Five Fab Father's Day Apps!

Jun 15, 2013 12:00 am

Have you left it to the last minute to get Dad a gift? Bitsy has a great Disney app this week from Touring Plans for beating the lines.  Or check out these five fab apps for iPhone and Android!


iHandy Carpenter: Does the Dad in your life need a little help when it comes to home renovations? iHandy Carpenter features five professional tools including a plumb bob level, surface level, bubble level (my favorite), a ruler and a protractor. Available for either iPhone or Android for only $1.99.


Labor and Contraction Timer: A great app for those Dads-to-be, this would have come in really handy when I was labor. After the first contraction, my husband and I just panicked and called a cab to take us to the hospital!  We were a little early, but I really didn't want to feature in one of those stories -"Baby born in Holland Tunnel in back of cab". Labor and Contraction Timer has only one button to start and stop the timer, making it a snap for even the most frazzled Dad-to-be.  It lists the duration and spacing of the last contraction, as well as the average length of contraction for the last 20 minutes and the last hour.  Available for either iPhone or Android for $1.99

Star Walk: When your kids hit the inevitable astronomy phase, you'll be ready with this stargazing app. With information on over 200,000 stars and constellations, you'll be the instant expert. Available for iPhone at $2.99. Android users should check out the free Google Sky Map app.

Grill-It!: Self described as grilling inspiration in your pocket, this cooking app from Grilling Companion automatically updates when new recipes are added. You'll find detailed instructions and professional photos for Beef, Lamb, Seafood, Poultry and more. Availble on iPhone or Android for only 0.99c


ESPN ScoreCenter: If sports is the Dad in your life's thing, you can't go past the ESPN ScoreCenter app.  It brings you scores, news and standings from sports leagues around the world. You can follow your favorite teams, and create personalized scoreboards and alerts to stay up to date on the latest scores. Available for iPhone or Android for free.
