My Top 5 iPhone Apps

I’ll admit, when the iPhone first came out I thought it was the stupidest thing in the world. I laughed at my husband for wanting one and said I’d never get one. I was happy with my little iPod Touch and flip phone.

Fast forward to today where I’ve owned every iPhone to come out since the 3G (that’s four different phones in about as many years). It was hard for me to narrow things down to five when I have over one hundred and thirty actually on my phone.

Here in no particular order…


Pandora has become a favorite of mine especially in the car. I had XM radio for a while but got sick of hearing the same songs over and over. Solution? Ditch the XM, save myself a few bucks a month and listen to what I like.

Whether I’m in a Dave Matthews mood or a Florence and the Machine mood I can play a station that makes me happy and I rarely hear the same song twice.

Grocery IQ

My Life In Mommyland

This is the perfect app for me! It took a little while to get it set up with my favorite store but now it’s absolutely priceless. I’ve always been a grocery list maker, I blame it on my mother who is also a grocery list maker. I don’t want to forget anything I need and it helps me keep my impulse buys down since I try to only buy what’s on my list. Grocery IQ lets me make my list quickly and then it organizes it in the order I shop my store. As I do my shopping I simply check off each item and nothing is forgotten.

The other thing I LOVE about Grocery IQ is that you can print coupons from it or (if your store participates) you can add coupons right to your saving club card.

Who Is Hot

Knowing if a storm is headed our way is important and I use Who Is Hot to keep track of the weather. You can also see what the weather is like where any of your friends are, but I just use it for me.

It uses the location service to show you exactly what’s coming your way on the (animated) radar. Who Is Hot also gives you current weather conditions, forecasts and warnings. Where ever I travel, this app keeps me up to date with the weather so I never get caught off guard when a storm hits.


I’ve been wearing a Fitbit for over a year now and I love it just as much today as the day I bought it.

Using the Fitbit has helped me keep tabs of how active I am, what I eat, drink, and motivates me to step it up when I need to. It’s a great tool for anyone trying to lose weight and anyone trying to lead a more healthy lifestyle.

The Fitbit app helps me monitor my day when I’m not around my computer. I can enter my meals and water on the fly. Should I actually get out to the gym for some exercise I can enter my workout right on the app so I don’t forget. The Fitbit and it’s app have helped me take my quest for a healthier lifestyle to the next level.

Bank of America

I realize that not everyone is going to bank at Bank of America and if you don’t you should still check to see if your bank has a similar app.

I chose this app as one of my top five favorites because of all of the convenient features. When I travel I can easily find banking centers and/or ATM’s so I can save on fees while I’m away. Also to help me avoid fees the apps will send a notification to my home screen if an account balance gets a little low, or when our direct deposits are deposited.

With the Bank of America app I can also find deals in my area that will help save me some money and all I have to do is shop at the stores listed and I’ll be credited for the deals.

But my favorite feature in this app is the deposit feature. I can simply take a photo of my check right in the app, enter some other info and the check is automatically deposited into my account. Even that saves me money when I don’t have to drive the twenty minutes to my bank.

These are all amazing apps that help me be more productive and the best part…they’re all FREE.

So there are some of my favorite apps, what are yours?
