October: Top Android Wear Apps

Another month is upon us and what does that mean? New Android Wear apps to review! This month there are three apps in this video that highlight even more ways that you can leave your phone in your purse or pocket and do things right from your smartwatch. 

Mini Wear Launcher: With Mini Wear Launcher, you can access your apps easier than in the standard settings screen. You have also access to quick settings with the double swipe gesture. You can change the brightness of your wear device, change the wifi state, the ring mode of your handheld or make it ring to find it back! Plus, customize it via the app on your phone. 

Wunderlist: I'm the type of person that operates by a To-Do list every single day. This includes my grocery list! Don't juggle your phone in the store anymore -- just check each item off from your wrist!

Wear Tip Calculator: Leave your phone in your purse when the check comes! In three steps, you can find out the tip as well as figure out how to split the bill if eating out with friends. 


Stephanie Carls on KABB FOX 29 - Apps to Make Your Life Easier

Thank you so much to KABB FOX 29 in San Antonio for having me on Daytime At Nine. It was fun to talk about the top apps everyone should download to make their lives MUCH easier. I featured the following apps in the segment:

  1. Timehop
  2. Gyft
  3. Slice
  4. Postagram
  5. Wunderlist

Something even better with these apps is that they are all FREE and available for both iOS and Android. 

Here are some of the photos from behind-the-scenes!

Top 5 Tech Tools for Millennial Moms


Everywhere we look there are more tools than ever for Millennial moms to collect, express and organize their lives in a high-designed, yet functional way. For me, my mobile phone seems to be an extension of myself, a constant utility in my hand or by my side for just about every waking moment — the first thing I look at when I wake up, and the last thing I see before bedtime. Our phones are our No. 1 tool for capturing life moments, both big and small, and it’s an ever-present resource for our lives. 

A new tool or app seems to come out daily, but these five products and apps have been my go-to items for quite some time: 

Wunderlist app 

Being on the same page has never been easier. Wunderlist is an app that keeps me organized through projects all the way to the grocery list. The best part of the app is the ability to collaborate. Share the grocery list with your significant other and then no matter who ends up going to the store, you don’t have to worry about forgetting anything as you are sharing the same list.

Mophie Juice Pack

Taking photos, posting on social media, emails, and calls can run down your phone battery quickly. Having a Mophie Juice Pack will deliver 120 percent more charge to your phone so no photo-op is missed due to a dead phone. 

Postagram App 

We are always taking photos and sharing them on social media, but what about your friends and family that aren’t on social. Plus, who doesn’t love to receive mail, especially when it involves adorable photos of grandchildren? Postagram allows you to take photos from your phone’s gallery, Facebook, or even Instagram to send as a postcard to your friends and family. Each postcard is 99 cents to send. Easy and very simple. Mailboxes will be smiling everywhere. Check out my review! (iPhone and Android)

GoPro HERO4 Session Camera

The newest camera from GoPro makes it easy to capture those unforgettable moments. The camera is waterproof right outside of the box, which means taking it to the pool or on the lake for the weekend is easy. It’s the smallest and lightest camera available from GoPro, so it’s not going to take up much room in your bag. With the camera’s built in wifi, you can see your photos and videos in the GoPro app and share right to your social channels. (I even tossed it in the bathtub with our 18-month-old!)

Sit or Squat Restroom Finder App 

Kids are always wanting to touch EVERYTHING and the worst time for this is in a dirty restroom. Sometimes, beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to “I’ve gotta GO!” time, but with the Sit or Squat Restroom Finder App from Charmin, you can feel a little bit more comfortable about where you land. Named a “Best App for Parents” by Parenting Magazine, this is one app you can’t pass up. (iPhone and Android)
