Tech-savvy moms know how to make their lives easier with mobile apps. If you’re looking for a gift that says you care, get her an app to help her save time, stay organized and be more productive. Here’s a rundown on some helpful apps for moms.
Your Personal Weather Report
Who wouldn’t want to have a weather report right in their pocket? Weather Live gives you up to the minute weather as well as a 7-day forecast. You can see live weather radar, temperature, humidity, wind and air pressure and receive severe weather warnings. Learn more about this weather app.
Your Personal Assistant
It can be hard for a busy mom to remember which child needs to be picked up at what time, when they have practices, when assignments are due, when bills need to be paid, and when you have scheduled appointments. AIVC (Alice) will take care of all that for you. This personal assistant will start apps on command, tell you the weather, the time, give you reminders, help you navigate, send texts and set alarms. It will also give you fun facts.
Your Closet Cleaner
Do have clothes hanging in your closet that you really don’t wear anymore. Clear out your closet with Poshmark. All you have to do is take pictures of your unwanted clothes, upload them to the app, name your price and buys will contact you. You can also find stuff from other sellers.
Your Personal Chef
The Big Oven makes meal planning and preparing a breeze. With more than 350,000 recipes, you can take your menu planner and grocery list wherever you go. Don’t know what to make for dinner, open the app and you’ll have instant meal inspiration. You can also see what your friends and family are making. Add recipes from your favorite sites, organize all your recipes and type in ingredients and you’ll be given recipe ideas to use up your leftovers.
You don’t have time to wait on hold listening to elevator music when you’re trying to make an appointment with your doctor or waiting to speak to your bank manager. LucyPhone will wait on hold for you then call you back when a person comes to the phone.
Your Mom Friend
If you’re looking for family-friendly places anywhere in the United States, Mommy Nearest will help you find them.

Your Song Identifier
Next time you hear a song on the radio and you just can’t think of what it’s called or who sings it, this app will tell you. Just hold your phone up to the TV or radio and Shazam will give you all the information you need to know about the song.
