11 Great Apps for Dad This Father's Day

My father loved his computer. I know because he used to call me for tech support almost every day. He was the kind of guy who loved to try out new gadgets. I think a lot of us guys are that way. I know I'm certainly a chip off the ol' block.

In that spirit, it makes sense to round up some great apps you can add to dad's smartphone this year. Some of them are a little pricey for the father who has pretty much everything, while others are free, but you can install them for him and I'm sure he will be thrilled.

And, let's be honest, you might want to drop these onto your own phone as well.
