The iPad is the best gadget on the market for a reason. You can do anything with it: watch movies, write stories, draw pictures, but nothing comes close to the app store. You can get apps that will literally help you with anything. Women can get help with becoming pregnant. Men can check the football scores. But you can also use apps to help you around the house. There’s so much cool things you can download for your iPad that you don’t know where to start, so here’s a few you’ll probably like and will keep your home more organized.
Kids don’t really enjoy helping out with the housework. It’s not their fault because it’s not exactly exciting, but iRewardChart is a great app for trying to make it fun for them. It’s something like the star charts they get in school. You get to set the rewards and as they help you around the house they eventually move closer to the goal. Once they receive it you just start again. It could be a good idea to make them work for their pocket money.
No longer will you get home from the store and realize you’ve forgotten the eggs. With Grocery IQ you can write down everything you need during the week. Whenever you notice something is missing from the cupboard you just add it to the list, then when you eventually get to the supermarket you will always get everything you need. You could obviously do this on paper, but it doesn’t take a genius to work out you’ll probably lose it.
When the bills come in we usually just pile them up on the table and eventually you have something so big you don’t want to go through them. Once you receive any mail you can find the due date and add it to the app. When the deadline for the bill is approaching your app will let you know about it. There’s a few other good features as well. The monthly spending one if great because it lets you know where you are in regards to your budget.
You know you don’t always have a pen and paper lying around the house. When you want to write something down it’s usually a case of going around looking for them. With Penultimate you don’t have to worry about this. If you need work carried out you can just write it down so you don’t forget. You won’t forget calling your mom on Sunday morning ever again.
When you were growing up you’d probably see your mom with dozens of cook books lying around the kitchen. Epicurious have went around and packaged together over 30,000 recipes from all over the world, so you just need to turn on your iPad and you have access to the biggest collection of meal ideas you have ever seen. If those were all in physical books they would fill a dozen kitchens from floor to ceiling on their own.
