We Love @Avocado

Have you heard of Avocado?  I happened upon it by accident, I think.  Might have read about it in an article or something - I really don't recall.

Avocado is an app for your phone so that you can stay connected to your special someone when you're apart.  Or just because.

Here's what I like about it.

First of all, it's adorable.

Now the way the app works - it's basically like having a news feed but it's only for 2 people.  And no one else has access.

During the day, if I find myself thinking of my honey, I could send a text...  "How is your day?"  But he might think I'm trying to hint at something else.  He might be busy at that moment and my text is an interruption.

But if I send a virtual hug... he just knows that I was thinking about him and am sending him some affection.

 I can even send him kisses!

We also can share a calendar - we use Google for our family calendar.  But having a little personal calendar where we can schedule dates or whatever is nice.  There's also a place to keep lists and also load pictures.  And our shared profile lets us keep track of our anniversary and our birthdays.  Never forget a date!

So if you're looking for a fun way to stay connected to your sweetie... check out Avocado!

(Avocado doesn't know me and has nothing to do with this post - I just really, really like this app!)

I'm liking Evernote the works on the PC and the phone and then syncs. It's a good way to store/organize info on your phone like med lists, sizes of stuff you need to know while shopping, etc.
