Enjoy A Perfect Evening At Home

Mobile apps don't always have to be about being, well, mobile. Here's everything you need to have all the fun of going out without having to find parking, get a table, or deal with people. These are apps that will feed you and keep you entertained right where you're most comfortable and least crowded -- your own living room.

Movies, Shows, and More

Who needs cable anymore? These apps let you stream all of your favorite movies and shows directly to your phone or Apple TV. Whether you're looking for new shows to binge or want to keep current on your favorites, they'll make it easier than ever to meet your entertainment needs. Just be careful; autoplay is powerful, and you'll probably "just one more episode" yourself into a lot of sleepless nights.

For movie lovers; especially those with Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime Video has hundreds of thousands of movies, TV shows and original content available to stream or download. The helpful Watchlist feature makes it easy for you to add videos for later viewing. Auto Play is another useful feature that allows you to start watching the next episode of your favorite show automatically, which is perfect for binge watching! The service is compatible with your Apple TV and is included in your Amazon Prime subscription.

Why we love it

A vast expanse of movies and TV shows included with your Amazon Prime subscription. What could be better?

Dinner Made Easy and Convenient

We love to cook, but that doesn't necessarily mean we want to do it all the time. Here are apps that can solve your dinner problems quickly, efficiently, and deliciously. Whatever you're hungry for, they'll get it to your door in no time. Of course, they won't help you resolve endless debates about pizza toppings, but technology can only do so much.

Have a Glass of Wine

We don't know off the top of our heads which vintage to pair with pizza, but thanks to these apps, we don't have to -- although we assume that their first bit of advice would be, "Don't." Luckily, they make up for our lack of cultivation and basic class with a suite of features that will help pick the perfect bottle for dinner or relaxing.

Music Makes Everything Better

These apps will help you pick and play music to set the perfect mood for your night. You can make a playlist or be adventurous and pick a curated station or channel to discover your new favorite songs.

Pandora Music

A free music and radio app that learns from what you like

Pandora Music

Pandora Radio

For people who don't want to spend a lot on their music

With Pandora, you create your playlist by starting off with an artist or song that you love. Using its proprietary algorithm, the streaming music service then picks additional artists and songs that are similar to what you began with. You can refine the station even further by giving songs thumbs up or thumbs down. The free Pandora account offers a limited number of skips per hour, and is ad-supported. For $36 per year, you can subscribe to Pandora One, which gives you an ad-free experience, more skips, and a desktop app. Pandora One is hardly competitive, in terms of features, with other services, but it's a very inexpensive option for music lovers.

Why we love it

Pandora is a great way to discover new music, since it brings in artists and songs that are similar to your favorites but might be a bit off the beaten path. The ads are short and often tailored to your geographic location, which is a nice touch. The library is quite good for a free option, and the paid Pandora One account allows you to enjoy your music stations on the desktop as well as your iPhone or iPad.

Spotify Music

Streaming music for the masses

Spotify Music

Music discovery made easy

For people who love music

Spotify has led the pack in music streaming services for years, and has an excellent library of songs to choose from. The Spotify library has more than 30 million tracks, with curated playlists that make music discovery easy and fun. You can sign up for a free account that includes advertisements, or enjoy ad-free listening and the ability to download your favorite tracks with a Spotify Premium account.

Why we love it

Spotify has one of the largest libraries of music in the business, and a simple, easy-to-use interface. The app has little clutter, and provides you with outstanding ways to find new and exciting music to listen to. With a Spotify Premium account, you can download tracks for offline listening. If you want to create a playlist just for running or jogging, or for any reason you might want a certain tempo for all your tracks, the beat-matching feature works great.

Ready, Set and Play

Game nights are great for having fun and building new beef with your friends, and these apps help keep that time-honored tradition alive. They'll let you play some cards, roll some dice, and move pieces around for some healthy competition. Whether any of them end up permanently banned thanks to causing too much trouble is up to you, though.
