    Let's talk apps...

    so DH surprised me with an iPhone 4 for Xmas, and I am having fun using my new toy, um tool.

    I'm looking for app suggestions. There's a lot to choose from!
    Weather (there doesn't appear to be a NOAA app)
    word games and puzzles
    what ever else you think is cool.

    My favorite apps:

    New York Times
    NPR News
    Pandora (free "radio" based on themes or groups or songs you choose)
    Relative Pitch (musical training)
    100 pushups (oooh, exercise)
    200 Squats (oh, no, MORE exercise!)
    Netflix (watch streaming movies on your phone for free with Netflix account)
    Free Books (all the classics, all free, and the option to read them on a black screen so no disturbance reading at night in the dark)
    Louvre (the museum, just fun. And free.)
    Patagonia (you can select sales, and even shop from the phone)
    Tesla Toy (duuuuude, this app is AAAAAWESOME!)
    Zen Timer (works great for naps as well as meditation times)

    If you have access to a Costco, I really recommend an iHome device of one sort or another. (from $30 for a simple speaker/charger, all the way up to $50 for a speaker/charger/lamp or $80 for a stero speaker/charger/etc.) I have the basic simple speaker/charger, and plug my iPod into it probably more often than I plug it into my computer. My kid loves the thing, and will use it to charge in a hurry (since it brings the iPod up to full charge faster than the computer could).

    Someone today told me she has a pedometer app, but I don't know what it is called.
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    Okay anyone who overlooks this one is really missing out !
    It's called RunKeeper. Don't let the "run" part steer you away. This app is awesome. It has settings for biking, hiking, walking, running etc. It also uses your phone's GPS to track your routes, calculates your speed/pace, distance, calorie burn, time. It has a website as well and the iphone app sends all your exercise data to the website. You can track all your data, recall your cycling route and share on Facebook etc., if you like that sort of thing.

    Okay here's the best part.... when it first came on scene, I paid $9.99 for the "PRO" version....however during the month of January the PRO version of the app is FREE FREE FREE, not for a limited trial time, not for a limited number of exercise inputs... FREE PEOPLE ! Honest, I don't work for them, I'm just in love with the app

    CT do you happen to know if this app uses up data from your data plan? If so about how much are we talking? I'm new at the iPhone thing so I'm trying to see how much data i will actually use.

    Whats wrong with wanting a decent weather app? I check NOAA five times a day usually, at least in winter.

    the built is one is really crappy.

    The Weather Channel app is alot better than the built in one. Unfortunately, Weather Underground does not have an app as far as I know. That would be great!
