Apps for Mom’s Windows Phone
Motherhood is a big job. Whether working inside or outside the home, Mom can take on multiple roles: event planner, chef, maid, chauffeur, nurse, teacher, accountant - and many other responsibilities. Thanks to great apps for her Windows Phone, she can juggle all these roles easier than ever.
So, in honor of Mother’s Day in the U.S., here’s a list of apps that Mom might appreciate to keep her day moving forward.
AllRecipes: Serving up thousands of quick and easy recipes, Dinner Spinner is a fun and useful app from AllRecipes with a great live tile designed for the Windows Phone. Featuring thousands of top-rated recipes with photos and reviews from millions of home cooks, this app helps Chef Mom get delicious and creative meals on the table fast. Pinned to your homepage, the live tile pushes recipe suggestions to her home screen from her favorite food categories each day.
Audible: When you have kids, reading is a luxury. But with the Audible app, Mom can just close her eyes and snuggle into a quiet corner and listen to a soothing voice that can take her away in stories from around the world. The free app features a comprehensive audiobook list, the ability to download from her personal Audible library, detailed listening stats, access to the Audible mobile store, and much more.
Birthdays Diary: Birthdays Diary is a great app for browsing and managing important birthdays. Drawing from Mom's phone contact apps, including her Facebook account, this app keeps her ahead of important birthdays and anniversaries with timely reminders and helpful birthday information, such zodiac signs and ages. She can browse birthdays by day, week or month, and connect with her friends right in the app, including Facebook greetings. Simple, useful and elegant, its live tile gives her a quick peek at upcoming birthdays and daily or weekly reminders right from her homepage.
Emergency Kit: A vital tool for most moms (who consistently face unexpected situations), the Emergency Kit app could very well be a life saver. Mom can turn her phone into an SOS light beacon, send out an emergency text message or email specific GPS coordinates, or learn how to treat a variety of injuries. Emergency Kit offers an added layer of preparedness and aggregates all of her most critical family information, including blood types, allergies, medications, important notes and emergency contacts for each of her family members—even if her phone is locked.
