Handy iPhone Apps

The iPhone has made itself an integral part of my day-to-day life–so much so that it has its own category now on MCOJ! <cue fanfare>

I have a ton of apps installed right now, but I’d say about 90% of them are still “being evaluated.” There are a few, though, that have made the cut to “handy” or I daresay “must have” for me, and by that I mean that I use these apps on almost a daily basis:


What is it?
Evernote is an all-purpose, easy-to-use note taking application. Besides your usual run-of-the-mill note-taking functionality, Evernote runs OCR over your photo notes (even handwritten ones) making them available for general text searches. The caveat, of course, is that the OCR is run on their servers, so your notes have to sync with your web account first to get queued up.

There is a desktop version of the app, along with a web app. Everything gets synced via the account you create.

How much does it cost?
Free. You could upgrade to a premium account which will up your bandwidth, storage, and priority on the OCR queue.

What is it?
Pandora is a music-streaming app that works great on both generations of iPhones. You can link your iPhone app with your Pandora account if you want to keep your radio stations in sync. I find myself using this app more than my own tunes. Thank goodness for the unlimited data plans. 🙂

How much does it cost?

What is it?
A photographer’s best friend. It has quick references, guides and calculators that come in handy for photographers in the field.

How much does it cost?
$3. C’mon, you spend more on a burger nowadays. 🙂

  1. Pandora is awesome!!!

    But I wish it could run in the background while I’m checking e-mail or playing Aurora Faint. What’s Aurora Faint you ask, check it out.

    Photocalc is interesting. Turn your iPhone into a light meter. Excellent and for $3.00
