Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Email, and texting are all pretty darn awesome at staying connected with the various people in my life. Especially since every time I pick up the phone to call anyone, my kids all of a sudden decide they need to scream, cry, or just act completely insane.
It's pretty awesome to be able to post a picture out on a run!
I track my runs through Runtastic, then track my workouts onto Daily Mile through the Electric Miles app. I even have the Yoga Studio app on my phone that I use a few times a week. Plus, if my phone is with me, my music is with me! I also enjoy doing challenging through Instagram - it's a great way to keep myself motivated.
In addition to the accountability factor, I love the safety factor of having my phone with me when I'm running. For me, it's a necessary running "accessory" to take with me.
Shopping and Bills
I have an app for my auto insurance which means Ward and I always have proof of insurance with us. I am a huge fan of internet shopping - Amazon, eBay, and Groupon are three of my favorite sites. The Target Carwheel app is pretty amazing as well since I can save even more money on things I regularly buy! And I can stay up-to-date with my banking information while depositing checks into my account by using my bank's app. How cool is that?
I really don't use my regular camera anymore since my iPhone came into my life. It's so convenient to take pictures and share them on Facebook, twitter, or Instagram with only a few swipes. I even download my iPhone pics to Snapfish so I don't have thousands of pictures taking up precious memory on my phone.
With the power of technology, I was able to share Izzy's first race experience ever within minutes to all of our friends and family. This is just truly amazing.
