If you’re cooking a special meal for the family, heading out for a picnic in the park, or staying in for a day of entertainment this Mother’s Day, check out these apps that look great on Google TV that can make her day even better.
A Special Meal for Mom
Kraft Foods Cooking School will give you just what you need to spice up your Mother’s Day meal. Browse recipes and watch cooking videos on your big screen to get some inspiration for your dish. Whether you're cooking up a big brunch for the whole family or baking a tasty treat, you’ll find a variety of creative dishes with Kraft.
Check out Chow TV on your Google TV for cooking tips and how-to’s. Watch Cooking with Grandma and learn how to make Italian gnocchi with Grandma Paola, or put your baking hat on and learn how to make the perfect chocolate chip cookie. If cooking isn’t your thing, you may like “The Easiest Way” for recipes that just about anyone can pull off.
A Picnic in the Park
If you're planning a picnic, don’t let the weather interfere with your outing. Take a peek at the forecast on your Google TV with the Accuweather app. You can find the current and extended forecasts for any of your usual spots or favorite locales, as colorful weather images pop on your big screen. With the side bar menu you can quickly jump to weather maps, lifestyle content, videos, and weather news.
A Movie Day
If you want to stay in this Mother’s Day, use Plex to bring Mom all of the entertainment she could ask for. Browse through your personal media collection on the sleek Plex home screen on your Google TV and choose one of Mom’s favorite movies. Put on “The Incredibles” for a movie the whole family can enjoy, or if British drama strikes her fancy, check out “The King’s Speech.” With Plex, you can also stream content from a variety of online sources.
A Trip Down Memory Lane
Create a Pandora playlist based on mom’s favorite artist and then use the Photos for Google TV app to reminisce with Mom by watching a slideshow of all your favorite memories. You can upload your favorite family photos to Picasa and then view them on your Google TV. Google+ Instant Upload lets you take photos with your mobile while you’re on the go and check them out on your TV when you get home. Snap a few pics during your picnic in the park and they’ll be waiting for you on your Google TV when you get back home ready to share with your family on your big screen.
