Here are some random apps that I love. No company has ever given me money for… well, anything at this point really, but especially not to promote their iphone apps. I just like these. “I’m Carrie Anne, and I approve this message!”
Digitally Imported – In the late nineties Anthony and I used to stay up all night dancing to techno music in warehouses. Now if we’re staying up all night it’s because we’re grooving to the repetitive sounds of Isobel whining. Anthony and I still love techno and electronica. Anthony stumbled upon a free app called Digitally Imported with several channels of really, really awesome techno. Several different flavors of techno, too. I love librarianing to music so I listen to this at work a lot.
Chess Free by Optime – A crazy old lady taught me how to play chess in the seventh grade. I hated it! I still do. It’s a character flaw. My husband, however, learned chess from men that were recently released from prison. They were pretty good, seeing as how they had lots of time for practice. At the time, my husband was working at a community center and it was basically his job to 1. play chess 2. play ping pong 3. engage in activities with the children 4. supervise the chess and ping ponging. Anthony loves chess and he’s quite good at it. He amuses himself sometimes by playing against the computer on this, his favorite chess app. He’s tried a couple but this one is his favorite.
(Note: If you were wondering why you haven’t seen me around Words with Friends for awhile it was because the app died along with my phone. I haven’t reinstated it again, but I’ll let everyone know when I do to get some games going again.)
Offline Map Guide – Oh boy, we could have used this while we were lost in the redwoods. Next time I have to go anywhere with spotty to nonexistent cell reception I’m plotting the way using this app first. We’d be lying in a ravine somewhere gnawed on by possums and mountain lions if it weren’t for the paper map we just happened to have with us (courtesy of my mother).
Tap Forms – Are you obsessively organized? Do you, like me, wish you were obsessively organized? Tap Forms keeps all your forms and information organized. Yessss. The Precioussssss.
I’d love to hear your recommendations about your favorite apps for:
