Expect More – and Get it – With Target.com Apps

Total Score:  28.5

Target is one of my favorite stores.  I can always find what I need, and at a good price.  There is a store within a decent driving distance and they have a good selection of products with my preferred brands.  And, of course, they sell a lot of things so I can combine the effort of shopping at several stores with the convenience of finding what I need in one place.  This isn’t a commercial for Target, this is to acknowledge that having the Target iPhone or iPad app can save you time and help you make the most of your trips to the store or ordering online.

Sam’s Club – Using this App Makes Savings Simple

Total Score:  27

     We lead busy lives and any app that saves time and helps organize my life stays in my frequently used apps space.   Sam’s Club iPhone and iPad apps make that cut.  They offer a full featured shopping and list making experience, with a few bonuses – like recipes – in the mix.  I like a personal, in the store,  shopping experience, and never expected to find apps like this so handy.  Shopping in warehouse stores can be overwhelming.  There is so much to see and explore that you can forget the key items you expected to pick up.  With this app, that worry is over.

Penultimate – Best in Class iPad Handwriting App

Total Score:  29

I have been looking for an app that would allow me to take notes in meetings, annotate photos and generally help me stay organized.  I have tested a couple of apps that met that need, but until now, none that inspired me like Penultimate.   I started out my test enjoying the features offered – ink colors, moving between pages, cutting, erasing and importing photos.  From that point, I decided I needed to create a book of my own.  First I documented my New Year’s resolutions (if you write them down you are more likely to achieve them), then I decided I needed a fitness journal, and then I decided I wanted to create a life journal and I haven’t even gotten to the work uses yet!  I think this app will exceed your expectations and dare I say it, improve your life!

Read, Listen, Enjoy Overdrive App

Total Score:  29

 If you love to read, than Overdrive for iPad or iPhone will become one of your favorite apps.   You add your library, search for an available title, and download a book.  For my library, there is a seven-day limit.  I assume something similar exists for other libraries.   This is a great resource for the avid reader.  It is a green solution to driving to a library to check out books – whether you want to read one or listen.  There are certainly more books available to check out at a library, but this is a great way to grab a book from the comfort of your home. It can also be used to read books obtained from retail sites. Continue reading “Read, Listen, Enjoy Overdrive App”
