I had so much fun. It was one of those nights that was completely energizing (something I don’t take for granted in this season of Christmas parties and holiday hoopla). It was one of those nights when I reconnected with how much I love interacting with new and interesting people in a small group setting (not at cocktail party setting, that kinda freaks me out).
We talked blogging. We talked steaming techniques (I’ll note the girls at the table had not-a-thing to contribute to this conversation). We talked books. We talked Glee. We talked Pioneer Woman. We talked Cross Point.
And of course, we talked iphone apps. I can honestly say I had NO IDEA there are so many helpful, entertaining, and utterly absurd iphone apps out there.
Here are just a handful of the group favorites:
TripIt - Online travel itinerary. Keeps all your plans (plane, rental car, and hotel reservations) in one spot. Added bonus TripIt let’s your friends and colleagues keep track of your jet-setting.
AroundMe - Everything you need to know about your surroundings. Do you ever wonder what is right around the corner? Where the closest Starbucks is? Where you can get gas before you hit empty? AroundMe has all the answers.
Words with Friends – Play scrabble with friends across the world. Or if you are like me, let all your twitter buddies know how small your vocabulary is. Trust me Words with Friends is fun, but be warned it is also addictive.
Dragon Dictation – Voice to text transcription that is stunningly accurate. I was skeptical but it was 100% accurate on my both my trial runs. I’m never going to drive and text again. I’m going to drive and dictate from now on using Dragon Dictation.
Literally I gasped as I learned about all the cool things I had been missing out on.
So….I imagine there are more apps completely not on my radar. Give it up. What are your favorite iphone apps?
