I first downloaded the Fruit Ninja app for my 7 year old son. After watching him slice, dice, and destroy the fruit, I asked him for a turn. I was hooked. Who knew mutilating fruit could be so fun? There are three different modes of play- Classic, Arcade, and Zen. In Classic mode you must slice every fruit that flies up on the screen, miss three or swipe a bomb and the game is over. Zen is a timed session that challenges you to beat your best score while giving you bonuses for slicing multiple fruits at one time or slicing the rare Starfruit. My favorite is Arcade mode, it is a 60 second round that challenges you to slice as much fruit as you can, but be careful because a bomb can pop up at any time. Slicing the bomb will take away points. Make sure you slice the "frozen fruit... read more

As Americans we love food. Even more, we love to go out to eat. It has become a pastime for most of us to go out to a nice restaurant at least once a week. Whether it is to socialize, be romantic, or just get out of the house; there is something to be said for a night out on the town. One thing that stops some of us from going out to a restaurant as much as we would like is the cost. The average person can spend around $25 a person to eat out on any given night. If you add that up that's a large chunk of change that could be in our pockets at the end of the year. But let's face it, no matter how tight our money gets, we still find a way to go out and enjoy ourselves every now and again.
With online discounted gift cards becoming more and more popular, we are able to take... read more
Amazing panoramic photos thanks to the Cycloramic Pro app by Ego Ventures! Most smartphones have the panoramic option built in, but the technology within this app surpasses most! The interface alone is perfection, with instructions, tutorials, and help available on just about every screen. The panoramic guide/software returned far better results than my smartphone, which only tells me to slow down or speed up! Featured on Shark Tank, another bonus for this stellar app is a hands free setting. Currently only available for the iPhone 5/5s (according to their website a Google Play update is in the works to add this functionality for Android devices), place your phone on a hard surface, touch a button, and the phone will vibrate... read more
We are almost finished with February and yet winter is still kicking our butts just as much as it was two months ago. The only difference is that now we are officially over it. The winter blues have set in and we just can't stand to see any more of that yucky white stuff or frigid temperatures. One thing I love to do when I am cooped up inside is snuggle up with a good book or movie and get delivery from my favorite restaurant.
If you've been looking for a way out of this horrific winter storm season, you should start looking in the app store...at minube!
Minube is a smartphone app that connects you with thousands of other travellers who are constantly sharing their favorite places to stay, eat, and relax! It works like a social network site, where you have followers and receive notifications when somebody invites you to join their page.
How it works is you post what you like, whether it's a text post or a photo, of your favorite restaraunt, site, beach, etc. showing how great of a time you had there. All of your followers will see what you post, and the... read more
I don't know about you, but I have to make a list before I can start to pack for a vacation or even a day trip. The free Packing List app, available from the Google Play Store, lets you create a custom packing list or you can use the master packing list that they supply. You can also begin with the master packing list as a base point and add or remove items until your list is complete. There is a suggested list for camping, skiing, and picnics as well as categories like toiletries, kids, and clothes.... read more
