What the Tech? App of the Day: Sweat

If you’re making any new year’s resolutions for 2020 you’re more than likely resolving to eat better, exercise more or lose weight. Each year those three resolutions are at the top of the list of most common promises we make to ourselves (along with saving more money). It isn’t easy though is it? We need guidance and motivation and time….

What the Tech? App of the Day: Gift List

Have you made your Christmas gift list yet? Have you picked out everything? How about wrapping? And did you go over your budget (if you had one)?. A couple of apps might help with all of those things. Gift List is an app for iPhones and Android devices. They’re not the same but they do have the same name and…

What the Tech? App of the Day: Project Foodie

If you’ve ever wanted to cook alongside a professional chef, you won’t find many more talented than Daniel Holzman. The celebrity chef of Meatball Shop Restaurant in New York, launched his app “Project Foodie” when his brother, a TV producer, kept bugging him on how to make his favorite dish.

What the Tech? App of the Day: Minnow

Every night the family decides to watch something on Netflix it’s the same routine. Someone with the clicker spends 30 minutes or more browsing through the titles.

One app that’s a bit different claims it will help you save money provided you do your…

What the Tech? App of the Day: Rakuten

There are many apps that claim to help save you money while you’re shopping. Honey is a web app that searches for coupons, Shopkick rewards shoppers when they walk into a store and CamelCamelCamel is a website that compares Amazon prices today with the lowest price in its history. I highly recommend each of those apps and websites. Rakuten is…

Ah, the elusive Mystery Shopper career. You hear of folks who have this job who get paid to shop at retailers then report back about their experience. Some of those jobs sound very glamorous and can pay exceptionally well with the perks of keeping what they purchase at the expense of the retailer. Those jobs are hard to find though,…

What the Tech? App of the Day: OurPact

There’s a time in most every child’s life where Halloween goes from being a cute night walking through the neighborhood with mom and dad, to a night racing through the streets with their friends. If you’re a parent of a child that age, Halloween might be scarier than a Stephen King novel. There are many apps in both app stores…

What the Tech? App of the Day: Turo

Would you let a total stranger drive your car or truck? I’d assume many, if not most car owners would say “absolutely not”, but if you don’t have a problem with it, you might make some extra money using a smartphone app and service called “Turo”. You may have seen an ad online for “Turo”. It’s similar to Airbnb, only…
