I’m always on the lookout for a cool app or website to make life a bit easier or more fun. Below are my latest findings.
My husband is the chef of the household. He is a natural when it comes to cooking – something I am NOT. I can cook, and I do like to, but I am the type of person that needs a recipe (at least for the first time around with a dish) and needs to have everything timed out perfectly. In the past I would use the timer on the oven as well as the timer on the microwave. The microwave in our new house for some reason doesn’t have a timer – or at least one that I can find. So odd. This is where Thyme comes in perfectly!
Pick the burner on the app that you are cooking on, set the timer. Pick the second burner you are using – do the same. So simple, so great! It’s available on both iTunes and Google Play. $0.99
You know how it is important to change out your toothbrush every few months – even more if you have gotten over a cold, etc.? I just read about this great subscription, called GoodMouth, that takes the task of reminding to refresh your toothbrushes! For a family of 4, it costs $13.95 (free shipping) to receive new brushes every 3 months, and with every subscription they donate 2 brushes to someone in need through Giving Goodness. You complete a simple survey, asking basic questions and you’re all set! I ordered my first set and can’t wait to get them! Check out GoodMouth… you can update or cancel at any time.
Want to get free prints of your favorite smartphone shots? Introducing an app that will send you up to 85 free 4×6 prints per month. You do have to pay for shipping and handling, which ranges from $1.99 – $9.99 depending on the size of the order. I haven’t tried it just yet, but the app is downloaded on my phone. I just need to get some time to actually pick out which pictures to print!
Are you a magazine junkie like me? Enter Next Issue – an app/website that offers unlimited access to over 140 magazines for a small monthly fee. You can try it out for free for the first 30 days and cancel at any time. There are two membership levels – one is $9.99/month and the other is $14.99/mont which includes weeklies. I still like to hold the physical magazine, turn the pages, rip out the ones with items I am interested in or articles that peek my interest. Check it out….tell me what you think.
I am so excited for this next website – Duolingo. You can learn a bunch of different languages FOR FREE! Choose the language you want to learn, create a profile and voila! You can work along with friends via Facebook too! Although I have Rosetta Stone for Spanish and have yet to use it (bad me…it is on my bucket list for this year and the year is not yet over!), I am going to try Duolingo for Spanish and see how it goes! What language do you want to learn? If you sign up, tell me and we can watch each other’s progress!
