Last week, my husband and I were having the same argument, the one we seem to have every week.
It’s the one where I swear that I’ve told him about an important appointment he needs to keep and yet he is QUITE adamant that I’ve told him so such thing.
A few days ago, this led to frustration at a peak critical mass level. Sure, we had a calendar on the fridge but that’s kind of a useless when no one actually looks at it. This particular night, he had somewhere to be and I too had a clashing prior engagement. If only we had a central place to for us to share information at our fingertips to avoid this kind of thing right? Actually it turns out, as pointed out by my 16-year-old daughter, that there's an app for that.
So we downloaded an app that shares appointments, grocery lists and reminders. In fact it's worked so well, we barely need to speak to each other at all any more. I digress…
What it did make me realise however, is that there are probably a whole lot more apps for our phones that we don’t even use that would make our lives a WHOLE lot easier and enjoyable.
