In case you haven’t noticed, I use apps… a lot! Last post, I listed the top 10 (11 if you count the bonus) FREE iPhone apps that I use on a regular basis. Some of these are productivity apps, some of these are entertainment based, ALL of these make my life easier! Here are the PAY apps that I love…
MindNode $7.99 – Excellent Map Mapping App. Syncs with MindNode Pro on my desktop. For more info on Map Mapping click here. (iTunes Link)
Things $9.99 – Things is my “Go to” GTD app. It’s my to-do list, project manager, task manager, etc. I use this app everyday. (iTunes Link)
JotNot $2.99 – This is a new one to me. It’s basically a scanner in my iPhone. I can snap pics of my receipts, documents, etc. and send them straight to Evernote on my desktop and iPhone. (iTunes Link)
Tweetie 2 $2.99 – Yes I pay for my Twitter client, and it is WORTH it! Tweetie has the best user interface I’ve ever used for Twitter. I like everything about it. I can even save Tweets as drafts to use later. (iTunes Link)
CameraBag $1.99 This is one of my favorite photo apps. I can tweek pics, turn them into Polaroids, Vintage pics, use effects, and much more. Great app if you take lots of pics on your iPhone. (iTunes Link)

Grocery IQ $0.99 – I do a lot of grocery shopping and this helps me keep track of what we need and helps me not to forget the milk! (iTunes Link)
WriteRoom $4.99 A simple distraction-free word processor and note taker. I love it because it syncs with the WriteRoom desktop app. (iTunes Link)
Midomi Music Indentifier $4.99 If there’s a song on the radio that I can’t identify, I simply use this app to give me the title, artist, and album info. AND I can buy it straight from iTunes through this. It’s a music lover’s dream app. (iTunes Link)
I live on my iPhone. Whether you consider it healthy or not, the truth is that much of my day is spent on it. For work, entertainment, communication or productivity; if there’s something I need to do then there better be an app for that!
Here are the top 10 FREE iPhone Apps that I use and love! (in no particular order). If I missed any please let me know.
Evernote – Great note taking app. I use it to capture tons of ideas, images, notes, etc. Syncs with the Evernote desktop app. (iTunes Link)
YouVersion Bible – I start my day out with this every morning. The Bible in my iPhone. Tons of translations, interactive features, search, a MUST for me. (iTunes Link)
Dropbox – Easy file sharing between my iPhone and multiple computers. The apps are free but if you want more than 2GB of storage you’ll need to pay. SO worth it. (iTunes Link)
Facebook – Outside of Twitter, my main social networking site… I’m on the iPhone version way more than the web version. (iTunes Link)
Turns out that the only person with less luck than Spider-Man … is the poor Spider-Man impersonator.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Christopher Loomis was working Hollywood Boulevard in his Spidey suit, collecting tips from tourists by posing for pictures, when he allegedly slugged a man in the face and arms.
Once the victim refused to press charges, you’d think that would be the end of it, but Loomis was arrested when the police discovered he had outstanding misdemeanor warrants and held him in lieu of $5,500 bail.
And it turns out that it wasn’t so easy for the LAPD to find the alleged assailant, even though he was dressed in the bright red-and-blue costume. But when officers responded to a radio call reporting a battery by Spider-Man, they discovered four different people dressed as Spidey along the tourist-filled corridor that includes Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.
By the way, if you are interested in digging deeper into the world of these costumed “entertainers”, you should check out Confessions of a Superhero. It’s a great documentary that covers the lives of the people behind the costumes at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.
I checked it out on Netflix’s “Watch Instantly” feature and apparently this whole getting arrested thing happens pretty often for Superheroes there.
I gave up on Smallville a long time ago. I gave up on the fact that it would be a legit Superman origin series. I quit watching when the Clark and Lana stuff got way too much to bear, but then I came back for the arrival of the Green Arrow.
Every few episodes we got some great stuff… The Legion of Super Heroes, Martian Manhunter, etc.
This season, I’m back just to watch The Wonder Twins light up the screen. I’m a big fan of the Superfriends so my TiVo will be set.
It’s just a promo, but the message is clear; “We’re stronger when we’re together”
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (New Living Translation) 9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
If we’re in it together and we’re on God’s side, there’s nothing that can’t be accomplished. More often than not we tend to go at it alone, but when we do we find ourselves struggling to achieve the full potential that God has set us up for.
Life is a team sport and without the help and support of others, any win is empty. On the leadership side, if no one is following you, then you’re not a leader – you’re just going for a walk. Who is out there that you can team-up with? What unknown powers are waiting to be activated to do what God has set out for you to do? The adventure awaits.
I LOVED the original Clash of the Titans as a kid. Harry Hamlin, Burgess Meredith, Laurence Olivier, and a mechanical Owl.
Well, now they are remaking Clash of the Titans. I’m going to reserve judgement until I see the movie, but to be honest I’d be really into it if they just re-released the original in the theatres. (Why don’t they do that? It seems like it would be cheaper than remakes)
Anyway, here’s the teaser trailer for the new movie, and for fun here’s the original too! What do you think?
Just found this on GIZMODO. If you make a Blackberry purchase at Walmart between November 14th – 21st, Walmart will give you a brand new $100 giftcard. Pretty cool with Christmas coming up or if you wanted to buy any accessories on your phone or something. Here’s the list of eligible Crackberrys:
AT&T Curve 8310
AT&T Bold 9000
Sprint Curve 8330 (Red & Titanium colors)
T-Mobile 8520 (Black, White, and Frost)
T-Mobile Pearl 8120 (Emerald)
Verizon Storm II
The deal is valid both in stores and online (of course with the 2-year contract stuff). And remember, shop responsibly… $100 in giftcards isn’t worth getting $200-$300 in debt. Don’t be a slave to the lender (Proverbs 22:7) Especially if the lender is Walmart… (They never let you out!)
Anyway, it’s a great deal if you have the cash and you are in need of a smart phone.
