Upgrade!

This week’s lesson: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 

After my last phone took a little spin through the washing machine bit the dust this weekend, I am happily upgrading to the iPhone 4. (Thank you, Mom and Dad!) My first big girl phone — and no. 28 on my 101 in 1001 list!

Now I need your help. Any advice from fellow iPhone users? Favorite apps? I must know!

  1. ohhh lucky!! i’d love to get one. someday soon I hope… until then a girl can dream.

    Can you post your full list? You’ve shared snippets and I am definitely intrigued to create my own. I’d love to read yours! of course, you can put “private” or some other placeholder for everything too personal to share. 🙂

  2. Other than mentioned above, my favourites are:
    1. Blogpress (to publish posts on the go – or – I mostly use it to write ideas on the go and then save them as draft for later!!)
    2. Ebay! Never miss another bid… it has alerts and easy bidding.
    3. Houzz has an app with tons of inspiration pics!
    4. Skype – hello free video calls!!! Best to use with wifi though and not 3G!

  3. So obsessed with mine! Get the Hipstamatic photo app, the Happy Hour app & Words With Friends so you can play scrabble with all your iPhone pals 🙂

  4. Out with the old and in with the new! I LOVE my iPhone 4, I couldn’t survive without the pandora app or my echofon app for twitter. Both are free which is a complete bonus! xx

  5. you are going to LOVE it. i just got mine last month! apps to get: pulse, pandora, bump, mint, around me, trip tracker, instagram

  6. Congrats!

    First get the standard apps: Twitter and Facebook.

    Next apps for your health: My Fitness Pal, Nike Training Club, Sleep Cycle

    Apps that make life easier: Grocery IQ, Convert Units, Tipulator, Smart Chef

  7. Shazam is great if you enjoy music… you hear a song on the radio and click it and it shows you the name/artist and you can buy directly from iTunes! You will love it – get a pretty case and you will love it even more!

  8. You’re gonna love it!

    A few of my favorite apps:
    aNote (To Do app with alarm), Newsrack (RSS reader), iBooks, iP (period tracker), Etsy Addict, Hipstamatic (camera), Web Albums (if you have Picasa albums), Words (scrabble to play with friends),Pandora, Mobile Card (to reload starbucks card)…

    There are so many more but those are only a few I can think of right now. Enjoy!

  9. I have tons of apps, but I really like that you can add your bank or AMEX so you can keep up with your accounts all the time. I use my Wells Fargo app the most! And words woth friends, it’s addictive!

  10. My only advice is to buy the snakeskin Michael Kors case to go with it;) I don’t know what I love more- my phone or its case! You’ll LOVE the iphone- I just got mine a month ago and already couldn’t imagine not having it!!
