    a big complaint about smartphones is that they've helped to kill off privacy. while there is some truth to this, it can depend entirely on how you use it. I'd suggest to someone that they don't have their entire life connected to it, and instead have it serve some purposes but not all (such as using apps to help you save money and spend wisely!) I'm almost surprised that coupon clipping still exists, with mobile phones and all of those helpful apps. Cub Foods, to my knowledge still only has an app for the iPhone and not Android phones. :-( But these apps you mentioned sound good.

    There will be no voice acted version due to the fact that the original voice actors would be way too expensive and a fan version would destroy the immersion. | |
