This week's Top Ten Tuesday is dedicated to my friend, who just bought an iPod touch. She wants to know which apps to get, so here goes:
10) Siddur- there are a number of em on the app store, but the siddur app from Rusty Brick, while not cheap, is excellent. You can chose from any nusach, including some I never heard of. The tefillos are very clear and organized, and it is calendar sensitive, i.e. It will automatically include yaaleh veyavo on rosh chodesh. And hey, it even has shabbos and yom tov davening!
Nah, I tricked you. Haha!
9) Cuberunner Lite- I. Love. This. Game. Firstly, it's free, so IMO nobody is entitled to complain, but this game is just plain awesome. What I love about it is the simplicity. No complicated graphics or controls; it's just you and your accelerometer.
8) IM+ - I have a love hate relationship with this app. I always forget to sign myself out, then I have people mad at me for ignoring them, but in general, it's excellent for making sure you are more connected than bubby ever thought possible.
7) Dictionary- I'd venture a guess that the app store has a bunch of these, but I use the one from dictionary.com. One app has the dictionary and theasaurus, plus no wifi connection is required for basic functions.
6) Flood-It- This game is great for mindless playing. Unlike accelerometer games, which you can't use in a crowded waiting room, this game is totally non obtrusive. It also doesn't need too much concentration, which makes it ideal for boring phone conversations. Er, I shouldn't admit to that, should I?
5) Unblock Me Lite- Rush hour minus the complex graphics. Fun, and more importantly, free.
4) Calorie Check- in case anyone was wonderig why a person like me, who needs to have accurate carb-counts for food, doesn't have a carb counting book in my (duffel) bag. This handy app is the reason. Without a wifi connection, the user can get calorie, fat and carbohydrate information and a whole ton of foods.
3) Easy Relax- I don't rememer if this was free for a limited time only, or it's always free, but it's pretty cool. Think, free customizable sound machine. [super fast voice]iPhone or iPod touch not included. Some restrictions may apply. See app store for details.[/super fast voice]
2) Face Melter- this is one of the few apps I actually shelled out my hard earned cash for, but it was worth every penny. Call me cruel, but there is nothing quite as satisfying as puffing up MP's cheeks and distorting her Perfect bump. :-D
1) Blogwriter Lite- this, my friends, is the reason BOSD is still in existance. It's the entire secret behind my blog. Nobody seems to believe me, but 99 percent of posts get typed up right here in this very app. In fact, I live in total fear of my iPod getting lost, simply because I have about 50 or 60 different blog posts in varying degrees of incompleteness, stored nowhere but Blogwriter Lite.
Which apps do you use?
