iPhone

If you follow me on Twitter you already know, but Friday night I went to the Apple Store and finally got my iPhone. I say finally because Jared and I both had dying BlackBerries and have been checking att.com obsessively to see when the contracts would be up. (They're not up on the same day even though we bought the phones 5 minutes apart. I have no idea why.) Anyway, mine was up first so I got the white iPhone 4 - and I'm obsessed.
Now I just need some help! I have Twitter for iPhone, I'm on Instagram (so follow me there!), but I know I need a lot more Apps :) So what do I need? What do I have to have? Help, please!

Yay! Be prepared to become horrendously addicted to your iPhone. I know you said you are already obsessed. Just wait.

Enjoy! Congrats!

Yay congrats!!! I just got one myself at the beginning of July after years and years of having a BB. I was waiting forever to get an iPhone and I'm beyond hook. Totally in love.

My faves are Instagram, Shazam, Twitter, FB, Foursquare, OpenTable, The Weather Channel, Tumblr, Gilt, Gilt City, Flixter & Fantango, Groupon, Citysearch, Pintrest and a new fave is PicFrame. It's fabulous! Oh and then I have some other ones that are more bar/restaurant apps. I use it here in NYC..your location might have them too...Urban Dady, Urbanspoon, Scoutmob, TimeOut, Yelp.

Oh, magical iPhone. I love the Kate Spade day planner app, Grubhub for speedy ordering from our favorite takeout places and Red Stamp for sending little notes!

I love Instagram! I'm not a huge App person, but I love having The Onion App and the Pinterest App

YAY! Welcome to a whole new lifestyle via iPhone. I would probably give my life for my iPhone. Ok, maybe not. :P I upgraded about a year ago from a junky BB curve to the iPhone 4 and it's like being a completely different universe. I love my phone so much I have nightmares about losing it or damaging it. This coming from someone who denied the need for anything better than by BB - until it crapped out on me. I never realized what I was missing.

Social Media: do I need mention FB? - although the app stinks IMO. Freezes up a lot! I use Hootsuite for Twitter. Not sure if Blogger has an app? But my blog is on Wordpress so I have an app that shows my stats, my comments and lets me post from my phone. SAH-WEEET! If you use Pinterest, there is an app but it freezes a lot too. (Kinda like the page, it still has a lot of bugs to work out.) I use DipTic to make collages of my photos then upload to Instagram to add a filter.

Shopping Apps: Gilt (LOVE THIS APP love the way the logo lights up and the little sound it makes, I'm weird, I know.), HauteLook, MyHabit, Groupon, LivingSocial

Entertainment: NETFLIX! I loooooove the ability to watch movies/shows on the go! Fandango and Flixter. Pandora.

Instagram is obviously awesome. Ciao cheddar had a great post about iPhone photo apps (love ps express). Of course there are also popular ones like foursquare and angry birds. The husband and friends love tiny tower but it can be addictive!
