I admit, I am behind on technology :/ But, my dad just got us an iPad. So, those of you with iPhones and iPads - what are your favorite pregnancy apps?

I use the baby center pregnancy app. It gives you an article very day different to read and keeps up with how far you are, etc.

I downloaded all of the free ones and bought a few that I really liked. I can't remember now which ones I paid for and which were free, but here are the names of all the ones I have:
Baby Center (my pregnancy)
What to Expect (pregnancy)
Pregnancy pregnant
Enfamil Expecting baby
My baby lite
I'm Expecting
Sprout lite (pregnancy)

A little excessive of me don't ya think?

I have What to Expect and Sprout. Here are some pro's and con's of each!

What to Expect

Gives you daily and weekly readings to let you know whats going on with you and baby
Includes tips for dads!
Gives you a fruit and measurements
Place for your belly pictures
Connects you to message boards
I like that it gives you updates for your actual development... for example, most apps/sites will put you a week behind. I'm 16 weeks 6 days now so the majority of apps place me in week 16 for development, but in reality I've completed 6 days of week 17 so I should be in week 17 for development.
Numbers the days of your pregnancy

Changes fruits in the middle of the week - so it can be confusing. Especially if you're comparing it to other apps/sites
This drives me nuts (may not drive you nuts) but 70% of the readings have to do with nutrition and weight gain
No baby development pictures

Sprout (full app)

Pictures of baby's development -- with extra information on certain development features
Countdown to delivery
Weekly and daily readings
Gives you a timeline for different tests and milestones in pregnancy
Has an organizer that lets you add notes and things for Doc visits, a To-Do list, Newborn Essentials and Hospital Bag
Has a weight tracker, kick counter and countraction timer
A lot less nutritional and weight readings

Doesn't give you a fruit or measurements
A week behind in development
I tried to post to facebook earlier this week, and it tried to tell me the baby was the size of a lemon -- its details can be way behind
No just for dad information
Some of the readings are very VERY similar to earlier ones

I haven't downloaded anything else. Between these two I have more than enough to keep me occupied!!!
