DENVER ( MainStreet) -- Chores and errands aren't glamorous but they must get done. So I'm grateful that someone took time to make mobile apps to serve mundane duties. Here are a few of the notables.
Fill a prescription:
You can always call in a prescription refill, but Walgreen's app makes life so simple by using the mobile device's camera to scan an empty bottle's barcode. There's no need to log in or have fat fingers fumbling on the keyboard typing in account numbers. The scan automatically sends a request to your designated Walgreens (WAG). Now if only the pharmacy could only beam the meds over a 4G connection.
Available on iOS, Android, Blackberry (free): Check out the Walgreen's app here.
