I need things to keep my brain active and off the subject of my life.
This goes mostly with IFTTT. I can set up alerts such as the Full Moon. When I get an email that is “Important” according to Gmail (be sure to teach Gmail what isn’t important).
3. iOS apps Mail/Messages/Calendar/Reminders/Safari
I nearly live in these basic iOS apps.
Mail I have set up to sync with Gmail.
Calendar syncs with Google Calendar and the calendar on my Laptop.
Same with Reminders though I do have IFTTT set up to sync it with Remember the Milk.
This is my communication method lots of time. I keep up with more friends here than I do Facebook.
If I ever go missing the cops can easily find where the last place I was.
I hate repetitive tasks, but I LOVE to keep archives. This does that and automates a few things for me.
I had been using this app quite a bit. I was addicted to my Carmel Apple Spice even though it doesn’t agree with my stomach. Apples have given me problems for years.
8. Mobile Banking app
This is how I usally check my bank account. I actually interact with my bank more this way than any other way.
I’m using this more than any other social site for promoting my iBooks.
I like this app for seeing what was going on in my life on this day for previous years.
I travel a lot and don’t know where I’m going. So I find out what’s nearby by using the search embeded in Waze. Plus they know traffic because of the real time traffic updates from other users in the area.
I love to read. However, moving with a large library every 3 to 6 months is prohibitive. So I have a Kindle, a Kindle app on my phone and a Kindle app on my iPad. I have my whole library down to about 3 lbs. A lot easier to pack up and move.
