Just one day prior to moving overseas, I disastrously lost my iPhone and every day since I muse over that Smarty Pants gadget. Everything under the sun was, literally, at my app-loving fingertips and I just discovered four more reasons to dis my normal cell:
• Words with Friends. [Free] Call all Scrabble obsessed, logophile phenes and engage in a word-slinging crossword combat. If you're afraid you can't mix work with your puzzling play, a text message or email will alert when your turn is up.
• Convertbot. [99¢] A graphic, well-designed conversion robot that translates over 400 different units including currency, length, mass and time — but handling conversions to and from mixed units pretty much takes the cake.
• AppBox Pro. [99¢] Mimicking an Apple home screen, your phone will be loaded with over 20 apps like a real-time currency converter, worldwide holiday calendar, tip calculator, translator, cinometer [a level utility], flashlight, and even a system to track the best time to try and get pregnant. It's the closest thing to a personal assistant without the ego trips and yearly salary.
• Karma Art. [99¢] The most creative way to pass time in doctors' offices/grocery store lines/on hold with your accountant...or if you just want to send something other than the ubiquitous text. Put together an original masterpiece quicker than you can say Win, Lose or Draw.
