I never really understood the usefulness/value/purpose of apps until I got my iPhone. Now, I can honestly say that apps really can make your life run a lot more efficiently.
Angry Birds aside, there are some great apps out there. (Full disclosure: I have that one on my phone too!) Here’s the app that’s making life easier this week:
With April 15 just around the corner, TurboTax is making doing your taxes ridiculously easy. You take a picture of your W-2 on your phone, and SnapTax will input all of the info into a form and even file for you! It costs $14.99 if you file you taxes using TurboTax, $19.99 if you file another way. The downside is that SnapTax currently only handles 1040EZ forms, so if you itemize, you’ll have to do it the old-fashioned way. But what a great sense of accomplishment you’ll get from knowing your taxes are done and you finished them on the train ride home!
