iPhone Apps For Moms

May 6, 2010

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it got me thinking about mom and how much easier life would be if my mom had an iPhone. If she did, these are some of the must-have apps that I’d pre-install for her.

Epicurious Recipes & Shopping List

Epicurious allows mom to browse through 25,000 recipes in either a shopping or cooking format that breaks down the recipe one instruction at a time. Recipes are split into collections, such as weeknight dinners. You can filter by what’s in your fridge, what’s healthy, what’s in season, or browse by the type of dish, ingredient or dietary restrictions.


Vegetable Gardening Guide

This app is perfect for novices and green thumbs. It displays simple step-by-step instructions and illustrations. VGG includes information on growing seasons as well.


Fruit Garden

Fruit Garden has information on 22 different types of fruit and includes tips on soil preparations, planting and recommended varieties.


Landscaper’s Companion – Plant & Gardening Reference Guide

Landscaper’s Companion has a hefty price, but it packed to the brim with information. There are 1,400 plants across 16 categories, including perennials, shrubs, roses and house plants. Each plant is listed by its common and scientific name. It includes information about how much water a plant needs and how much sun/shade is required for ideal growth.


Authentic Yoga with Deepak Chopra and Tara Stiles

Authentic Yoga teaches basic yoga poses and positions for beginners and advanced yogies. It includes poses for tight hamstrings and hips and routines for balance, flexibility, strength and body awareness.


AT&T FamilyMap™

AT&T FamilyMap makes it possible to never lose a family member. Ever. Unless their phone is off. With this app mom can keep tabs on her family’s whereabouts. It requires a monthly subscription of $9.99 for 2 phones or $14.99 for up to 5 phones.

READ  Books I enjoy with my 7 year old


Pandora – Free Music & Radio

Pandora is a must-have for anyone, but especially mom. Listen to it while cleaning, working, soaking in a tub of bubbles or out in the garden. Just choose an artist or band and let the good times roll!


Coupon Sherpa: Free Coupons & Shopping App

Coupon Sherpa has coupons from a TON of retailers and it also lets you mark businesses as favorites for easy access. One thing to note: not every store will honor a coupon on your phone. The app allows you to send that coupon to an email address, so before heading out, I recommend printing it, just in case!


Amazon App: shop, browse, scan, compare, and read reviews

Amazon Mobile is great for browsing, price comparisons, checking out customer reviews and purchasing.


Mint: Money Manager, Budget & Personal Finance

With all the shopping mom takes care of, it’s important that she’s able to monitor budgets, credit cards and bank accounts on the go.
