I'm not a big fan of January. The excitement of Xmas is over and all we have to look forward to is snow, sleet and freezing rain. Oh and did I mention darkness? It's dark when I leave for work and dark when I come home at night. And to top it off there are no more statuatory holidays until March.
No wonder bears hibernate at this time of year!
Oh and what about taxes? For the self-employed like me, I enjoy visiting my tax accountant at this time of year about as much as having a root canal done.
No discretionary spending for me for a while. And it's usually shopping that gets me out of my winter funk.
So imagine my delight when I found out that I could get a $24.99 iPhone app I've been wanting to try for a while for free. Yup, the folks at Mobitee are having a one-time promotion where you can get the app for free between January 26th - 31st at 9 pm.
Haven't heard about Mobitee? Well, if you've been spending $60+ a year to update your SkyCaddie subscription, then you need to check them out.
Mobitee is a GPS golf app which contains over 25,000 golf courses, satellite aerial views of each hole, flyover videos, a range finder, shot tracking, score cards, and something I love...FREE updates!
It works on the iPhone, iPod Touch (if you have Internet access) and Android and BlackBerry devices as well.

Pretty cool eh?
I've just downloaded it for my iPhone and I can't wait to try it out on my home course in Vancouver. Only problem is that it's too cold to play golf. :-(
But I have a great idea. Why don't you download it (make sure you download the premium version 2.8), try it out on your favorite courses and come back and tell me how it was. Then I can live vicariously through you until the sun decides to honour us with his presence in this winterland.
And don't forget Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Why not download it for the one you love at the same time? It's never a bad thing to be early with a Valentines gift - beats the heck out of being late. ;)
