Now There's a Tip Junkie App for That!

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 Use the New Tip Junkie App?

There are so many cool ways to use Tip Junkie on the go with the new Tip Junkie iPhone App:

  • Just think how easy it will be to plan a party. You can “heart” all the tutorials you are going to use for your party and then when you’re at the store – you can bring the tutorial back up on your phone to make sure you’ve purchased all your supplies.
  • When you’re at PTA meeting you can show a picture of what trying to explain to a friend or committee chairperson.
  • When you’re in carpool, you can “heart” all of your favorite tutorials so that you can quickly find them later without having to wait for your browser to load.
  • When you’re at a play date or chatting with a friend you can bond over all the crafty ideas you’re dying to make together.
  • The possibilities are endless!

Where Do I Get It?

Wondering how you too can download the new Tip Junkie application for free?  Here you go:

Tip Junkie IPhone App Profile

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}

  12. Hillary B.

    I just got it!! I am so excited!!! It is too awesome!!! 😀

  13. Pamala Watts

    android app does not seem fully functional 🙁 there is no way to heart the articles and there is nothing about profiles or anything like how you described for the iphone 🙁 the only thing I can do is browse.. but again there is no saving it for later unless I click share and send it through an email or sms or whatever..

  14. Tricia

    Very cool! Can’t wait to download it this evening!

  15. Laura

    I second the blackberry suggestion!

  16. Sue Morris

    congratulations on the new app! how FUN! I’m going to download it for my Android. 🙂

  17. Kelley

    I was really excited about the app until I discovered with the Droid version, you can’t favorite things, or use the profile feature. So, I may as well surf online.

  18. Tricia

    Hi Laurie; When I downloaded the app all it does it show the cover page and then closes. I don’t know how to get it to work. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!


  19. Kristen

    Very cool, Laurie! Congrats!

  20. Joyce

    So excited to have the app! Loading it now!

  21. Laurie

    Yes Colleen – I’m trying to find a programmer that can make one for the blackberry. {squeal}

    Laurie {Tip Junkie}

  22. Laurie

    Yes Pamala you’re right. The Andriod version does not have as many functions as the iPhone version, right now. That software is a little different, but we’re working on it – it will just take a little more time. Sorry about that. 🙂

    Laurie {Tip Junkie}

  23. Laurie

    Hi Tricia – I am working on getting that fixed. Can you tell me what type of phone you are using? We are trying to narrow it down so we can get the issue resolved. Thanks girl!

    Laurie {Tip Junkie}

  24. Laurie

    That’s right the Android doesn’t have that capability yet. As soon as they upgrade their software we’ll be able to upgrade ours. My programmer says it should be ready in the Fall. So you won’t have to wait long. {crossing fingers}

    Laurie {Tip Junkie}

  25. charlene

    I just got the app can’t wait to try it out…thanks

  26. Holly Hamann

    You are amazing – what a fabulous way to let people interact with your content while on the go. Laurie – you are incredible!

  27. Megan B

    I am having the same issue as Tricia, it just shows an opening image, then crashes. I deleted it and tried downloading it again, but same thing. I have an iPhone (not the new version but the new software) if that helps…

  28. Laurie

    Thanks Megan – my programmer is working on it. Sadly, it seems to be an issue with the iPhone 3Gs not the software from the app itself. {grrr} We’ve contacted Apple and are trying to resolve it as fast as possible. Thank you so much for letting me know.

    Laurie {Tip Junkie}

  29. Heather

    I’m heeled about the app! Going to download it right now
