There are so many cool apps available these days.  I thought I’d review some of my favorites.  If you know of any that you are particularly fond of, please feel free to comment and let me know what they are.  Here are eight apps that I have on my iPhone.   I will be reviewing others in the future, but for today, here is a brief overview of some of the ones that I enjoy using.

Since I am so busy, it can sometimes be difficult to find the time during the day to make art….However, I *must* make art regardless, so I use the Little Moments app each day to participate in the Photo-a-Day challenge, and I’m so glad that I do.


This app is a great  little photo app that supports the hashtag #fmsphotoaday. Users are able to utilize fun fonts, graphics and filters to embellish their images.  The filters make for gorgeous editing options and you can find inspiration and unique art on the prompts feature.



I begin each day with the Rosetta Stone Fit Brains Trainer and really love it.  Fit Brains games are not only extremely fun to play, but they help improve your brain health as well. Train your brain with 24 brain games & over 360 workout sessions designed to target Memory, Processing Speed, Concentration, Problem Solving, and Visual-Spatial skills.  Good stuff!  I also use Peak, which is a similar app.


Uber is phenomenal!  For those of you unfamiliar with it, it is an independent network of cabs that are cheaper and better than any corporate cab service.   I use the app frequently when I travel and love it far more than taking a cab. Saves big bucks!   Click the link and read about it, if you’re not familiar with it.  It is the greatest!

If you’re a design enthusiast, as I am, you might enjoy HOUZZ, an app for interior and exterior design inspiration.  This is a new app for me so I’ve not yet discovered its quirks, but so far, I really enjoy using it.  Lots of good ideas there….sort of like Pinterest…but not.


Whether you are a singer, a public speaker or someone that would simply like to strengthen your voice, I highly recommend the SingTrue app.


This is a great little app that has some easy-to-use vocal exercises.  It is for all ages and all levels of vocal prowess.  I use it every day.  There is no better way to improve your musical ear and develop your musical talent than through learning to use your own voice properly.  SingTrue provides a simple way to do that, and it is a lot of fun to use.


I’m sure there are a lot of cool radio apps out there, but they would have to be pretty good to beat Tunein Radio.  This is one of my all-time favorite apps that I enjoy along with Pandora and Spotify.  I use Tunein to listen to my favorite Dinner Party Download program and some other great talk radio shows.  Easy to use, high quality app.  I recommend it.


I have always had difficulty with and a distaste for all things math.  Why then, do I recommend Khan Academy‘s app?  Well, I believing in facing one’s dragons head-on….so I work on math every day with this app.  It teaches math, chemistry, art history….all kinds of subjects that I am determined not to allow to get the best of me.  🙂   It’s really a good app.  Very informative.
