A few of our recent favorites
Amy VanHaren -- a working, nursing, traveling, mom -- created pumpspotting to be "a bright light in a world of bathrooms and broom closets". Connect over boobs, milk, lactation, mamahood... all the many trials and triumphs of nursing and pumping; find the best places to pump, nurse and nourish your baby (powered by nursing moms who have been there); search for nursing locations near or far, by location, rating, type of room, or amenities available; share your breastfeeding spots, from the
airport mothering room to the big booth at the back of the local pizza joint. Spot it, rate it, and help your fellow nursing mamas feed their babes (and relieve their boobs).
We're just getting warmed up, so find a comfy chair, pull out a pump or a boob, and join us on the boob-venture of a lifetime. Happy pumpspotting!
Its reviewers call it a "game changer", "so much more than a period tracker", and an "empowerment tool." MyFLO is the first and only app of its kind that helps you learn why you have symptoms and how to fix your period naturally. It tracks all four phases of your cycle (not just the obvious one) and shows you how to best care for your body in each. Learn which foods
are best, what kinds of exercise you'll benefit the most from, and how to live and work in a way that takes advantage of the neuro-hormonal phase you're in. You can also sync your partner so they'll get an email when you move to a new phase with tips on how to love you best. MyFLO helps you see and utilize your cycle as an asset and a source of power.
"Every time you really connect with someone in conversation, your consciousness expands." Danielle LaPorte created this app to spark both connection and expansion.
Conversation Starters displays conversation cards that users can shuffle, scroll through, favorite and share. It's also a portal to all things Desire Map, with a connection to the online community, audio tracks, the email list, and the book itself
Use this app to find the right questions to ask at the cafe, gathered in your living room, at your next lunch meeting, on retreat, on your power walks. Ask them on the phone, or in person, like you would with a book club, or a support group, or the person you most want to share your heart with.
As a big fan of Danielle's and of good conversation, this project was a dream. Conversation Starters earned #1 ranking in its category and debuted as a top 10 paid app in iTunes.
Christine Courtelis created this app for "those of us with heart disease and for our doctors and medical teams too."
In her words, "I know a lot about life as a heart patient. I was born with a rare congenital heart disease. Staying healthy (and alive!) has required five surgeries and a pacemaker – and many visits to doctors and cardiologists.
"My job as a patient involves making sure my doctors have all the information they need about my symptoms and how I’m feeling. I wanted to find a better way to keep track of my symptoms than just jotting things down in a notebook or on a sticky note, so I created MyHeartApp for people like us.
"MyHeartApp lets you track and time your symptoms, as well as make a note of what you were doing when your symptoms occurred. MyHeartApp allows you to retrieve information about your symptoms based on date or type of symptom. You can also log your daily weight, fluid and sodium intake which is helpful for people with heart failure. There’s also a place to take notes, and as a sweet treat, a heart button with on-demand inspiration."
Christine's app that will no doubt make a positive impact on the quality of care for countless heart patients. It was (and continues to be) an honor to work on this app, and with Christine.
