I'm a tech geek, it's true. My apple collection is one I'm mighty proud of & I'd be lying if I said I hadn't spent most evenings this past week playing the xbox (actually not that common these days but we bought PVZ Garden Warfare & it's so fun!). I spend a lot of time on my iPad mini these days as it's just so convenient, it can do most things my laptop can and it's way better than staring at a tiny iPhone screen. I'm big on the apps and always browsing for new ones for my short attention span to have fun with for a little while.. here are some of my faves:
eBay - This is actually my least used app as I generally only check it once or twice a week (usually on a sunday or monday to see what new listings were put up on the weekend) I don't bid on millions of things these days but I keep my eye out for any bargain gems in my saved searches, most recently a brand new Kjaer Weis eyeshadow AND case for 99p! kerching.
artCircles - I don't think there are many great art apps out there but this has potential. I find it tricky to navigate sometimes & it doesn't seem to be updated but it has great variety & will teach you a thing or two about the different art movements.
Instagram - Everyones favourite. I cant imagine what life would be like without it?! (would like an iPad version asap plz)
Bloglovin - Recently got a great update and redesign and I love reading blog posts on it, especially if I've fallen behind and have a few hundred to go through, so quick and easy. It means I can't comment on posts as much as I like but If i really want to leave a comment I mark the post as 'unread' to come back to on my laptop later.
Afterlight - I got bored of instagram filters and this is definitely one if the best apps for editing pictures, I usually edit brightness and contrast and then use one of the "Seasons" filters.. I like Magnolia, Sailor and Cave.
Cook M&S - Such a great little cooking app, I think it's rather new but they've thought of everything and there are some really great recipes on there that I need to make asap. It got a new update a few days ago with an avocado brownie recipe but it doesn't look anywhere near as good as mine ;)
PvZ 2 - One of my favourite games to play on the iPad, I played the original and waited so long for this, so I'm glad it's just as good!
Dropbox - So handy for transferring files from phone to laptop to ipad or vice versa.
iBooks - I have the kindle app but I barely use it, I do prefer the apple book store for now and love downloading the samples to discover new books.. seriously I have about 40 sample books waiting to be read or have read and am waiting to buy. I'm Currently reading Dinosaurs & Prime Numbers by Tom Moran which is quite strange but hilarious.
Honourable mentions: Twitter, YouTube, Spotify, BBC Weather, 2048 and Sky Go.
