iPhone Apps

Well, you had to know this was coming!

I've had my iPhone for a little bit now, and with the way that is me, have dived into it 100%

First recommendation would be the Blogger app, as without it I would not be typing this post!

Here's more reccs:

APPS

Meal Builder Pro - This is a meal planner, recipe storer and shopping list. I had tried out Plan To Eat which has a mobile version (not an app) but this is American based and has problems calculating metric equivalents. That for $40 a year just wasn't worth it. Meal Builder Pro is my replacement and a lot cheaper and is Australian based.

Ireconcile - this is a simple app. I am using it to keep an eye on our accounts. This especially helps with the misc outstanding transactions that appear that you end up having no idea what they are for.

ShoppingList - A simple list app with a few fantastic features. Has the ability to email or SMS list to others

HomeBudget - is a full app. Has expenses, budgets and anything you can think of. All these types are pretty similar with features, so the difference is just in the layout and handling

BillTracker - does obviously what you would think! You can enter account payee details, numbers and a whole bunch of other info

HouseKeeper - this tracks issues for home owners. For instance right now we have stumps needing to be replaced and chimney top welding. You can add photos to track an issue over time. I am using it to remind me on top need repairs, to call for quotes etc

Homekeeper - not to be confused with housekeeper above. Home keeper helps you keep track of all those pesky house maintenance items that need to be done. Everything from fertilizing the lawn to repairs to aircon. Has a large pre-entered list you can add or add your own.

Momo 2011 -this is a yearly app, pre-filled (but you can edit) for items you may forget to do. It's set up as a daily checklist. Items like change the dishtowel to wipe the fridge down etc. It by Motivated Moms.

HomeRoutine - think of it as a shiny sparkly FlyLady journal. It for cleaning and "zones". I love it, I never succeeded with FlyLady herself as it's too much paperwork time and confusion. HomeRoutine is absolutely brilliant!

Your bank - not actually called that so don't go searching. Just a little reminder if you do online banking don't forget to check to see if your particular bank has an app.

ChorePad - is a digital version of this pretty reward charts. You add chores, star they are worth, rewards, and the children ( or husband lol) then assign and go forth!

Logfrog - Diabetes app. I gave this, but haven't used it fully yet. I like that it more aimed at type 1 diabetes for kids. It records levels, insulin exercise and something else I can't remember lol

Period Tracker - I love this app! Obviously it does as titled. It also tracks when your intimate, your mood, ovulation and side effects. It's quite discreet as an app too. Just listed as P tracker with a little flower logo

Gardenate - Tells you what to plant when. It has zones for multiple regions of Australia and overseas

MyMarketsVic - I actually literally just downloaded this so I can't give feedback. It is supposed to be markets listing for Victoria, however, I usually find things like these mean for Melbourne, not Victoria, but I'll see how I go.

Occasions - is an event reminder system for holidays, birthdays and anniversaries. I sorely needed something like this, and will probably get a gift app too.

Yates - is a garden problem Solver, for weeds and pests. I was hoping it would tell me what to so with those evil weeds in the backyard that set me off into itches, since I can't get near 'em and have dogs, other than using explosives, hopefully it will give me some natural solution, but I think this may be another app just advising to fill your garden with chemicals lol.

Okay takes a litlle longer to type on iPhone and I Now have an overtensed index, so I will cut this short and bring you part 2 - games in the next post.

@ Bright Sky Mom - I haven't actually tried Pocket Frogs! I will have a look for it. We were originally hoping to snag 3 cheap ipads from eBay, but none are going cheap. So my plan is to get one, and hopefully let them share. I also need it for viewing pdf's in colour. My kindle is only in black & white, and not so good for childrens books :) Thank you for commenting!
