If you’ve read my About page, you’ll know I’m a self-confessed gadget geek. Even more, I’m a fully subscribed Apple addict. I have my iPod, my Mac book, my iPhone and since today, my iPad! Beyond excited!!!! Anyhow, I get lots of my friends asking me about the apps I use most on my iPhone so I figured I might do a little post on it here. Feel free to comment and suggest apps to me – and let me know what I simply must have for the iPad!
Evernote – great for organising, making lists, photographing bottles of wine I like by location, and recording things
XE currency – I travel a lot, and buy online even more, so a decent currency converter is always handy
QRReader – Lately I find myself using this more and more, especially in competitions!
Word Lens – Take a photo of a sign in a foreign language and find out what it means. Handy for travels and fun!
Sky+ – I never remember to record stuff on TV so use this plenty on the road
Dropbox – Perfect for saving files and accessing them later
Bump – Great if your mate has photos on her iPhone that you want asap, or music or anything really!
AccuWeather – Its seems pretty accurate. And I love that it gives daily rating for hair frizz risk, bicycling, kite flying and arthritis risk among others 🙂
IMDb – For all those drunken conversations where you just have to think of THAT movie name or THAT actress
Instagram – So easy to use and makes beautiful picture effects
Hipstamatic – I don’t use this as much as Instagram anymore, but I still love the old school feel to its photos
Photosynth – For great panoramics

Broadsheet – Possibly the best and funniest time waster ever! Love their typo finds, cat videos and on location photos
Entertainment.ie Cinema Guide – Always right (unlike some I’ve used…)
Angry Birds – Addictive. All seasons.
The Heist – For when my brain needs a test
SHOUTcast – The iPhone’s downfall? No radio. Thanks to SHOUTcast it does!
