Faith-Based Apps

I have a few favorite Catholic apps, including Confession (No longer available), Missio, the PopeApp, the EWTN app, and the e-Votions apps from Little iApps. I also use the Magnificat App & Notre Dame Daily Faith app

Non-Faith Based Apps

My other “go-to” apps include “all things Google“, especially for email, maps and my calendar.

I can’t live without Evernote. I’m also pretty addicted to both the CNN app for live streaming and the TWIT app for tech related podcasts.

Guilty Pleasure Apps

I’d have to say my social media apps: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Since I work at home, I often take my lunch and coffee breaks with these apps – it’s like visiting with my friends! I’m increasingly addicted to Instagram – I just love seeing the photos of my family and friends!

If You Could Build An App To Do Anything What Would It Be?

Oh without a doubt it would be an app for! Our app would feature all of the awesome content from our contributors, but also spiritual tools for moms (and dads!) and some practical tools like shopping lists, a planner, a recipe keeper and other things that would be helpful to moms in their vocation. I hope this will become more than a dream at some point in the future!
