Digging... iPhone Apps

Nike Training Club (Free) 
More than 60 workouts tailored to all fitness levels and needs, featuring visual and audio guidance and, if you wish, your own music playlist. I tested out a 30-minute “Get Lean” routine on the Intermediate level... It was tough, and I work out every day! A lot of the moves require equipment such as a medicine ball, but you can always improvise. 

StyleBook ($4.99) 
This app is something that every female viewer of the film Clueless has been waiting for since the film’s 1995 release. Photograph, categorise and style outfits with your own clothing... Do you get where I’m going with this? It is literally the program Cher uses to pick out her school clothes. ‘Nuff said.

Bejeweled 2 ($1.19)
Great for killing time whilst waiting for appointments. My favourite feature is the Facebook Blitz mode, in which you play the game for one minute and compare your top score against those of your Facebook friends on a leaderboard. It’s completely addictive and I’m very competitive; a dangerous combination! The app's only problem is that it takes a long time to load; I'll often have just enough time for one game, only to spend the whole time waiting for the damn thing to open.

Sleep Cycle ($1.19) Simply give this app a half hour window in which you need to be awakened and pop your phone next to you in bed (on Flight Mode in order to protect your precious brains, of course). It monitors your movements and gently wakes you up at the point when you are sleeping the lightest.

Kawaii Pet MEGU (Free)
I am obsessed with this app. You name your pet, feed him, clean him, get him to sumo wrestle with strays and every few days, the little guy evolves into increasingly random forms. But the best part is the delightfully non-sensical Japanese phrases. Please enjoy a few of my favourite screen captures:
