Family Movie Night with Pop Secret Popcorn #GoodbyeBurnedPopcorn @PopSecret #sp

This post is sponsored by Pop Secret, but my opinions are all my own.

Family movie night in is one of our favorite traditions, and @PopSecret’s new app just mane it even better!  #sp #PerfectPop

Every Friday night the kids and I pull out their bed mattresses and pile them close on the floor in the living room. Friday is our Family Movie Night and “slumber party” in the living room, granted when my daughter has a friend over, she doesn’t sleep out there with us. The boys look forward to this Friday night fun, they count down all week to our slumber party, it’s really cute.

This past Friday, we tried something new, Pop Secret new App has a way for me to stop burning popcorn! What you all do not know is that I am famous for plopping the microwavable popcorn into the microwave and hitting the wrong time, then we end up with burned popcorn. The house smells forever, it’s such a hard smell to get rid of. The problem is that once our home is rid of that smell, I go ahead and burn some more popcorn.

What can I say, I like to keep things interesting!

Well, we no longer have to worry about me burning the popcorn with the app from Pop Secret that easily allows you to time popcorn popping just right. With your iPhone 5+ on iOS 7+, download Perfect Pop (“Perfect Popcorn”) for free on the App Store.
1. Put a bag of Pop Secret in the microwave and enter suggested cooking time from the packaging. Note: Perfect Pop is optimized for the deliciousness of Pop Secret popcorn only.

2.    Turn up the volume on your iPhone. Point the phone’s speaker towards the microwave and keep within 3 feet.

3. Start the microwave, and then start the app.

No more relying on the popcorn button or guessing how many seconds in between pops. Pop Secret is serious about perfect popcorn, so the less you have to worry about, the more time you can spend enjoying movie night with your friends & family. Perfect Pop listens to the pops, waiting for the precise moment to let you know when your popcorn is perfect.

I am in love with this app, it is so freaking awesome!

The next time you do a family  movie night and are in search for the perfect family movie night popcorn, try out Pop Secret and use the Pop Secret app to time it just right. You see, my other happy thought about this app is that you will have more popcorn in the bag versus kernels. I am guilty of either burning the popcorn OR not popping it long enough so we end up with a lot of excess kernels. Just ask my daughter, she will tell you my guilty ways of popcorn popping, it’s a common joke around here. We won’t have to worry anymore with the Pop Secret app and maybe, just maybe, I can outlive this current family joke!

So, have you ever burned popcorn before?

A Fun App for Children: Muzzle Puzzle #ios #app #spon

My daughter has an iPhone 4 and I asked if she would download Muzzle Puzzle to have a looksie since I was asked my opinion on this game for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

When I asked my daughter what she thought about Muzzle Puzzle she told me that this is a pretty cool, fun game that reminds her of a game called Flow but much funner. Now, I have no clue what Flow is but apparently Muzzle Puzzle is a lot more fun than Flow, at least according to my tween daughter. Must mean something good. Muzzle Puzzle is a free game app for your iOS 5.0 or higher. This app has been optimized for iPhone 5 as well.

This game may sound simple enough but it’s not so simple, download this free Muzzle Puzzle app so that the whole family can have fun trying to get more matches then the next family member. You must match each adorable monster with it’s identical partner on the game screen, but there’s a catch – no two lines can go over the other. This means you have to use your brain and thinking ahead skills to really make sure you are matching the monsters in Muzzle Puzzle up correctly. With 150 levels, Muzzle Puzzle is sure to keep your family on their toes trying to get the best high score. Once Muzzle Puzzle reaches level 50 the game turns into more of a challenge that even the most puzzle savvy adult will enjoy trying to solve.

Download Muzzle Puzzle today on the app store for free and tell me what you think of it!

Jade Monkey Jewel Game App for iPad or iPhone #game #app #spon

I was approached to check out Jade Monkey on my iPhone, this is also available for your iPad, and today I am sharing this app with you all. I know you may just get addicted to it, like me. At the moment this app is free, it says for a limited time only. I cannot guarantee if you read this later on if the app will still be free, so download Jade Monkey on the App Store today to check it out for yourself.

