I have a smartphone. I am to poor to have service on it, but it was free and I am home all the time so I use it on my wi-fi. It is SUPER! Everything works except the phone part (but you can download nettalk and then you can call people, but they can’t call you and it sounds like crap) and Skype. I don’t use Skype, so I don’t really care.
I have WAY to many apps. But some of them are awesome. Here they are in Alphabetical order.
- Alchemy – a weird game, but its really fun. Well until you get stuck and give up temporarily like a have for the moment.
- Angry Birds – you throw birds at pigs and try and smush them. Its way cooler then it sounds. Also try Angry Birds Seasons for some themed fun.
- Bible by YouVersion – best Bible app I have found. Has interactive reading plans, works on the phone and the computer.
- Bubble Blast – you pop bubbles. Four versions: original, 2, holiday, and Valentine’s
- CardioTrainer – tracks your calories burnt and how far you walked, I use this one almost everyday!
- Diet & Food Tracker by Sparkpeople – track your calories in and out on your phone. Links to online account
- Dolphin Browser HD – when you download a free add-on you can visit the full version sites, not just the crappy mobile ones. Sadly companies pay alot of extra money for mobile sites, but I hate them. I don’t know the add-on name because my husband downloaded it for me.
- FML – its kind of a guilty pleasure, but there are some crazy stories and its a fun time-waster.
- GeoQpons – save money at stores, use coupons without a printer! I have saved 33% of a book at Borders and 10% off my entire purchase at Joann’s using this app.
- GetGlue – a time waster where you rate movies, TV shows, books, etc. See what your friends are doing.
- Movies by Flixster – find movie times and reviews.
- OB Wheel – keep track of everyone’s due dates. Not applicable for everyone, but if you have lots of pregnant friends its pretty fun!
- Pink Pad – free and paid versions. I only have the free version, but its pretty cool. Doesn’t show you a BBT chart until you upgrade, but it has the best widget, as well a community message board that is pretty active. This is one I am considering paying for because it would be nice to take the charts with me on my phone to the fertility doctor.
- TV.com – watch TV on your phone. Limited selection, but some good stuff.
- Where’s My Droid – text a message saying “where’s my droid” to your number from another phone. Even if your phone is on silent or vibrate it will start going off at full volume.
- Wikidroid – sure you could just use Wikipedia on the internet, but this is faster and streamlined.
All of these apps are free, and except for Where’s My Droid and TV.com I use them on a regular basis.
