Father's Day is right around the corner, at least in the US. June 16 is the day this year, and for that occasion, we've put together a list of applications for dads. We tried to be as versatile as possible with our selections here, because a ton of apps can be included on this list, in all honesty.
Apps on this list are mostly to help out dads in various situations, while you will also find an app or two that are here for pure fun. So, apps here range from entries that will help dads take care of a baby and set up chores for kids, to apps that will help them relax, and make a great BBQ for the family.
There are all sorts of apps included here, but before you start browsing, please note that these apps are not listed in any specific order, so just because one app is placed in front of the other does not mean anything.
Baby Sleep is essentially an application that is supposed to help babies fall asleep, and at the same time help their parents get some rest. This app comes with a great UI, and it uses classic white noise sounds (lullabies) which have proved to be effective in the past. These sounds resemble the natural sounds of the womb, says the developer, and thus create an environment babies are used to.
Shoppie is an interactive grocery shopping list. If you're one of those dads that go grocery shopping quite frequently, an app like this could prove to be quite useful. This app has over 100 colorful illustrations, and makes it really easy to keep track of what you need, and what you already bought. There are various categories in the app, including fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy products, and more.
Keepy helps you organize your kids' artwork, essentially. If your kids like to draw a lot, and you'd like to keep all those artwork in a special place, this is the app for you. This app comes with a memory timeline for each family member, and you can save both images and video here. You can also use this app to print your memories as Photobooks, Canvases, Magnets, and more. You can even include voice or video commentary with each memory if you'd like. There are some other features that you may like here.
1 Second Everyday
1 Second Everyday app is also an app that specializes in preserving memories. This app allows you to record one second video every single day. So, you can basically use it to create a 1-second memory with your kids every single day, or every time you get a chance to, and then create a montage after a while, or simply keep all of that as a memory. It's a great way to keep memories, and with everyone's busy lives these days, 1 second may be all you'll get on some days from your kids.
If you'd like to perfect your BBQ skills and surprise your family, HowToBBQRight may be just right for you. This application focuses on barbecue recipes, and it actually has a really nice UI, which is not something we can say for many cooking apps out there. This app is currently holding a 5-star rating in the Play Store, and the content comes from Malcom Reed, a pitmaster from HowToBBQRight.
Family Locator is a great app if you'd like to keep track of your family, especially kids. This app allows you to view a real-time location of Circle Members on a private family map, while you can also create private groups with family members. You can also receive real-time alerts when Circle Members arrive at or leave destinations, while it helps you to see the location of stolen and lost phones as well, which is an added bonus.
If you're a wine connoisseur or simply like wine, Vivino is an app that you should have with you at all times. Everyone needs a second for themselves on a daily basis, and a glass of wine may be just what you need. Well, Vivino is a wine-centric app with over 30 million users, and it helps you find out more about specific wine by taking a photo of its label. You can also learn more about wine, and also access community-powered wine reviews. Buying wine is also an option in this app, and there are various other features that you can access.
Beard Photo Editor
Beard Photo Editor does not really have an especially useful purpose, but you can some fun with it, that's for sure. We felt obligated to include at least one beard-related app on the list, and this app allows you to experiment with different types of facial hair and find the one that best suits you, just in case you're thinking of growing a beard or mustache. The app is actually really well executed, and you may be surprised by the results and options that are available here.
We've listed a couple of apps that help you keep family memories on this list, and Google Photos is in that category as well. This app essentially allows you to store images and videos free of charge, it does compress them, but you basically won't notice the difference in most situations. It's a great way to organize your pictures and videos into albums, and it has a powerful search tool as well, just in case you need to find something specific.
OurHome is an app that will help you organize your household, to a degree. This app will help you to motivate kids to do their chores, as you can set up various rewards and what not. The app also comes with a shared grocery list, and a family calendar, just to keep everyone on the same page. You can also send messages to family members via this application, and the design is quite simple and straightforward.
