Who Else Wants Some Free Party Planning Apps?
Whether you are planning a simple birthday party for kids or adults or a more elegant affair such as a wedding, engagement or anniversary party, the big event can't happen without a few necessities such as party invitations, refreshments and other essential supplies. Simplify your life and make planning any event quick and easy with any of these three free party planning apps.
In today's uncertain economy, it seems like the prices of everything just keep going up. While you might not be able to do much about controlling the cost of food and party supplies for your next gala bash, you can trim your expenses a little by availing yourself of Evite's free party invitation services. Send potential guests an invitation right to their mobile phone, and make an RSVP for the party quick and convenient for them. As a plus for hosts, Evite tracks the positive responses, which makes taking a head count and budgeting for food, decorations and paper supplies incredibly easy. Choose from their huge inventory of in-stock invitations or make your event special by uploading photos and personalizing an invitation. From baby showers and parties to celebrate baby's first year to family gatherings and graduations to potlucks and pool parties, there is bound to be an invitation that is tailor made for your special event. The Evite app is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and can be downloaded for free from the iTunes store.
Take your party planning skills to the next level when you harness the power of the Punchbowl app. In addition to offering services such as free online invitations, use Punchbowl to choose a theme for the party, find creative food ideas, and even connect with the best vendors to help make your event the party of the year. If you are looking for a one-stop shop for all your party planning needs, give Punchbowl a test drive.
If you'd like to add some bells and whistles to your Punchbowl party planning experience, consider upgrading from the free membership to one of the paid membership plans: Plus, Premium, or Platinum. Depending on the level of membership, you can choose from additional invitation design options, fonts or even personalized "postage" stamps. Currently, the Plus membership is $19 per month, Premium is $59 per month, and Platinum is $99. Download the Punchbowl app for free from the iTunes store. It's compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
While this is not an event-planning specific app, Evernote is a feature-rich, multipurpose note-taking and archiving app that can be used for planning parties just as easily as it can be used for keeping track of classroom or sales meeting notes. Think of it as a virtual "sticky-note" system that allows you to stack and track guest, shopping and to-do lists by date or tags. Record audio notes while you do your party shopping or even capture photos of products to make your event special or creative decoration ideas. All notes are synchronized among devices and easy to search. Download a free app for iPhone or iPad from the iTunes store and let the party planning begin!
