Get prepared for this weekend’s holiday with Mothers Day, an app filled with helpful mom-related information, suggestions, and even jokes. The app gives suggestions on recipes you can cook for Mother’s Day, crafts you can make with your mother (or kids) to commemorate the day, and Mother’s Day games to play during the festivities.

Decorations, activities, party ideas and even jokes to help get in the swing of Mother’s Day are found within the app — it’s basically your one-stop shop for almost everything you need. Pick it up now, spend some time with it, and be prepared for a memorable Sunday.

Magic Piano (iPhone, iPad) Free

Yet another touch interface instrument from developer Smule is Magic Piano, which, as you might guess, turns your iPhone into a keyboard. Originally found only on the iPad, Magic Piano has been spiffed up with a few bug fixes and makes its way over to the iPhone for absolutely nothing. Snag it while you can.

Magic Piano is more than just a touchscreen synthesizer. It includes tons of song instructions that you can play along with, ranging from classical to modern pop music — teaching you how to play Mozart, Lady GaGa and everything in between. It also packs three different kinds of keyboard to give you options in how you want to play.
