Apps: The Kick to Pick app names your baby

McClatchy-Tribune

As a parents, you know that an iPhone can be a great distraction for a grumpy child on a long trip, a handy way to keep in touch with your family, and now, it can also take care of your very first parenting decision _ what to name your child.

The iPhone app Kick to Pick allows your unborn baby to assist it in finding just the right name. Expectant moms just put the phone up to their belly, and using the built-in accelerometer, the app detects movement and scrolls through a list of thousands of potential names.

Even if you don’t like the name it picks, it’s more fun than reading through a stack of baby name books.

The app is available in the iTunes App Store for .99 cents.
