It’s no surprise to anyone these days that our phones/apps play a huge role in our every day life. We take pictures, we have all of our social media on there to keep up with, email, etc. So it makes sense to get as much as we can out of it. I wanted to share some of my favorite apps that I’ve been using lately that help and entertain me through the day!
Wunderlist – For Productivity
I found this app not too long ago and have loved using it! It’s really helped out with planning Ro’s first birthday and keeping up with all there is to do with that. Plus, who doesn’t love checking things off their to-do list?! I think my favorite part of the app is the little sound it makes when you check off an item. “DING!” So satisfying!
This App has also helped me because I always have my phone but I don’t always remember to bring along a list I may have written at home. I can’t tell you how many grocery lists I’ve left at home while rushing out the door.
Fooducate – For Healthy Living
This app is awesome. My dad introduced me to this one. Not only do I trust him because he’s my dad, he’s also a personal trainer, he knows his stuff.
There are two features on here that I use constantly. The food finder and the health tracker. Food finder helps you while you’re shopping to find the best possible choices. You scan the product and it gets a grade. We try very hard to stay within the A/B range. You’d be surprised what some of you favorite products get!
The health tracker is great if you’re trying to lose weight or just trying to be more conscious of what’s going into your body. You can add your own foods, keep track of your water intake (something still very hard for me), and add in your workouts. They have a huge variety of activities that burn calories including some very realistic options for stay at home mamas or daddies.
Timehop – For Memories
Warning: this app has the capability to cause nostalgia induced tears
If you aren’t already using it and you use Instagram as much as Facebook, you need the app! I love this app for the shear fact that there are many moments that I have forgotten. Especially since Gav is closer to five than four. There are pictures from when we still counted his age in months! It’s fun to compare how he looks with Ro and there are videos that melt my heart. One that popped up months ago was a funny video of something Gav used to do as a toddler. We would tell him that we had to go to the bathroom and he would run and flush the toilet and yell “Pee Peeeeeeeeee!”. I must have rematched that video a hundred times! (Dear teenage Gavin, sorry but I will be telling that story to your girlfriends.)
Also, as much as it pains me to think that my baby is going to be a year old, Ro will soon be in the Timehop feed with his brother!
– For Bordom Busting
I love having this one on my phone specifically for carline. If I’m not reading a book or I’m only five minutes early, I pop on Pinterest. I’m always looking for new ideas, home projects, or like right now, planning a party!
What are some of your favorite apps for your every day life?
PS: All of these are free apps!
