Spring is the in the air, which means it’s time for some spring-cleaning. This month’s recommended apps help smartphone users get organized in two of the places they need it most: around the house and on their phone.
When it comes to spring-cleaning, where do you start? If you’re like me, you need a little help and motivation to transition to organization mode. Thankfully, there’s the Good Housekeeping @Home app, which helps users tackle household cleaning tasks so your home is ready for the new season.
With a fun, simple layout that’s easy to navigate, the app has everything you need to turn a cluttered house into a clean, tidy home. The Stain Buster tool helps you zap the most common stains from fabric, upholstery and carpeting with short, step-by-step instructions. If you have a cleaning emergency, the app provides quick tips, or you can view an alphabetical list with simple pointers for dealing with everything from baked-on food to cleaning stainless steel.
Looking for decorating inspiration? The Home Decor Gallery includes hundreds of photos to suggest paint colors, furniture styles and accessory ideas for any room in your home. Use the News and Tips section to find articles and advice for tackling do-it-yourself projects and organizing your clutter-prone areas. The app also integrates with Facebook and Twitter, so it’s easy to share your favorite finds with friends.
If you have kids, pets or simply enjoy hosting get-togethers, take the stress out of maintaining a happy, clean and stress-free home and download the Good Housekeeping @Home app.
Smartphones make it easy to capture all of life’s special moments — everything from a baby’s first steps to a beautiful sunset or an impressive home-cooked meal can be forever memorialized in a quick tap or two. But what do you do with all of those photos once they’re on your device? Rather than letting them just take up space, use the Shutterfly app to share your photos with others while doing some spring-cleaning for your phone.
Shutterfly is an attractive, well-designed app that’s easy to use from start to finish. The app lets you create online galleries by uploading photos stored on your phone, or a Facebook or Instagram account. Galleries make it simple to share treasured moments with friends and family; plus, you can order prints or a wide selection of custom photo gifts. Simply select a product, preview how it will look with your photo and then place your order. It’s that easy! Your order is then shipped to your door within a few days.
If you’re looking for a fast, easy and inexpensive way to clean all of those photos off your phone and transform them into something you can share online, gift to a friend or simply appreciate yourself, I recommend downloading the Shutterfly app.
