Mother’s Day 2011 iPhone & iPad Apps: Top Gift for Mom

This weekend sees Mother’s Day in the U.S and we know just how hard it can be to come up with the right gift idea for your Mom on her special day. We’ve already given you a selection of tech gift ideas but another great idea would be gifting your mom an Apple iPhone or iPad app. With this in mind we’ve rounded up some suggestions for top apps for mom.

You could present your mom with something a little more original than chocolates or flowers and give her an iTunes card and maybe a few suggestions for apps you think she might appreciate. It’s not an expensive gift but the thought you put into it will go a long way. There are also some ideas here for apps that you can use to show your mom how much you care.

The apps we’ll suggest can all be found in the iTunes store and are compatible for iPhone, iPad or both. For starters, Videolicious is a great app for creating a documentary style film. You could document this Mother’s Day by editing photos and video together and even add music from an iPod. Then you can share the end results on Facebook and YouTube and what makes this app even better is that it’s free!

If your mom enjoys keeping fit and healthy, how about the Pocket Yoga HD app priced at $3.99, or another great app is 2Do: Tasks Done in Style $6.99, which is actually one I could do with myself (hint), and is a task helper and organizer. A really neat idea is the Zite Personalized Magazine and this is another free app. This adapts to what your mom particularly likes and the more it’s used the more it tailors the experience. There’s also The Mom’s App at $3.99. This offers a light-hearted and witty look at being a mom with anecdotes, survival skills and things you wish your mother had told you.

Alternatively how about Momisms, another free app and you’ll know the kind of thing we mean, when you find yourself saying something and realize your mother said it first! If you still can’t think how to show mom how much you care then what about Great Ideas to Surprise Your Mom at $1.99, with different categories such as homemade card ideas, planning surprises, Mother’s Day party ideas, special recipes and much, much more.

We hope you manage to find some great ideas among these suggestions and remember, it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to please us moms, and the thought really is what counts. Have you any other great apps to share with us? If so then please send us your comments or simply let us know what you’ll be doing this Mother’s Day to show your mom how much she means to you.
