Bookshelves on your desktop…it’s sexy!

I love cool apps for my Mac.  I found this one today on my favorite website and thought I’d pass it along because it’s only $5 and it’s called Desktop Shelves.

Desktop Shelves is normally a $15 app so this is a really good deal.  The app takes all your documents, pictures, or whatever you’d like and lets you drag and drop them on a “shelf” that is on your desktop.  This is no mere wallpaper and you shuffle everything over it and pretend there’s a shelf.  No, no, no.  This is an actual shelf, equipped with cover-flow style browsing and sorting.  Previews of documents and pictures and all.  So I love it.  I think you will, too.  Check it out by following the link below if you think you’re interested.  You can also watch this quick video to see how simple it is to use.  I don’t get paid anything if you buy it.  But I do get brownie points so go check it out!

You can follow this link to take you to get the app…but you better hurry because I think today is the last day to get it.  It said the offer expires in 11 hours when I got mine.  And let me know if you like it or get it!  I’d like to know if you like my recommendations here.

What’s on your iPhone?

What’s your Home Screen have on it?  Since most people consider their Home Screen to be the most valuable real estate on their device, your Home Screen can say a lot about you and what’s important to you.

Mine has a lot of social stuff like Twitter, FourSquare, Facebook and of course my Google+.  I also use MyFitnessPal and really love the new Podcasts App from Apple now that they’ve updated it and it’s not so sluggish.  If you don’t know about Podcasts you should try them.  They are wonderful little broadcasts (usually audio) that are recorded by individuals or groups about a ton of topics.  I have some business podcasts and fitness ones that I listen to for motivation.  I’ll do a post on which ones I subscribe to in the future!

I have Spotify because I use it every single day (love that app).  I can listen to all my songs on iTunes and on all my iDevices no matter where I am.  This is great when I’m running or at the office.  I can stream the music so I don’t have to take up a lot of memory on my devices.  Love!

And, of course, I have the full suite of Facebook Apps to manage my pages and upload the photos quicker.  The Messenger app kind of feels like overload to me and I don’t really use it that often, but I keep it handy.  Usually I’ll get messages through the Facebook app itself.

I also use AppAdvice every day.  They are probably the most comprehensive, up to date, blog I know of about apps.  And their guides for Apps are amazing and so thorough.  I can highly recommend them!!

So that’s it!  What’s on your iPhone or iPad?  How do you organize your Home Screen?  Which apps make the cut?
