barefeet

Wrinkles are caused by different factors – aging, lifestyle, diet and genetics. There are also some people who develop wrinkles faster than the others. Although there are things that you can’t control, there are also things that you can change with your lifestyle so you can prevent this from happening fast. Here are helpful apps that you can use.

SkinBetter app

This is created in partnership with Allure magazine. It is a free app that analyzes your skin and evaluates it using different categories. It’s an easy app to use because all you need to do is take a selfie and it will show you a black and white image showing brown spots and sun damage. Another image will also show if you have more than average amount of wrinkles. It will then suggest beauty and skincare products that you can use to improve your skin. It works on different skin types too.

Remove Wrinkles Tips

The app explains the causes of wrinkles and how you can prevent wrinkles easily yourself. It is also a free app that you can download and use anytime.

SunSmart App

We all know that too much exposure to the sun can hasten the aging of our skin. This is what the app is for. It lets you know when you do or don’t need protection. You can set a sun protection alert and you will be reminded of the times of the day when you needed sun protection the most. There is also a sunscreen calculator that tells you how much sunscreen that you need to use depending on the time of day, your size and the amount of clothing you have on.

Using these apps will not make your wrinkles disappear like magic. However, it can be your partner in ensuring that you and your skin are protected.

P1000546There are now a whole bunch of apps available today that can help with almost any sport. Just think of your favorite sport and search for apps for it. You are almost guaranteed to find at least one whether is it helpful or not. But at least in the more popular sports there are countless apps available and many of which are really helpful to improve your game.

One of these sports with plenty of apps is golf. What’s the reason for this you may wonder? It is probably because golf is one of those sports which requires a lot of training and has a lot of variables in it. For example, different distances you need to use different clubs, but if there are up hills or down you may need to use a different club. You also may need to use a different club if there are moderate to strong winds. So there are apps to help with everything golf. Of course if you prefer to do things the old fashioned way and use a golf training aid or a private coach, these may work too.

Golfshot GPS

This is a really great app which can offer you hints and tips with your golf game. This app has GPS information for 40,000+ golf courses with all the necessary information. Golfshot GPS will help you choose the ideal golf club in the right situation as well as give you all your stats about your golf game. Very neat.

Golf GPS & Scorecard

Have you ever lost your pencil that you use for your scorecard? But that’s ok right because you have a spare pencil that is until you lose that one too. If you’re like me, this has happened to you more than once. Try using Golf GPS & Scorecard. This app will not only give you GPS information that can be used on any course in the world but it will also give you an awesome scorecard. No more losing pencils.

Caddio

And finally we have Caddio. This is another really useful app especially for those who are playing a course for the first time. This app allows people to make general comments about courses all around the world and what’s even better is that it allows people to make comments about particular holes. So you can really get some good advice on how to play a hole and hopefully lose less balls.

Top 5 Apps Ever!

movie apps

There are so many apps available today and each of us have so many apps on our phones that we quickly lose track of what’s on our phone. We see an app then say to ourselves, ‘I really could have used that app a couple of weeks ago if I remembered about it’. I think that we have all experienced this. So what are the top 5 apps of all time in our opinion? What are the apps that everyone should have on their phones? Well here they are, enjoy and download them in the Play store or iTunes asap!

Google Maps

This is one that everyone needs in our opinion. It makes life so easy when on the go. You can find a store that you need to go to or can easily change your plans. Or you can get an attachment for to stick on the windshield of your car and attach your phone to that. This way you do not need to purchase a separate GPS. Google Maps will look after you.

Pandora

This is one of our favorites. Pandora has actually been around since 2000 and is still going strong today. This is quite a rare feat in today’s market as so many new apps are coming out each day. Pandora is a music streaming service which is really easy to use and to get playlists made up. All you do is enter a name of a song and Pandora will come up with a playlist based on similar songs.

IMBD

There have been so many times where a conversation was happening about a movie or an actor but you cannot remember their name. This is one of the great things about IMBD, they have all the movies archived there with all the information including director, actors, plot, and more. You can also quickly check out how so many movies have been rated out of 10. Must have.

