Apps

OK, I realize that I am late to this particular party, but I finally have an iPhone.  I’ve used it for awhile and liked it, but recently my sister has introduced me to the world of applications.  That is to say, “apps.”

I now have apps to let me know the news, the weather, and sports scores.  I can listen to my favorite kinds of music.  Best of all, I have apps that use GPS data to locate everything from restaurants near me to where I parked my car.

But I know I have barely scratched the surface.  You readers, though, early adopters and savvy technophiles that you are,  know far more than I do about this kind of thing.   And maybe some of you have found an “app” that the rest of us would benefit from.

So what are some good apps?  (Not only iPhones have apps these days, so feel free to suggest those for Androids or whatever.)

    Dr. Veith, I would suggest Pulse: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pulse-news-for-iphone/id377594176?mt=8. Pulse stores all the new sites and blogs that you like, and posts new articles as they are added. It’s a one-stop shop for all you news and blog updates. Is not only convenient for avid news and blog readers, but it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye as well. Enjoy!

    Of course you need PrayNow from CPH. It’s The Treasury of Daily Prayer as an app.

    Great post! I love it. It just put a big smile on my face :)

    First, congratulations on your iPhone. You are one step ahead of us: we “only” have an iPod, which is a great tool, too, though. With the iPod we can’t make calls but we do have the apps feature as well ;)

    Some apps I really like are the ones by Ligonier, TBN (mobile), and CMI (Creation Ministry International).

    The apps to check news, emails, and the weather are great tools, too.

    I usually do not go apps shopping (at iTunes). I rather look out for apps on websites and blogs which I like.

    By the way, you might want to think about adding an RSS to your website/blog. It’s great: I write my blog entries, the RSS feed sends the information about them to my husband’s iPod which gets him to notice there are some new texts on my blogs to read ;)

    Blessings from Ireland,
    Carmen

    There is a useful (and free) App called, appropriately enough, Free Apps Finder. It pulls up a list of Apps that are newly free. Some of these Apps used to cost but have gone “on sale”, or perhaps they’re just being introduced and their managers want to get some word of mouth going. Or they’re wanting you to try the free version so that if you like it, you’ll buy the version that costs but has more bells and whistles. I’ve picked up some good Apps this way.
    Also, get one of the many Flashlight Apps- I’ve found them to be useful.
    The Dual Level App turns your iPhone into a carpenter’s level – good for hanging pictures.

    I prefer feedly over Pulse. It’s the app I use to read this and other RSS enabled sites. It works great on iPhones and androids, but also has a desktop extension for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers.

    As Carmen mentioned, the Ligonier apps are great. Particularly wonderful is the Reformation Study Bible – their daily Bible-in-a-year reading plan has been the first one I’ve ever successfully stuck with because its so well done and easy to use.

    For a reader like yourself (and I’m guessing other frequenters of this blog) its great to have an RSS reader. I personally use NewsRack on iPad and iPhone, but I’m sure the other ones mentioned are good too. But the real killer app to pair this with is Instapaper. Instapaper gives you a Read Later list that you can access via the web or iPhone. It will download this list to your iphone (or iPod Touch or iPad) and store it completely offline so you can read websites when you don’t even have an internet collection. And once you’ve read something, you can archive it – so if you read everything interesting via Instapaper, you can always go back and find that article you were thinking of.

    Lastly, I have to mention that this is what I do for my vocation – I own a boutique agency devoted to building apps for brands. And we started it all with an app that I think you’d like a lot: Advent08. It was an app for the Advent season of 2008, featuring art, prayers and devotions for each day in Advent. Even though it was customized for the number of days of Advent in 2008, it can still be used (and is) each year.

    If you don’t yet have Evernote, a cross-platform app that I call my external brain, you’re really missing out.

    I like NetNewsWire for RSS.
    HootSuite for social networks.
    Home&Work for to-do lists.
    ShopShop for shopping lists.
    Menu Planner for meal planning/recipe storage/grocery lists.
    The Weather Channel is much more useful (and accurate) than the native iPhone weather app.

    Ligonier’s free app and the Reformation Study Bible are both excellent. YouVersion is also a great Bible app– probably actually my favorite because it has so many versions in so many languages. Desiring God has a Fighter Verses app for Scripture memory that’s especially helpful.
    The entire Matthew Henry commentary is a $.99 app!
    There’s also a Christian Creeds & Reformed Confessions app that’s a useful reference tool.

    The Constitution and Declaration of Independence are both apps useful for reference.

    Instagram is good for photo sharing. Photoshop Express will let you crop and add effects to photos (though this functionality should be native in the iPhone when iOS 5 is released in September).

    ATT Scanner is AT&T’s QR code scanner, which I’ve found to be the fastest available.
    Amazon has several apps, including one called Price Check that lets you scan bar codes and find out whether Amazon has it cheaper (and see their reviews).

    Also @Carmen: This blog already has an RSS feed. :-)

    If you use Logos as your Bible software, they have a free iPhone app that lets you access many (but not all) of your Logos material. “iTalk” will let you use it as an digital audio recorder with “iTalk Sync” on your desktop to download your recording to iTunes (great for recording sermons/ lectures, as long as you remember to silence the phone itself). If you are curious about the natural world and willing to spend money on apps “Starwalk” is great for astronomy, “iBird Plus” for birding.

    The app I’d like to see again is to be able to dial and phone someone within 20 seconds, like I used to before they started putting all that junk on cell phones. Another “killer app” would be decent coverage in rural areas, and one that would be just awesome would be if the phone actually was likely to make it past a year or so of ordinary use.

    I can’t comprehend just how much I’m missing! And I really don’t know how I’d get anything else done, if I had it all!!!

    The only thing I’ve been a bit envious of is the Bible app. So o o much easier to carry the i-phone! But alas, the print is too small, (unless the ophamologist really does work wonders). I’ll wait awhile and see.

    [The print is too small in the large print BOC, too, no matter what PTM says, plus you need a cart to get it around.] :)

    Mobile usage:
    * MyAT&T (really helpful for checking your data usage, if you’re on the 200MB/month plan like I am; assuming you’re on AT&T, that is)

    Bible:

    Information:
    * Weather Channel
    * NYTimes (not view-limited like the Web site is, as far as I can tell)

    * Words with Friends (more or less Scrabble)
    * Angry Birds
    * Peggle
    * Bejeweled

    For the very young:
    * Alpha Baby (My two-year-old loves this app, but he’s really into letters and numbers. It’s frequently our enticement to do some Big Thing.)

    Not recommended:
    * Google app (has some nice functionality, but usually slower than just searching from within Safari)

    Here are a few I would recommend:

    Cardstar (stores all your grocery, airline, library, etc. card numbers and will create a bar code for your grocery and library cards. )

    Ringtones – It cost $.99 but it allows you to use your existing music to create ringtones. It is a must have if you want unique ringtones for people.

    Dropbox – Lets you access documents anywhere.

    ESV Study Bible – Very detailed notes

    HSCB Study Bible – See what the other half thinks.

    Reformation Study Bible – Sproul and company

    ESV Study Bible – Very detailed notes

    HSCB Study Bible – See what the other half thinks.

    Facebook – like a perpetual high-school reunion

    I forgot all about the Kindle App! This one allows me to read a multitude of books from Amazon on the phone. Text can be adjusted to large print for those of us with agin eyes. Text can be highlighted, and highlights are backed up on Amazon’s web site each time you start the app. Also has a built in dictionary for those hard to remmember vocabulary words. Back lighting can be changed to white letters on black background so the panel is darker (I can read in bed without disturbing my wife.).
