Submerged in Apps

Wikipanion App
"Application software, also known as an application or an "app", is computer software designed to help the user to perform specific tasks. "

Okay now that I have an iPad I am just diving into the world of apps. I've used apps before on Stephen's Droid phone. Love how useful they are. On his phone I always use the Navigation, Facebook and JogTracker apps. So I've gotten suggestions from 2 iPad owner friends on their favorite apps. I'm telling you these task helpers are awesome!!! Right away of course I installed the apps for Facebook, Netflix, Pandora, Blogger, SiriusXM, and GMail. But I want to share my new found favorite apps...

Zite App
Zite is a free personalized magazine for your iPad that automatically learns what you like and gets smarter every time you use it. Zite delivers all the great news, articles, blogs, and videos you want – and helps you discover new stuff that you'll love. It's awesome, in a way it's like your own personalized newspaper/magazine. Separates the topics you like into sections...needless to say we have a Minnesota Vikings section that brings us all the news from all of the web into a newspaper/magazine article format. Love it!

Flipboard App
My friend Heather told me about this one. Flipboard creates a single place to enjoy, browse, comment on and share all the news, photos and updates that matter to you. So I can view all the newsfeed from my Facebook as well as all the new blog posts from my family and friends all in one neat space.

Pinterest and All Recipes Apps
These 2 sites are usually where I get my recipes from, so I love the apps available for them. So easy to find what I am looking for right away.

StationsOfTheCross and Rosary Miracle Prayer Apps
These are 2 apps I've just read about and plan on installing. They will be great task helpers for our family and to do with the kids.

The kids also have been having a ball playing games, drawing and making music on the iPad. 

I swear the entertainment, learning and usefulness of these apps on our iPad seem endless. Please comment and share your favorite App!

Yay for iPads!! I don't have one yet, but my iPhone 4s is uh-mazing!

If you like word games, I recommend Words With Friends and we literally got addicted to Scramble With Friends last night.

You might also like Songify...anything you say into it will turn into a song. It's pretty funny. (Except when the Hubster does it when I'm complaining about something and he plays my annoyances back to me! lol)

The Catholic ones are interesting. I haven't come across them before but could never find anything! I do love All Recipes and Flipboard!