Lose It Weight Loss App

If you are trying to lose weight, Lose It Weight Loss App is a great place to start. This app allows you to track what you eat which is awesome, even just seeing what you eat each day can have a massive impact on what you eat next. It also shows you how many calories you consume each day and track your weight loss journey. We believe this is a must have weight loss app if you are trying to lose weight.

Facebook

Most people these days have a Facebook account. The Facebook app is great for checking out what your friends are doing while on the go. It’s also great for killing a bit of time if you are waiting for someone for example. Great app which allows you to do pretty much anything you can do on your computer.

Worst Apps On The Market

contact

With the millions of apps available today, many of them are bound to be shocking and terrible. So bad that they are actually worth mentioning in a separate post. Not really sure how some of these apps went from a crazy idea into an actual app. Crazy things go through some people’s heads. So what are the worst apps on the market today according to us?

I Am Important

Not even sure where to start with this one. Basically I Am Important is an app that will try and make you feel like you are important in the simplest terms. It does this by adding important contacts in your phone. And depending on how much you want to spend on the app, they could be from cool sounding people to heads of large organizations or secretaries of state. It gets better, this app also adds in events in your calendar so that you look super busy and important. Hmmmm. I would suggest that you give this one a pass unless you want a bit of a laugh.

Funny Hand Dryer

This is another very strange app that is useless. And quite frankly, I’m not really sure if the creators actually forgot to add the funny part to the Funny Hand Dryer app. To explain this app, it is basically a poor quality image of a hand dryer that when you touch the screen underneath it, a sound comes on and it sounds like you are drying your hands. And that’s it! There is nothing more to this app and it has over 10 thousand downloads. Crazy stuff I tell you!

iAugment

Want bigger boobs but don’t want to pay for surgery? Well with iAugment, you can take a photo of yourself and instantly give yourself a larger bust. This app is actually intended for research purposes so you can see what you look like with a larger bust. However, your breasts will look drawn on by a child or a cartoon image. Basically it gives you no help at all for its primary purpose. The app creators really should have put in at least a bit of effort here. Perhaps some underwire, better shape and image quality.

Will You Marry Me?

Not sure if you will believe this, but there is an app to help share one of the greatest moments in your life. Your marriage proposal. And when I say share, I meant that the app will actually do the proposing for you so you don’t have to. Yep, one of the most special moments in your life could be taken over by a tacky app. So basically you give your phone to your partner and they get to click yes or I need more time. That is if your phone hasn’t been smashed by your partner by this time. I would recommend getting a really tough phone case if you are planning on doing using this app.

Bet You Never Knew There Was An App For These Things

Funnyy Apps

We are constantly surprised at the new apps coming out every day. Some of them are downright ridicules and others and just ingenious. Below is a list of apps that we had no idea that they actually have apps for these things and really never even thought that one day there would be apps for these.

Drunk Dial No!

This is probably our favorite app from the list. Drunk Dial No! Have you ever gone out on a Friday night and had too many drinks? Probably hey? But have you ever tried calling an ex-girlfriend or boyfriend during this time? Your answer is also probably yes. And if so, this app is for you. It is designed to lock your phone from calling certain people at certain points of the day. So next time you’re out on Friday night and want to call the ex, this app will save you from embarrassing yourself.

Bowel Mover

Yep, there is even an app for your bowel movements! Now we know what you are thinking as we were thinking the same. Why do we want to know what our bowel movements are doing? But in fact there are very good reasons to check your internals for signs of imbalances. So maybe this app is on to something?

How To Get Rid Of Stretch Mark

Bet you never thought that you would get advice for your stretch marks from your phone! Well, for those of you who are suffering from stretch marks, today you actually can. This app suggests their top cures for stretch marks which include home remedies, purchased products, and surgery options. This stretch marks app is actually surprisingly good, especially for something that we never expected that existed.

Paper Racing

Paper Racing is actually a game that you can play single player or play against a friend. And it is a very strange game. Basically you are trying to unroll a toilet paper role as fast as you can. Sound strange? Well it is! Not really sure what the logic is around this game, but I’m pretty sure that there isn’t any!

