A place for 2 – Twyxt iPhone App

The beginning of my relationship with my husband was spent getting to know each other via email and instant messaging.

Fast forward 14 years and for the most part we rely on text messaging, extremely brief phone calls and Facebook posts to stay connected when we are apart.

We rely on technology heavily to keep the communication flowing and also stay organized. With 2 very active kids sometimes we don’t know whether we are coming or going.

I’ve even resorted to taking screenshots of those text messages that are just to great to get rid of because they are sweet, funny, and/or truly showcase the depth of our personality as a couple.

While our current way of connection works it would be nice to have a one stop for all the to-do lists, calendars, pictures, etc.

twyxt iphone appThat’s where Twyxt comes in.

The best part is it’s a private and useful app that allows us, as a couple, to share our life together in a whole new way.

So, here the thing. The features of Twyxt basically combines many of the apps I currently have on my phone and that I utilize with the hubs. But instead of opening and updating 3-5 bits of information, I can do it all within the Twyxt app.

Twyxt includes the following features:

It’s About One place to organize..

A couple years ago a friend of mine lost her house to a fire. Thankfully, no one was home at the time, however they lost ALL of their belongings.

Family photos, keepsakes, treasures. Gone.

Once the initial devastation passed, the family was tasked with trying to create a list of all the items in the house for insurance purposes. Now, they had made a list itemizing most of their belongings for insurance purposes but had never given it to their agent and since it was in a folder in the house, it literally went up in smoke.

If only they could have had all that information stored online they could have had access to it anytime, from anywhere. That’s where About One can help.

Holiday Gift Guide 2011- Nomad Brush for iPad is perfect for budding artists

holiday gift guideMy daughter loves to draw.

Really loves to draw.

So much so, in fact, that I had to move my printer in my office to a high shelf so that she couldn’t reach the printer paper. The girl could go through a whole ream of paper in about 3 days I think. It’s also her love for drawing that has required me to stock up on crayons, colored pencils, and even markers during back to school time to last her throughout the whole year.

nomad playThis is why I was so excited when we got the opportunity to try out Nomad Play. It’s a paintbrush stylus for the iPad that is designed and scaled just for kids. It comes in 4 different colors and features unique designs engraved into the handle.

It’s great because there are no crayons, pencils, or markers to worry about. I don’t know how many times she has gotten up and her drawing has travelled off the paper and is partially on the table.
