Go on. Show off a bit.
Smartphones increasingly are the most common way we take pictures and shoot video, and there's no shortage of apps to make it easier to share all those precious memories.
On PicPlayPost's templates, users can post masterpieces to social networks and share them through email and SMS. You can upload up to four 30-second videos, which can play in sequence or one at a time. The app also offers customization options, including the ability to pick frame colors and even mix in songs from your music library.
So whether you're sharing memories from your latest vacation or snippets of your next film masterpiece, consider giving this app a spin. $1.99, for iOS devices.
Buy Me a Pie!
Save yourself a trip
Ever get back from the store only to find that your spouse or child was desperate for an ingredient you didn't get? Whether they needed extra flour for a papier-mache volcano or brownie mix for a potluck, it's never fun to have to turn around and go back to the store. Buy Me a Pie! lets users see their lists and update in real time. The app uses text prediction as you type and learns your preferences -- not that useful for items such as eggs, but one that earns its keep with things such as Worcestershire sauce.
The app also tags food items and groups them in an attempt to predict what ingredients may be near each other in your grocery aisles. The app's paid version ($5.99) for iOS devices lets you manage multiple lists and has additional syncing features with the service's Web site. Free for Android and iOS devices.
