Times have changed ‘app-solutely’ from the good old days of greetings cards to e-greetings to gifting apps to your loved ones. June 15th is Father’s Day. Celebrate this very special day by gifting a free app to your dad. Since these apps are free, it won’t burn a hole in your pockets, but as they say, gifts are priceless! Here is a round up of the most interesting free apps for dads this Father’s day.
Fitness Freak Dad
If your dad takes fitness seriously or if he is just looking to lose weight, get into shape or just get healthier, then he surely deems fit in this category of Fitness Freak Dads. But what if he is equally irregular about it, on his own. Isn’t training, getting in shape and losing weight more fun when you are doing it with friends or group of people? Wouldn’t it be great if he could track his workout in just about any form of distanced-based outdoor fitness endeavor, analyze the results, challenge your friends, get encouragement from them, and engage with your social community for support, comeraderie and mutual or joint training activities?
You can do all that with Endomondo Sports Tracker! The first Social Fitness Network.Help your dad sweat it out, the smart way with this smart work out app.
Frequent Traveler Dad
If your dad is always on the run for work, between countries and different time zones, your one on one sessions take a back seat. And all the international calls cost you a bomb. Well, fret not and download Nimbuzz, the communication app trusted world over for voice calling that reduces your bills by upto 90%. Still need another reason? You can use this app to send virtual gifts to him and express your feelings with playful stickers. Daddy is going to become more ‘connected’ with this one.
If your dad is always forgetting important dates, names and tasks, and you want to help him get more organized, Evernote is your best bet. Also known as virtual extension of your memory, Evernote enables you to organize everything in your life from to do lists to personal notes. The tagline for the app- Remember everything- is a reason enough for your dad to have it on his phone already.
If your dad is always comparing your grades, job and life to your friends and cousins, then he is certainly like 90% of the Indian dads. But allow him to enjoy more as he tests his knowledge and speed in categories ranging from general knowledge to Bollywood, from web culture to physics and so on. Gift him Quiz Up immediately. The quizzing app will let him test his knowledge against his friends and others from around the world. Warning: It is a lot of fun and addictive as hell.
If you have ever been embarrassed by your dad pretending to be Sivamani with kitchen utensils or tables, you need to gift him Spotlight Drums right away! While there are a number of music tutorial apps out there, this one will put him on the stage where he belongs and make his music sound great. The 3D drums are dangerously addictive and way more melodious that the kitchen utensils.
