My favourite iphone apps

Friday, July 29, 2011

Ever since my husband surprised me last year with an iphone, we've been inseparable (my iphone and I, that is). And I began to love it even more once I discovered the world of iphone apps, so without further ado, here are some of my faves...

1. Cartolina - I use this app all the time. It lets you send short notes to people via text or email, and the designs are gorgeous.
2. Hipstamatic - Lets you take retro style photos, and my favourite part is that it looks like an oldschool camera on your screen.

3. Instagram - I know that everyone and their dog has this app, but I must say I'm pretty attached to it as well...

4. 8 mm - Like hipstamatic but for videos. You shoot videos through the app, and decide beforehand what kind of effect you'd like. I use this app now anytime I want to take a video, it just makes everything look so much more interesting.

5. Shazam - If you want to know what a song is that's playing somewhere, shazam will tell you (almost always). Isn't that amazing? Man, the internet is magical...

6. Photoshop Express - I think I got this before I started using hipstamatic and instagram, but it does some cool things if you want to edit photos. Like this...

from this... to this...

7. CBC Radio - What can I say? I love Canada.

So tell me, what are your favourite apps?