Jade Monkey

This is based on the most popular game playing concept, jewel collecting, I love games like this and it’s super fun with the whole rainforest theme.  The colors, the graphics, perfect! Jade Monkey allows you to collect jewels horizontally or vertically in sets of three or more same colored gems. The cool thing is you can do multiplayer in real time via Game Center. What can I say in text that video can’t show you, right? So click play below to watch the video trailer showcasing Jade Monkey.

I really do have fun playing this game, there isn’t a whole lot more to say about it because it sells itself, in my opinion. Give it a try and tell me what you think! Download Jade Monkey to your iPhone or iPad for free for limited time.

Using Personal Best Pro on the App Store for my Sports Child #app #spon #free #apple

Today I am sharing Personal Best Pro app for the sports families, whether it’s you or the children who play sports this is a great app to keep track of the achievements, events or other goals met in sports. Easily add users in the home screen to create a family account. Each user may have an image assigned, name and date of birth. After each user is put into Personal Best Pro iOS app then you can start to add sports and achievements for each sport.

Personal Best Pro

An easy way to remember various achievements your children or yourself have made and maybe even celebrate! I am a Mom who may be found doing a happy dance for each achievement my children make; currently my two boys are in wrestling and it’s their first year. This is my season to start happy dancing around because they did a bridge stretch higher than they did on the last practice or they started to use a wrestling move more efficiently than they did in their first week of wrestling. Whatever achievement my sons make, it’s great to have Personal Best Pro app installed so I have notes right there, this is also a great app to assist me to reviewing my son’s achievements at wrestling to tell their Dad. My son’s Dad and I are divorced, we co-parent together so this means I have to try to jot down weekly achievements to let their Dad know with a report during the week or in their folder we exchange for news and notices.

Personal Best Pro Free iOS app

I just love this app because really the Personal Best Pro will assist me in being better at logging activities my son’s complete in their sports through out the year. During next school year when my daughter cheers and middle child is in soccer, I can also monitor their achievements and it will be fabulous to have an app in hand to do that with.

I say you take a second to go check out Personal Best Pro in the app store if you have sports running in your family – again this can be for the adults or children; it really is a useful tool to keep track of achievements that will 1) allow you to push harder next time and 2) celebrate goals reached in sports. 

Personal Best Pro is free at the app store.

Spelling Super Star App for iPad and iPhone Makes Spelling Fun Giveaway

Today I am sharing a fun app that only costs .99 in the App Store, it’s called Spelling Super Star and it’s a fun way to help your child learn to spell. With colorful images and easy to navigate app options this is a great way to encourage a love of spelling with your child. Rate for ages 4 plus, you can enjoy some quality time over the iPhone or iPad when you download Spelling Super Star from the App Store.

Spelling Super Star App

 I love that this app doesn’t really need much adult supervision, this means the children can feel confident that they are learning on their own. I know this is something that encourages my kids to push further, they love knowing that they accomplished something on their own! All of the artwork found in Spelling Super Star app is hand drawn, which also makes it appealing to children in my opinion. Hand drawn art in an app is more appealing to children who seem to seek child looking graphics as opposed to the plain Jane bright computerized graphics.

Features that I love on Spelling Super Star:

  • Ability for children to navigate easily on their own.
  • Fact that there are 800+ words that are separated into 15 categories with an All-in-One Category as an option too.
  • Ability to personalize your app with 12 different backgrounds and 6 letter color options.
  • Encourage healthy competition with top score lists that has the top 10 names and scores to allow your children to challenge each other and friends.

You know I am that kind of Mom who loves having my kids involved learning technology but also wants them learning something. Don’t get me wrong, I do let my kids play the average kid games like MineCraft that have little to no educational components but I am a huge advocate for fun educational games you can use on your electronic device for children. This is a great app to test out if you have a child who wants to learn to spell and increase their spelling words to impress their teacher!
