RunPee Is Almost a Pause Button At The Theater

Total Score:  27.5
RunPee logoSome movies are just so long that you need a bathroom break in the middle.  But, I hate to miss any of the action.  The RunPee app is what I have been waiting for.  It tells me the ideal time, tells me a synopsis of what I will miss, and gives me a silent vibration.  It’s perfect for parents or just anyone who feels that call during a movie.  You receive silent vibrations on your iPhone, iTouch or Apple Watch and know just when to run out for a little relief.

Waterbalance logoAs you kick off your fitness program, whether at the start of the new year, or anytime, ensuring that you get enough liquids is a critical step.  Keeping hydrated allows you to exercise more and more effectively.  If you think you can just keep track of it in your head, you are likely overestimating your intake.  Waterbalance not only keeps track of your water, but reminds you of when you need a little extra.

Apple Maps is a Killer App for the Apple Watch

Total Score:  29.5
Apple Maps LogoI’ve had an Apple Watch for about five months and find a lot to like about it, but when I tried the Apple Maps app, I realized this was a feature I could not live without.   I was able to keep my eyes on the road and get prompts for upcoming turns.  Combined with the phone, I heard audio prompts as well.  If you have a watch and haven’t tried this app, do.  If you don’t have a Watch, you can either use this as a reason to get one – or enjoy the features on your iPhone.

Google Keep Makes Keeping Notes, Lists and Checklists a Breeze

Total Score:  29.5

Easy Password Maintenance with Passible

Total Score:  29.5
Passible - logoLooking for a way to manage all of your passwords?   Passible (for iPhone or iPad) is an elegant solution. I loaded all my passwords and have used it regularly – if not daily.  I used another password manager for about a year.  I found it easy to add passwords, but hard to find them.  And, my previous app didn’t have the ability to export/import passwords.  So, all my problems are solved and I am an evangelist for this app!

Now Is The Time to Start Your Journal With Day One

Total Score:  29.5

Day One LogoDay One is  the Journal app you have been looking for.  It is super easy to use, combines words and photos, a reminder function and the ability to auto add location and weather.   I admit to having this app installed for a long time.   I just didn’t have the desire to journal or test the app.  One day, after using Loop Journal for a while, I decided to try to use Day One as well.  For about 30 days, I have kept both and find each to have their benefits.  Loop Journal prompts you to enter your thoughts on a specific topic, Day One is more free flowing.
