A New Way to Give: Shopping!

I love apps that not only are useful, but make me feel good. The Real Miracles app fits the bill perfectly.   This app supports The Children’s Miracle Network, which is one of the leading children’s charities in the world that helps in fundraising efforts for 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. With this app, you easily find out more information about The Children’s Network, the children it is helping, or local Children's Miracle Network hospitals. Making a donation is easy: you can use your Paypal account or simply add $5 to your phone bill with just a few clicks.



Makeover Madness

A recently released app by Cactus Publishing, aBeauty Pro, offers women the opportunity try a make-up makeover without leaving home and or spending any money.  My first criteria for picking an app is a good description, and this hooked me right away!  What woman doesn’t love a makeover?  



Volunteer with Your iPhone

Now you can volunteer without ever leaving your chair by simply turning on your iPhone!  An organzation called The Extraordinaries is encouraging a new kind of social networking, Microvolunteering, to do good. (NPR's article on Microvolunteering) The premise is that you can volunteer your time anytime, anywhere, for just a few minutes as you available.  (no more excuses!)



Accessory Apps

 

I recently stopped in the Apple store and was admiring all of the shiny new laptops, iPhones and iPods when I was approached by one of the ever present Apple staffers. My husband and I were shopping for an new iPhone case for him to use when he runs, and in the name of research, I asked the young man what the most popular accessory was for the iPhone.

I was surprised when he answered “Apps. “ When pushed, he acknowledged that cases and car chargers are also popular, but then he reiterated that Apps were the most popular accessory.



The Science of Picking the Perfect App

It is a funny thing that has happened to me.  I have become greedy about the real estate on my iPhone.  Not just any app will do.  If an app is lucky enough to get a shot on my iPhone, it has to be special.  I have certain criteria that must be met before I will even think about cluttering my screen with yet another app.  



My Daily Dose of E!

I thought for my inaugural blog post, I'd share with you my fav app right now.  I wonder if there is an app out there that could decipher a person's personality by loading in their 5 most used apps?  (If there isn't, wouldn't that be cool?  Developers out there take note!)  Then I wonder what personality trait I'm revealing by telling you that I am addicted to E! Online.
