March is Red Cross Month and it's a chance to honor American Red Cross's mission to bring help and hope to people in need. According to redcross.org, the American Red Cross is part of the world's largest volunteer network found in 187 countries. Ten million people learn emergency skills through the Red Cross every year.
The American Red Cross has developed several apps to help individuals and communities receive the best information from natural disasters to first aid.
These nine apps will help prepare your family, home, and pets with the latest safety information.
I don't know about you, but if I don't write down my appointments and activities, I'm sure to lose them in a deep, dark corner of my mind. To say I'm merely forgetful is an understatement.
Besides the Calendar app on my iPhone, the second app I use the most is Reminders. It allows me to set reminders based on the time, day, or location.
Fat Tuesday is March 4 and the Mardi Gras celebrations are already in full swing. Whether you're traveling to the celebrations in New Orleans or enjoying festivities at home, these three apps will help make the experience even more fun.
So far, 2014 hasn't been the best year for my family health wise. Three days into the new year, my son broke his wrist while in a snowboarding lesson. Last week, I was hospitalized for two days because of a bad reaction to a new medication.
Through these two health emergencies, I noticed something in common with the different hospitals we visited; they both used iDevices as part of their care. While using iDevices is nothing new to the healthcare industry, I still found it interesting.
If you've purchased a new iDevice, the good news is that you don't have to set it up from scratch if you are replacing an older device. One of my favorite things about owning Apple products is the simplicity in which transferring content can be done. As long as you back up your previous device using either iCloud or iTunes, your new device can be synced with all your content, including saved messages, email accounts, photos, notes, and other personal settings.
February 14 is known as the most romantic day of the year. If you want to win over your love and make Valentine's Day a success, check out these five free apps.
Besides the convenience, I think the best part about my iPhone's camera is the ability to quickly edit the pictures I've taken.
To edit a photo, go to your Camera Roll and select the photo you would like to spruce up. Tap on Edit in the upper right corner of your screen. Here you'll be given several tools to edit your photo.
The various edit options (from left to right on the bottom of your screen) allows you to rotate your photo, auto-enhance it, choose different filters, remove red-eye, or crop your photo.
I recently went through the horror of fraud on one of my credit cards. Thankfully, it was caught quickly, but it has been a pain to replace it and enter my new credit card number at all the e-retailers' sites where I routinely make purchases.
After reading a new report from Dashlane, a password manager company, I'm confident, out of all the e-retailers I use, my new credit card will be carefully guarded on Apple's site.
I love to add my photos to Facebook and Twitter, especially when I am on vacation. Even though I may get sarcastic, jealous replies regarding my get-a-way photos, I still love to share them. I also upload pictures of my kids for distant family members to see. Sometimes, I just like to share cute photos of my pets.
If you have an account on Facebook, Twitter, or Flickr there is an easy way to upload your photos from your iDevice to your choice of the social media sites.
I'm not your stereotypical woman when it comes to watching football. Instead of dreading football season, I sit next to my husband on the couch every Sunday watching the game, sometimes even yelling louder than he is.
This football season has even been more fun for me, since my favorite team is playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday. I live in Colorado, so take a guess who I'm rooting for!
If you're also a football fan and are as excited about the big game as I am, you might want to download some apps to enjoy the experience even more.
Here are five Super Bowl apps to check out.
