The iPhone Addiction

So I finally stepped into this decade and bought a phone with e-mail access. I decided on the iphone because everyone (including Gabe) seems to rave about it and so far I'm loving it and can see how this could be addicting! I'm still figuring things out and am downloading apps like crazy (who knew a phone could be so fun). I'm sure lots of you have iphones, so what are the great apps that I must download? Let me know your thoughts!

How exciting Valerie! I love my iphone, and now with the big Steve Jobs announcement, I can't wait to get my hands on the new one! There's SO many apps to choose from, but it really depends on what you'll use/need. Here are some of my favorites:

Trip Case
Echofon (for twitter)
Blog Press
You Note lite
AT&T's My Wireless
Lose it
Shop Style
Feather Report
Free DL Wait times (Dland/CA adventure wait times)

Have fun with your new phone! :)

I wish I had an iphone! I need a new phone and have been wondering what to get. Good to know you like it!

Kim Neill said...

WoOoO bring on the IPhone :D xx

Erica said...

Yes, it can become very addictive!
I love old time photo (so hilarious) and ice hockey.

I second the Lose it app! My absolute fave and I use it every day!! Pandora is great to have and The Weather Channel App is great too!! Get ready for a serious addiction. When I lost mine I seriously had withdrawals. ;)

I've got a blackberry, so I'm not much help! Good luck figuring your new toy out. I seriously dreamed about my blackberry the night after I got mine because I played with it so much. :)

I still am using a flip phone =) I could use the web on it, however it doesn't seem like a phone that is web friendly and I don't want to pay for the data plan. I'm verizon, so I've been thinking about upgrading to a Driod.
Happy new phone fun!!!

Thank you for your kind words!

I want one SO badly! I wish it would come to Verizon already....!

Nikki said...

I did the same thing last summer, and I was hooked within hours! It's really a wonderful thing, and you'll see how handy and helpful it can be to just find directions, take pictures, use yelp for restaurants, etc.
Also, Pandora for Music is an amazing app if you don't already have it.

Congratulations on your new phone! :D

Congratulations on the new phone! I'm a BlackBerry girl myself; though I've always admired the iPhone from afar! :)

i love my iphone x

Elle Sees said...

I love Iphones but I love my fast internet and service better on my Verizon Droid. But the new Iphones are so amazing. Makes me jealous!

Nathalie said...

welcome to the addicted club :) I have facebook and twitterific as my basic apps... cannot live without!

g e o r g i a said...

My sister is trying to talk me into getting one! They do look fun! Congrats :) Have a great day!

Marcie said...

Congrats on taking the plunge! I am still using my phone that looks like it's from the 90s. I am holding out for Verizon to get teh iPhone, but I may have to give in soon. I just love these phones and feel so out of the loop without it.

:) Marcie

Elle said...

hahaha... I'm still using a flip phone, and have decided to make the plunge too... waiting until the 15th to see what price they release the 4 at... if they release it at $199 then I'll be reserving my very own iphone 4, if it's more than that then I'll be ordering the 3GS... glad to know I'm not the only one late to the iphone train! :)

Bren said...

For all of you waiting for the iphone to hit Verizon, I'm hearing rumblings that it may come as early as Christmas time. Don't quote me on that, but from what I've noticed, AT&T is taking steps to make it harder for people to get out of their contacts. Most likely due to losing exclusivity with the iphone. I've been with AT&T forever, so for me it's just easier to stay and upgrade. Verizon's phone service is definitely better, but it'll be interesting to see how they're able to handle the data load of the iphone users. Apparently the iphone is like the Hummer in the smart phone world. We suck up the most data of any other smart phone. Probably because the experience is so amazing!

Sorry, I'm a little bit of a geek when it comes to the iphone! Can you tell I love it?! :)

You're lucky to have an Iphone ! Personaly I prefer Blackberry, because it's hard for me to move the screen ^^
Lovely blog !

Glad you got an iPhone! I have a BlackBerry but I'm thinking it's going to be an iPhone next. On my BB I use my Pandora, Facebook and Twitter apps the most, but you'll have so many more to choose from!

Sarah said...

Krystal said...

Jess said...

LOVE my iphone - I could never go back!! I really like the "Words with Friends" app - you can play scrabble with friends that have the same app (I'm a dork I know!) hahah
Have fun!

Here's a link to the apps post my bestie did on our blog! http://bonbonrose9.blogspot.com/2010/04/three-bonbon-worthy-iphone-apps.html

i am laughing at Bren's post with the list. I am excited for you that you got an iphone! I want one so badly! I have a verizon contract that is not up for 9 more month and my fiance keeps telling me that i need to wait. I hate waiting. :( I am so impatient. In the mean time I play on his Ipod Touch which is fun but I don't get wi-fi everywhere which is not fun. Anyhow, want to play words with friends? If you like scrabble you will like this game. It is a free download. My name is hiyaluv if you want to play! hit me up!

You went to the dark side! You should come join us in Blackberry land. It's super fun. Join us! ;)

Have fun with your new phone. I'm getting ready to update my Blackberry for the new one. Yay!

Lisa Griffin said...

California Wife said...

Ahh, I'm so jealous! I have been begging my husband for an iphone for over a year! He refuses to switch!

Jules said...

Ahhh…jealous. This is on my wish list. I am so ready to trade my BB Curve in for an iPhone. I think it might finally happen at the end of this summer. Have fun with it!

Alex Dom said...

love my iphone! its the most versatile device! teen vogue and style.com a must download!!

Join the Gossip said...

I love my iPhone! I came from a Razor...yeah so I hadn't had email or internet on a phone until this one. I love the Words With Friends app! Scrabble but you play at your pace.


Oh have fun with it! I don't have one yet...been addicted to my blackberry for years and don't have AT&T but I think I'm ready to make the switch now with the new one that came out :)
