I love the Apple commercials highlighting iPhone/iPod Touch apps which are perfect for a certain type of person – business owner, student, do-it-yourselfer, traveler – which got me thinking…
If you are a parent, is there an app for that? The answer is, of course, yes! So, here's my take on the Apple commercial (with apologies to the fabulous copywriters hired by Apple).
VERSION 1: DINNERTIME
ANNC: Say you are a parent, and you need to figure out what you are going to make for dinner, using only eggs and frozen peas.
Well, there's an app for that (AllRecipes Dinner Spinner)
ANNC: And, while dinners cooking, you want to help your kids review their "sight words".
There's an app for that [SightWords Free]
ANNC: Or, you want to record your daughter's impromptu musical performance to replay when she brings home her first boyfriend.
There's an app for that. [iTalk Recorder]
ANNC: Yep, there's an app for just about anything. Only on the iPhone.
VERSION 2: GOING OUT
ANNC: Say you are a parent looking for things to do with the kids…
There's an app for that [Eventful]
ANNC: But then someone needs a potty and you need to find the closest available public toilet.
There's an app for that [Sit or Squat]
ANNC: Soon you need to find a restaurant that serves food your kids will actually agree to eat.
There's an app for that [have2eat]
ANNC: And then it's time to go home and post pictures of your adventures for the grandparents to see.
ANNC: There's an app for that. [Flickit]
ANNC: Yep, there's an app for just about anything. Only on the iPhone…
What iPhone applications would you suggest for parents?
