Week 3: Favorite Apps

I may or may not be slightly obsessed *sigh* with apps. Gasp. I know, I know, scandalous. Here are my top 5 (with added commentary and praise and amazingness and — let me just get to it) :

1)Tumblr: TUMBLR. Where have you been all my life? In tumblr you get to choose whose blogs you follow, and all of their posts appear on your dashboard: an endless stream of posts. There are over a million different blogs, all with different topics! Some are hilarious, some motivational, some serious, and some sad. Tumblr is good for any situation, but no chance, no way; I won’t say I’m in love.

2) iFunny: Número dos. iFunny. Well, the name is pretty self-explanatory but it’s just this massive app filled with funny posts. You can post, you can subscribe to people you like, and there is a featured set everyday at 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM. There’s also a collective set, where everything is, and similarly a popular set: with posts that have a lot of likes. iFunny can get you laughing out loud in no time.

3) Pinterest: Pinterest is like a big a bulletin board. As you scroll down your home screen — where all the board’s and people’s pins you’re following shows up — you see pins: little sticky note type of things. As you click on one particular pin, the picture enlarges, and you have the choice to like it, share it, comment on it, or repin it. You can creat multiple boards, where you post pins with a certain category in. For example, a board could be called “Books” and every pin that you repin that you put under the category books shows up. When you repin, you have the option of which board that pin goes in. You can follow just one of a user’s boards, or the entire user, so all of their boards. Pinterest is a great way to procrastinate.

4) Pandora: Pandora is love. Pandora is life. Pandora is music. Pandora is everything. I use Pandora for anything and everything. You can make radio stations based on an artist or a song. Pandora gives you the perfect range of new and old music. You can like a song, and Pandora will play that song again and more songs like it; you can put a song on the shelf if you are tired of hearing the song but still like it; or you can dislike a song, and Pandora won’t play that song again or songs like it. Pandora is great for homework.

5) Messages: Messages are a great way to talk to your friends. Without having to face the fear of actually talking on the phone, you can just text them and BABOOSHKA. It’s done. On Messages, you can put read receipts on, which tells the person you’re texting when you saw the text, and you can see when the person is typing. You can have group messages with as many people as you want, and with emojis that express feelings that I’ve never felt before, Messages is the perfect package.

Those are my five favorite apps, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Wow. I guess that since I could say that much about apps, I guess I am classified as — gasp — obsessed.

  1. This was really good! I love how you managed to find a way to make this funny and interesting while still describing your favorite apps. And you also gave me great advice on which apps I should get! You are really good at showing your emotions too, instead of it being a tone-less mood-less feeling-less paper. Good Job! I’m excited to read more of your posts.

  2. Love this post, you have made it interesting and filled with your voice- my students love to listen to Pandora. Look forward to reading more from you! Mrs. Emerick

  3. I really enjoyed reading that! I love how you quoted Meg from Hercules “no chance, no way, I won’t say I’m in love”. You added such amazing voice and I, as your friend, could totally imagine you saying all of that.

  4. I really love your first few sentences, “I may or may not be slightly obsessed *sigh* with apps. Gasp. I know, I know, scandalous.” The humor and voice added in this post makes something that could be boring, to something people like me are dying to read! My favorite apps are Tumblr, Instagram, and Play Tube, another great app for homework! Keep up the good work!

  5. I loved this post. You added so much voice into it that it made me feel like you were telling me this in person. Also you elaborated on each topic with examples of why you like that app. Great job! By the way I love Pandora too.
