What’s your ‘can’t live without’ App….

I’m not of those people who is always playing on their phone.  Honest 😉

But I did realise today when I went to work without my phone that I do feel a little lost when I don’t have my phone with me.

Without my phone, I couldn’t check how well my things were selling on eBay and I couldn’t check and see if a payment I was expecting to my Paypal account had been made.  I couldn’t check the next train home and I couldn’t Youtube a video that I’d been telling my friends about (this one).  I couldn’t see what everyone was up to on Facebook and I missed a fantastic Instagram photo opportunity because I didn’t have my phone camera.

(I know I could have done all this the old fashioned way but you get my point – it’s so much better having information on tap on your phone, isn’t it?)

So, my traumatic phone-less day inspired me to write a post about my favourite App which is definitely Instagram (or Twitter) (or maybe Facebook)…. When I was checking my phone though I found an App that I downloaded ages ago and never really got around to using – Vine.

You all probably know about it already but just in case you don’t – it’s a little bit like Instagram but you take videos rather than photos. The videos are nine seconds long and you don’t have to film continuously for that time – so you can be really creative with your nine seconds…. Or, you could just film your loopy dog like we did for our first video!

It’s really easy to embed into a blog post (I downloaded a plug in that does everything) and the video just runs on a loop without anyone having to press play to start it off.

I think this *may* be my new favourite App!

Now my problem is that if I’ve only just discovered Vine, what else am I missing?  So I need you to tell me your favourite Apps so I can go and download them all and make sure I’m not missing out on any other brilliant Apps.

Over to you….


I'm sunburnt and I need your help....
Can money buy you happiness....

    I just upgraded to a Windows phone, everything links via my Windows ID and I upload to Twitter, Facebook, Linkdin etc as I fancy. I haven't carried a camera in years!

    Oooh hubs has been telling me I need Vine and I've been resisting. I just caved. I love Camera + There's so much more you can do with an image – I honestly never need to get my SLR out these days

    I think Instagram would probably be mine although I have just downloaded the Bloglovin app which makes reading all my favourite blogs a lot easier

    I need to investigate this!! Have heard a lot about Vine but never used it. Looks fabulous.

    I can't live without Ubersocial which is my Twitter app on my BlackBerry. 70% of my tweets are sent using it. I love it. So simple but brilliant.

    But off to investigate this!

      I completely understand although I do love my phone now, I went for years without being bothered at all by them and it used to drive me mad when people used to be constantly fiddling with theirs!
