iPod Touch: Make My Life More Fun!

I have recently received a most fabulous gift. An iPod Touch!! Today I’m going to continue this series with some of the apps have made it into permanent rotation on my device after a few months of using it. Today’s areas of focus are………

Sometimes I Hate Math

Sale Price – With this app I can figure out what’s the price of an item that was 40% off and then another 50% off the first sale price. LOVELY!

CheckPlease Lite – I can split the check 4 ways and figure out tip. Then have the amount go straight into Pocket Money (my checkbook program). I have only used this a few times but I really like the concept.

 

Fun Stuff

Geosphere (paid) – I am a geocacher. I was looking for an app that would let me carry all my cache information with me. Also I wanted to log my caches and upload them when I got back to an area with wifi. Geosphere lets me to both. Plus the app just looks really slick.

Flashlight – I have actually used this one! It’s literally just a white screen. Works great!

Splat! – Swatting flies by rocking the iTouch forward. Even my 5 year old niece likes this one.

iDork Lite – Draw lines on the screen to get your stick dude to move to the hole in the paper but be careful of falling pencils or you’ll just be a bloody splat on the page!

SnapWords – Each team gets a turn to get their members to say a set of words before time runs out. After 3 or 4 words you get a difficult word. Difficult words often prompt, “uhhhhhhhhh” and then some creative thinking! This one is great for long car rides with older kids or adults.

WordFlipper – Use the letters to make as many long words as possible before time runs out.  I love this kind of game!