Annoy-A-Teen

This is actually a brilliant app as long as your hearing isn’t too sensitive. This app is designed as revenge to your teenagers who sometimes drive you crazy. Annoy-A-Teen transmits a high frequency noise which your teenagers can hear and hate whereas you cannot hear a thing. So you can have a little fun along with a little revenge.

Computer Training For Adults

Computer training

Let’s face it, computers are here to stay and will keep advancing quicker then we know it. There are many of us that pretty much refuse to use computers in our everyday life. But if we continue down this path, we will fall very far behind and even have issues performing simple tasks we do today that will only be able to be done online. These days even babies are starting to use computers even before they are off diapers. This kids will grow up as experts in computers and the way we use computers will change drastically. These are some of the reasons why it is so important to keep at least a base knowledge of computers.

So what do we do? Well for those of us who have basically no working knowledge of computers, there are plenty of computer courses for beginners in Seattle. Some of these are even free. For example, Seattle Public Library offers free computer classes for beginners that you could check out. They have friendly staff who are knowledgeable and friendly.

For those who are looking to increase their skills in computers or in computer programing etc, Seattle have several colleges and course providers that can help you with these skills. Business Computer Skills is an example of one of these providers. They offer different course options so if you are only interested in improving your skills in a certain area or program, they are a good option.

Health App

With our increasingly busy lifestyle, we need to find things that can help us save time. Anything really. Whether it’s a faster route to take to work or have an app help us with some of the difficult health stuff. Here are our favorite apps in the health area.

This is a great app for those who are looking for a workout. There are so many different workouts and at different skill levels. There are workouts such as ab workouts, full body, upper body, legs and booty. Another great feature is that there is audio with step by step instructions so you don’t have to keep looking at your phone to see what’s next and if your doing the exercise correctly.

Authentic Yoga With Deepak Chopra and Tara Stiles

This is the real deal when it comes to yoga. Learn from the professionals and use this app anywhere, whether it’s at work or home. This yoga app can help develop flexibility, balance and strength. It can also help you lose weight.

Daily Ab Workout

It tells you think like the distance you have traveled, time taken so far, how many calories you have used, and speed. The app also has built in maps so you can learn of new routes to run.

Fooducate

There are many things in the supermarket that we believe are healthy and think that we are doing good things for our body when we are not. Lots of packaging these days make products look really healthy and have pictures of nice and fresh vegetables on the front, but are actually really bad for us and have vegetable flavoring not actual vegetables. Another example is store bought protein bars, they are not as healthy as people think. What to do? Well try out Fooducate, you can simply scan the barcode of a product and Fooducate will tell you how healthy it is by giving you a health score.

Top Weight Loss Apps

Weight loss apps

These days there seems to be an app for everything! Anything from counting how many steps you did in one day, to a woman’s period tracking app (yes as crazy as it sounds), and then to weight loss apps.

Even with thousands of useless apps flooding the app market each week, there are actually a few good weight loss apps available. Here are our favorites:

Lose It!

This awesome little app is free! It lets you look up the food you are about to eat and track your calories. This way you may have second thoughts before you eat that ice cream. Lose it also allows you to enter your current weight and a goal weight and estimates how many calories you should eat each day. Pretty neat!

Fooducate

These days there are so many foods out there that we think are good for us but in fact are not. This is where Fooducate comes in and is a great app for when you are in the supermarket. Fooducate allows you to scan the barcode of products and actually give you a rating on how good or bad the food is for you. This allows you to quickly and easily choose food that is healthy.

My Fitness Pal

This is a neat little app, it starts of by taking your height, weight, age, and your weight goal. The app then breaks down that goal into smaller goals that need only baby steps to achieve. This will continue until you reach your ideal weight.

If you are not keen on using apps to help you lose weight, there are always the traditional ways to lose weight. You can eat more healthy, exercise more, have meal replacement shakes, or try one of those crazy diet plans that only allow you to eat a certain thing.

Either way the choice is yours, but if you are trying to lose weight, best of luck and hopefully one of these apps can help you in your journey.
