Here’s a little light reading for your holiday weekend: Last month, CNN Money ran a piece titled “Celebrities’ Favorite iPhone Apps.” It strikes me as bit of a misnomer though — Celebs? I’ve never heard of some of these people. Even so, it’s a fun little list of programs, with special appearances by some familiar faces. So is T-Pain’s top app “I Am T-Pain”? Is that Food Network celeb’s pick a cooking-oriented program? Well, that would be too predictable. But see what they did choose below.
Fav App: Hitchcock
NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, ACTOR: "Allows you to create storyboards using photos from your camera. Inspiring and great for the director in me."
Fav app: First Words
YVES BEHAR, INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER: “My 2 1/2-year-old figures out all the words, spells them in English and French, and laughs every time that he gets it right.”
Fav App: Quordy
RACHAEL RAY, CELEBRITY CHEF: "It's like having Boggle in your iPhone — you just shake it, and the letters scramble on the screen. Quordy helps me pass the time in the back seat of a car."
Favorite app: Bionic Eye
BONNIE HAMMER, PRESIDENT, NBCU CABLE: "When I'm on the road and need a Starbucks fix, I just point my camera at the street, and within minutes I'm sipping a soy chai latte."
Fav app: Amateur Surgeon
T-PAIN, RAPPER: “Any Adult Swim app is the best." In this particular game, you play the role of a pizza delivery boy who must learn to be a surgeon.”
Fav app: Kindle
RANDALL STEPHENSON, CEO, AT&T: There’s no quote here, but the CEO of iPhone's wireless carrier is a devotee of Amazon's eReader app. (With iPhone rumored to hop onto Verizon next year, and Android on the offensive this year, no doubt he’s too busy to give a proper quote.)
Fav app: Gig Baby
KELLY SLATER, PROFESSIONAL SURFER: A music-making app with a metronome, a four track recorder, and a drum machine. “It's great for recording music on the fly.”
Fav app: Crosswords
DANA DELANY, ACTRESS: "I do the New York Times crossword on Friday and Saturday. The great thing is it will give you the answers the next day if you want to cheat."
