Thanks to my husband, on Christmas I became the proud owner of an iPhone. While I consider myself a techie mom, this was the first time I’ve ever had a smartphone. Why wait so long, you ask? Well, I couldn’t justify paying for the data plan when I work all day on a computer and have my laptop at home.
Secretly though I had always wished I had one because it would be easier to update Twitter and Facebook, and use apps that make everyone’s life a little easier.
So now that I’m a full-fledged iPhone user, I am embracing all kinds of free apps. I have a couple on there for my daughter Chloé, and a couple for me, like Gilt, Zulily, Ebay and Dominos Pizza. No judgments please. 🙂
I’ve sought out for some of the highest rated FREE or low-cost iPhone apps that fit my needs now. Here are some that I think could be helpful.
1. Grocery Gadget Shopping List- FREE
