Three’s Blogger Pen Pals: Pass It On…

I’ve just received the iPhone5 that Three Mobile are letting me play with for two weeks as a part of their Blogger Pen Pals campaign. The phone is being passed from blogger to blogger with each leaving their mark on the device along with messages and pictures for the following person, kind of like a 21st Century chain letter. I received the phone from the lovely Jennie over at Sailor Jennie and I thought I’d show you some of the lovely things she’s left me to play with/look at/listen to.

The first thing I did when I got the phone was check out the photos that Jennie had left me, I was delighted to be greeted by lots of smiley pet faces. If you’re a fan of Jennie’s blog you’ll know all about her bunny Ralphie and her dog Bailey and they are so cute, I really loved the little videos she left me too. I smiled when I saw the Harry Potter, well Dumbledore, quote too. The camera quality seems really, really good – markedly better than that of my iPhone4. Photo 24-06-2013 23 09 11

I then checked out the folder that Jennie had left on the front screen of the iPhone; inside were some of her favourite apps. I read the lovely message that she left me in the Do! app, I’d never heard of the app before but it seems to be a cutesy to-do list type thing that I’ll love. She mentioned Candy Crush and that she wasn’t loving it – I’d never played it before and to be honest I’m rubbish – can’t believe some people are on level 600 or so (I can’t get past 7…). I was pleased to see Hay Day there, I was addicted a few months ago and I’ve been farming away on Jennie’s farm when I’ve been bored. I really enjoy using Pinterest and Instagram on my phone and the larger screen on the iPhone make it even easier to look at pretty images.

Jennie had also left me a playlist to listen to and I really enjoyed listening to her song choices, they weren’t the kind of thing I normally listen to but it was nice to have something different in my ears. I will be thinking of some songs to add to my own playlist for the next blogger to listen to – I love making playlists!
I’m so excited to play with the phone for the next couple of weeks and leave it full of fun things for Lucille to play with. Let me know of any apps I need to download! I will do another update when my time is up and show you what I’ve been up to.
Have you tried the iPhone 5?

  3. I've got the 4 and I agree the camera quality for the 5 is great! The only thing holding me back is it's slightly taller and (stupid problem) it won't fit in a lot of my compact bags! haha. Weird I know but I'm sure I will break down and get eventually. I'm one of those people that will forever be an iphone person I think!

  4. I haven't got a 5, but the Mr does, so I've had a bit of a play with it. I haven't really been that fussed about upgrading mine though.

  10. Oh my goodness that's such a lovely idea!
    I'm addicted to Candy Crush, embarrassingly, but I've never actually played Hay Day, I think I'm gonna have to give it a go! :)

  11. I'm so glad you liked having a look through everything I left, it was such a fun experience! I even got candy crush on my ipad after I posted the phone back and I've had to go cold-turkey now after getting stuck on a level - it's so annoyingly addictive!
