Imagine, if you can: You’re out and about, running errands around town, accompanied by your four-year-old. Things are going well until… she starts to do the potty dance.
First, you experience denial: “No, you don’t have to go. You just went before we left the house, remember?”
Second, you experience confusion: “I just don’t understand why you have to go again already…”
Third, you experience desperation: “Please just hold it. Please. A little longer. Please, please, please, please…”
Finally, acceptance: “We need to find a bathroom. I wonder if there is an app for that…”
There is, and it directs you to the nearest public restroom based on your current location. I haven’t tried this app, but I love the idea of it. As the tot grows, perhaps this will become one of my “go-to” apps, elevating to the exalted status currently held by Words with Friends and Angry Birds.
Apps are fun. Apps are cheap. Apps are numerous. Google Sky Map for star and planet gazing sounds like one my pre-teen would love. VolunteerMatch for finding local service opportunities might bring out the more altruistic nature of our family. And truly, how can you go wrong with the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app? These apps, and others, I’ve found through appSmitten, a free newsletter and website that shares information on the best apps available. They search through the millions of apps on the markets, identify some of the best, and alert their subscribers.
And yes, I do get paid to say that. In full disclosure, I am participating in an affiliate program with appSmitten and will receive a small payment for newsletter subscribers. However, I do use appSmitten to learn about available apps. If you enjoy apps as much as I do, this may be a service you would appreciate. If you do choose to subscribe, please help me out by doing so through my affiliate link here.
Thank you, and happy app hunting!
I mostly find new apps by word of mouth and from appSmitten. How do you find new apps?
