Favorite iphone Apps

I have had an iphone for a few years now...
I really didn't want one, but when Verizon started selling them,
my sweet husband decided that I HAD to have one.
(he wanted one and it was not time for his upgrade)
 
Well...I have to say I love my iphone far more than I ever could have imagined.
I have many apps on my phone...the usual FB, Insta, Twitter, Pintrest...
But here are a few more that I happen to love....
 
 
3 Initials
I love monograms and this app lets you create monogram wallpaper for your iphone.
There are several fonts and many colors and you save your monogram as a file and can email it to your computer or ipad to use other places.
Here is my current monogram on my iphone....
 
I know you are shocked....pink and green.
 
 
 
Craig's List
I am a craig's list junkie and am always searching CL for deals on just about anything. I found a lawn vacuum on CL that my husband was going to buy new for half the price...I also look at antique furniture, china and crystal, and oriental rugs.
I like the Craig's List app because I can search CL when I am waiting....
and I do A LOT of waiting...in car pool lines, before games start, orthodontist appointments, etc.
and it's fun to check out what might be out there calling to me!
 
Houzz
This is a GREAT app for anyone who is into decorating.
I have the app for my ipad, which is better because the pictures are bigger,
but it's fun to look through and search out decorating photos and articles on my phone...
while I am waiting....
 


Days Until App
This is an app you can use to keep track of how many until an event...
whether it be a vacation, a test, a birthday, a holiday,etc.
It also keeps track of how many days have passed since the event happened.
It is very user friendly and you can add a picture to your event...
although I have not figured out how to add a picture that does not get distorted.
Here is one of my days until...

It's fun to keep a countdown for certain events!

My blog friend Katie, from Preppy Empty Nester posted about some great apps back in June...
see here for her list!

What are your favorite apps?
I'm always looking for new ones!

I love my Realtor.com app because it has a "homes nearby" button. If I'm in an interesting neighborhood, I'll check out homes for sale just out of curiosity. Plus, I love seeing how people decorate via their listing pictures. :)

Well, it's pretty evident from my Facebook and Instagram photos that I'm addicted to the Rhonna Designs app -- https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rhonna-designs/id667819594?mt=8. It's great when you're "waiting" too. ;)

I love the IMDB app because I am always looking up actors, movies, shows, etc. I also use Flixster to keep track of movies I want to see
