With our smart phones attached to our fingers 24/7, the homescreen is a pretty essential place of importance. Here is mine and I may do multiple posts for this as it very well may change if an app comes out that could replace one of these above. Here's a run down of my favorite apps and why I use them:
GroupMe: GroupMe has really evolved since I last used it, which was about a year ago. Perfect for connecting with family or specific groups of friends and just sending one message out to everyone. Very handy app.
Fantastical: Amazing. Let me say this again... A-MAZ-ING! Gorgeous app with a great user experience. Simply type in what you need to schedule and it's added to your calendar. I'm serious. You can type in "Get a haircut next Tuesday at 3 p.m. at 'location' and BAM! Fantastical adds it to your calendar. Love it.
Google Maps: We all know, Apple's Maps app was not the best. Google's is just what we all wanted. :)
Vine: Vine has been out for a few days now and I'm already hooked. Still getting used to the 6 second video but I have some ideas ;)
Instagram: Hard to find someone that has not heard of Instagram. My favorite camera app.
Cheddar: Tasks made simple. This is a great app to keep up with your tasks. I primarily use it for big projects I am working on. What's amazing about it is that it syncs over-the-air with my other devices. If I add something via my iPhone it's automatically syncs with my iPad and iMac.
Clear: I am a fan of Clear as well which also manages tasks. I use this if I am working on group projects. Very cool, retro UI.
iTC Mobile: As an app developer I need to keep up with my apps and this is the app to do it!
Path: I think Path is going to make some impressive improvements this year. I wish more of my close friends are on it but I'm giving it time. Great app with a great design.
Twitter: My favorite social network!
Facebook: The whole world is pretty much on Facebook now. I use it to keep up with my friends and family.
Foursquare: Still love Foursquare and I still check-in to my favorite places!
Gmail: The newest Gmail app by Google is incredible. Great UX/UI.
Pandora: I don't keep much music on my device so I stream it all through Pandora.
