smart phoneWhat did I ever do with all the time I waste looking at my phone?

I can hardly keep up with the explosion of smart phone apps, can you?

I know my smart phone apps have changed my life, my access to information and time-wasting games.

I usually hear about great apps from other people so I thought I would share my list and hope that you will share your favorites with my readers.

Some of my most used apps and why include:

Pandora – You create your own radio station by inputting an artist or two and based on that a radio station is created.

Google Maps – great direction app – type your address or name of place and it gives you a map and verbal directions

Word’s with Friends – scrabble like game – you can play a random person or invite a friend.  I play my mother all the time.

Golfshot GPS – $40 app (one time) has every a detailed map for every golf course, keeps score and personal statistics

Drudge Report– All the latest breaking news – much of it is not reported in local news media

Twitter – Probably my favorite – I use it to  “follow” my favorite news sources and read the posts with titles of  interest follow me at @bhrosley

Real Clear Politics – Daily list of politically related articles pulled from a cross-section of media.
