Shazam (Shazam Entertainment Ltd.)
If you’re listening to a hot new tune while sipping a much-needed latte at the coffee shop but have no idea who sings it, or hear a song during your favorite t.v. show and just have to have it right now, Shazam! Hold your phone close to the speaker and this app will not only tell you what song is playing but lets you download it to iTunes on the spot.
Simplify (Simplify Media, Inc. - $3.99)
When little Susie wants to hear her favorite song – again – and it’s not on your iphone playlist, all you need is a wi-fi connection. This app lets you connect to the itunes library on your home computer. Fantastic for long car rides!
From quick and easy dinners to gourmet feasts, this app provides thousands of recipes and reader reviews.
Urban Spoon (Wanderspot, LLC)
If your favorite thing to make for dinner is reservations, this app finds local restaurants with the shake of your iphone. You can also sort by cuisine or location. It will automatically default to your current location or you can type one in. Great for neighborhood restaurants and travel.
This is a great app that you don’t need to download – it’s part of itunes software. You can record reminders, ideas or fun conversations with your kids, and then email the files.
Facebook (Facebook, Inc)
Tell your friends how far along in labor you are, then post baby’s first photos. Update your status or chat with long-distance family on-the-go.
