Bored or boring? Get a new hobby. (Here are some apps to get you started.)  by GirlGoneGeek

GirlGoneGeek says: Don't most New Year's Resolutions include something about becoming a well-rounded person, taking up a new hobby or learning a new skill? Well kids, it's the end of February. That's two months of 2011 down, and you're still slogging through the same old daily routine. Why haven't you tried something new and interesting when these apps make it so easy?
GirlGoneGeek's picks
  1. Ham Radio
    Ham Radio It's not the most glamorous new hobby choice out there, but you'll definitely stand out from the crowd with this one. Learn the terminology and see if you can ham it up as a radio operator or listener.
  2. Mountaineering
    Mountaineering Fancy yourself a real toughie? Check out the mountain sports with this app - learn about taking routes over rock, snow and ice and see if the wild is calling you.
  3. Wine Tasting
    Wine Tasting This one is a trendier hobby - but that means it's easier for people to catch you out if you don't know what you're doing! Hold down a convo like a true oenophile using this app as a reference for how to taste a wine AND how to talk about it.
  4. Pocket Salsa
    Pocket Salsa These lesson videos and podcasts will have you burning up the dance floor in no time! And looking for a dance partner makes a great conversation-starter.
