Evernote

Ever get to the grocery and know you are forgetting 2 or 3 items that you need? Or worse you’ve made a list, but it is at home on the counter. Then, this is the app for you. The most helpful feature of the paid version is the synchronization across multiple users and devices.  Your significant other or roommate can see what is on the list and pick it up, or make requests, depending on who is getting groceries that week.

Just for Fun
Camera+
Have you ever been frustrated with the quality of the photos on your iphone or iPad camera? If the answer is yes, then, you seriously need to check out this app. It gives you the ability to selectively focus an image, similar to the depth of field adjustments you can do on with a SLR camera. It does so much, it is a bit overwhelming and be advised there is a learning curve. It’s worth it though.
