Jumping the Gun

The Pink Pagoda was giving away one of their lovely blue & white iPhone covers and I couldn't resist entering even though I didn't have an iPhone. It looks like the universe must have decided that I need one because I won the giveaway.

Seeing as I have an iPhone case and no iPhone I have already started looking at phone accessories. Premature acts like this are nothing new...there have been occasions when I have started planning outfits before I even owned the key items.

Barnacle


Pink Charger


What are your favorite iPhone Apps? I just recently learned about the App that tells you when it's the best time to use the restroom during a movie. That's pretty much all I know...so clearly I need your help.

An absolute must have app is SHAZAM - it's a miracle. If you hear a song you like anywhere - car radio, muzak in the store, you name it - and Shazam will tell you what it is and preserve the info until you can download it.

But beyond that Runkeeper, all kinds of budgeting, shopping list apps.

The iPhone is not just a game changed -it's a LIFE CHANGER! You'll love it!

Hahaha, it now is so very clear to me why I enjoy you and your blog so very much! Clearly we are related in some fashion! My hubby is watching me squirm on a daily basis for an iPhone. Of course our daughter got the 4s for Christmas! Now it is like a battle of will! I am holding out until the 5 comes out in the fall!

That pink charger is darling....must have! As soon as I get my phone, lucky me will have the teenager to set it all up with the best bells and whistles. You know I adore bells and whistles.

Love and Hugs,

That is too funny....I guess you have to get an iPhone now...I mean it would be silly to let a cute case go to waste! I LOVE my iPhone. I had a blackberry before it and the iPhone is in a different league. There were a lot of sites that weren't compatible with my blackberry Internet, but everything works with iPhone Internet. I'm waiting for Lilly Pulitzer to get an iPhone app - that will be a must have!

The weather app - I am such a loser but also "lose it" helps you track calories and exercise I love that one:)

A lot of magazines have apps (Coastal Living is one), Nook, Etsy, Twitter, Starbucks, etc - but the numero uno most important (if you have an ipad) is Find My iPhone! It's amazing and I've used it an embarrasing number of times.

I've had my iPhone for about three months now and LOVE it! Don't worry, I got a case for it well before I bought the actual phone. As far as apps go, I'm going to have to read everyone's comments here. They all sound great, and I don't have that many at all!

Baltimore Prep said...

Congrats on winning the cover! Are you going to wait for the rumored new phone to come out this summer before taking the plunge?

Also there are some ridiculously cute Lilly speakers coming out that you may want to add to that accessory list!

Hi Erin, you should get your case in a day or two. I love Weather Channel, Wikipanion, Words With Friends, Movie Genie, One Kings Lane, Shazam, FB, and Twitter. I have so many more, but never use them. You're going to love your iPhone!
