Favorite Four: Apps to Make Mom Smile

Posted by Rob Rich on May 10th, 2013

With the arrival of Mothers Day, children everywhere will be scrambling to show their appreciation. Perhaps consider one of these iOS options as well. Not that they'd replace quality time, of course. By all means go and treat your mom to a nice dinner, give her a call, or whatever else you were planning to do. We just ask you to consider adding one (or all) of these digital possibilities to your Mother's Day plan.

Flower Garden
Who doesn't think of getting their mom some flowers on Mothers Day? Nobody, that's who. Flower Garden allows users to grow their own flora, as well as acquire new seeds for more exotic (and in some cases fictitious) examples. After some TLC they can then harvest their flowers and create a bouquet. A bouquet they can send to anyone on their Contacts list. And if the price seems a bit steep don't fret; there's a possibility (nothing official, just guessing) that it may go on sale like it did last Mothers Day.

Let’s create! Pottery HD
Mom always likes it when you make her stuff. She always held on to that hideous ashtray you made for her back when you were in first grade, even though she doesn't smoke. Now you can shower her with a ton of virtual ceramics without the hassle of any cleanup. Much like Flower Garden it's possible to send photos of a piece to anyone you want, including mom. Unlike Flower Garden it's also possible to give a particular favorite physical form through a little in-app purchase of some 3D printing.

Cards
Moms also like to get cards. Not just on Mothers Day, either. Downloading Apple's official custom card creation app is practically a no-brainer for such an occasion. And as an added bonus you can send her customized greeting cards of the family/kids year-round. Think about that: the ability to send your mom personalized (and physical) greeting cards whenever you'd like, for any occasion. All without having to browse through the paltry selection at the store.

ComicBook!
Giving your mom some eFlowers or making her a card is cool and all, but putting together a comic book that chronicles your adventures fighting crime (or even something a bit more tame) is just plain fun. I dare any moms out there not to laugh, or at least crack a smile, when their sons or daughters present them with the first issue of The Incredible Mom, Spidermom, or even Iron Mom.

Who doesn't want to be inside a comic book? Exactly. While ComicBook! doesn't exactly enable this, it does at least ensure that its users can pretend to feature in a comic book.

In case it isn't already obvious, ComicBook! is a comic book creation app enabling users to star in their own adventures with the ability to add realistic comic styling, captions, graphics and multi-panel page layouts. Finally, everyone can kapow their way out of trouble.

Options are pretty varied with a whole plethora of different graphics and layouts to use. There are 55 comic book style illustrations alone that can be included in a composition. It's simple enough to add photos and it's even simpler to go onto share such creations via Facebook, Twitter or email. Users can even print out their creations from within the app if they so choose to. The only real limitation is the depth of the user's imagination which can certainly be inspired by this app.

ComicBook! looks set to be a very entertaining app for young and old alike. It's available now as an universal app and priced at only $0.99 for a limited time.
