It’s that time of year when parents are rejoicing and dreading the back-to-school rush. Although overwhelming, parents can find relief by using their favorite shopping apps AND showing their kids an app or two to help with studies. My friends at Verizon Wireless mentioned a few that may help ease you into Back-to-School:
• ShopSavvy4 – a top app for parents on-the-go. This great resource allows users to compare prices both in-store and online so that you can find the best bargain on anything from markers to bedding.
• Kids Learn to Read Free – perfect for the preschoolers. This app invites children to practice blending sounds together to form, read and spell words that are all made up of only three letters of the alphabet, such as "dog," "sun” and "big."
• Flashcards to Go – ideal for middle school students. It makes flashcard learning easy and fun while setting reminders for learning deadlines.
• myHomework – geared toward high school students. This app helps students keep track of class notes, homework and calendars.
To make life even easier for the on the go parents & students Verizon has a great variety of hands free bluetooths! I was sent the following bluetooth to try out & love!
Jawbone ICON-The Thinker Bluetooth Headset
Jawbone ICON is equipped with military-grade NoiseAssassin 2.5 with wind reduction, the best noise cancellation technology that money can buy. Originally developed for use by tank commanders and helicopter pilots, NoiseAssassin is a proprietary technology that eliminates unwanted background noise when you talk on the phone. It gives you the freedom to enjoy quiet phone conversations in places you previously couldn't. Jawbone headsets are the only Bluetooth headsets with a Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) that literally feels your speech vibrations. As a result, Jawbone ICON delivers unmatched speech quality and eliminates virtually all background noise.
~ Jawbone ICON gives you the freedom to listen all your audio - music, podcasts, video, driving directions, games, applications, and more - wirelessly through your headset from any A2DP-enabled Bluetooth device.
~ Unlike any other Bluetooth headset, Jawbone ICON is intelligent and updatable, which means that ICON only gets better with time.
~ You'll love the convenience of having a Jawbone battery meter displayed in the status bar of your iPhone or BlackBerry. Second, when you press the TALK button on your Jawbone ICON, your ICON will tell you exactly how much battery life you have left.
~ Simultaneous Multipoint gives you the flexibility to manage audio and calls from two different phones or Bluetooth devices at the same time. With the press of a button on your Jawbone ICON, you can switch between calls on your personal and work phones.
~ Intelligent and highly stylish Bluetooth headset for communication and stereo music streaming (with embedded A2DP profile)
~ Simultaneous Multipoint gives you the flexibility to manage audio and calls from two different phones
