The Best ipad (Mini) Apps

I'd thought it would be fun to share with you my favourite apps that I've got on my ipad mini, which I've now had for about a month. I've had enough time to try out the hundreds of apps I was desperate to have, and now I've got a set that I don't know what I'd do without. Some of them are pretty standard, but I hope I can introduce you to some slightly less-known ones too :)

There's a fair few on my ipad so although I'll picture all of them, I'll only talk about my favourites.
Lets Go!

I took these photos with the cover off because to be honest I don't like the cover I have that much, and haven't found one I love for it yet :(

Here's my home-screen with the apps I use most frequently. I'm addicted to facebook and tumblr, with slightly less serious addiction to pintrest and twitter! iTunes U is great if you're a uni or A-level student, with loads of free lectures etc.

MyFitnessPal is a diet/calorie planner, where you can scan the barcodes of your food to enter them into  your food diary. It's so easy, you feel bad if you don't do it. It's a free app too, which I think is insanely good.

iBooks is a pretty standard app, but I didn't initially realise that if you click on Store (top left of screen) and then go to free books, there are hundreds of free to download books of all kinds. I've been loving reading books in bed on my ipad, and don't worry, you can adjust the screen brightness in the app.

In the folders on my homescreen I've got the following:
Pic Collage is great for making cute collages with pictures and text (with a lovely interface) and I'd say BeFunky is the best free photo editor I've found for ipad.
My current favourite game is HayDay (This will feature in my January favourites, no doubt!) and I also love Yatzy, Shark Dash and Monopoly.

TV Catchup is a weird name for this app as it actually streams TV realtime. As long as you have a TV liscense where you're watching, it completely legal, and it's good quality too.

Here's my second screen of apps. I'd highly recommend getting the following: Podcasts, MailOnline, ColorSmart (great if you're redecorating!), Google Earth (to replace the dreadful iMaps) and of course Blogger!

Sorry this turned out to be a quite a long post, but I hope it was helpful :)
Do you have any app gems? I'd love to hear about them!

    1. Thank you, and thank you for following :)

  2. Would love an ipad, lucky girl!


  3. This makes me want an iPad now, although I suppose an iPhone's just as good. Thanks for the recommendations.

    1. Yeah, I think an iPhone will do much of the same stuff, but it's such a nice experience on the bigger screen of the ipad in my opinion :)

  4. If you like Words with Friends, I recommend you try out Scramble with Friends. It's basically like boggle! I personally love it! :)

    P.s I found your blog today and love it! :D xx

    1. Thank you so much! I will defs try Scramble with Friends, sounds right up my street hehe :)
