Sometimes there are big names on here, but there is rarely anything of interest or something I would personally go out of my way for. If you are just looking for something music related to do - here's a site that lists a handful of things.

I really don't know why anyone would give Groupon anything less than 5 stars. I use it frequently to purchase discounts and other coupons and I've never had a problem with anything that I've bought through Groupon. I even know someone who purchased a vacation through the site and everything went as planned.

Sometimes this site isn't always kept up to date. I can remember one instance where a friend had sold their house and several weeks later it was still listed on Zillow as for sale! I'd recommend using Zillow as cautiously as you use Wikipedia.

They only have 5 themes that are free, which is a big bummer, but they are currently having a sale which makes the premium themes a bit cheaper. What I do like about this site is that they offer other plugins and extensions besides themes.

An ok site for WordPress themes. I can't say that they're too pricy because a lot of themes are around $55. Right now I'm only looking for free themes and they do have a couple to choose from, I'd like to see a few more and the same goes for the premium ones. I understand they take a long time to make, but isn't that what this website is all about?

I definitely don't buy it that you're training your brain while you play these games, but I can't say that I don't enjoy them. Much better games than Candy Crush!

Send files from your phone to computer or vice versa, I don't have any complaints. It's worked every time I've used it.

I first started using this app after I saw it on Ellen many months ago and I was really excited for it. Check into TV, earn points and win prizes, pretty awesome. Usually as the months go on, these kinds of things are supposed to get better, but not Viggle. It had gotten to a point where I was constantly being checked out of a show I had checked into or it wouldn't recognize the audio. The funny thing was that I most often had a problem with the shows that were featured. Big disappointment, I stopped using it about a month ago because it was too unreliable.

My problem with Hinge is that it only works if your Facebook friends' friends are using the app, otherwise it's pointless. Even at that you can always just look through your friends' friends list and find potential dates. I'm not a huge fan of Hinge, there are other dating apps that are better.

I'm so happy I discovered this texting app. I love it because I can be on Instagram and reply to a text at the same time. The text doesn't have to wait. It can take a little getting used to some of the controls like how to make the chat box bigger or smaller, but altogether I absolutely love it. It's my default messaging on my phone.

This site does exactly what it says, allows you to tweet things longer than 140 characters. Though I do agree with Terri in that if it's longer than 140 characters it belongs on a blog or Facebook, but sometimes you're in a heated discussion or just have more to say! I also like how it keeps track how many times your twit longer has been tweeted or shared.

If you have $50 to spend on a month's worth of cooking classes, then this is a great service. I did it and learned quite a bit. Unfortunately I feel like I could have learned a lot of it from carefully crawling through Youtube videos. This is only worth it if you don't have much time and want a guided class.

I plan a lot of corporate events so i was really excited when I heard about Eventup. The design is really nice and the site is super easy to navigate, but the features are really sub par. They don't offer anything special against their competitors, and I feel like all the quotes are ridiculously overpriced. I would have a better job just calling places up instead of booking through Eventup.

I actually think Alltrails is great if you are a big hiker. It is much more convenient than buying those overpriced guides. And all the content is updated regularly by the very active community. Totally worth checking out if you are an outdoorsy person!

My friend just sent me a video from this website and I was in shock that other people knew about it slash used it! It looks horrible, but I definitely laughed like crazy at the video I received. Take a look at Yawning Looks Like Yelling!

Once I program the "watchdog" to find my flights,the emails just get plain annoying. I recommend only "turning it on" when you are really on the lookout for flights - not just as a casual thing.

I'll admit it. I'm no twitter pro. Sometimes I use just above the limit of characters. I doubt my friends mind clicking the link to see what I am actually trying to express. I love this thing.

I think this is a really cute idea. Yes, I'm a guy saying that an app specifically for childrens' artwork is "cute". I would just hope there is a way to also back up the pictures so that it doesn't get deleted with the app. Or they could have print/collage options for the pictures. Moms would be totally into that - hello scrapbooking.

There is no way anything on this site is genuine. Everyone is paying for their review one way or another. I'm sure restaurant group PR people are all over getting their clients mentioned on this site thanks to the Food Network badge of honor.

Wow I had heard great things about SparkPeople and had read about it in health magazines and blogs. When I went to the site I was completely disappointed in the lack of quality of the site. It's true! Everything looks like an ad!

This site has a handful of different programs that help people get on track to lose weight, lower blood pressure, and more. It's great that there are people out there trying to make the world a healthier place!
