Make Mother’s Day perfect with these Android Apps to help
May 11, 2012 2:50 PM –
Last year, we looked at some of the Android apps to help you find that perfect gift for Mom. This year, we’re looking at a few more options for helping you ensure her special day is everything you want it to be.
Google Offers – Free – There are a variety of offers apps out there now, and while I’m highlighting this one, the same points go to the others as well. With Mother’s Day coming up, a lot of the available offers right now are all around Mom, from places to take her, to gifts, like discounted spa days, you can get for her. It’s worth a look if you’re still undecided as to what, exactly, you want to get her for Mother’s Day, or you’re still looking for that great deal.
OpenTable – Free – For many of us, part of showing appreciation for Mom is taking her out to a nice dinner, where she doesn’t have to cook, clean, or do anything except sit back and enjoy. OpenTable is the app tied into the Web site of the same name, and it gives you access to the reservation systems of literally thousands of restaurants across the country. If you don’t have a place lined up yet, this is a quick and easy way to find somewhere that still has open tables, and get it booked.
In the Kitchen – $1.99 – If you’d rather show Mom your love by cooking for her instead of taking her out, from Food Network, this app puts a wide range of recipes from celebrity chefs at your fingertips, including giving you ingredient lists, so you can plan and create the perfect meal for mom.
Floralapp – Free – Last year, we highlighted one of the options for sending flowers to Mom, and here’s another to consider. Sometimes, nothing says I Love You like flowers, and this app will help you send them easily and quickly.
Amazon Mobile – Free – This is a pretty obvious one, but for finding a wide range of gifts for good prices, Amazon is still the site of choice for many people. And this app puts all of Amazon in your hand, for quick and easy ordering.
Greeting Cards for Mother’s Day – Free – If you forgot to pick up a real card, or if Mom prefers digital, this app will let you create and send a quick eCard, letting her know you care and you’re thinking about her.
