There's An App For That
We recently switched cell phone companies and thanks to an amazing deal, were able to join the world of wireless at your fingertips. I love being able to send off an email when I think of something I want to tell someone. I love being able to respond quickly to an email. I love being in a store, remembering something in the circular that I wanted, bringing it up on my phone, showing the employee who then finds the item for me. But most of all, I love having apps on my phone.
Right now my favorite is a game for Munchkie. It is so great, she wants to play with it all day long. The app is called "Where's Mommy?" and it's description is "The Photo Game You Create." What you do is take pictures of anything you want, ad it to the app and then record your voice saying "Where is <fill in the blank>." Then for the game the screen has twelve pictures on it and your voice gives the commands. The child then taps the corresponding picture and this continues until all twelve items have been found. I spent most of the morning taking pictures of everything I could find around the house, from food to toys to shapes to animals.
I have a doctor's appointment on Friday, during nap time in which she has to come with me. I am hoping that she likes the app so much that it will keep her occupied and happy for the length of the appointment. I think I will soon become one of those moms who can't imagine life without her phone. It keeps our lives together with the calender, updates all my contacts from my email account, keeps me linked to the wireless world AND entertains my child. You can't beat that!
