There’s an App for That! January 3, 2014

I’m a bit of a techno-geek ~ and I love the convenience of some of the apps I have on my phone.  For anyone who shares the love of technology, here are some that you might want to check out.  In the spirit of New Year’s Resolutions, you might find one or two that are useful.

Charity Miles – http://www.charitymiles.org

Do you Run, Walk or Bike?  If so, this is an awesome app to use.  Why?  Because when you do what you are already doing … you have the ability to help a charity.  Based on a philanthropy effort, Charity Miles is able to donate $.25 for each of your miles to the charity you select.  Daily, weekly or monthly – each time, you can select a new charity if you’d like.

MarEle Boutique Accessories:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/marele-boutique-accessories/id737776925?mt=8

If you like bling and accessories, download MarEle’s app.  MarEle always has great items at affordable prices.  Besides that, every Tuesday they have Party From The Couch (aka PFTC).  PFTC is a benefit for charities both near and far with 15% of the evening sales going to the benefit/charity/cause.  And to round out the hat trick on this app ~ owners Michele and MaryJane are just awesome people.  They listen to customers and take suggestions (even poll us on our likes and dislikes).

MyFitnessPal:  http://www.myfitnesspal.com/mobile/iphone

I’ve used this one and loved it!  It did take some dedication on my end to using it, but it was a great app to use.  Tracks the food you eat and exercise.

Fooducate – http://www.fooducate.com

Haven’t fully tested this one yet, but it has an option to Grade foods you are eating.

(Of course, not to be forgotten – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram … the lifelines.)

What’s your favorite apps, and why?
