School's Out for Summer!

Students jump with joy and parents slump with trepidation, but the iPhone can help parents endure the summer break.

Long hot days, graduations, BBQ’s, vacations, bug bites, bored kids, and amusement park crowds…all a part of our love-hate relationship with the summer season. For Moms (and Dads or any caregiver), summer means that the kids are "free" from the day-to-day structure of schooling, sports, after-school lessons, etc. While a great time to be a child, it is also a potentially stressful time for parents. It starts off with graduation, then vacations, camps, and inevitably ends with back-to-school shopping. Here are a few apps to make getting through the summer heat a breeze.

A Day in the Life of an iPastor

A baptist minister manages his ministry and personal life with the help of his iPhone

I have found that my iPhone is an invaluable aid in my work as a Baptist minister. This article describes a typical day in my personal and professional life.

MantisBible6:45 a.m.—My iPhone wakes me up so I can take my son to school. On the way, we open the Mantis Bible Study (Free; mantis bible.com), a great little app that allows us to read a verse of scripture on the way to school. I really like the app’s daily Bible reading tracker, which reveals progress in your Bible reading.

Awesome Note

image



I found an awesome way to keep all my tasks and thoughts together.  The app is Awesome Note.  I could describe it - but the pictures below are worth 1,000 words. 

I wrote a review of Evernote a couple weeks ago.  That is still the best at keeping my research, recipes, etc. notes together.  What makes Awesome Note even more awesome - it syncs with Evernote.  It also syncs with Google docs - if you haven't jumped on the Evernote bandwagon yet. 

There is a small learning curve with Awesome Note - but it is very small - the video below will help. 

Bottom Line: 
Worth $3.99 - a must have for moms. I give it 8/10.

Evernote

One of my favorites, Evernote is available for the iPhone as well as Mac and PC desktops. You can write and save notes on any computer, sync them, and access them anywhere. You can even integrate photos into the notes.

Digitizing receipts with JotNot

Are you looking for a way to quickly and easily digitize your receipts for electronic storage?

JotNot for iPhone can help. Simply take a photo of the receipt, process the image with JotNot and then save it as a PDF, JPG, or PNG. It works with receipts, documents, photos, and white boards. You can then save your image, email your image or send it to Evernote.

Evernote allows you to share these digitized images with others or store them in your Evernote notebook. Evernote also makes it easy to sort notes or search for a specific note. 



Evernote

EvernoteHistory tells us that brilliant ideas are sometimes written on a napkin or the back of an envelope. Evernote lets you capture ideas as they happen, sync them to the cloud, and access them from anywhere. With the app installed, you can use your iPhone to create text notes or voice memos, or capture photos and sync them to the Web. You can also access notes and documents stored on your PC or Mac, whether you created them on your iPhone or not.

EvernoteEvernote is a superb electronic notebook Web service and application that’s great for storing Web clippings, e-mail, and more. I wrote about it in the first issue of iPhone Life and mention it again because a series of updates have made it one of the most important productivity tools I use.

Some of the BEST Things in Life are FREE

Many excellent App Store titles don't cost you a cent!

According to investment firm Piper Jaffray, the iTunes App Store could grow into a $1 billion business by next year. After seeing how many apps were downloaded in the App Store's first fefw weeks, it's not too difficult to believe that lofty prediction. The combination of an easy-to-use infterface, over-the-air purchasing direct to the device, and low prices encourages impulse buying. But even at $5 to $10 a piece, the cost of adding ffapplications to your iPhone or iPod touch can add up quickly.f
