Smarter Mom: Apps to Make Life Easier

It's been a long time coming but I finally, finally, FINALLY have a real smart phone (yes, I am aware it's not 2005). It's only been a week and I am not sure how I lived without one this long. I can send work emails from the playground! I can find out what the weather is anywhere in the world, any time! I can show Facebook the cute picture I just took of my kids posing next to a giant pumpkin, in mere seconds!  Seriously, I cannot believe the awesome.

Here are my favorite apps, and I'd like your advice for the rest:

My Fitness Pal: I can track workouts, calories, and nutrients to get a real picture of how I'm doing health-wise.

ParkMobile: There's a cute little downtown near us whose meters only take quarters....inconvenient, much? But they've signed on to this service, which lets you feed the meter by phone and sends you a warning when your time is up (my husband pretty much insisted on this one!).

ShopShop: A great shopping list app--and I can even email my husband the list!

Here's where you come in: I need a good to-do list app that will send me reminders of various stuff I have to do and sync with something on my laptop; I also want some educational ones for my kids (third grade and preschool). And, if course, I'd love to hear about anything fun.

What's your go-to app?

I use   I enter my appt. and things I don't want to forget on my calendar through and set up reminders for those items and cozi sends me a text message at whatever time my reminder is set for to remind me. There are also to do lists and other features as well.

I love gas buddy. And since I have an android, I love the amazon app store. You can download a free paid app everyday;) I've gotten a lot of cool apps thru them....I also like their cloud player too!
