What are your favorite Apps?

Monday, April 5, 2010

Having an iPhone makes my crazy life a little more manageable. I'm photographing, emailing, buying, mapping, blogging and tweeting on the run.

It is fun to read articles about the best apps, and I liked this one from House Beautiful about the best apps for a decorator. Here are some of their picks:

Ben Color Capture is a free app that matches a color in an image or one of your own photos to a Benjamin Moore paint color. It can show you the whole paint strip or even give you some complimentary colors.

ColorChange uses your photo to "paint" the walls, floors, ceiling, or trim any color you can imagine. ($2.99)

House Plant 411 is an encyclopedia of plants with dozens of care instructions, tips, and remedies. You can even email a photo of your plant for a private response. I have the most serious black thumb, so this one is definitely on my list. ($4.99)

iHandy Carpenter is a level, a touch-sensitive protractor and a ruler. Perfect for plotting gallery walls or measuring a fabric repeat on the go. ($1.99)

You know about Pandora, I'm sure. It's awesome and makes a long day of running errands in the car fun for me and the girls. (Free)

Do you use mint.com for your financial tracking? We do and we love it. It is really helpful and seriously, an amazing tool for keeping tabs on all your accounts. The app is free.

RedLaser is like your own personal price checker. Don't you hate it when you find something at Target (where it almost always happens for me) and the price sign is no where in sight? You can use your phone to scan the bar code and get the price! It also tells you the price of the same item at other stores! So cool, right? ($1.99)
CraigsPro+ is really amazing. Easy to use and includes a picture previewer. LOVE this one - the eBay app? Not so much. ($0.99)
