Weekly Poll: What Are Your Favorite Apps?

If you have a smartphone, you probably have a smorgasbord of apps that help you get through your day. Maybe you have a couple of games you play to kill time and de-stress. You might also have a few special applications that appeal to something specific in your life, like an app for Bible verses, book recommendations or local movie listings.

Maybe we can help each other be more productive and discover some fun and useful ways to keep informed! If you don’t have a smartphone, we’d love to hear if that was a personal choice and if so, why?

    My dad bought me an iPhone for Christmas, and I absolutely love it! I like to use Pinterest for something of a “stress relief” and I like to browse Facebook. My favorite games are “Rushing Alice” and Card Shark. =)

    the way i get new app is by realizing i need/want my phone to do something new, so I go searching for apps.

    Best apps: Kindle app (don’t need a new device to buy e-books!!!) and the Bible (changed my bible experience forever!)

    I have an iPhone 4. I waste a lot of time on apps. 😛 I use email & the Internet a lot.
    Useful apps: Sleep Cycle (very cool alarm clock), & AllRecipes (for recipes in a pinch)

    Beneficial apps: Accordance (really great for Bible study), TED Talks (fascinating videos on many topics), SAT Question of the Day (I’m in High School after all), & iBooks (I love iBooks!)

    Games: (I go through phases with games, I don’t play any one consistently) Cut the Rope, Jetpack Joyride, Gesundheit!, & Trace

    Social: Facebook, Pinterest (love, love, love!), Words With Friends, & Draw Something

    I don’t necessarily have a smartphone…it’s an iPod touch 4th gen. So I can use the apps people with iPhones can (there are even apps that allow me to call and text people for free!) but I need to be in range of wifi for internet access. 🙂

    Who needs your own iphone when you can constantly borrow your parents or your friends. Plus a ton of apps can just be found online if you REALLY want to play them.

    I think It’d be great to get an app compatible with all apple devices and most android that is a P.I. App! I’m always on my phone and I could be on P.i. at the same time!

    I have an iPad that i use all the time! My favorite app of all is by far Netflix, because I love the Office! Another one of my favorites is Shopmox, because it is a mall in one app! You select your favorite stores and the app shows you the newest stuff in every clothing category imaginable! I also love Pinterest, Twitter, and Pose, which is like a Pinterest/Instagram for fashion lovers! And it is free, which is awesome! I follow celebs on there and other super models like Coco. 😉 I love Animator Creator, because as an amateur animator I like having something to use on my iDevices. 😀 I love ColorStrokes, which allows beginner photo-shopping artists to practice on their own photos. Once you become more advanced, I recommend using Adobe Photoshop elements.
