Holy Smokes Ladies ~  Tip Junkie is now Mobile!!  If you have a smart phone {iPhone, iPad, Andriod} then you'll have an insiders look to the New Tip Junkie App.  And of course, it's FREE.

There are several cool features to the New Tip Junkie App but my favorite is that you can "heart" your favorite creative tutorials right on your phone. {squeal}  Yep, that means you'll be able to bookmark your favorite ideas so you can easily find them again later, even when you're on the go!

How Do I Make A Profile?

My only complaint with this new fab app is that it doesn't have a "create a profile" icon.  That seems like a no-briainer to me, but until we get that fixed, it's really easy to create a free profile.  Here's how:

  • From any page on the app, take your finger touch the bottom of the screen and "flip up" the page to bring up the "activity" page.  {This may take a few tries}
  • It will take you to a black "activity" page and click on the person icon to upload a photo and edit your screen name.
  • The heart icon is all of your bookmarked tutorials.

I am really excited about this new way to view and interact with Tip Junkie.  There's still more to come but in the meantime, I hope this helps make things a little easier for you in your busy, busy life.  {hugs}
