Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Father's Day weekend is here, why stick to the traditional gifts? If the dad in your life has a smartphone, why not tip him off to an app or two instead?
Don't stick to the traditional father's day gifts - your dad's tech savvy, he texts, he Tweets, he Foursquares - so why not hook him up with an app or two right up his alley?
If your dad spends more than half the weekend either working around the house or at the Home Depot, how about an app to help out with 'em both?
The Home Depot app is free for Android & iOS devices, and gives you all the info - and buy - more than 300,000 products they have to offer, right inside the app.
Buy with the app and pick up down the street at the store - even scan a barcode when you're inside the store to pull all the info on that item.
With the Grill it App (Droid here, iOS here) there's no more excuses for boring BBQ! Dozens of recipes for everything you can cook on a grill, along with tips for prep and seasoning. This has the potential to be the tastiest $0.99 ever spent!
The free COZI Family Organizer (iOS here, Droid here) replaces the white board in the kitchen. Since the whole family is on the go these days, this app keeps everybody on the same page.
You can also create shopping lists, to do lists for chores, plus any time you update this one it will sync the calendar change with the app on every other phone in the family.
If dad's a golfer this is a great addition to the Android or iPhone.
The SkyDroid golf gps detects your location on the golf course and tells distances to every part of the green from where you're at.
They have over 20,000 golf courses in their database, and you can check SkyDroid.net before you buy this one to make sure the golf courses close by are included.
Now because it IS father's day weekend, we can't totally get away from the tie thing! The MatchTieSuit app will help dad unlock the secret to properly matching his tie with his suit.
Choose from tons of colors, patterns, shirt and suit designs to make the perfect match every time. This one is currently only available for the iPhone and iPad, but they say they're working on a version for android soon.
