Have a Happier Holiday with an Android

The holidays have rolled around again and it is time to plan the parties. From invitations to food and everything in between, planning any party—let alone one meant to celebrate the holiday season—is often nothing short of a nightmare. This year, maybe it is time to put some twist, make it easier on you and those around you. After all, wasn't technology invented to make life easier? This year why don't you plan a holiday party with your Android?

How Much Help Can an Android Be?

They don't call them ‘smart' phones for nothing. Turn your Android into your personal assistant while you are planning your party. There are a variety of apps available to make it easier. Download a checklist to make sure you don't forget anything. Use a recipe app to decide just what to make for dinner. Every aspect of the planning phase can be made easier with your android phone. Don't forget to look for festive holiday drink recipes as well.

No More Snail Mail

Don't rely on snail mail to deliver your invitations on time. Instead, plan a holiday party with your Android phone—even inviting as many guests as you like has been made easier. Sync up with Facebook (or another favorite social media site) to send out invitations. Hand out your phone number and request a text message for your RSVP. To make it even easier on yourself, send out an email and keep your tally by checking your account several times a day—right from your phone.

Make the Money Matter

One of the most difficult things to manage when it comes to throwing a party is the money. Developing a budget and sticking to it is difficult. Download an app to help keep track of all the money you need to spend on the party. An integrated calculator can make it easy to tally up expenses while you shop.

Rock the Party

No holiday party would be complete without some entertainment. Use your Android to hook into a music server (Cricket's Muve Music is great) to bring a bit of holiday cheer to your party in the form of music. Use all the classics to relieve memories and find some new ones to jive all night. Don't forget to upload the Strobe Light app for flashing lights and colors that move in time to the beat of the music.

Your android can absolutely make planning your holiday party easier. Use it for everything, from preparing the invitations to mixing drinks. Instead of planning and fretting, Android can do most of the job while you can enjoy your party this year.
