When I first got an iPhone (circa 2009), I think I literally spent a week sorting through the app store to find just the right apps. Since then, it’s been a refined process of checking out new apps. I may find out they don’t work for me very well, or it may revolutionize my iPhone experience (hyperbolically speaking of course). Then sometimes I end up going back to an abandoned app and finding months later it’s just what I need.
Anyway, as of late 2012, here’s what my home screen looks like:
That new Gmail app is really sweet, and better than the native mail app, it lets me open web links in Chrome. Because I have Chrome synced across devices, I can access that link I opened on my phone later either on my computer or my iPad.
Speaking of which, the home screen for it looks like this:
You may notice some apps in common (beyond the standard Apple ones). I use the iPad primarily as an eReader (if you couldn’t tell by the 4 different reading apps), but obviously there’s still room for diversions (like Facebook, which I don’t have on my phone) and productivity management (you’ll notice I have 2Do on my iPhone and iPad and they are synced).
So, that’s what I’ve got on my home screens, the question is, what’s on yours?
Let me know in the comments below if there’s something I’m totally missing out on. It may be on my back screen (I use the folders to keep both devices to two screens of apps), but then again it might not!
If you wanted to, you could even tweet a picture and tag me in it and we can start the conversation there too!
