So there are lots of ways to hack your house with your smartphone, and here's a look at three of them: one zaps junk mail, one programs power naps, and one is a magical doorbell.
PaperKarma ends junkmail
I get way more junkmail than actual mail, and it's so frustrating! I'm using PaperKarma: Just snap a photo of a piece of junkmail and send it to PaperKarma, and the app removes you from the appropriate list. It's like a junkmail opt-out automator.
Make the most of your sleep with Sleep Machine
A two-in-one white noise machine and nap-guide, Sleep Machine has a rep as a best-in-class of sleep apps — it does the job of $5.99 apps, but at just $1.99.
Say "I'm here" with Pocket Doorbell
Pocket Doorbell is my favorite. If you think it's too much work to type the message "i'm here," when you get to a friends' place, just set up your pocket doorbell, and it'll do it for you. It keeps a list of friends you visit often, and will text or call them when you ring their doorbell.
Get it: $.99 on iTunes. Via Swiss Miss.
