Home Screens - Jen Biscoe

This is the 26th post in a series called Home Screens. David Sparks over at MacSparky has been doing this for a long time and I thought it would be interesting to ask my friends, family, and former co-workers what is on their Home Screens!


I have been a lifelong PC user that loves technology with a passion for pictures.   I had an Android phone for years and even purchased an Android Toshiba Thrive.  My Thrive was hardly used as it was not easy to deal with my music, pictures and apps.  It had all the expandability that iPads didn't, I mistakenly chose expandability over intuitive operation and functionality.  i wanted an iPad and finally got one in August.  It was intuitive, easy to transfer my info and awesome.  I quickly decided to get the iPhone 5 and now recently purchased a MacBookPro to manage my large photo library.  I have my pictures more organized upon importing, that I have ever had before.  I love all my Apple products, I could have never imagined how simple Apple/Mac products are to use.  I still have a lot to learn, but I wish I would have made the switch years ago.


What are your most interesting home screen apps?  

Scanner Pro, 3M Cloud Library, One Click Digital and iPhoto.

What is your favorite app?  

My PCFirst Credit Union App that allows me to deposit checks in seconds by taking pictures of it and sending it electronically.

Which app is your guilty pleasure?  

Spell Tower & Pintrest

What is the app you are still missing?  

One that would allow a friend to send me a playlist and purchase the songs that I don't already have, while using the songs that I already have.

How many times a day do you use your iPhone/iPad?  

Too many to count ;)

What is your favorite feature of the iPhone/iPad?

I love the integration of all of my Apple devices.  My iPad and iPhone allow me to be more connected, more organized and more productive than I ever imagined.  I have had them for a while now, and I continue to be surprised when my photos are streamed to all my devices without touching anything.  That is purely amazing to me.

If you were in charge at Apple, what would you add or change?  

I would have an program that would allow PC owners try an Mac and give it back no strings attached if they don't love it.  I don't think that they would get very many back.
