(Not an) App of the Week: HomeSpot HQ

(Not an) App of the Week: HomeSpot HQ

This week’s app of the week is actually not an app at all, but I’m including it anyway and hoping the developers will create an app for their awesome site.  HomeSpotHQ.com is self-described on their site as follows: “HomeSpot is a free online tool that allows homeowners to manage home improvement projects, prepare routine maintenance schedules and record … Continue reading

App of the Week:  Packing with Evernote

App of the Week: Packing with Evernote

This is not the first time that I’ve written a post featuring Evernote. I’ve extolled (I don’t get to use that word very often) it’s virtues as an organizer of recipes and magazine articles. I’ve written about how I’ve used it to organize my knitting patterns. In addition, Evernote was the app I wrote about … Continue reading

Apps of the Week: House Hunting Apps

Apps of the Week: House Hunting Apps

I currently have nine apps on my iPad and iPhone that I have been using (a lot!) in this process of looking for where we want to live in Portland. Rather than highlight each of them separately in their own weekly reviews, I decided to combine them all into one here today. Even if you … Continue reading

App of the Week: Retinal Scan

App of the Week: Retinal Scan

Okay, so I’m not really reviewing a retinal scan app (I don’t even know if one exists). I am, however, explaining why I want one… for my husband. First off, let me preface this by stating clearly and for the record, that my husband is a bright man. He’s smart, freakishly Rainman quick with numbers, … Continue reading

App of the Week: HomeSnap

App of the Week: HomeSnap

I’ve been out of town these past few days, so decided to try out an app that I’ve been curious about but haven’t had much use for in my town. The app of the week is called HomeSnap and its purpose is to give you quick, basic information about any house you photograph. The app … Continue reading

App of the Week: Shopping List

App of the Week: Shopping List

This week’s app review is pretty cool (aren’t they all, though?).  As you can tell by the title of the review, the app I’m reviewing is Shopping List (from Recipe.com).  I had a lot of fun making my grocery list with this app last week and decided that any app that makes creating a grocery list … Continue reading

Yarn Along: …with Evernote

Yarn Along: …with Evernote

This week as I link up with Ginny’s yarn along, I’m not contributing my knitting progress.  Nope, I’m contributing a little techy tidbit that you will find super helpful in organizing your knitting patterns, etc. I find that when I’m visiting people’s sites and checking out their patterns, I often want to save them for … Continue reading

App of the Week: Bump Pay

App of the Week: Bump Pay

Many people have heard of Bump, a free app you can use to easily transfer pictures and contact information to another person simply by bumping your phone against theirs.  It’s pretty cool; I like it partly because it has a satisfying little brrrrzzzz in your phone when it transfers, making it feel kind of like when … Continue reading

Gimme a break!

Gimme a break!

I’ve done a pretty good job of keeping up with my self-imposed posting schedule, but it’s just not going to happen this week.  So, rather than spending the week putting out stuff I’m not happy with and feeling stressed about keeping up with my posts, I’m simply taking the week off.  Yep.  I have a self-imposed … Continue reading

App of the Week: Stop Motion

App of the Week: Stop Motion

Every week I like to come up with a fun and/or useful app to share with you. This week I’m behind schedule because… well, it doesn’t really matter. The end result is that Thursday morning’s 6:00 am post is coming out sometime later on Friday. Not the end of the world. So, on to the … Continue reading
