The best apps for each stage of the cooking process
As I feel the first rumble in my belly, I instinctively reach for my iPhone—not to order out, but to fix myself a delicious meal. With an iPhone app for nearly everything, there is no shortage of cooking apps. Even after I did some spring-cleaning on my iPhone, I still have 2 pages of cooking apps.

Finding your way around Beantown means braving I-93 and Storrow Drive. These roads are quite busy most of the time, so the Magellan Roadmate app won't necessarily get you where you're going quickly.
The iPad and a few well-chosen apps help me stay organized and on schedule.
As a busy mom, wife, and techie, I need to stay organized and on schedule. My iPad has become an integral part of my everyday life. My desktop computer is now primarily used for synching my gadgets, backing up data, and large Photoshop projects. Gone are the days I sit in my home office for hours communicating, creating, and researching.
Ever wish you could make your own sushi for a dinner party or a more colorful meal than hamburgers and hotdogs? Teach Me Sushi iPad Edition can show you how. Does this video-rich teaching experience deliver the goods? Read on to find out.

Not too long ago, Apple started building iOS-powered devices with GPS capability in them. Immediately I knew that a menagerie of navigation apps would soon be flooding to the App Store, much like mindless pre-teen girls with a taste for wretched music flock to a Justin Bieber concert. Some of these apps are great, and some provide as much fun as using a cactus as a toothbrush.

Much to my surprise, GoGo Navigator is a brilliant GPS app that does a terrific job for a fraction of the entry fee.

Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi told journalists that "the rites of penance require a personal dialogue between penitents and their confessor... It cannot be replaced by a computer application."
I believe in recycling and I try to recycle and/or reuse wherever and whenever possible. It's an action and responsibility to help the planet that I have control over, and to be honest, it's not all that difficult to do. Sometimes there are items that I know need to be recycled but I have no idea where to bring them to. I found a Free app that I am trying out that helps. It's called My Recycle List. It's designed for the smaller screen but I am using it on my iPad.
Basically, you choose your item that you want to recycle and it will tell you where you can bring it that is near you.
