Five Apps Worth Mentioning for You Wonderful Moms

May 8, 2011 No Comments

Happy Mother’s Day to all our WP7 moms out there. In honor of this special day we have comprised a list of apps that we think are noteworthy. While you are all supermoms and can manage without these apps, it doesn’t hurt to use them to make things just a little bit easier.

Big Oven

Take 170,000+ recipes (including your own) anywhere on your Windows Phone!

With over four million downloads, and one million registered cooks from around the world, BigOven is one of the top mobile food apps. As featured in the New York Times, Named “Best App for Foodies” by PC Magazine, “Best Apps for New Moms” by Time Magazine and “Best App for Eating In” by the Huffington Post.

Brand new app, fully native for Windows Phone!

Anyone can:
* View recipes easily anywhere, such as the grocery store or on vacation. No awkward cookbooks or recipe cards.
* Find new recipes to try — search by an ingredient (“chicken”), title (“lasagna”), or keywords (“spicy beef chinese”)

* NEW: View recipes in landscape mode!



moBudget is a user friendly budgeting and expense tracking application. It will help you drive and organize both your personal income and outcome budgeting. By doing so, moBudget will also hint you about possible budgeting and money saving opportunities. Its main screen features a summarized dashboard with a set of intelligent indicators which will tell you how you are doing depending on your budgets and on the current date.

Forget about grabbing a calculator each time you need to get any numbers or if worried about making it to the end of the month or not; moBudget will tell you all. It will either inform, alert or advice you when needed so you don’t need to worry.

By allowing stepping through months, allows to whether look back to see how you did on previous months or how you will be doing in the upcoming months, so you can fine tune your budgets to the optimal.

Take it with you, record your data and you will see how money won’t cause you a headache anymore!

I know I said this would be a list of five apps, but as a fellow mom I know that on a hard day you just wanna relax and have a nice drink. For those days I’m adding a bonus sixth app to the list:


Cocktail Flow 

Browse, find and discover cocktails with a continously growing collection of drinks. The application features beautifully presented recipes and identifies cocktails that can be made from ingredients in your bar. It also gives suggestions on what ingredients to buy next to make additional delicious cocktails.

The application is regularly updated with new cocktail recipes, the latest ones added include several themed drinks.
