What's On My iPhone? | Apps For Those Moments.


I am actually at the stage where I would be lost without my iPhone. It does so much, holds so much and is such a big part of my day to day life. Either you're nodding along or in total shock by my technological dependence. These are a few nifty solutions to my not so everyday problems. You'll be happy to finally shout "I have an app for that!"


For those moments when you've got to go! 


I have lost count of the amount of times I cannot find a bathroom. Having to buy a coffee or sandwich to be granted access. It hard when you commute to work or you're on a long journey. So I recently downloaded Flush. This amazingly wonderful app uses your gps to locate the surrounding toilets. Some have ratings, it shows if they're in department stores and even if it has a fee. This app works all over the world and is constantly being updated! You may not use it everyday, but I'm telling you, you'll be dancing for joy when you finally do.

For those moments when you're feeling creative!


I'm just going to come right out and say it. I love collages. I love making seasonal collages and holiday highlights. Its kind of like digital scrapbooking. And after downloading Layout, Instagram's latest spin-off app, I am a women obsessed. You can select multiple photos from your phone and mirror them, change the size, rotate, the lot! Simply save it to your camera roll and share with whomever you want. Or not, my 'pretty things' collage is growing every day, I won't judge.

For those moments when Google isn't enough!


Hands up if your a Reddit user? Hopefully by the end of this paragraph 50% of those hands will be raised. I was never a forum kind of person, but when yahoo answers didn't provide me with the information I needed I turned to the iAlien app. This is essentially the best Reddit compatible app on the iStore. You can save tags/subreddits easily and switch between them seamlessly. If you have a question chances are so have hundreds of others. First of all, take a look at the Beauty section. Another personal favourite of mine is Today I Learned. Do some more investigating of your own and thank me later!

For those moments when you're procrastinating! 


This one's just for funzies. MyIdol, is my new ice breaker. Have you ever wondered what you would look like as a cartoon? Well now that dream is about to become a reality. Take a photo of yourself and watch the mini you come to life in a series of short films and gestures. Yes, the entire app is in Chinese but there are symbols and its easy to navigate your way through it. WARNING: this is incredibly freaky and will take up a good hour or so of your time. You will be animating your friends and favourite celebrities as soon as your own is complete, believe me.

What are your essential apps? If you download anything I've mentioned, let me know what you think in the comments below!
