Summer fun is in full-swing and the last thing anyone wants to think about is pet safety…but it’s more important than ever to be informed and prepared. Nearly one-in-five lost pets goes missing after being scared by fireworks or other loud noises, so this new pet safety app from ASPCA is particularly timely for the July 4th holiday and summer storms that are commonplace this time of year!

Including a new tool to help reunite pet owners that have lost their pet, the app provides step-by-step instructions on what to do if a pet goes missing, tailored to each specific circumstance and a pet’s individual personality. The ASPCA mobile app will also allow pet parents to store vital medical records, and it will provide information on making life-saving decisions during natural disasters.

This Pet Safety App features:

  • A personalized missing pet recovery kit, including step-by-step instructions on how to search for a lost animal in a variety of circumstances. This kit was developed by ASPCA pet care experts and based on the latest field research.
  • The ability to build a lost pet digital flyer that can be shared instantly on social media channels.
  • Access critical advice – even if there’s no data connectivity – on ensuring pet’s safety before, during, and after a major storm or disaster.
  • Store and manage pet’s health records.

Have a Happy and Mobile Halloween with Blurb Photo App!

Are you ready for a mobile Halloween this year? As much as Halloween is supposed to be about “scary,” in reality, it’s a lot about “cute.” It’s about kids AND fur kids in costume, creative pumpkin art, and way too much sugar for everyone involved. Halloween is a holiday of sights and sounds. It’s also about Instagram and TwitPics!

You’ll be taking photos and video that you’ll want to share that very night, but also keep forever. And, since you’ll likely be busy greeting trick-or-treaters, putting on costumes, and rationing candy, you need an easy way to capture the night’s events. That’s where Blurb mobile comes in.

Blurb mobile is an app for the iPhone and iPad that lets you create sharable online stories—and turn those stories into beautiful 7×7 inch books. What’s a story exactly? Well, in the Blurb mobile world, it’s a sequence of photos and other media you capture on your phone. It can tell a very literal story—with beginning, middle, and end—or it can be a collection of photos.

Just take photos and video with the app, or import them from your camera roll (including those saved Instagram photos on your phone). You can add captions to your photos too. You can even record your little monsters saying “trick or treat,” and attach the audio track to your photo.

Want a printed version of your story? Of course you do. Blurb’s Small Square books start at $12.99 for a 20-page softcover, and shipping is just $3.99. So, whether you lean toward the scary or the cute or some awesome combination of the two—share your stories on Halloween night on your favorite social media sites with Blurb mobile. And then in a few weeks, get a beautifully bound photo book that you can look at for many Halloweens to come.

Have a happy and mobile Halloween!

Find Doctors, Hospitals, Reviews & More with Free Healthgrades App

I’m participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Healthgrades. I received a promotional item as a thank you for my participation.

healthgrades app

When we moved to Florida several years ago, we were completely new to the area. We didn’t know many people, so we went through a lot of trial and error at first finding new grocery stores, car repair, hair stylists…even doctors. I sure wish we’d known then about Healthgrades, the leading website for information on hospitals and physicians!

Healthgrades has a free app for iPhone that lets you research and locate specialists, family doctors, dentists and more. You can compare hospitals, save and share info from friends, and set appointment reminders to help you better manage your family’s health care needs.

After finally finding a doctor we love and going to her for quite some time, she’s relocating, so I’ll be using Healthgrades to research and choose a new primary care physician. It’s got a feature to help you to find doctors based on insurance coverage, which is super handy! And I love that you can get access to over a million consumer reviews from patients. Great to get real opinions from real people!

Even if you are already happy with your current physician, this app would be really helpful if you and your family travel. You never know when you might need to locate a doctor while on vacation or traveling for work!

Be sure to download and try the free Healthgrades app to use for your family.
