#1. Gas Buddy
#2. Amazon Price Check
Another must have. If you have never purchased from Amazon, you are missing out. They have the best prices and it's always free shipping over $25, if it comes from their warehouse. I'll give you an example of how I use it. We have a local toy store in town that my girls love to go to. There stuff can be pretty pricey so we usually just window shop. When I see something that might make a great gift, I take my iPhone out and hold it up to the bar code on the box and push the Scan It button. It scans it and gives me a price within in seconds. I would say 8 out of 10 times, Amazon's price is cheaper and usually by a lot. Plus it's fun scanning stuff too. :)
#3. Flight Aware Live Tracking
I use this app anytime Brian has to fly for business. It's super easy to use and it gives me up to the minute info so I know when to leave to go to the airport. My girls love to view the map of daddy's route. Brooklyn is working on learning her states and I can ask her to tell me what state daddy is flying through. All you need to know is the airline and flight number. It's that simple.
Ok, this one is purely fun and I will warn you, addicting. Have you heard of Pinterest? I hadn't either until about 2 months ago and now I can't put it down. I copied this from Pinterest's website. Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, request an invite. It will probably take you a few days to be accepted, but then it's game on.
Warning: If you have to have complete silence to sleep, this app is not for you. However, if you are like me and can't fall asleep in total silence, you will love this app. My girls have always slept with noise machines on since they were tiny babies. They still do. Whenever we traveled in the past, we had to make sure the noise machine was always in the suitcase. Not anymore, thanks to this app. They have 40 noises. Ours is usually set on heavy rain pouring, but when I want to relax and read, I set it to ocean waves crashing. It reminds me of back home in Southern California.
So there you have it. These are all FREE apps by the way. I would love to hear some of your must have apps. Please leave me a comment and share your favorites.
I have a fun tote bag giveaway from DaySpring I will be giving to a lucky winner who leaves a comment. You have until Thursday to post your favorite app.
