The first app I downloaded was Google Maps, followed by Good to get corporate email. What other apps are must haves? Any tips on what settings to turn on or off to maximize performance?

Then go out to eat and snap a pic of your meal and slap an Instagram filter on it and cross post it to your facebook account.

Here are a few more:

Angry Birds
Netflix (if you have their streaming option)
Songza
Kindle
Accuweather
Camera+

If you have any specific interests, like fitness/diet, photography etc, chances are there are apps for that.


As for fitness/diet, I love "Lose It" and it is free too! *

Their syntax for pausing works even without their app.

In other words, if you enter it into your regular calendar or as a contact as "1-800-555-5555,,,12345#", it will dial the number, pause, and then enter the conference code, followed by a pound.


I'd get the app for your bank.

I use Chase, and if I need to transfer money or pay a bill or something while I am out, then I can do it over my phone.

NBC Live works well for home Notre Dame games if you're not in front of the TV.

The "Find My IPhone" app is great if you have an iPod as well. If you lose your phone, you can either remotely track it or wipe your data.


On your last line. You don't need an ipod to use 'find my

Unless you can eat it, drink it, breathe it, or **** it, the value of anything is effectively arbitrary.


I was amazed!

by IAND75  (2012-12-20 12:58:02)     Delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

Reeder, Twitterrific or Tweetbot, Goodreader, Evernote, theScore, Instapaper, Dropbox

I use OmniFocus for task management, but that is probably overkill for most people, as Reminders serves the purpose for basic use

Kindle app and iBooks for books.

iWork apps (Pages, Numbers and Keynote) if you need that capability


Some ideas

The flashlight has come in handy a bunch of times. Evernote and Camera +. And, a ton of porn.
