The Best Apps for Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving 2.0

Whether you’re hosting your own Thanksgiving dinner (and doing all of the cooking) or traveling to visit friends and family, this holiday weekend can get hectic. But the smartphone in your pocket can be a huge help to make it all go smoothly. It can save you money, which we’re all thankful for (no pun intended) since the average Thanksgiving dinner is expected to cost 13% more than it did in 2010 (according to the American Farm Bureau Federation). From apps full of dish recipes to apps with delicious desserts to an app that turns your smartphone or iPad into a fireplace, MainStreet put together some of the most helpful smartphone apps for Thanksgiving.
