I’ll admit it. I’m a total creeper.
Some of my favorite blog posts are always the “what’s inside my purse, closet, make-up drawer, refrigerator…” you get the point. I was contemplating doing one of those, but then I looked down and there it was. The one thing that is always glued to my side and if it’s not, I have a mild heart attack. My iPhone.
This little piece of magic holds my entire world and might be even more telling than what’s in my purse, closet or gym bag. Plus, I’m in love with all things digital so I couldn’t think of anything more perfect. Presenting…
Of course, the background is of little Lola looking ever so adorable on the beach in her camo sweater.
On this first page, I keep all of the apps that I access most frequently, including categorized folders of my frequented apps.
Social is always on page one because, well, I’m addicted…err…I mean it’s my job. I leave Facebook and Twitter out of the social folder because I access those so much I wanted to cut out an extra step.
One app that I’d like to call out is Pair. It’s a fun app that you and your significant other use to communicate just between each other. You can text, send your location, draw or send pictures, “thumb kiss,” simply hit the “Thinking Of You” button, and more. It’s cheesy, adorable and perfect for the annoyingly mushy couple in your life. Here’s a special gem I drew for Chicken Face explaining my day:
Also on my homepage is my IMAZ folder. This includes apps to the Speedo Pace Club app that I used when I was learning how to swim, links to my WorkoutLog, links to the gym class schedule, links to a doc that has my heart rate zones, and nutrition tracking (which I don’t actually use).
Here’s a glimpse at page two. Notice the prioritization: food is first.
I actually don’t use any of these running apps frequently, but I like to have them on hand. You never know when you’ll need a training plan or need to calculate pace.
I use my Health folder a lot more, specifically for Nike Training Club. I’ve been using that app to lead me through 90 percent of my strength workouts.
Ahhhh, Entertainment. The Xfinity app is a remote control on your phone (huzzah!), Netflix for connecting to the gym TV, and Action Movie to make the most ridiculous looking action movies. Remember that time I bombed Lola?
Photography! Flickr for uploading photos so I can pull them for the blog and Diptic for photo collages. I have a couple other photo apps, but that one seems to be my favorite.
I used to have a slew of news and reading apps, but I deleted them because they were sucking up too much space. So now I just have The New York Times app and use my Kindle to read. I also always leave my last page largely blank so I can flick to that photo and show off my little fur baby.
Of course there’s a boat load of other apps, everything ranging from Bank of America, Mint, Pandora, Wunderlist and more, but like I said, just a glimpse. So tell me, what apps am I missing? What’s your MUST HAVE app?
