What's on Georgia's iPhone right now!

If everyone else is sharing what's on their iPhones then you know I want to get in on the fun! The iPhone is the single most important, most critical piece of tech I own. It's what keeps me on time, keeps me connected, and keeps me having fun! Since my Home screen is pretty much default — I'm lazy! — I'm including some of my favorite apps from my second screen as well. And yes, I still don't update applications very often. I don't like change. I don't like learning new interfaces and I don't like that I can't go back to a older version of an app if anything goes wrong. And, hey, this is my iPhone!

  • Wallpaper: I'm using one of Apple's dynamic wallpapers. The colors and movement are beautiful and interesting but not so much that they distract or clash.

  • Shazam: there is nothing more wonderful than being able to hear a song, find out what it is, and buy it in iTunes. I did it in the middle of a television show today, only 7 seconds of a clip and Shazam found the song for me. So great! Free - Download now

  • Tweetbot: I enjoy the interface that Tweetbot uses. I am not a huge fan of social media but Twitter is efficient and simple enough to keep me entertained and involved. $4.99 - Download now

  • Hue: I really love my Hue lights and so this app easily and effortlessly allows me to change the color in my home and my podcasting room. I can also set the lights to add a mood to a movie, like dark blue for Walking Dead and red for Game of Thrones. Free - Download now

  • Duolingo: Gamified language learning, what could be better? Duolingo tracks your progress and gives you experience points. It starts off really easily and you can play against your whole family and all your friends. Free - Download now

  • Zuma's Revenge: Popcap's fun, chain-forming game is great. Match colored stones and try to make the chain disappear before you hit the finish line. $1.99 - Download now

  • iMore: I have my iMore app to keep up with how our stories are doing. And yes, I'm going to be in a lot of trouble when Rene finds out I'm running a really old version! Free - Download now

Editor's note: So. Fired. - Rene

  • iMovie: I adore using iMovie. I use it to document family vacations and make fun trailers. Easy and fun to do. Free - Download now ($4.99 if you didn't buy a new iOS device in 2013)

  • Plants vs. Zombies 2: Defeating the zombie apocalypse as you increase your botanist skill, what could be better? Save your brainz! Free - Download now

  • Google Maps: I will truly get lost in any situation and so Google Maps and its accuracy for navigation and traffic is really important to me. Free - Download now

  • Layout: If I'm going to post a picture on Twitter or Instagram and want to make it a montage or comparison, I use Layout. It's easy to use, customizable, but not too complex. $1.99 - Download now

  • Pebble: The app that lets me update and get the most out of my smartwatch. Free - Download now

  • Room Pocket: An exceptionally well made 3D puzzle solving game that's not too frustrating. Free - Download now

Well, that's what's on my iPhone! If you have any better apps you'd like to recommend, let me know! Also, if you want to see my iPad Home screen or Mac Dock, tell me in the comments!

Q: "What's on Georgia's iPhone right now?"

A: Selfies? No selfies?

Allyson Kazmucha says:

Damnit, I was going to say that.

Rolf Hed says:

Haha The "duckface selfies" must be under lock and key... (j/k)

Georgia says:

omg im so embarrassed but yes I have a ton of selfies and pictures of nail polish and lip gloss on my phone.

Ok now I am going to go back to hide =)

Jayne Mansfield says:

I find it interesting that you have Google and Apple maps on different screens. I have maps in one folder.

Allyson Kazmucha says:

Georgia! Your first page is so boring! I'm disappointed...

Antron says:

Yes, indeed it is. Time to redeem yourself Georgia...what's on your iPad!! Lol

Georgia says:

I know Ally I am pretty vanilla, sorry

Agent-P says:

I would have so much anxiety if I had 58 app updates pending.

LandRovers says:

So would I, I couldn't go throughout the day with out hovering my finger over the "Update All" button.

Georgia says:

I get more annoyed if things are updating and changing the manner in which my applications work than the other way around. I am a creature of habit I guess.

RupMjee says:

I prefer to have manual updates too ... even if I update all the apps; I prefer to read the changelog before updating. I have had bad experiences with some of the app updates earlier; hence lesson learnt. Won't make that mistake again. No 'auto update' for me.

My first page is all folders. Pretty dizzy for someone that doesn't own the phone. For me it's organized

I am curious since this wasn't mentioned (or I missed that part) but do all of the staff of Imore use 64gb iPhones or what size do each of you use?

thatuxguy says:

What about the other screens?

I sorry, I'm not trying to be mean or anything but when you write that:

" I still don't update applications very often. I don't like change. I don't like learning new interfaces and I don't like that I can't go back to a older version of an app if anything goes wrong."

Why are you even writing for a tech web site where people come to get advice and learn about new apps etc. You're are suppose to be a senior editor, no very encouraging to readers to hear that. Just saying.

Premium1 says:

She always usually waits awhile to update to the latest OS as well, so this isn't surprising.

Michelle Haag says:

Meh, we probably have readers that do the same thing. Maybe they enjoy knowing they're not the only one that doesn't like to update? ;)

Georgia says:

No offence taken at all. I think that a lot of our readers are similar, we like to have control over what we have on our phone. So though you may not be like this many of those who view our sites are. Diversity is a good thing and at iMore we make sure that many different views, personalities and races are always represented. So we have the fast changers and the slow and I never said I didn't like new tech and to try out new applications, just don't like to update things unless I know what I am updating and why.

cc3d says:

I guess it's fun to pretend anybody gives a shit what is on your phone?!

ndogdrumz says:

I use to have like 4 or 5 pages of apps, then I consolidated to 2 pages, now I have too apps on the homepage and the rest in folders. So far having everything on 1 page is way easier.

luimende says:

I just consolidated 5 pages into 12 folders in one page. Let's see how it goes.

Agent-P says:

I'm also in that camp that keeps very few home pages. My first home page only has one row of apps (I like to be able to see my wallpaper) and my second page has all folders except for a few commonly used apps. I just search for everything else. Way quicker than swiping between pages and looks much nicer too.
