Worldmate App

The Worldmate travel itinerary app is a great little iPhone app for Boomers who fly the friendly skies.


Worldmate App.jpgThis FREE app is so easy to use that you'll think you're travelling with a personal assistant.

It seamlessly synchronizes your itinerary with your iPhone including all your bookings - flights - car rental - hotels, plus all your meetings. It's one handy little travel tool. 

It's loaded with other free goodies designed to make travelling easy. There's a travel planner complete with automated flight alerts, flight status lookup and flight search. When you hit the ground, you're off and running with the maps and directions feature and smart hotel search.


The ATC (Ain't That Cool) items include a tip calculator, currency converter and weather forecasts. It's a one-stop shop that'll make even the crustiest road warrior smile.


And since Apple and Microsoft have at least ended their shooting war, the whole thing synchs up with Microsoft Outlook. Now, everyone at the office can know where you're going, staying and what you'll be doing when you get there.


Maybe that's not the coolest feature, but it does make travelling easy - and that's the whole idea behind the Worldmate travel app.  It's a great freebie you'll find in the iPhone App Store.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
