Celebrate Memorial Day with these iPhone apps
Memorial Day is just around the corner, and that can mean different things to different people. For some, it’s an opportunity to use the extra day off to start a home improvement project. For others, it’s an excuse to relax in the sun with a drink in hand. No matter which option you prefer, there’s probably an app to help you out.
For the type of person who’ll spend the weekend at Home Depot stocking up on material for a holiday home improvement project, there’s the free Home Depot app. While you can save 5 to 10 percent on a variety of online orders, the app will let you browse the Depot on the go. You can buy something from the app and pick it up at your nearest store, buy a gift card, search for items using voice search software and even browse various workshops that occur at Home Depot stores nationwide.
But not everyone wants to start a new project over a holiday weekend, myself included. I prefer to take advantage of the time off to grill up some tasty treats. That’s where the free Omaha Steaks app comes in handy. The Omaha Steaks app features more than 100 recipes searchable by category, ingredient or title. Users can add recipes to a favorites list and watch how-to videos to pick up new cooking techniques. And if you pick up some Omaha Steaks online, you’ll get 6 percent Cash Back.
For those who prefer their treats in a glass instead of a plate, you owe it to yourself to check out the Mixology Drink & Cocktail Recipes (Free) app. With thousands of unique drink recipes and a liquor locator, the only limit to the cocktail of your dreams is your own imagination. And whatever you make will look fantastic when you put it into these Waterford coupe glasses.
No matter what you’re up to this Memorial Day, remember to have a safe and fun time with your friends. And don’t forget your iPhone!
