An apple a day

Keeps Mama very happily, very organised!

I know I am late in coming to the party but now that I have it I don't know how I lived without my iPhone.

Everything in one place, information at my fingertips - just how I like it.

So share the Apple love with me.

What's your favourite App?
What makes your life easier or more organised?
What do your kids enjoy?
What do you have just for fun?

I share your Apple love too!

If you are like me and like knowing how much battery life you have remaining in terms of %, go to Settings, General, Usage and turn Battery Percentage on. I prefer it that way....

As for apps, I have a gazillion! I used to have about 15 pages of it until I removed some and sorted them in folders. I will be back later with some of my favourite apps.

Well I only have a touch but here are my favourites: Jamie Oliver 20 min meals; Scrabble; Lucy loves colouring in apps; traffic rush; anything pre-school really. Charlotte likes - Diner Dash etc; tetris; I think I need more apps. Discount iTunes cards at Target or Kmart this week I think. I'll be watching to see everyone else's suggestions

I LOVE my iPhone and my iPad.

My favourite app is Sleep Cycle, a really nice alarm clock. It senses your sleep cycle and wakes you when you are in your lightest sleep.

Dropbox makes my life more organised, you install dropbox on your pc and your phone, drag files into the dropbox on your pc and they will appear on your phone.

The kids enjoy Doodle, a drawing app.

Just for fun I love Bejeweled 2.

Well, I don't have one, but I use my husbands... Sunday Lawn is addictive (atleast untill you have completed all the levels several times)- don't download it!
Mr. 3 loves the shapes game (can't recall exactly what it is called), while Mr. 1 loves anything Daddy deems worthwhile for him (music apps for kids, matching memory games, etc.)
Have fun with yours! :)

I just love my iPhone, too, and I don't know how I could have lived without it until now. I love trying out applications and I can't live without SoundHound, Hipstamatic and LOMO. You should give them a try.
Enjoy using your iPhone!

Love, love, love my i-phone. Its like having my whole computer in my pocket when I'm not at home.

The kids love the games. No need to buy an expensive DS and games. They love the games and they are cheap! Hubby and I both have an i-phone so there's one for each kid.

Husband loves run keeper, 3 yold loves colouring and counting games, 7 y old loves car, pac man, sally spa, angry birds etc etc.

Period tracker also handy for us girls.

Enjoy your new baby.

I only got my iphone about 3 months but I love it so much. Ellie loves the Talking Tom and Cupcakes. I love Word Warp.

Also use Gratitude! to record daily things to be grateful for - some days I need to remind myself that things are not all bad.

I use Paperless to store lists of information and Money Journal to try and keep an idea of where I spend my money.

I have tried quite a few of the to do lists and there are some good ones but I realised I just really like paper and ink for my to dos.

Enjoy your new toy
