Friday Fives: Apps to Apps



It's Friday at last and I've done some major 'stuff' today, which means I've been out doing errands and saving the world, so I've come to wind down from all that doing that I've done. Thankfully, Paper Hangover has a great prompt today.

Top Five Apps? I really hate choosing, but since I'm an app freak, I have a whole litany to pick from. Here are five:

1. Fruit Ninja
Best. App. For. Phone. Ever. Amen.

2. Google Calendar
I seriously would not be able to survive without this. You can color code your appointments, classes, jobs, writing time, etc and you have the option for Google to e-mail you every morning with your day's itinerary. I LOVE IT.

3. Shazaam
I have this problem where I'm a musicaholic and if I hear a song, I like it, but no one within a mile radius can tell me what it is, I have this nifty little app to do the work for me. It's saved me from a bunch of headaches. Obsessive behavior 0: Shazaam 1

4. Symbaloo
It's the penultimate homepage for the OCD person inside of you. Little squares, pretty colors, all arranged how you like them. All your favorite destinations in one place.

5. Words with Friends
I was so addicted to this scrabblelicious game a while ago that I didn't let my phone out of my sight for fear that someone would play a word and I wouldn't hear it. I've slacked off lately though, but if any of you have this app and feel up to challenging me, I'm more than willing to fight with words with you. (I'm Baywolf25.)

What are some of y'all's favorite apps? Are they as awesome as mine?

  1. I forgot about Google Calendar. Hubby and I just started using it recently, but it's so helpful to keep up with everything.

  2. I wasn't even exaggerating when I said I wouldn't be able to survive without it. Actually, Google as a whole pretty much makes my life easier.

  3. I <3 Shazaam!!! I can't believe I forgot this one...such a cool technology for sure!

    And I don't have Fruit Ninja on my phone, but I'm going there right now!

    Great list, Bailey!

  5. @Erin I'm so glad someone else likes Shazaam!

    And y'all both should definitely try Fruit Ninja. I actually played it for 15 minutes before getting out of bed this morning. Haha!

  6. Hmm. Fruit ninja just sounds intriguing.

    And I do love Google. I haven't fully immersed myself in everything it has to offer, but I will. And then they'll come out with something new.

    Have a great weekend!
