It’s official. The iPhone has become a large part of our lives and, for many of us, we cannot think of life without it. There are many popular applications that have received a lot of media attention, but there are also those that quietly sit in a segment of our iPhone springboard that become an absolute necessity at the best of times.
In today’s post I will be looking at 25 “Unusual and Inspiring” uses for your iPhone – ranging from health to remote controls for just about anything! Please feel free to discuss apps that you too find unique in the comments below. Now on to the list…
Parking is usually a nightmare these days with the stress of remembering the time you have left on your meter, where you left your car, and what floor it is on in a multi-story car park. Well, now you can relax! AutoPark is here to save the day and aid in all those areas.
Created by Frolicware, AutoPark is designed to save you from receiving pesky, unwanted parking tickets. It has GPS, timers, and push notifications built-in to assist you in the whole parking process.
Sahil Lavingia has created an application called Dayta (in a week!) that allows you to track almost anything! The app gives you the freedom to choose the unit of measurement for your data log, leading to an almost endless variety of potential uses for the app.
Dayta is a unique application to the App Store because it doesn’t focus on tracking just one item. The only limit to what you can track is your imagination. Participants in the test group tracked data such as days absent from smoking, kill to death ratio in Call of Duty and even how many words they have memorised in Japanese.
In this review, we’ll be taking a look at how to set the application up, and how the process of inputting and tracking your “data” works.
If you’re searching for a way to manage your budget and small expenses on your iPhone, look no further. noidentity have created an application called MoneyBook to help you keep a track of your finances and stick to your budget. The application has a very appealing interface and is remarkably easy to use.
It is available on both the iPhone and iPod Touch and it does not require an internet connection. This review will cover the various features of the application with examples of how it could help you save money!
Glasshouse Apps have developed two applications to make your life that little bit easier. The first, Barista, is full of recipes to creating that perfect, café-style coffee. Whether its a Caffé Latte, Espresso or the humble Flat White – Barista has it.
Cellar on the other hand is an application for adding, organising and keeping track of your wine library. It boasts back up features and many customisable options to make the virtual wine bottles look life-like.
Both applications have an impeccable interface that not only encourages you to explore the application further, but also start using it! Barista and Cellar are available for both the iPhone and iPod touch.
