Smartphone Apps of the Month- May


May is a great month for going outside and playing—whether it’s working in the garden or an annual Memorial Day weekend camping trip. May’s apps help you get your chores done and plan activities around any potential allergies, so you can fully enjoy the great outdoors.

Chore Checklist: Available on Android and iPhoneChorerev-01-01

When May arrives, I feel like my to-do list doubles in size. On top of all my regular household chores, I must now add lawn and garden maintenance. And with a busy life, it can be challenging to keep track of everything you need, or want, to get done. That’s why I love Chore Checklist.

Chore Checklist is an easy-to-use app that helps you quickly manage all your to-do lists—for home, work, or play—in one convenient place. The app lets you create daily, weekly, and monthly lists, which you can easily customize (and color code!) to fit your schedule and priorities. And you can set reminders to alert you when it’s time to complete the chore again.

My family uses it to track all of our chores; I create the lists, and the app reminds me when it’s time to divide and conquer the chores together. So now things get done faster and we get to spend more time doing more enjoyable activities. Plus, I don’t have multiple paper lists scattered around the house!

Chore Checklist really does make my busy life easier. No more having to remember when to fertilize the lawn, water the garden, or rotate the compost pile. And I get to cross things off my list, which feels so good!

Allergy Alert: Available on Android and iPhone.


We all know the popular saying: “April showers bring May flowers.” But with those pretty flowers comes pollen, which means allergy season and the inevitable itchy eyes, sneezing, and hives for a lot of people! Allergy symptoms can make for a miserable day—as I know from first-hand experience—so having a heads up on what is floating around in the air before you leave the house is extremely helpful. Thankfully, there’s Allergy Alert.

With a simple touch of the screen, Allergy Alert provides information on four different conditions: allergy (pollen), asthma, cold and cough, and ultraviolet sensitivity. The app lists the names and types of allergens in the air, which is really helpful when trying to pinpoint what affects you most. There’s even a diary which lets you track your symptoms, as well as how you’re feeling, so you can review the information with your physician at a later time.

Planning a trip and want to know if you need to take your allergy medication with you? No problem. Allergy Alert lets you easily view multiple locations and their respective allergen forecast for the next few days. So you’ll know which medication to pack, or not to pack, before you go.

With Allergy Alert, you’ll be prepared to go outside and play—and breathe easily while doing it!

      Great question Norma! If you have an Android phone, you can link it to your Gmail account, and you would purchase and download apps from the Google Play Store. If you have an iPhone, you can check your Gmail account through the email app. Thank you for the comment!
