Aww... BabyCam iPhone App

The BabyCam iPhone app is something that all new moms will definitely appreciate! When your child is growing, you definitely want to capture all of the candid moments available, and now you have that convenience with the quality of pictures taken by your iPhone. This app works in a special way because it has a sound button to play songs, drums, bells, and even doorbells to catch the attention of your child.

We all know how difficult it can be to get your baby to smile for the camera in a professional picture, but now you have the opportunity to interact with them to catch their attention for the simpler moments in life. You can also use the QuadCamera app to take up to eight continuous pictures of your child in motion, which is perfect when they are playing, running, or swinging on a swing. These are the moments that your child is going to remember, and you can easily upload them to your computer to e-mail to family members and friends! This is far more advanced than the days of an old photo album, and you can capture your child's earliest years easily and beautifully with this handy iPhone app.

Shape Up With This iPhone App

When it comes to getting in shape for the holidays, it can often require quite a bit of motivation on your part. And how are you even supposed to find the extra time between holiday parties, family gatherings, and happy hour after work with friends who have come into town? One of the easiest ways to get your butt in gear is to use the FitnessBuilder app on your iPhone!

This is a handy exercise app that has images, videos, and pre-planned workouts. This is something that is going to help you out if you only have 20 minutes to spare per day, and it will also give you the option to tone up within just a few days before the new year. This is a more expensive app at almost $20, but it is worth it because it is like investing in your own personal trainer. One of the main motivating factors of using this app is that it is incredibly convenient. You can carry it around with you anywhere you are, and you can also estimate how many calories you have burned over the holidays. This is something that will keep you in shape, even when visiting your family for Christmas!

Does Facebook Pose a Risk To You?

Unless you have been under a rock for the past several years, you probably have a profile on Facebook. You have also probably found that your aunt, grandmother, or third-grade teacher has a profile as well and wants to be your friend. Facebook is an incredibly convenient social media website, and you have even more opportunities to use it if you have one of the many Facebook iPhone applications available to you. This offers you the convenience of updating your profile on the go, where ever you are at.

Right now, there are 300 million users on Facebook, and that includes people from all walks of life. There are a few risks posed to you on Facebook, and one of them is who you accept as your friends. If you have accepted friends from work or even your boss, then you may slip up and write an update about how you hate your job and your boss, only to find out that you are in trouble at work the next day. Oops! On that note, it's also important to protect your privacy, with no-brainer information like your address or credit card number, to keep yourself safe on your profile.

Christmas Party Planning Tips

Christmas is upon us, and if you have family or friends coming over for the holidays, then you may either be excited or pulling your hair out due to the stress. I decided to look up a bunch of different Christmas party planning tips on my iPhone so that it can make your gathering that much less stressful. One of the biggest suggestions is to prepare simpler dishes so that cooking does not overtake your entire day.

Consider making a variety of different snacks for your family on Christmas Eve, or ask everyone to bring a different dish. One very popular and easy dish to make for Christmas that will make you look like a cooking pro is mussels with white wine sauce. You can easily pick up mussels already prepared from the grocery store, and you can cook them over pasta with a white wine and lemon butter sauce. There are many different easy appetizer ideas available for Christmas, but make sure that you feel confident in the dish that you are preparing so that it doesn’t go wrong and ruin your holiday party. Christmas is a wonderful time to spend with your family and friends, and there is no reason to stress out about planning your party or holiday gathering!

Do You Still Like Star Wars?

I found some interesting information when I was looking up the best Christmas gifts for 2009 on my iPhone. Are you ready? If you are still a fan of Star Wars collectibles and toys, then you may be happy to know that they are very high on the list for Christmas 2009. Even better, since so many people now have devices like the iPhone where they can directly shop online from their mobile device, online shopping is more popular than ever!

Very high on the list for the best Christmas gifts for 2009 is still Star Wars toys and collectibles, which may be perfect for the Star Wars lover in your life this year. If you are shopping online, make sure to search for Star Wars promotional codes so that you can get a discounted deal on your purchases. Many large online retailers also offer bargains for these collectibles, which makes them a perfect steal since they are often hard to find in store locations. Instead of scouring the mall and trying to find something for the geek or Star Wars lover in your life (only kidding!), it is much better to look online on your iPhone for some amazing bargains.
