Moms are constantly on the go with a million-and-one things to do so having an iPhone app to take notes, log what you’ll probably forget, or jot reminders (like for when for when you see an interesting article on “salads for younger skin” but don’t have time to read it but wana save it till later) is a great idea. Even better, having a personal diary that you can drag and add info to throughout the day is proving a must-have for mums on the move.
Evernote Price: Free Evernote appears to be just the app with multiple functions that allow you to make notes, add voice reminders, capture images, share notes and/or sync them to your laptop in the kitchen so when you get home you can see your daily planner on a bigger screen. Of course there is a premium service as with most apps, but the free version has more than enough features unless you wish to lock your account with a security pin so others can’t tap into it wirelessly. It’s also useful for keeping track in the cost of certain products or using Amazon’s integrated killer price comparison app which lets you scan a barcode to see if it’s cheaper elsewhere and then logging the price on your future shopping list.
Pinterest Price: Free Pinterest may have just reached its peak in popularity on the web, but for people – mainly women – pinning images and vids etc to their customized pin boards, pinning on the smartphone or tablet is still gaining momentum as new apps incorporate Pinterest. It’s a strange kind of social medium and one a few social analysts didn’t predict would take off, much like Twitter – but it has. So it’s great for taking a snap shot of a friend's new cut, or a recent desert at your local restaurant and pinning your interests for later viewing. The design interface of Pinterest is stylishly structured, which makes your boards all the more visually enjoyable to view.
Allrecipes Price: $2.99 Allrecipes is perfect for scanning through dishes you might want to cook for your partner or your family. Once you’ve chosen your main menu, Allrecipes then provides you with the ingredients you need to buy on a shopping list, and you can then return and get more help from the app when preparing the meal. Step by step instructions are sometimes available in video format.
Cozi Family Organiser Price: Free The Cozi Family Organiser is great for color coding family members and putting together their own daily schedule so you can see clearly who needs to do what, when, and where. You get to also put together shopping lists, family calendars and journals and to do lists. This app for mums gets great reviews although only one slight downer is that on the iPhone supposedly you can’t view the calendar one month at a time but you can on the laptop or iPad. Maybe a future update will follow.
Calorie Counter Pro Price: $3.99 If you’re a mum on a diet and you want to track as accurately as possible the amount of calories you are consuming, then don’t bother with any other apps for weight loss as this one really does come with teeth. You get to scan the barcodes on what you are buying and it will deliver the nutritional value. You can then set your target weight and the Calorie Counter Pro app will do a number of things. It will provide you with a target date and the amount of calories you should consume each day to achieve this once you’ve input your personal data. It will then supply you with multiple workout plans you can choose from to help achieve your goals. You can track your daily blood pressure, water level, calories consumed verses burned and a ton of more features to help you lose weight. Apps for weight loss are one of the fastest ways to lose weight today. Forget questionable supplements - $3.99 is by far the cheapest way to successfully lose weight.
