Friday Find: The Poetry Foundation's iPhone App

Yesterday afternoon I left work early for the semiannual fun-filled dental checkup. The bad news (this time) is that I have the beginnings of a cavity that "we'll watch" for the next several months. Oh, and I should give some serious thought to adult braces for my lower teeth (I thought all of that was taken care of with six years of orthodontia way back when).

But the good news is that while I was in the waiting room I finally downloaded the new (and free) Poetry Foundation poetry app. I have to say that it is a vast improvement over the "Poem Flow" app I paid for awhile back. "Poem Flow" ended up giving me a single poem each day—usually the same poem I was already receiving for free from the Academy of American Poets. The Poetry Foundation app, on the other hand, gives you access to so many poems, neatly organized by topic (or to suit your mood). Thumbs up for the Poetry Foundation's app!

Wishing you all a great weekend. See you back here on Monday!

I love Poetry Flow, too. The $2.99 version gets you daily poems for a year. It's so simple that it's satisfying in that way.

Yes, there is something nice about that simplicity.
