3 Must Get iPhone Apps

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

Sometimes I like to daydream about what it would be like to live at the turn of the century. In these daydreams I often picture myself as the gatherer. Searching the land for anything useful for me to use. This daydream last about 5 minutes until I realize how terrible it would be to not have electricity and I am quickly snapped back to reality. But the present reality I face today is that I am still a gatherer.

Anything and everything I can get my hands on that interest me I like to gather and share. One such area of interest is iPhone apps. Today I have 3 apps that I have gathered and now want to share with you. I think they are all pretty awesome.

1. Setlist

This app has quickly become one of my favorite apps to check daily. Using your Rdio account, Setlist searches your collection of artist and bands and finds concerts in your area. In the past two weeks I have discovered concerts that I would love to go to and did not know they were coming to town. Concerts like the Lumineers and Paper Route.
Note: must have Rdio account to use this app. But if you do not have an Rdio account you need to go and get it now. Found out why here

App Cost: Free

2. Day One

Do not let the price on this app fool you, it is well worth the $4.99. You might be wondering why you would want to pay so much for a journal app? Let me explain why. I have been living with this app for about a week now and I have really gotten into documenting my days, events, and moments. What I enjoy about this app is the ability to use photos, moments, GPS, and good ole fashion words. Some of my plans for this app is to have a documented online journey. The ability to take your days, months or even years and share them online, through email or print is a big selling point for me.

If you are looking for an app that does a great job of capturing moments and has a great interface then stop your search. Day One is the app for you.

App cost: $4.99

3. Matching With Friends

From the folks that brought you words with friends and scramble with friends comes another addicting game, matching with friends. This game is a fun 5 minute time waster. Matching blocks and colors seems to be a bit pre-schoolish, but in fact is challenging to get a better score then your opponent (I’m looking at you Benji Zimmerman). This is an easy must download, mainly so that I can beat you and get more coins. Find me online by searching the name Kyle Reed or Johnny Unite Us.

App cost: free (with ads) $1.99 (no ads)

These are my apps that I have gathered for you over the last week. Feel free to share your app gathering stories with me and the community.


Speaking of iPhone. I created a background for your iPhone of an August calendar. Download here for free.

    I’ve been experimenting a lot with iPhone photography and apps lately. I love Photoshop Express. It gives you lots of options for cropping and editing your photos. It can be particularly useful for fixing the colour balance or brightness of your photos if the lighting was bad and/or you are using an earlier iPhone with a not particularly great camera. The app with most features enabled is free but there is a few add on packs with borders and filters you can buy for it. 

    I also love DipTic. It allows you to easily make collages of your photos using lots of layout options. You can easily export your creations directly into instagram to edit further. It costs $0.99 for the app (plus another $0.99 to get access to some extra layout options) but is totally worth it.
