Thanksgiving Apps for Your Smartphone  |  Robyns.World

Thanksgiving is almost here and your smartphone can help get your meals cooked and keep you entertained. There truly is an app for just about everything these days. Below is an update list of some of my favorite apps to help with Thanksgiving plus a few new ones.

Thanksgiving Food

  • Big Oven
    Millions of recipes of all kinds including plenty for Thanksgiving, even Thanksgiving leftover recipes. Also a grocery list function, meal planner, and much more. Scroll down to bottom of page for app section.
  • Food Network In the Kitchen
    All of your favorite Food Network things in an app. Get recipes, advice, cooking skills and more to help you during Thanksgiving.
  • Pepperplate
    Another amazing food app. Find recipes, plan menus, create shopping lists and more. I love the feature that lets you tell the app you are cooking which prevents the phone from turning off/sleeping while you are in the kitchen.
  • Pinterest
    An amazing resource for so many things and Thanksgiving is no exception. Find endless Thanksgiving recipes, decorating ideas, craft projects and much more. Just search for Thanksgiving and be amazed at the possibilities.
  • Vivino
    Need to know what wine to serve for Thanksgiving dinner? The Vivino app can help you find the perfect wines. Plus, if you are eating somewhere else you can take a picture of the wine bottle and it will bring up all sorts of info from where to buy and reviews and lets you save the wine you really loved so you can buy it yourself later.

Thanksgiving Fun

  • A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
    An interactive version of Thanksgiving with the Peanuts gang.
  • Hidden Object Turkey Trot
    Do you love hidden object games? Try the turkey trot and have fun finding all the hidden objects in the Thanksgiving themed images.
  • NCAA College Football
    College football scores and game statuses live, get the TV channel listings for games, set alarms so you don’t miss your favorite games and much more.
  • NFL
    Get the latest news, info, scores, and more on your favorite football teams with the NFL app.
  • Skype
    Even if you can’t be in person with your loved ones on the holiday you can still be in touch. Skype lets you video chat, call, or text with them easily.
  • Thanksgiving 2017
    A fun little app for the holiday that includes a Thanksgiving countdown, trivia and fun facts, and more Thanksgiving items.
  • Thanksgiving Click Clack
    If you have kids who are Lego fans then this app will be perfect. The app gives step by step instructions on building a turkey, pumpkin pie and more with Legos.
  • Turkey Calls
    Most of us are far removed from our food sources these days. Teach the kids what a real turkey sounds like with these turkey calls in the app.

Thanksgiving Travel

  • BringFido
    Is your dog just as much a part of your family as humans? If you are taking Fido along on your trip find out where he is welcome with this app.
  • Gas Buddy
    If you are driving to Thanksgiving dinner be sure to get the Gas Buddy app to find the cheapest gas wherever you are.
  • Hum
    If you are taking a road trip over the holidays then Hum can give you a little piece of mind. It will keep track of your cars health, give you access to roadside assistance and more.
  • TripIt
    One of the best all-around travel apps for anytime of the year.
  • Waze
    If you are traveling, locally or out of town, for Thanksgiving the Waze app will give you up to date information on the best routes. It includes information from other active Waze users for up to the minute traffic conditions.
  • Airline Apps
    No single link for this one but if you are flying anywhere be sure to download the app for the airline(s) you are flying on. Most have ability to check-in to your flight, display boarding pass (without printing), and make it easier to change flights if need be.
