I use the iPhone 4S for keeping my life organised - I'm synced to the calendar and email and contacts. I listen to my music in the car - love playlists to suit my mood! I capture life around me with the camera. I've recorded some priceless moments with the video. How did I live without this before???
There are sooo many goodies you can add to your phone (thanks to my kids, who point me in the right direction and share their wealth of knowledge), so here's my handy list (which I will add to as I come across new and interesting goodies) of things which may be of use to you . . .
Camera - when using the camera indoors and the picture looks dark, double tap the screen in the dark section and the preview will lighten up. Then take the photo.
Useful Apps and Links
Camera Bag 2 - this is a fantastic little app to add frames and add moods to your photos. You can use it on your phone or your computer. Well worth a look.
Photoshop Express for iPhone - this free app is a cool tool to have on the go. It's got a variety of functions and filters to make your quick snaps just a little more special.
This is a photo that I snapped with my iPhone of a Pink Lady Apple blossom. I liked the original . . .
But I really like this for a slightly artsier look . . .
It's had the saturation bumped up a bit, a bit of soft focus and a soft edge border added. All done on the iPhone in a few swipes of the screen. You've got to love that!
Instagram - Love the square format photos. Lots of interesting filters and easy-to-use "tilt shift" (blur) option.
Diptic - Lots of options - different ratios to choose from. Make a collage of many photos. Adjust border widths & colours. Add different filters to each photo . . . easy to use and versatile.
TiltShift Generator - The tilt shift that I love in Instagram . . . only with more options!
Quick and Easy Quilt Block Tool - This application features rotary-cutting directions for over 500 options for making traditional quilt blocks, plus bonus reference tables every quilter needs.
Sudoku Lite - very handy for those times you get stuck in a waiting room somewhere without a book or a needle and thread.
ShopShop - a handy little list making app. You can save a master list and also have little "mini lists" going and cross them off as you go.
I hope this useful to you . . .
