A BETTER kind of APP...





Producing stories for Country Home and Better Homes and Gardens over the last fifteen years continues to afford me a bit of an inside track on new happenings in the magazine world.  Last week, I was invited to see an amazing glimpse of the new Better Homes app for the Ipad with engaging and interactive material for the Holiday season.  WHAT A WONDERFUL DEVELOPMENT! All of the information you want and love at your fingertips: recipes, how-to projects, downloadable crafts... and what's more, it is just the tip of the iceberg! I asked lots of questions on your behalf -  knowing that as this technology moves forward, it is so relevant to readers and how they get their information.

Features include:


  •     More than 500 vivid images showing beautiful details of each event
  •     More than 100 special, no-fail recipes
  •     Instructional how-to advice for preparing menus and decorations
  •     Suggested iTunes music playlists customized for each party
  •     Easy ways to share recipes, party images, and planning tips via email, Facebook, and Twitter
  •     Themed games and activities for children
 So please, check it out here

And also check out the downloads and ideas we produced for the December issue of BHG... on stands now.
Here's the link to the felt slideshow



and the link to the free printable gift tags


AND LOOK FOR MORE HOLIDAYS FROM BHG COMING TO YOUR IPAD SOON!
 
Best, 
Matthew

  2. Hi Matthew and Co!
    I loved receiving my magazine too! It's lovely ~
    Oh, but my Christmas decorations need a rescuing from a cluttered basement ~ When I get home from my father's ... my mission is set!

    Do you have an iPad? anyone out there have one that can review it? I think they look amazing...but not sure if a small laptop would be as good. {can laptops get those awesome apps or do you need to have an iPad?}
    so many questions before I buy.

    thanks for all those fabulous links!
    Blessings always* Maria
