5 Tech Savvy Gadgets/Apps to upgrade your toys

RunPee App

The first one is called the RunPee app. This app is always being updated each day when movies are released. This app notifies you with the best time to run and pee during your favorite movies without missing anything important.

There a feature that has a timer that will vibrate your phone before each peetime. This allows you to use the app to watch a movie and not bother people around you in the theatre. It runs on iPhone, Android, and Windows devices.

Outdoor Tech: DJ Slims

I used these gems while I was running and they stayed in place. I loved the fact that these headphones were wireless so I didn’t have to worry about wires getting in my way while I was working out.

The DJ Slims wirelessly connect with your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or any other Bluetooth-enabled device. The headphones connected easily to my iPhone after I had the initially charged the DJ Slims. Speaking of charging the headphones, the battery life goes for nine hours and had a range of 30 feet. There is also a built-in microphone that allows you to make and receive hands-free calls from anywhere, any time. These sell for around $64 and you can get them at
