I am a huge fan of apps. Not only do they keep my ADD in check, satisfy my curiosity, prevent boredom, and keep me from beat boxing in long lines and doctor’s offices, they also provide useful and easily-accessible information.
Here’s a list of my favorite apps, all of which you can find by simply searching for the title in the app store. Most of these are free as well. Enjoy!
Urbanspoon (for finding restaurants in my budget and in a particular city)
Mixology (for new cocktail recipes)
