Thing 4

I have a springboard app which I believe is very similar to the flipboard app. It sounds wonderful but I have yet to actually do a lot with it, so I decided that for this thing, I would download Zite. I played around with it and I could see it getting very addicting but I also feel like its just another variation of Pinterest or Twitter. You put in everything you like and they create a world of all your favorite things. I even noticed that a lot of the things that are on my Pinterest feed came up on my Zite  feed.

Thing 3

I have had many different barcode scanners over the years and I think that they are a fun novelty at first but soon end up being uninstalled for lack of use. The one barcode scanner that I probably used the longest was Calorie Counter by myfitnesspal. It was pretty cool to be able to scan anything prepackaged that you were going to eat and see all the nutrition facts. It also allows you to keep a food diary that way but since I don't count calories and now avoid all packaged food, this too got quickly uninstalled.

I put Google Googles in the same category as the barcode scanner, a fun novelty but not something that you are actually going to use on a regular basis.

Google search is pretty basic and useful but I'm more of a Bing girl.

I could see stand app being useful but I spend most of my day on my feet, so its just not a good fit for me.

I have used my phone as my alarm clock for probably the last 15 years, so i decided to download this app and give it a try. I will update on how it goes shortly.

WiFi finder is a good idea but I don't have a lot of use for it. I'm almost always at home or at work and the few moments that I'm not in those places, I'm running in and out of the grocery store. I just don't have time to go to the local coffee shop and play on my tablet. Lol

Thing 2

Well I found a couple forums on my device and even found out why my device occasionally makes a popping sound. I knew that things like that were out there but without this program I probably wouldn't have looked into it.

Thing 1

I'm so excited to be starting a new "23 things"! I really enjoyed the previous two and am looking forward to learning new things this time around. :)
