The Best Android Apps

I have a smartphone.  I am to poor to have service on it, but it was free and I am home all the time so I use it on my wi-fi.  It is SUPER!  Everything works except the phone part (but you can download nettalk and then you can call people, but they can't call you and it sounds like crap) and Skype.  I don't use Skype, so I don't really care.

I have WAY to many apps.  But some of them are awesome.  Here they are in Alphabetical order.

  • Alchemy - a weird game, but its really fun.  Well until you get stuck and give up temporarily like a have for the moment.
  • Angry Birds - you throw birds at pigs and try and smush them.  Its way cooler then it sounds.  Also try Angry Birds Seasons for some themed fun.

  • Bible by YouVersion -  best Bible app I have found.  Has interactive reading plans, works on the phone and the computer. 
  • Bubble Blast - you pop bubbles.  Four versions: original, 2, holiday, and Valentine's

  • CardioTrainer - tracks your calories burnt and how far you walked, I use this one almost everyday!
  • Diet & Food Tracker by Sparkpeople - track your calories in and out on your phone.  Links to online account
  • Dolphin Browser HD - when you download a free add-on you can visit the full version sites, not just the crappy mobile ones.  Sadly companies pay alot of extra money for mobile sites, but I hate them.  I don't know the add-on name because my husband downloaded it for me.
  • FML - its kind of a guilty pleasure, but there are some crazy stories and its a fun time-waster.
  • GeoQpons - save money at stores, use coupons without a printer!  I have saved 33% of a book at Borders and 10% off my entire purchase at Joann's using this app.
  • GetGlue - a time waster where you rate movies, TV shows, books, etc.  See what your friends are doing.
  • Movies by Flixster - find movie times and reviews.
  • OB Wheel - keep track of everyone's due dates.  Not applicable for everyone, but if you have lots of pregnant friends its pretty fun! 
  • Pink Pad - free and paid versions.  I only have the free version, but its pretty cool.  Doesn't show you a BBT chart until you upgrade, but it has the best widget, as well a community message board that is pretty active.  This is one I am considering paying for because it would be nice to take the charts with me on my phone to the fertility doctor.
  • TV.com - watch TV on your phone.  Limited selection, but some good stuff.
  • Where's My Droid - text a message saying "where's my droid" to your number from another phone.  Even if your phone is on silent or vibrate it will start going off at full volume. 
  • Wikidroid - sure you could just use Wikipedia on the internet, but this is faster and streamlined.
All of these apps are free, and except for Where's My Droid and TV.com I use them on a regular basis.

  1. I tried downloading Angry Birds Seasons last weekend right before Valentine's but it wouldn't work for some reason. It took me to Facebook and made me log in and never loaded. I just got mad and stopped trying. Now after the fact, I've heard of it twice (here and on Glee). I should try it again.

    I used to use MyCoupons a few months back and then the app changed and it started sucking. I'm glad to see another coupon app that looks reliable and has some good deals!

    Thanks for sharing the app reviews! I'm looking some of them up right now. :)

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…
