There’s an app for that…

My name is Rachel, and I’m addicted to my iPhone.

I never intended to join the iPhone ranks…I even came home with a much cheaper phone when we went to pick out new phones in January. It only took me about 15 minutes playing around with Ben’s iPhone to convince me to upgrade.

I’m really glad I did…not only is it convenient to check multiple email accounts easily, and has tons of cool applications, but it has been a lifesaver for me while nursing Fiona. Truly!

Back when I nursed Madi, I watched a lot of television…mostly HGTV shows like Surprise By Design and anything on the Food Network. When Parker came along, I didn’t keep the TV on anymore because of Madi, but at night I would read or whatever.

This time though, it’s all about my phone. I always have it with me because I have an awesome nursing timer application that keeps track of everything you could possibly imagine. Then while I’m nursing, it is super easy to check my email and facebook account, read the news, listen to a podcast of a sermon, play a quick game of solitaire, or write a blog entry…

It’s revolutionary…the ultimate in multitasking and it keeps me awake when I am up in the middle of the night.

Addicting? Sure. Anti-social? Once in a while. Useful? Absolutely. A much needed connection to the outside world from my very own glider? Yes…there’s an app for that…

  1. I love it!! I don’t have one but would have loved it for my nursing days. I too watched a lot of HGTV with my first.

  2. Rachel:
    We loved listening to the iphone blog and Mom related. She is considering whether to get one for herself. She relates to the anti social part.

  3. Thanks Amber – it is definitely a lifesaver – entertainment in the palm of your hand!!
