First of all, let me say hello to my lovely new followers *waves* Hello! Thanks for following my blog, I hope you enjoy reading my ramblings!
Now then, I'm sure many of you already own one, or something very similar, but I just have to talk today about.....my new iPhone! It did take a lot of convincing of Paul that I really did want one, that I would use it and it was worth the 24 month (gulp!) contract, but he finally relented and last week my lovely, shiny black iPhone was safely in my clutches. I have to be honest and say the phone and I didn't get off to the best start together, with it taking 3 hours to get set up. Now, I'm not great with technology, that I'll happily admit, but I followed all the steps and they just took sooooo long. I persevered however and boy am I glad I did! I can read my emails, keep up to date with Twitter, Facebook, Folksy at any time of the day, wherever I am. Whilst I love my laptop, it is so great to be able to catch up on emails whilst I'm in the queue at the supermarket. I know people complain about today's culture of always being on call and available to be contacted and I can understand that, but for me, I love now being able to update Twitter or send an email whenever I like.
Whilst I know I can check emails and the internet on many phones (I certainly wobbled in my phone decision when I saw the lovely pinky-purple Blackberry!), but what really swung it for me was all of the apps that you can use on the iPhone - there are over 100,000 available to choose from. There are apps for news, education, business, weather, games,reference, music, social networking - and many many more categories! I have chosen the Cat Translator, so that I can convert Barney's miaows into English, the Ocarina (blow into the microphone and the phone becomes the instrument the ocarina), a food diary to help with my diet, a Starbucks app so that I can get my coffee fix even if I'm in a town I'm not familiar with and a few more. Some are free, some cost upwards from 59 pence. I think they're great, really useful and lots of fun.
Which apps would you recommend?
Thanks for stopping by,
PS - as I am now so contactable, you can find me on Twitter, Facebook and Folksy. Look me up!
