Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores

Have I ever told you how much I dread shopping for a new cell phone or calling plan? There are a few reasons I hate cell phone shopping: Staff who aren’t knowledgeable about the products. Even worse, staff who do know their stuff, but who value their commission more than finding the right phone for me. I’ve been debating changing wireless providers for awhile, and that’s tough too. I don’t want to visit 5 different stores to learn about 5 different brands. But ladies – I’ve found a better way. Follow me, and I’ll show you the way to simpler smartphone shopping….

Magically make family videos on your smartphone in minutes

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting, to share how Magisto makes it easy as magic to create family videos on your smartphone. I received a promotional code for premium features to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

New app for smartphones makes editing and creating family videos super simple: Meet Magisto!!… One challenge that most of us ¬†as busy moms have is figuring out what to do with all of the million photos and videos we take of the family on our smartphones. {I have HUNDREDS of family photos on my iPhone!} And so many of my videos are just random clips, short moments, long videos where there are only a couple of fun parts – you know what I mean, right? Well – I have a super smart solution that you’re going to love, I just know it. {I’m crazy in love, and I’ve only been using it for a couple of days! It’s called Magisto – it’s available for Android and iPhone, it’s free, and it magically takes any videos and photos you give it, and edits it all together to make super fun videos.

How to Customize Your Smartphone to Manage YOUR Unique Life #MeetYours

“The phrase “working mother” is redundant.” – Jane Sellman… That is one of my all-time favorite quotes, and pretty much sums up motherhood for me. Every mom is a “working” mom, whether she works in a traditional job outside the home, is an independent freelancer like me working inside the home, or works as the CEO of her household. {Want to hear what other moms think about the job of motherhood? Comment on the Facebook thread.}

Moms that can do anything - mom humor

How the right smartphone can help busy moms stay organized

We all know that the key to managing the chaos that is motherhood is to simplify life as much as possible, right? Things like meal planning, weekly chore lists, and some really good daily routines can make a huge difference in how productive you are each day – and how stressed you are at the end of each day. So, to keep all those million pieces of your life organized, why not use your smartphone as that one central hub? A place where you can access everything you need at a glance? It’s the one gadget that is at your fingertips pretty much all day long – to it’s time to make it truly work for you.

Windows phone is a smart solution for busy moms

Right now you might be thinking… “Yeah right. I already have a {whichever iPhone or Android you’re currently using} phone and love it. I totally do NOT need to switch.” And I’ll admit that’s what I thought at first. I have been an iPhone girl for years, and absolutely loved it. No complaints, at all. And, like I mentioned when I switched to the new Windows 8 laptop last month, I don’t like learning new technology. But. I can honestly say that now that I’ve used it, Windows 8 – on my laptop, but especially on my new Nokia Lumia 920 – rocks my socks. What I love most is how, like the video shows, you can seriously customize your phone to be the exact type of gadget you need to guide you through your busy days. As you can see in the video – whether you’re a texter, power-app user, music-lover, social butterfly, book worm or sports nut – you can create the system on this phone that is perfect for YOU. And what could be better to help manage your busy days than that??

Why Windows phones are perfect for busy moms

How the new Windows Phone will simplify your life

Like I mentioned above – every Windows phone is one of a kind. Sure – they might be the same coming out of the box, but unlike other smartphones, you totally make them your own. To see some examples of how different they can be after setting up your own start screen, check out how Gwen Stefani is able to make her Windows phone her own, and see how Kerri Lee Walsh uses her Windows phone to keep track of what’s important to her while winning Gold Medals. And…. Check out my own start screen in the photo above! Here are the things that I love most:

  • The ability to have both of my main email accounts, and my fave social media sites, all available without even scrolling down. Since FB is my main addiction, I have it set to a larger size live tile – so it constantly scrolls through the newest comments and updates left on my page.
  • Awesome apps like One Note and AboutOne, that help me keep awesome to-do lists that I can check off each day and week, and keep things like documents, receipts, and other important info right at my finger tips – no matter where I’m at during my busy days.
  • Amazon Kindle app helps me keep on my reading – in line at the grocery, while waiting at the doctors office, or any other “boring” time. That way I’m always productive.
  • My calendar!! This is my absolute favorite! It syncs up to my Google Calendar, my Facebook events and birthdays, and more – to give me another live tile that flips through that days events and to-dos. SUPER helpful at reminding me in the morning what’s going on that day.

So… What could you do with YOUR Windows phone? Leave me a comment below telling me what your favorite features are if you have one already – or let me know what makes you excited to switch. And make sure to follow #MeetYours on Twitter to learn more – and share your own photos of your Windows phone!

Do You Know How to Spot a Dangerous App on Your Smartphone?

Have you ever heard of madware?… Doesn’t sound real nice, does it? Well, it isn’t nice. Not at all – Madware is an aggressive mobile adware that infects your phone, and starts placing unwanted advertising on your Android phone, in places like your photo albums, calendars, and even push notifications. And if it’s really bad, it’ll even go so far as to switch your ringtone to an ad too! Yikes. This is a growing problem, and can be a super serious pain to get rid of.
