Eight great iPhone apps for Mother's Day

Is your mom addicted to social media? If so, check out the Mother’s Day Cards and Frames app ($1.99). This iPhone app let’s you create a custom Mother’s Day card by accessing your mom’s photos on her Facebook page or from your library. Then, you can post the card on her wall or print out the actual card. It’s really easy, so you can do it to honor all your family and friends who are mothers.
If you have more time on your hands, check out the ScrAPPbook app (99 cents) and build a virtual scrapbook for your mom, including photos, videos and sound. You can even share the scrapbook on her Facebook page. What better way to pay tribute to Mother Earth than by going green, and your mom by gifting her with memories?

Modern MomThe free Modern Mom app is a companion to the magazine and website of the same name. Started by an actress and mother of four, Brooke Burke, and a partner, the goal of Modern Mom is to help moms find balance, relevance and consciousness, and offer resources in one convenient location. The app is filled with videos and articles, as well as a Twitter feed filled with savvy info from modern moms everywhere
Apps for busy moms
Playground Pump The Workout - Chris RauchnotThe Playground Pump the Workout by Chris Rauchnot iPhone app ($2.99) lets busy moms get their workout done while the kids play. The app is filled with comprehensive workouts utilizing your own body weight and playground equipment. A handy tool to generate random exercise cards keeps your workouts fresh.

The Bank of Mom app ($1.99) gives moms with multiple children a way to keep track of allowances. Start an account for each child and enter in activities for which they earn more money or instances where they’ve spent their money. It’s a virtual allowance bank you can take with you wherever you go.

Intuition: Mom's Personal AssistantThe free Intuition: Mom’s Personal Assistant iPhone app is a really cool and interactive to-do list for busy moms on the go. Keep track of tasks by category including calls, errands, grocery shopping, wish lists, family activities and more. My favorite part is the "Tasks by Location," which shows you if you are near, say the dry cleaner, if you need to pick something up while you are out and about town. Never forget to pick up a kid from soccer practice again!

Apps for moms to be

Pimp My Ultrasound/Baby Picture--Entertainment 4 expecting mom (s) and dad (s)This app is a little silly, but it is worth downloading just to see the smile on her face. For moms-to-be, check out the free Pimp My Ultrasound app. Add a Dr. Seuss style hat, sunglasses and more to your unborn baby’s first picture. Then share it with the world on your Facebook page.

The free Hello Baby – Pregnancy Calendar iPad app by Pampers not only shows you the typical development of a baby by weeks, but also shows pictures of what her thriving fetus might look like at all stages. The cool part is you can hold it up to her tummy to get a look at what the baby looks like at different stages throughout her pregnancy.
