GADGET | What's on My iPhone?


There's something about iPhones. The clean, sleekness of the gadget? The collection of classy colours available? The swiftness of the touch-screen? The accessible fun, handy apps? The fact that basically everyone on the entire planet owns one? Who knows. Today's most popular phone is dominantly taking over our lives as fast as social media and technology is. And, as of last Christmas, one of these masterpieces them is now in my possession.

For you gadget and tech-lovers, and all my readers, I have delivered to you a run down of the applications that are currently on my iPhone 6, some you will know, some you will never heard of before. Let's get cracking...



 My lockscreen displays an artsy-fartsy picture of a street in Rome, while my homescreen is a group photo of me with my friends going to a party, hidden behind the community of apps. I'm on the far right, in case you didn't spot me!

So the four bottom apps are not necessarily the most used; I hardly ever phone people, text occasionally, and Snapchat is just there so I can click on it on a whizz to 'snap chat something', as I say. Photos is important, however, as I'm a lover of photography, and I enjoy keeping my Camera Roll in moderation and organisation... most of the time!

Settings, safari, mail, app store... They're the basic basics. Followed after them are the basics; my social media apps.

- Tumblr is for when I want to drool over band photos, fandom gifs, fashion show looks, unique make up, creative photography and hilarious text posts.

- Twitter is for communicating with awesome-possum people and for documenting my life in extraordinarily random bursts of
140 characters.

- I open up Bloglovin' when I need some motivation to blog, because where else would I look?

- Camera is tapped on for shameful selfies and group selfies, as well as anything that is photo-worthy in my eyes.

- Instagram, my everything. Instagram offers inspiration from others and the chance to inspire others. It's probably my
favourite app!

- Viber and Whatsapp is downloaded for chit chat groups and for organising days out with friends.

- Google Hangouts is not used so much now/ I used to contact my blogger friends with it, but now with the power of Twitter DM groups (yes, they are a thing now), Hangouts may disappear from my phone eventually.

- VINE. NOTHING HAS NEVER MADE ME LAUGH AS MUCH AS VINE DOES. Scrolled through also for band and fandom purposes, as well as a pick me up. Some vines are too damn funny... and weird.

- YouTube provides videos of a weird singing girl with lots of lipstick, a boy with side swept dark hair that talks with his head always tilting the same way about his failures in life, and many more video makers for my entertainment.

- Netflix and I are on a bit of a break. I'm too busy, he's too busy; it just doesn't work. Soon, I will be back with him, watching TV shows and movies... I look forward to the day!

- Storie is a new app, I think was made by FunForLouis, and is basically a vlog type app where you can upload quick videos that record the events of your day. So all in all, it's similar to Snapchat! But for me, Snapchat is for my personal use, and I hope to use Storie for my, as you could call it, 'blogging life', when that life becomes more exciting. I'll let you know when I put up a 'Storie'!

- Notes is actually such a handy app, as is Reminders. Do not underestimate the helpfulness of Apple applications!

- Music is pretty much my life right now with the help of Spotify. There's too many bands, too many songs... Too many bands...

- Music, the actual app, on the other hand is less of an essential for me, as Spotify has all the music I listen to these days, as well as other fab albums I haven't yet discovered.



- Pinterest and Polyvore, both fun Tumblr-esque apps I love, are a bit out of action right now for me. I'll get back into it
at some stage.
- Lookbook is where a collection of recent OOTD photos locate; a cool, fashionable app, great when you're on a search for new fashion bloggers to follow.

- Google + is mainly just a place for promoting my blog, really. It's not a very exciting app, in my opinion.

- Quizlet and DS File are for school purposes (I really recommend Quizlet; it is a flashcard app and makes learning French phrases, for example, a lot simpler)!

- Google Translate, Calculator, Yr.no (a weather app), Clock, Calendar and the Extras and Other folders are the most boring areas of my phone, so let's move on to the folders at the top of the screen...

Photography
Fotor, VSCOcam, Squaready, Pic Collage, Be Funky, Pic Lab
(I forgot to snap the second page of this folder, but I think it just had iMovie and other video editors!)
These magnificent apps consist of beautiful filters and interesting effects to make my Instagram photos look decent enough.


Games
Dubsmash, Heads Up, Jump, FaceQ, Quiz Up, Fall Out Bird, Crossy Road, Flappy Bird, Dumb Ways to Die, The Line, Minion Rush, Dot, Two Dots, 2048, Panic! In Vegas
I have neglected these fun apps recently. I have a lot there for the option! Fall Out Bird and Panic! In Vegas are both games made by the bands Fall Out Boy and Panic! In Vegas and are so fun. I prefer Fall Out Bird to Flappy Bird; the app playing Fall Out Boy songs, and instead of a bird it is the band members avoiding obstacles are only a few reasons why. I don't really understand how Panic! In Vegas works, but it plays Panic! At The Disco in the background so I'm not complaining one bit...
Heads Up, Dubsmash, Jump and Quiz Up are brilliant games to play with friends, laughing fits guaranteed!



Shopping
Forever 21, Hollister, ASOS, Bandsintown, and The Hunt
(Wish has actually been deleted since I took this photo!)

If I'm ever in the mood to do window-shopping but not motivated to leave the comforts of my bed, I turn to this folder. Bandsintown however is for upcoming concerts in my area. It's fun to keep track of artists who are on tour.

That is all that is on my iPhone 6! I hope my blog post has satisfied your nosy needs.
What's on your phone?

  2. I know exactly what you mean! It's like iPhones were created exclusively for people who love fashionable phones. Hahaha! At any rate, I definitely love the apps you have on your phone. Snapchat is a total must have to keep in touch with close friends. Thanks for sharing that, Jane! All the best to you!
