We don’t love technology for technology’s sake. Rather, our philosophy is less is more. Here we’re helping Our Friends to cut through the noise by curating our tried and true apps. These are the ones we keep coming back to because they help to get the job done while making running the ‘Family Business’ easier.

From booking restaurant reservations with OpenTable to managing screen-time with OurPact, our favorites will help you to Boost Your Star Status!

Note: We only recommend apps we’ve tried and tested– think of us as America’s Tech Kitchen!
