Is it weird that I find joy in looking at other peoples iPhone just to see what apps are on their home screen? Yes? Well, I think its fun to learn about new apps an introduce others to the ones I cannot do without. Here is my must have app list plus a few more. Want more? I also have a board of my favorite tech on Pinterest “Must Use Tech”
Vine is Twitter’s newest acquisition and the hottest social media app. Vine lets your record quick 6 seconds videos to share with friends. I joined Vine right before New York Fashion Week, giving me a front row of some of the best shows (thanks Nina Garcia!). But besides fashion its fun to watch a clip from your friends at a concert or maybe even a wedding at the beach. Here are a few of my Vines. Be sure and follow me on Twitter to follow me on Vine.

I am a huge fan of Spotify! It has changed the way I listen to music. For free I can get access to (about) any song in the world, make playlist, seamless share with friends, share to my social networks, follow friends, listen to radio and even play my local tracks through Spotify. For about $10 a month I get access to any playlist “off-line” and can access all of my local music from my computer on my iPhone. ALL OF IT. Anywhere I can listen to my first Widespread Panic show or search for the newest dance craze.
One of the greatest things about Spotify is your ability to discover new music through playlist. One of my favorite apps is Tunigo. With Tunigo you can search through different playlist sorted by mood or type of music. Pick a mood and choose between playlist such as “Rainy Day”, “Sunday Drive” or “Psyched! Looking for some new music check out “American Hipster” or Tunigo Top Hits. DJ your party with “Dupstep Reloaded or “Pool Party 101”.
I have tried quite a few To-Do/Reminder apps… free ones, $.99 and even $6.00 ones (I know who buys a $6.00 app!). Well they all failed me. For some the screen was to jumbled, with little to no explanation of how to just make a list. Others were to narrow in their capabilities. Perfect for making list, but no way to remind me to do what was on the list! So I gave up and stuck to my pen and paper method. However, while perusing Tech Crunch recently, I read about Any.Do and decided to download one last to-do app…
With Any.Do you can create folders for each of your list. For example, I have Personal To- Do List and Blog To-Do List. For each task on your list you can set a reminder, share with a contact, or add a note. Within the note you can write a paragraph or add sub-tasks (THANK YOU!). Write a to-do about someone in your contacts, Any.Do gives you the shortcut to call, text or email them. You can even go hands free and add a task by voice. Want to plan your day? Change your view and see your task by category or due date. All of your completed task are saved too. Really the Any.Do team has thought of everything. You can even check your Any.Do list right from your computer with a Chrome extension. Bravo Any.Do, bravo!

I stumbled across Art Space the other day and have spent time perusing its amazing catalog.
Has anyone listened to Philip Philips debut album, pretty sure he is Dave Mathrews TWIN- no joke exact same voice. I mean even his album title “The World From This Side of The Moon“… Under the Table and Dreaming or Away From the World
