ITGirl0116 2OneDay—Instant Movie Maker
Oneday is a fun way to create short movies with a few simple steps. After opening the free app, you pick a question from a selection of story sets, and then record your answer. The app then stitches the videos together, adds music and makes a priceless movie to share with your friends and family.


Fooducate is a great app for anyone who wants to do more than just track calories. This free app has it all. Not only can you track your exercise and food intake, but you can scan over 250,000 product barcodes to get nutrition information and discover things that manufacturers don’t want you to notice like added sugars and trans fats. It is easy to personalize, and you can share your tips and success to motivate others within the app.

Heads Up

Heads Up is a hilarious game of charades, reinvented for the app generation. Ellen DeGeneres created this game, and you’ll often see her playing it with celebrities on her talk show. This app is well worth the 99 cents and is the perfect game to play with family and friends!


Tech Product: ITGirl0116 4
The Bobine iPhone Dock

Bobine is a cable, dock, tripod, and stand all rolled together into one useful product. This incredibly flexible dock is small enough to fit into your travel bag and strong enough to hold your iPhone in nearly unlimited places. It’s also built to last, and is wrapped with military grade, nickel-plated steel…so say good-bye to frayed and damaged cables. At $35.00 this product is a steal and can be purchased at www.fusechicken.com or on Amazon.
