A little over a year ago I had this great idea for a blog all about iPhone apps, that was focused more on women and creative sorts, you know, people like me and you (I'm pretty sure most Hey Lucy visitors are women and creative, except for my brothers, who are men, of course, but still creative, and iPhone users). I had an iPhone and found all sorts of app review sites, but they were mostly by men and mostly about games. I like games, but I've got Angry Birds, Plants vs. Zombies, and Bejeweled, and that's about all I really need at the moment. So I started a blog called Applesauce, and posted a whole bunch of app reviews and iphone photos, and it was a lot of fun. And developers were constantly sending me their apps, but there were kind of a lot of crappy apps being sent and it was not always easy to find the time and energy to keep up with everything, and then, a few weeks ago I managed to break the whole site. Also, I had a really good deal on web hosting for the first year, but that ran out and it was starting to cost more money and I couldn't figure out how to fix the site and I really didn't think I could keep it up all on my own, so I finally came to the decision to just let it all go. So if you were an applesauce visitor, I'm sorry that it's not there any more.

I have good news, though! I thought it would be fun to post the occasional review or photo here now, instead! I hope you won't mind, and really, it just means more posts! Recently, Mr. Heylucy's sad little mobile phone died, so we had to upgrade. I gave him my old 3gs iPhone and upgraded to an iPhone 4. Now that I have an even better camera, I need a little push to start playing around with it more and taking pictures every day. I'm still always on the lookout for nifty, well-designed apps, so I'll tell you about them and some of my old favorites that I wrote about before on Applesauce. I'll tag all app related posts applesauce, so if you are interested, you'll be able to easily find them. I hope you won't mind, and I promise this won't become an all-iPhone-all-the-time blog. 


  1. Yay! I had Applesauce bookmarked from way back before I even had an iPhone and now that I have my shiny new iPhone 4 I need to fill it up with lots of great apps. And I won’t even need to subscribe to a new blog đŸ™‚

  2. Oh good! I'm getting all excited about apps again for the first time in a long while! :o)

  3. i thought i broke it! haha. glad to know it really is just gone and not just me doing something wrong. i’m glad you’ll be putting some of the same type stuff on here! more blogs = more :)’s. Hope you have a great one!!!

  4. Excellent idea! I haven’t bought an iPhone yet, but I might get an iPad soon. Same dif re: apps, right? Anyway I welcome posts from you regardless of what you wish to talk about. I’m a true Hey Lucy (and Winston) fan!

  5. Ha ha! No, I broke it all on my own! Doh! 

  6. Yes! Most apps work for both, especially if you are waiting for the iPad 2, which is heavily rumored to have a camera! Photography apps are my favorite, they are a lot of fun.
    I didn't know I had fans! You are making me (and Winston) blush :o) 

  7. GorillaCam app did a wonderful job with your dog’s pic. Anyways, I have a 3G, I have this for almost 2 years already and I’m lovin this phone so much. My friends also already got an iphone 4 and darn…mine looks so outdated, still can’t afford to spend money for iphone 4 since I’m saving one for ipad. I just wanted to ask what is the best camera for iphone 3G in terms of image quality?

say something nice...
