Hello my name is Fame Gal and I’m an iPhone app-aholic. Okay it’s not quite that dramatic, but I am definitely always shopping the App Store for cool new things I can do with my iPhone. Blake Lively also shares my love of iPhone apps.
iTunes U - iTunes U is a full education on the go. You can download course content from universities like Yale and Stanford, or art institutions like MoMa. It has everything from French courses to Spanish history. It's incredible to have such vast access to any subject I'm interested in right there in my pocket.
8mm – This is the moving hipstamatic! This app creates such ambience and character in any setting. It brings your video back to any era. And the shutter sound and pulsing borders are such great details!
Action Movie FX – This is endless fun with my nieces and nephews. I can't tell you how many tornados I've been in. Dorothy has nothing on me!
Gucci Style - This one is so great because I can not only shop the newest pieces, but browse through the archives for inspiration. And my favorite part is that it also has a soundtrack made by Frida, a travel guide to the French Riviera (my favorite place in the world), and early previews of movies at Cannes and info on film restoration. One of the reasons I appreciate working with Gucci so much is how prominent philanthropy is in their foundation. This keeps you up to date on all that they're creating. I'm proud to have a home there
Martha Stewart Everyday Food: Fresh & Easy Recipes – Anything Martha does is magic. I use this as a daily dose of inspiration.
And to wrap it up, here are some tips and tricks I bet you didn’t know (I sure didn’t) that could make life just that little bit easier:
- Use your iPhone’s built in dictionary anywhere by highlighting text and selecting 'Define'.
- When surfing the web, the Reader button in Safari will remove all ads and make it easier to read the main story – this is amazing for reading articles!
- Share your internet with Personal Hotspot by going to Settings -> Personal Hotstop -> On
- Use the + volume button for taking self portraits. This also works with the + button on headphone controls which is great for group shots.

That's all from me for now. And don't forget to perform regular updates on your iPhone!
