I'm kind of surprised at myself that I didn't think to post this one sooner.  I use TripAdvisor all the time.  Pretty much anytime we're on the road, TripAdvisor comes out.

On a whim, I bought Microsoft's Kinectimals iPad app the other day.  I'm pretty much a "if it ain't free in the iTunes store, I'm not gonna look twice" person but something made me shell out the $2.99 for this app.  I've been jonesing for an Xbox and knew Kinectimals was one of the popular Kinect Xbox games.  ($34 on Amazon, btw.)

The following post was originally posted on MommyPants . It is a review of a new iPhone/iPad app created by fellow Mommies with Style contributor, Ciaran Blumenfeld. My friend Ciaran, aka Momfluential, has a problem. She is brilliant. This is a problem because she has so many ideas and only so many hours in the day. Also, she has four … [Read more...]
