Everyone knows that the life of a mother is not always straightforward and smooth sailing. There is so much needing to be done during the day and only a limited time to fit it all in! Thankfully there have been many technological innovations in the form of apps that help everything run a little more smoothly and take some of the enormous load off. Here are seven helpful apps for the everyday mom:
Rustle up something delicious with this app
The Annabel Karmel Family Cooking app is full of recipes and delicious treats to feed you and your family. It is a steal at £3.99 with recipes that can be completed by children from ages four and up to help them develop their culinary skills.
Keep on top of the family schedules
It can be difficult to keep track of everybody’s schedules, especially when after school activities are concerned. Using an app like Calendar All will help you keep your family schedule a priority and keep everybody organised! This is available from the App Store for £3.99.
Relax and unwind with this website
After a long day spent chasing after the children, the evening is the reserve for you to relax and unwind. Now is the perfect time to curl up on the sofa and enjoy a game of bingo or two on Coral’s mobile website. A perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of the day!
Share snapshots with loved ones
Grandparents aren’t always known for their social media presence, so it may also be an idea to use Postino. This helpful app is free to download, and allows you to make your snapshots into snail-mail postcards. They print off your designs and post them on your behalf, and all you need to pay is the postage!
Keeping the little ones entertained
There’s nothing worse than being in the queue at the bank or post office with a screaming toddler who’s bored and would much rather be elsewhere! Thankfully there are a great range of games available, such as Elmo’s World and You, which will keep them occupied.
Manage the shopping list
Trying to remember everyone’s favorite sandwich fillings on top of keeping track of what has run out and needs replacing can be a nightmare. An app like MyShoppi will significantly reduce stress and minimize the time you spend in the supermarket as it allows you to keep track of your grocery list and organise products by section.
