Friday Finds: Apps that are making life easier

Friday, September 27, 2013

Before I got an iPhone (3 years ago) my idea of an app was a calorie counter, Ubersocial or Facebook apps that I used on my Blackberry. While these apps were fed my social media addiction, they didn't help me in anyway or make my life easier. 

*Cue angelic voices singing hallelujah*

My oh my how things change with an iPhone/iPad. Now if I download a non photographic app it has to have a point, it has to work for me in some way. 

So here's a round up of the apps I love right now: Personal Finance 
By allows you to track, budget and manage your money all in one place, so you can see where you’re spending and where you can save. Open an account, add your bank, credit, loan and retirement accounts and Mint will automatically pull in and categorize your transactions.

Kids First Aid
By Matthew Cook

This app is aimed at the South African market. The content provided is South African specific.

Your children are irreplaceable and accidents happen when you don’t expect them. The First Aid app empowers you as parent to have first aid information available to you anywhere, anytime. With step-by-step instructions you will be guided to ensure your child or infant is treated immediately for the most effective results.Features:* An interactive interface that guides the user according to the emergency situation* Voice guided walk-through for CPR situations* Uses the device GPS to provide the closest hospitals to the user’s location* South African relevant emergency numbers that calls directly from the app* Information on possible training courses brought to you by EMT South Africa* In depth tutorial videos on how to perform CPR and help a choking child or infant

I often find that navigating the ocean of apps that is iTunes a little overwhelming. I usually visit Best App Daily to check out new and interesting apps. They also have an app, but an app to tell you about apps is maybe taking things a little too far... for me at least.
