On my iPhone

New Apps:

Lose It! is a really neat free application for your iPhone that allows you to track what you eat, your exercise, your weight and even can post updates to Facebook and Twitter for you when you exercise weigh in or meet your goal.  The software allows you to do all this on your phone or through a website.  Very cool!   

New Music:

I apparently have been listening to the song Little Lion Man by  Mumford and Sons for the past week or so since it has been playing on 92.9 for awhile now.  I had no idea who sang the song, I just had liked it, but didn't think much about it.  I was listening to one of my podcasts the other day (Spin Control - a podcast about spinning, knitting and sewing) and at the end the host Shilo always shares a song.  After hearing this past week's song, Winter Winds, I checked the group out on iTunes and discovered everything on their album Sigh No More is just wonderful.  They very folky and can sound either Celtic or bluesy depending on the song.  Overall, I think it's a great album with good lyrics and would recommend it to anyone who likes that genre of music. 

New Podcasts:

The iMake podacast is pretty new to iTunes with only 4 episodes, but it promises to be a really neat.  The host talks about a wide range of different crafts and even has a segment about her culture and life in Guernsey, Channel Islands where she lives.  The podcast is really entertaining and I like how she talking about all crafts, not just one.
