What I've enjoyed lately

I finally joined the 21st century about a month and a half ago, when I procured my first smartphone. Since then, I've become an Instagram addict. Follow me for mostly pictures of my cats (yup, I'm that IG user!). I also post pictures of pretty things, my adorable niece, and my awesome hubby, among other things. I'm @abcmrs (just like on Twitter).

Other favorite apps:

  • RedBox - find movies based on release date, track down a copy at kiosk near you, reserve, apply coupon codes, and pay for your rental right from the app. I love it! 
  • YouVersion Bible - Lets me pick up right where I left off in my daily reading, and has a great verse of the day, with the option to share it on your social networks 
  • Kindle - Syncs to my actual Kindle, so I can read from my furthest-read point across all of my devices 
  • Feedly - With the demise of Google Reader, I've moved to Feedly. It's taken some getting used to, because I was a GR JUNKIE, but I really like it now. And with Feedly goes... 
  • Pocket - A tap saves items from Feedly and around the web for me to come back and read later. Accessible from my phone and laptop. 
  • Google Drive - I can access all of my Google Drive documents and spreadsheets right from my phone. Guess where my grocery list lives now? 
  • Mailbox - Honestly, the jury is still out on this one. I read all sorts of buzz about it, signed up, and eventually my number came up. I love some of the functionality, but it lacks a few things I'd love to have: a search function, to start with, and a way to apply my many gmail labels. I think my perfect mail app is a mix between gmail and mailbox. Maybe someday? 
  • Shopkick - I earn "kicks" when I walk into my favorite stores. I'll eventually be able to cash in kicks for gift cards. (note, I'll get credit if you sign up using that link!) 
  • Aviary, Snapseed, Pic Stitch & Squaready - my favorite photo apps, which I mostly use to edit for Instagram. I told you I'm an addict! 

 What apps am I missing that you can't live without?
