Best iPhone Apps for Moms

I get asked all the time from people what apps I like.  We have 2 iPads, 2 Macbook Pros, iPhone 1st GEN (Yes-that box looking thing), iPhone 3g, iPhone 4gs, 2 iPods...yadda yadda. (YES.  I have an addiction and need therapy for my love of gadgets. Baby steps people!!!)  I know.  Sadly, I don't know how to refurb our old stuff and they either break or are outdated or AT&T calls me dangling the 'new phone' carrot in my face.

Either way. We love apps in our house!  

Since Boston was 1 he could use my iphone.  (That's nuts, isn't it???)  So here are my pics of the:

Best iPhone Apps for Moms

MAGIC HOUR

Sooooo many people in the iPhone/iPad addicted world are so in love with Instagram.  Well, I hate to brake it to them-but Magic Hour is the BOMMMB!  I say this app is 500x better than Instagram.  And the best part?  When you share your pic with this app you can share it to Instagram.  =)  This is my go to app for every photo I take.

DESCRIPTION:  Magic Hour is an app that can transform your ordinary photos to extraordinary ones. It will give you a fun experience you've never had. 

MOM MAPS

This has been a great go-to app for me when we're out of town.  It's actually created by a mom blogger.  I don't even remember where I heard about it from...but I'm so glad I did!  Any kind of getaway, park, YOU NAME IT!!

DESCRIPTION: Looking for a great play date place? Need to find indoor fun on a rainy day or a nearby playground when you're on the road? Mom Maps (Premium) lets you tap the collective wisdom of parents everywhere to find kid-friendly fun when you need it. Search our extensive list of parks, playgrounds, restaurants, museums and indoor play areas, as well as reviews by parents, for parents. We also partner with top parent bloggers and family travel experts to bring you their top kid-friendly picks.  

PINTEREST

Just like when Twitter came out in '07-I didn't 'get it'...I was the same with Pinterest.  Um.  But just a little learning and I'm HOOKED!  I LOVE wasting time looking at dream vacations or decorating ideas.  You find something you like?  You PIN it!

DESCRIPTION: Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. It lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find in your life. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.  Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

ANIMATCH

My FAVE game to play with Boston.  My husband actually gets in on this one.  I love any type of match game.  And the cute characters and sound on this one rocks!

DESCRIPTION: AniMatch will keep your kids educationally entertained, all the while developing their concentration, memory, and cognitive skills, and teaching them what sounds animals make. AniMatch will also keep your kids quiet while they play it again, and again, and again.... right when you need that much-needed break in a restaurant, on a plane, or in a car. 

PAPER TOSS

I can honestly say I've NEVER played this game.  But my son has been playing it since he was like 1 1/2!!  (Amazing what kids can do with electronics now a days!)  BE WARNED: We were in a doc office and he was playing it one time and I hear 'Hey you knocked over my beer!'  I about died as everyone totally glared at me like I was some drunk mom allowing my kid in a bar.  Eh.  

DESCRIPTION:  Have you ever been bored at work, crumpled up a piece of paper and counted how many times you can make it in a small trash can? Has your boss ever gone out for a quick bite while you and your co-workers see how far you can move the trash can away and still make the paper shot? Have you ever brought in electric fans to make the shot even harder? Backflip Studios is happy to announce that we have brought this amazing and hilarious experience to the iPhone. 

WORDS WITH FRIENDS

If you hadn't heard of this game-you have to have been stuck under a rock!! ha. Play against your friends in the Scrabble like game.  Just be sure to turn off your phone and game while in a plane preparing for landing or takeoff.  You might just get kicked off.

DESCRIPTION:  Experience for yourself why more than 20 million people are addicted to the word building, triple score seeking, chat bubble sending goodness of Words With Friends.

SMACK TALK

This is probably the most mindless game ever!!  Seriously. It's funny though.  If you want your kid to laugh hysterically for hours.  Let them annoy you with this app.  I actually enjoy pestering my dog Rocky with it.  He FREAKS out when this little chihuahua tells him to 'sit Rocky-sit!'.

DESCRIPTION:  SmackTalk! is the original voice-altering app that features an animated guinea pig, puppy, kitten, and chihuahua that repeat what you say in high-pitched squeaky and now low-pitched freaky voices *in real-time* for hours of hilarious laughter. Works in every language!
