I love my iPhone, as I'm pretty sure I've mentioned. I enjoy being able to read my book on the Kindle app. I enjoy being able to pull up people on the IMDB app at any time, for example, today at lunch, Jennifer and I were discussing who is in the movie I'm going to go see this evening, and I was listing the people, but I couldn't remember the name of the guy or the series that he stars in. I could only remember that my niece Natalie thinks he has creepy eyes. (And if she's reading this, she knows who I'm talking about!) (And if she isn't reading this, WHY ISN'T SHE READING THIS!??) So I whipped out my phone and looked him up, right there at the table!
I love not having to carry my Bible to church because I can just get my phone out and read the passage from the app! I love being able to play solitaire or mahjong or whatever bit of mindless fun I'm currently addicted to whenever I have to wait for something or someone.
Yesterday, I was having a discussion with some of the girls with whom I'm going to the movies this evening. One of them was going last night to buy our tickets. I asked if she had a Stubz card and from her response of "Huh?" knew that she did not, so I gave her my card so Rose could get the points! The other girl mentions that she has an app that keeps track of all of her cards, and when she's at the store, the sales clerk just scans her phone or, if that doesn't work, keys in the numbers. I am THERE!!
I'm forever going to the grocery store (IGA/Buy-Low) and forgetting my card. The sales person always dutifully says, "Keep your receipt and bring it in with your card and you can get credit for the purchase." To which I politely respond, "yeah, thanks" when in fact I want to scream, ahem.. "IF I WAS ABLE TO REMEMBER TO DO THAT, I'D HAVE REMEMBERED THE FREAKIN' CARD TODAY!!!" Or sometimes, I'll run into CVS with only my keys and wallet. What's the problem with that?, you ask. Well, I have so many of those cards, I keep them on a totally separate key ring, so when I say I only have my keys with me, I only have my KEYS. Sigh.
Last night, I downloaded that puppy (keyringapp.com) and quick like a bunny scanned and entered my cards. And now, I can't wait to go to the movie tonight so they can scan my card/phone when I get my popcorn! Yeah!
Anyway, that's my app recommendation of the week… or whatever time period will be between now and the next app I recommend.
