Tens of thousands of applications are there to really help us enjoy our iPhones. It’s not too much of a stretch to say that the iPhone has completely revolutionised the way that we communicate.
Other manufacturers are struggling to keep up with the popularity of the iPhone and much of its dominance appears to be associated with the sheer number of applications that we can enjoy.
These applications run the gamut and allow us to do virtually anything with our iPhones! Here are some great iPhone apps that working mums should not be without.
If you have a new arrival, consider Baby Brain. This iPhone app allows you to log and track breast-feeding, diaper changes, sleeping patterns. It’s rather easy to set up and you can just tap the screen when an event starts and ends, as you record according to configured parameters. When you are breast-feeding, you can easily look and see which side baby fed from last! The app even has a timer which will alert you when you are breast-feeding; if for example you are working on a project at the same time.
If you are working on a budget, this one could be great – ShoppingPal prompts you to take a picture of an item that you might have your eye on, type in a few details – maybe the price, the size or other important details, and save for future use. Now when you comparison shop you don’t have to rely on your memory or rush back and forth between stores, trying to make up your mind. You know how stressful this can all be if you have kids in tow or have little time to spend anyway as you balance family issues with your work.
Creative minds abound in the world of iPhone application development. Set your iPhone down next to your sleeping baby with the app activated and if the sound goes above a predetermined, adjustable level, your iPhone will call a set number to alert you. Baby Phone Deluxe works great as a baby monitor.
How about Scribble Lite if you are on a road trip? This iPhone application allows the kids to paint, sketch or draw in different colours and, just like the Etch-a-Sketch games of the 60s, all you do is shake the phone to erase the masterful creation and start again.
Kindle for iPhone allows you to download full-length books and read when you have time. You don’t have to worry about lugging around textbooks, or those books that you have to “absorb” yourself in for a work project. These apps allow you to pick the work up and put it down whenever you need to, inserting a virtual place-holder wherever you pause.
Isn’t it great how technology can help to make the life of a working mum easier? Consider also specific coaching for women as professional coaching becomes more and more popular. If you have never considered online life coaching before, you will be amazed how it can make you even more productive.
