    Christmas Apps


    Nothing puts you in a festive mood quite like holiday music. We have more access to free music than we ever have before, but it can sometimes be a chore to find the style of music that you want. Here are a few apps to bring the song into your life.

    Christmas Radio – With over fifty stations of music, Christmas Radio will keep your holidays fresh and entertaining. It makes it easy to skip stations if what you find isn’t to your taste.

    Little Fox Music Box – A songbook with three sing along songs for your kids, and the record your own song feature will keep your young ones occupied for hours.


    Whether hosting a party or simply enjoying a holiday evening at home, a well-concocted holiday beverage by your side is a must. However many of us (myself included), are a bit lost on the art of the cocktail creation. These cocktail apps will help you mix the drink that everyone will remember.

  • 3 Food & Drink Apps For Summer

    Alex-InternHello Grommet fans!  My name is Alexandra and I’ve  just started as an intern here at The Grommet.  Already, I can tell that there is an open and inviting atmosphere here (it can be felt as soon as you step through the front door of the new office space).  This, plus the genuine effort put forth by my coworkers to integrate me into their habitat has started making me feel like an important part of this blossoming business.  Also there is a coffee machine in the kitchen that is completely at my disposal.  Thus, in short, I couldn't be more excited to be interning here.

    One of my first tasks was to find the best apps to help kick off summer. Being  the most highly anticipated season (and one of my favorites), I was up for the task!   What's not to love about beaches, barbeques, and a welcome dosage of vitamin D?  It means we can stop hoarding food like a bear in hibernation and start having fun, light meals while watching the sunset.  It means we can kick back and enjoy evening drinks on the deck, knowing that somehow cocktails just taste better June through August.

    Here are a few food and drink apps that are sure to keep you happy until the leaves turn, as well as some choice products from The Grommet that will enhance your summertime experience.  Enjoy!

  • 6 Apps To Help With New Year's Resolutions

    Image courtesy of www.dreamstime.com

    Welcome to 2013! Right in front of us we have a fresh slate, an unwritten year that we can make into anything we want. It's time for renewal, rebirth, and you guessed it, resolutions. Doesn't it feel like yesterday that we promised ourselves (or not) that this would be the year for ___ (fill in the blank). Whether or not you've sucesfully stuck with your resolutions from last year, here's your chance to start again. This time, we thought we'd share a few apps which may help.

    Below read about 6 apps that will help you keep your new year's resolutions, whatever they may be.


    Ever gone to the gym in January? It's packed!  Unfortunately, by March it's back to the regular crowd. Those who ditch feel guilty for not working out and not using the gym that they've paid for. Enter Gympact. When real money is involved, people's motivations heighten. Who knew? Keep your own "pact" of how often you'll go to the gym or work out and you'll be compensated with cash. Miss a workout and be ready to pay the price (typically about $5). Check out this app and be sure to let us know if it helped you to get motivated and fit.


    You can think of RunKeeper as a necessary arm to Gympact. They actually work together to help you achieve your weight and workout goals. When you track your workouts on Gympact, they get added to your goals on RunKeeper too. It even adds in the social aspect to provide encouragement from friends who also use the app. Want a laugh? Check out their video on Why New Year's Resolutions are Bullsh*t. Then scroll through the informative infographic on new year's resolutions and how to make them realistic.

    Ideal Me Lite:

    Here's an important question. Who's the ideal person that you'd like to become? Kind of a big question, right? Don't think about just one or two aspects of your life, but others such as becoming more confident, dressing better, getting up earlier. Take some time to think about it and then make them into real goals on the Ideal Me Lite app. We think it's pretty cool and would love to hear what you think.


    N'aimeriez-vous pas de parler français?

    Translation: (from French) Wouldn't you love to speak French?

    Or perhaps you've always felt yourself drawn to the beauty of the Italian language. Yet there's just so little time to take classes between kids, school and work. Well, now you can learn on the go with Babbel. It has strong reviews and the New York Times even wrote about the app recently. So what are you waiting for?

    Inizia oggi l'apprendimento!

    Translation: (from Italian) Start learning today!

    My last cigarette: Quit Smoking!

    We all hope that fewer and fewer people need this app each year. Yet for those who are trying to kick the bad habit, this app might provide some help. My last cigarette has recently become an app, and a popular one at that. All you need to do is enter your smoking information along with personal details and readouts will keep you informed with stats about your improved health, lifespan, savings, as well as nicotine CO2 levels and expected cravings information. We know quitting is hard, which is why no on can do it alone.

    Reward Volunteers:

    More than ever, the world needs volunteers to help. Volunteering gives you a sense of accomplishment and helps you to become part of a community. Yet there are so many charities and causes out there, who can choose? Reward Volunteers helps you choose and rewards you and the organizations where you volunteer.

    What are your resolutions this year and which apps would you suggest?
