Practical Apps

Posted: Updated:

WSVN -- If you haven't got your tax refund yet, we'll show you how to track it down. "Irs-2-go" was developed by the IRS and helps you check the status of your refund. 

Get tax updates and all the latest from the IRS on their news feed.

Nothing like the daily gridlock for making your morning commute a nightmare. If you hate being stuck in traffic, you'll love our next app. "Florida 511" gives you all the latest traffic updates. The app uses your GPS to tell you about construction areas, traffic jams and accidents within a 25-mile radius.

Get travel times based on your location and direction of travel Florida 511 is updated throughout the day provided by the Florida Department of Transportation.

And finally, never forget a birthday again. "Birthday Reminder Pro +" lets you know if a birthday is coming. You just enter all the birthdays you want to keep track of and let them know how much in advance you want the reminder.

You can also import birthdays from Facebook or your contact list. Send automatic text or Facebook birthday greetings so you'll never be in the dog house over a forgotten birthday again.

Craig Stevens: "All of today's downloads are free."
