and send out to whoever you want via text or email.

4. Convert-it's so easy to use when you need to convert pesky kilograms to pounds. It is very helpful in cooking as well! I've used it way more than I thought I would.

5. Flashlight-I downloaded this when I was with my best friend in West Palm Beach and we were going out one night to see the sea turtles come up and lay eggs. It was one of the coolest experiences ever. However, you have to have a red light so that you don't scare the turtles away and can still see them. The flashlight itself is very bright, there are many different options for the flashlight, colored lights, distress lights, even silly neon lights and lighters.

6. Houzz-Just like the website, the app is inspiring and awesome. Houzz is just so cool all around. It's easy to swipe through the photos and add something to your idea book.

7. Whole Foods-this recipe app has tasty and healthy recipes. The only downside is that some things call for Whole-Foods-specific ingredients that you can't normally find at Kroger.

8. Yoga-no excuses to not have a workout on the go! The yoga app has a lot of different programs you can use or create your own. It gives you a photo of the position and a voice guides you along with a clock as well. Pair it with Pandora's yoga station in the background and it's actually really nice. I did a 45 minute workout the other day at my apartment. I could have gone somewhere or done a DVD but actually preferred this!

9. Evernote-so handy. It's serious note-taking on the go. I am so glad I downloaded this. It updates quickly between your devices too. I. Love. It.

10. Tiny Tower-when you first start this game you'll think it's silly. It is. However, it is so much fun. I don't even know why...it's just addicting. You have to stock every floor of your tower, employ those who live there (called bitizens) and even give them their dream jobs as well. Check out the Wiki page for more information. You can also see your friends' towers too! If you want to be my friend let me know! :-)
