I heart these apps!

I love finding new iphone applications that make my life easier or improve  my life in some little way.

Here are a couple that I am into right now:

Iphone App Icons

1.  Fooducate

I love this app because you can scan barcodes at home or at the grocery store and it tells you all about your item.  It grades the item, tells you about harmful ingredients and even offers alternatives.  I have pretty much scanned everything at my house with a barcode.  Who would have known my Special K Chocolatey Pretzel cereal bar would get a C-. Damn you Kelloggs, I knew they were too good to be true.


2.  Camera+

This camera app is the best.  It allows you to take photos and edit them.  You can adjust, crop, flip or add effects.


3.  Pedometer

I just started using this one and I love it.  I just start it before I go walking and it gives me all of my stats including how long I have been walking, my speed and the total number of calories that I burn.


4.  Walgreens

If you are like me and take a monthly medication, this app is a life saver.  You can scan the barcode on the side of your RX bottle to refill your prescription.

5.  Words with Friends

This game is so addictive.  It allows you to play “scrabble” with your friends.  I pretty much am always playing at least 5 games at a time.  I love it.  (If you play, hit me up.  Leave a comment and I’ll email you my username.)

6.  SimplyNoise

Okay so I actually use their website and not the app, but when I found out they had an app I was thrilled.  I fall asleep (usually within 10 mins)  every night listening to SimplyNoise.   It is so soothing and I really think it helps me sleep more soundly.

If this list compels you to download any of these apps, let me know if you like them as much as I do.  What apps are your favorite?

    My current favorites are GoodGuide (it rates food, personal care products, household chemicals, etc. by how good or bad they are for you and the environment), PhoneFlicks (my Netflix app that lets me or remove stuff from my disc and instant queues), Instagram (a cool picture app), and Labelbox (another picture app that allows you to put cute little tape like labels on your pictures). Annnnd they were all free!

    p.s. I’m definitely gonna download the pedometer and camera+ apps.
