Gift for dad? There's an app for that

Posted: Updated:

With Father's Day right around the corner, there's no need to stress over what to get Dad... there's an app for that!

For the fix-it-himself Dad, try the iHandy Level. It's a free iPhone app that lets you use your phone to make sure walls, pictures, and shelves are level. 

For the grilling Dads, there's an app from the Weber Grill people. It gives your dad a grill timer, grilling tips and hundreds of outdoor recipes. It may seem pricey at $4.99, but this app can turn any dad into a gourmet grill cook. 

And what Dad doesn't need some peace of mind? For five bucks a month, the Life360 family locator will display locations of up to five family members. It even lets your kids check in when they're safe, and if they need help it will set off an alarm. 

But even if you can't find the perfect app for dad, an app store gift card is always a good choice too.
