I am amazed by just how much the iPhone has revolutionized my life. I use it to read my email, follow directions, find the highest rated restaurants, keep up with my favorite blogs and play games while I’m waiting at the doctor’s office.
I’ve become hooked on iPhone apps the minute I found out that I was pregnant with Baby A. I installed the What to Expect app, which told me how the typical baby grows from week to week and what size it is along the way. I’d wake up every Friday to tell my husband, he’s the size of a blueberry, a raspberry, a pineapple or a melon.
The day Baby A made his way into this world I started using apps that helped me track his feeding and sleeping trends. To this day I still use the Total Baby app on a daily basis. It helps me see that he is sleeping for longer periods of time each night. It may only increase by ten or fifteen minutes a week, but it’s unbelievably important to feel reassured when you are in the midst of sleeplessness night after night.
I love my iPhone apps. In fact, I love them so much that I drafted a blog post a long time ago, (that is yet to be finished), listing all of the apps I use on a daily basis.
Friends are constantly telling me to download this app or that app, but I often forget or find that the apps they’ve selected aren’t quite right for me. Well today I came across the perfect solution for finding apps that will help organize and add value to my life. I found appSmitten.
According to the founders of appSmitten:
There are hundreds of apps released each day. Most of them aren’t worth your time. We sort through all of the clutter to find the iPhone, Android and iPad apps that add the most value to your life.
Editorially independent, we choose which apps to recommend because we like them — not because we are being paid to promote them. We keep you updated through our newsletter, which is delivered to your inbox daily…or weekly. If you’re not a subscriber already, you’ll want to sign up here.
I haven’t received any newsletters yet, but I did sign up today. If you own an iPhone, iPad or Android I highly suggest checking out the appSmitten website. The good news is that you can request weekly emails, which means you won’t be inundated with emails every day if you don’t want to be.
In full disclosure I will let you know that I receive compensation for each person that signs up through my affiliate link. (So please, please, please sign up :-)) If you’re even the slightest bit interested in this I encourage you to check it out. Sign ups are free!
