Show and Tell Tuesday: What’s On My Phone

Today for Show On Tell Tuesday I am sharing what’s on my iPhone.  These days our phones are an extension of ourselves.  I feel naked without my phone!

Here is a shot of my main screen and all of my go-to apps to have easily accessible.

It should be noted here that before I took this screen shot I removed about eight million notifications (looks like Instagram snuck one in on me).  I knew that if I posted a pic of how my screen typically looks it would have made Shane’s eye twitch!  Some people need a clear phone, and some people don’t pay those little numbers any attention.  I happen to fall into the later group.  Just last week I had over 7,000 unread emails.  Yikes!

Like most people I constantly reach for my phone to take a quick pic (current count is 4,012 photos on my phone).  My current favorite photo editing app is A Color Story.  It’s free!

Instead of listening to music I most often listen to podcasts or audiobooks.

I love listening to audiobooks and the Audible app gets a lot of use.

I’m currently listening to The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane and I have to say that I am finding it absolutely fascinating.  I downloaded it after asking a friend what she recently picked up at the book store.  I’m so glad I took her recommendation.

Podcasts are also on heavy rotation.

From podcasts produced by NPR, to home decor podcasts, to Bachelorette recaps; I listen to a bit of it all.  What podcasts do you love?

Another favorite is the Kindle app.  While I love holding a good book in my hand, the convenience of always having my current read at my fingertips usually wins out.  I don’t have a lot of extra time in my life right now, but I’m able to steal a few minutes hear and there.  Those little bits of time typically add up to a few books over a month.


I just started The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and I am already hooked.  Taylor Jenkins Reid is quickly becoming a favorite.

And finally, this is may just be my favorite app find.  For years and years I was a die-hard paper planner gal.  I tried numerous calendar apps on my phone only to toss them aside after a week.  I hated them all and loved the satisfaction of a well organized planner.  A friend who loved her planner as much as I did said she had finally found a calendar app that lived up to all of her calendar needs.  So I gave it a try and I was converted.  I finally found a calendar app I love!  It’s the PocketLife Calendar app.

I love that each person in the family can be assigned a color, you can see each event (not just a dot on a calendar), it’s easy to set up reoccurring events, it’s easy to switch between daily, weekly, and monthly views.  Overall, the best calendar I have found that works for us.

Other go-to apps include social media (obviously), drug information apps (#pharmacistlife), the Bible app (how fortunate are we to carry the Bible around in our pocket?), and of course the Target Cartwheel app. Am I the only one that scans every single item in my cart while my kids run up and down the toy aisles?

There are pages and pages of additional apps on my phone, but these are my must-have for daily life.  What are your go-to apps for your phone?

Until next time!

  1. I totally do the same thing at Target! It makes me so mad when I miss a discount on something I’ve bought, so it easier just to scan everything and check! I’m also going to have to check out that calendar app. I’m a planner girl too, but maybe I can be converted 🙂
