Four ways to Have Fun with Your Phone

We use our phones all the time, like all the time. I find that sometimes it’s the first thing I do when I wake up. We use our phones for everyday things, like calling or texting our friends and family and documenting special moments in our lives with the camera. Since it’s one of more favorite things, why not have some fun with it?. Check out these 4 ways to have fun with your phone.

I was provided with products from Freeway in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.

4 ways to have fun with your phone

Holiday Fun

Check out what apps are available to download for the Holidays! You can find apps for moving wallpaper, holiday ringtones and even message alerts. Customize your phone with fun holiday favorites! For Halloween, my phone has a graveyard moving wallpaper with flashing lighting and flying bats. I found a great ringtone from my favorite Halloween movie, Hocus Pocus. The best part? You can find tons for free! I can’t wait to see what’s available for Thanksgiving!

Go to the Library

You don’t have to own a dedicated e-reader anymore to take advantage of amazing digital libraries. Check with your local library, but many libraries now have a vast digital catalog that you can download, for free, and read right on your phone using apps like Overdrive. These aren’t just the classics, but tons of new releases and even audio books. Just like the physical library, many books have waiting lists, but once they are available, you are instantly able to download your book and read within seconds. Once your loan period expires, the book is no longer accessible and is “re-shelved” for the next reader.

Social Media

We’ll start with the obvious, all of your favorite social media sites have apps for both iPhone and Android devices. One I just started playing with recently is Snap Chat. My friends and I have had a ton of fun sending silly messages to each other. You snap a picture and then you can draw on top of the picture and add crazy things. The messages sent disappear, but be aware your friend can take a screenshot and save it.

Win Stuff

I’m not talking about earning virtual coin, but actually winning cool prizes by simply swiping your screen to “scratch.” Freeway is a unique app that lets you login, discover amazing products and play to win the product, or get even get a discount on the item. Every day when you login you earn points, you use those points to play for the amazing product. When you win, the product it shipped right to your door. Products range from amazing technology, makeup and even Louboutin “So Kate” heels. Yes ladies, shoes!!

Check out my video review:


I’ve had so much fun playing the FreeWay app, I haven’t yet won anything yet, but I have earned more points and coupons and I know I am going to win something soon! It’s so easy to just open up the app, scratch and play. I get the excitement of a bit of gambling without the risk! Freeway has such interesting products, so if you need inspiration of a great gift this holiday season, grab the app and check out the great products.

Freeway is available on the App Store and soon on the Google Play Store. Want free Christmas gifts?
