What’s on my iPad mini?

I’ve been using my iPad mini a lot more recently, so I thought I’d share my favourite apps with you. I love how it’s the perfect in-between size, bigger than my phone, smaller (and lot lighter) than my macbook. Aside from the obvious apps, such as instagram, twitter, and bloglovin.. I’ve been loving these apps…
1.Cream and Sugar. Price: free
This app has in app purchases available but lots of cute photo editing freebies to keep you going, such as fonts, backgrounds, cute stickers, and pretty borders galore. I always have way too much fun with this app.
2. Etsy Price: free
I love this quirky website full of home made, hand crafted goods. I like that you can save your favourites whilst scrolling through, this is a great website / app for original gift ideas.
3. Woman’s Calendar Price: free
This is an app to keep track of your period, ovulation and weight etc. It’s clear, pretty and simple to use, you can also track symptoms such as acne, a pain scale etc. I find it really helpful.
4. IBooks Price: free
I absolutely love iBooks, I’m always on my iPad and it’s never far from my side so I always have a book handy as well as all of my social media apps and games etc. I love that you can download a substantial sample before deciding whether to purchase the book or not.
5. Calc pets HD Price: free
So this is a novelty calculator app, it’s cute but it works. If you can make something cuter, why not? You can choose from an array of cute puppy, kitten and bunny themes. I obviously chose the dachshund.

6. Do! Price: free
A simple, easy to use list making app. I like how you can actually scribble a line through as you make your way down the list.

7. Candy crush Soda saga price: free
The new Candy crush game, I’m so addicted to this. I love and hate it at the same time. I’ve turned into that person on your Facebook friends list, asking you to send me lives to fuel my candy crushing addiction.

8. iDream price: free
I love this app, I am always having weird unusual dreams, so it’s fun to scroll through this app and see what they might mean.

9. Frankie Magazine
It’s so handy to be able to buy and read magazines without having to nip to the shop. Flicking through the pages almost feels like a real magazine despite it being on an iPad.

So these are my recent favourite iPad mini app picks, what do you think? Let me know yours in the comments, if there’s any apps you think I am missing out on!

    I'm still not sold on the iPad mini but I love the sound of some of these apps, I'll be sure to check them out on my phone!

    Can I just say– your wallpaper is so pretty.

    Also, I really need to invest in a new iPad mini. I have the older iPad that is way too heavy to hold when you're trying to read books.

    I've been wanting to get an Ipad mini for ages I just didn't know if the size compared to my phone would make much difference. I have just downloaded idream though, looks like an interesting app!

      Oh it makes a huge difference πŸ™‚ it's a lot better visually for playing games and reading blogs. A lot bigger than the iPhone but less awkward than lugging a laptop around type thing πŸ™‚ x

    I love my ipad mini too, it's the perfect inbetween for my phone and laptop. I think I might download that Do! app, I love a good list!

    I love I pad mini- it always so handy, especially when I travel. Do! sounds like something I need πŸ™‚

    I'm considering purchasing an iPad mini. I have an iPad and a MacBook, but I find both slightly too clunky, and obviously the iPhone isn't great for bigger tasks, let alone to awful battery life!

    I have just been given an iPad mini as an early Christmas present and I absolutely adore it! Might have to give some of these apps a try!

    Ty for the suggestion for cream and sugar! If you like role playing games, perhaps try out Hay day πŸ™‚

    I love reading actual copies of books, but lately I've been reading via iPad for convenience sake (as I'm waiting for the bus to arrive for instance). For magazines, however, I think I'd much prefer to have an actual copy of that. They're so lightweight in the first place! The app I use to keep track of ovulation is called Pink Pad πŸ™‚ The Cream and Sugar app looks really cute, and the iDream is really intriguing! The most heavily used app on my iPad are the weather app, the Chinese-English translation dictionary, and BAKERY STORY!! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

    These are all great recommendations, it's so awesome to see Frankie magazine on there – I had no idea it was popular outside of Australia!

    Your wallpaper is so cute!! I really want to get an iPad mini, maybe I'll treat myself to one for Christmas…. I think a few of these apps would be good on the iPhone too though, love the women calendar app, what a great idea!

    Is Frankie Magazine only available in the UK? I think I'd love it but I've never seen it in stores!

    I really need that Frankie magazine app! It's going to save me lots of time from searching for the actual hard copy, since it isn't very popular from where I am. Thanks for sharing! Enjoyed reading this blog post.

  24. December 12, 2014 / 4:33 am

    I've been loving Candy Crush Soda, too! I feel guilty for liking it because it's a total time waster, but I don't even care anymore. That music haunts my dreams.

    There are many reasons why the customers prefer ipad mini which are apps for ipad mini, security apps, design, colors, features that make it different from others.
