What on my iPhone? | Tech

I always find it really interesting to see what people have on their phones app-wise, so here's my version!

I always have something cute and bright for my iPhone background, if you go on your phone and google 'kawaii/tumblr/cute' backgrounds you'll find similar. I don't think there's anything particularly exciting about my main screen! I actually survive solely off 3G and Wifi here in Japan, it's very hard for foreigners to get phone contracts and as you can make calls with other apps I won't be calling anyone using actual signal for a while!
Messaging, Japanese Learning and Lifestyle

1

Messaging- Whatsapp is obvious, everyone has it - I use this to message friends and family at home. Facebook messenger too is pretty much a given. Line is the Asian version of Whatsapp which I use to talk with friends in Japan and other foreign students, it's better developed than Whatsapp in my opinion and includes the function to call people for free using the internet and has loads of Line only emojis in-app which are uber cute (and sometimes confusing).

Japanese Learning - Imiwa is an app that if you are a Japanese learner chances you'll have heard of it or have it. It's a massive Japanese dictionary that doesn't require internet, I use this daily - whether I'm doing homework or in the supermarket trying to figure out what the hell something is. *Helpful Hint* if you download the Chinese - Simplified Handwriting keyboard you can draw in kanji (characters) you don't know (the keyboard has very good recognition too) and imiwa will tell you what they mean in seconds! Anki is a flashcard app which is seriously good, it also has a website counterpart which syncs with your phone. I input new words I learn and test myself before bed/on the train. Warning this app is excruciatingly expensive for iPhone users - £17!! I believe it's free for Android users though.

Lifestyle - I don't actually use the Tumblr app but I like the fact it gives me notifications when someone follows me. Depop  I was using to sell things but I just don't really enjoy this app (see my review of Depop vs eBay HERE). I'm not selling while I'm in Tokyo but I use the eBay app to mark dispatch notices and talk to buyers when I sell things. Cloth is like Instagram for your wardrobe - see my review of it HEREMy data manager tells you how much data you're using which is pretty useful but I've recently discovered the iPhone will tell you this anyways so I will probably be deleting this.

Photography and Games

2

Photography - Instagram and snapchat are pretty obvious ones, I don't use Snapchat that often - I've only just got it back after a weightloss company hacked me and messaged everyone in my contacts weightloss adverts constantly. PhotoCollage is a freebie app that allows you to put multiple photos together in interesting ways, I sometimes use this for instagram. Lumie allows you to put cute filters on things (like the heart lights, Bokeh I think they're called?) but I didn't use it enough so I deleted this recently. Line Camera is awesome it has loads of beautification options and tons of stickers to edit photos which are super cute! Face Cam is a beautification app which I occasionally use on selfies to improve my skin, but it also has options to make your eyes bigger and chin sharper etc - can make you look pretty weird if you go too overboard.

Games - Fruit Ninja, Doodle Jump, Angry Birds and Fall Down are crazy addictive. Great boredom busters. I don't really play Angry Birds anymore though as fittingly, it makes me angry. DragonVale is one of those FarmVille type games where you hatch dragon eggs and have in game pay-for-things options which I may have bought before (the shame). I don't really play this anymore at all but haven't deleted the app out of fondness for my dragons, #khaleesiproblems.

Do you use any of these apps or have any recommendations for me? xx

They probably do! It's a company where you design your own phone case, the picture of the cats is a photo by the fashion photographer Tim Walker :) xx
