My Favorite iPad Apps

I wasn't going to post today....but my last post was number 6.6.6 so....I can't let that hang out there like that and invite the devil in. are not welcome on my blog.

Today I'm going to tell you about my favorite iPad applications.  My friend Jessica just got a new iPad and I haven't had time to really tell her what apps are the best.  I blame Sanjay for this.

Also..over there on the right...the BlogHer people are giving away Newman's Own Pizza prize packs.  


I'm sure you already have a Netflix account so this one is a no brainer.  There are many movies and TV shows available to watch on your iPad.  This will also come in handy when Ryan is older and likes to watch movies.  My kids are addicted to Veggie Tales on the iPad right now....


As a new Mom...I know you watch a lot some TV since it's harder to leave the house with a baby.  If you are a fan of Grey's Anatomy, Bachelor Pad, Desperate Housewives and Castle...this will become your new favorite.  You will never miss your ABC shows again.  I'm about to start watching All My Children because I need more Afternoon Delight in my life.

Twitter for iPad...

I know you don't tweet...but I think you should reconsider. Twitter is a great way to keep up on current events and breaking news...and I sometimes tweet after I've taken a sleeping pill and I'm told it's kind of entertaining.


I love to read and iBook is my favorite app for buying and reading books. It has a built in dictionary for all of the hard words that I don't know and you can highlight passages to refer to later.


This is one of my favorite apps of all time. Because I love to research stuff and I come across lots of great websites that I'd either like to refer back to later or I don't have time to read right that minute. This app will save websites and make it so you can read the pages later on your iPad.


This is the app you want for reading blogs from your reader.


I know you like to cook and this is a great app for finding recipes.  It shows the ingredients and directions side by side so you can take your iPad into the kitchen with you.  I love that you can email a copy of the recipe to yourself or your friends.


I love to plan trips and check on fares to cities I'll never visit.  LOL!  Someday....


I love magazines and some of my favorites are available for subscription.  The only downside is that I can't tear out the pages of stuff I like but instead I make nots on my NOTES app.


I love to keep a journal, as you know.  I love this one but I need to make time to write in it.

Angry Birds...

I love Angry Birds.  I stayed up many a night past my bedtime playing this game and Alex is excellent at this one.  Often times when I get stuck...he kills the piggies for me.

Words with Friends

I had never played scrabble before so this app was challenging but addicting! Invite me to play a user name is ConnieWeiss.


Yes...there is a GLEE app.  Do you want to be on the show?  Now you can...just sing into the app alone, with friends or with the cast and it makes you sound amazing!


  1. Oh my gosh - a Glee app?? I must check this out for my ipod!!

    I am stuck on Angry Birds. It's fun but occasionally I can't get past a level. I am stuck right now but have a long car ride ahead of me so maybe I'll figure it out. :)

  2. Teri...I bet Hannah can get past that level for you. :)

    Amanda...GET ONE!!

  3. Sounds very cool. Now if I just had an ipad.

  4. Get thee behind me, Blogger Devil!!!

    I love the list of Apps. I had NO idea tere was a Glee app. How can I call myself a Gleek after this? Alas!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Thank you soooooo much for posting this!

    C already downloaded angry birds base on your post.

    And, lets be honest, i'll probably download the others you suggested since I secretly want to be you.


  6. I SO want an iPad... not in the budget right now, but we are saving for one. Maybe Santa will get me one since I have been such a good girl this year. :-)
    The Epicurious app sounds really good to me.


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
