Spring Cleaning Is Right Around The Corner

February 28, 2014 | by Tracy Lewis

Spring cleaning may be a thing that only our grandmothers did, but a clean and organized house can have a huge impact on your happiness. Washing walls, cleaning ceiling fans, and clearing out closets are not on the top of "my fun things to do this weekend" list but they are still things that I should do. Will I ever get to them? I don't know but I plan on making an honest try. I went in search of an app to help me because we all know there is an app for everything. The Spring Cleaning Checklist app is available for Android devices for free from the Google Play Store. The app breaks down the extensive list into... read more

Slice Like A Ninja... A Fruit Ninja

February 27, 2014 | by Tracy Lewis

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.

Cycloramic Pro - Revolutionary Panoramic Shots!

February 20, 2014 | by Casey Fox

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

GrubHub Food Delivery/Takeout App

GrubHub: Online Ordering Made Easy!

February 19, 2014 | by Michele Farlow

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.
