Mobile : 5 Android Apps for Busy Dads

Whether it's for work or play, staying organized or finishing a "to-do" list of household projects, we've got some apps to help Dad keep up (and improve his golf game, too).

The Home Depot

The Home Depot app makes it easy for Dad to research hundreds of thousands of store products. He can check out appliances, power tools, patio furniture, BBQ grills, lumber and more—seeing if it's in the store inventory and even finding out the aisle location of the product he's looking for. Then he simply scans the QR and UPC codes, and he can buy the products instantly or pick them up at a nearby store.

Quick Tip: This app also provides a handy in-store map, so Dad can easily find what he needs at his favorite Home Depot store. No more wandering around aimlessly.


The Grill-It! app is a tasty mobile grilling recipe app, with detailed instructions and professional photos for each recipe. Now Dad can master the fine art of grilling beef, lamb, seafood, chicken and veggies, and he'll discover new ideas for outdoor meals and marinades.

Quick Tip: Dad can easily browse recipes by category, save favorites, and even search for particular ingredients.

ESPN ScoreCenter

The ESPN ScoreCenter app delivers live scores from hundreds of sports leagues around the world. Dad will get the latest scores, news updates and standings of his favorite teams. He can receive personalized scoreboards and live game details, as well as breaking news and analysis, and up-to-the-minute video clips. With such comprehensive sports coverage, Dad won't miss a single play.

Quick Tip: With the myTeams feature, Dad can follow his favorite teams on one card so he can get all the updates he needs in one location.

Cozi Family Calendar & Lists

The Cozi Family Calendar & Lists app turns Dad's phone into a centralized calendar, with the whole family sharing one account that everyone can access using their email address and a shared family password. Now Dad can create a chore list and get a reminder about a doctor's appointment. He can keep up with kids' soccer practices and baseball games, to-do lists, and shopping lists.

Quick Tip: Dad can add to a "family journal" on the go—jotting down a special moment, then adding a photo for the whole family to see.

SkyDroid Golf GPS

This app is the perfect way to help golfers get their distances and lower their golf scores. It's accurate and reliable, and requires no registration or subscription charges. With the SkyDroid Golf GPS app, Dad will get a full-featured GPS rangefinder that shows his distance to the front, center and back of every green (and many hazards and targets). He can find his distance to any point on the golf course with a simple finger press, and take advantage of the shot-tracking feature.

Quick Tip: This app provides satellite views of every golf course, with more than 22,000 courses mapped so far (and more being added all the time).
