It’s no secret. I heart my iphone. I’m still not sure if this mobile wonder makes me more effective or if it’s just a time suck. I’m guessing a little of both.
And the apps! Oh the apps. Who would ever have imagined such a concept? If you have a need want, there is an app. I won’t tell you how many pages of apps I have…
It will save you from judging me.
I keep my page(s) of apps organized by category. On one page I have apps for things like movies, restaurants, wine, and travel. Sadly that page has a lot of virtual dust on it. I really should make dinner reservations more often.
On another page I’ve collected entertaining apps for the Littles. Apps like ABC Animals, Crazy Eye, and Bubbles are great temporary distractions for a cranky two year old who is DONE with being at the grocery store.
And then I have the valuable resources page. Despite what it sounds like, I am NOT trying to justify my iphone addiction. This is where the Wikipanion, Google, New York Times and Bible apps live. Did you know there was a Bible app? I use it every day. You can get it here.
A couple of days ago I came across a new-to-me app called Bible Shaker. You pick a topic, shake the iphone, and a verse related to the chosen topic appears. Some of the topics and verses are taken out of context and I certainly wouldn’t rely on this app for spiritual wisdom. However, I would be lying if I said it didn’t please me to no end when the Littles chose ‘children’ as a topic this is the verse they find:
Now I’m justifying my iphone.
