Plan a Picnic Party on your Phone

Picnics are usually easy - in my mind stopping by a Whole Foods on the way to the park to pick up cheeses, meat and bread is the perfect afternoon. Plus, we always bring lots of books to enjoy the sun.

Whenever planning a potluck, our group of friends usually sends out a mass email chain with event details and suggested food items. By the time the actual day of the event rolls around, there are more than a dozen emails floating around my inbox with the possible food item that might appear just hours later. Planning a party isn't a precise science, but when I discovered the app Springpad I thought finally! a place to organize every little detail, updated minute-to-minute. 

We carry our phones everywhere these days. It's the latest accessory. So offering an app that not only delivers real-time news on the latest event but helps to ease the tension of planning earns a gold star in my book. As someone who constantly finds recipes via Pinterest, Springpad will help launch a mini-salivation fest for all my friends - hopefully enticing a few more to show up to the big bash. 

Springpad is simple. You can save recipes, placed you'd like to go to on your picnic, things to bring (like a favorite book or magazine), by "springing" them into a Notebook that enables you to save and share with the entire clan. Plus, get this - the app will automatically store all the ingredients from each recipe in a notepad - how is that for efficient?  Share and save your plans while on-the-go (who isn't always on-the-go?) for real time fun. Plus guys, it's free!
