Mothers, as we all know, have a lot on their hands, usually 24 hours, 7 days a week. Whether you be a stay-at-home mom or a career woman, life these days for the female species is even more frenzied and chaotic than their male counterparts. As we come home, play with the kids and sit in front of the TV to catch a game, Moms are checking dinner, talking to household help or hollering for the kids to settle in, and already preparing for the next day. All in a day’s work, so a smartphone is today’s essential deal breaker gadget. These applications we’ve compiled for you should make life a little easier, and a lot more fun!

Since the world has broadened ways we touch base, Fring offers you expanded freedom. If your teen or big kid has a 3G phone, it’s not a big task to check on them, and make a conference call with your partner as well, or get in touch with good friends to plan a girls night out, or even family abroad.
The only thing is, although this application is gaining popularity, not everybody has it, so I guess it’s up to you to post it on your social networking sites to encourage people to be “Fring Friends” with you!
