Give Mom the day off and let your Samsung Smart TV apps treat her to a relaxing Mother's Day at home, featuring her favorite entertainment. Start Mother's Day off right with a casual Sunday brunch. Just like the name promises, the Easy Brunch Ideas app will give you easy-to-make recipes and step-by-step instructions to prepare a relaxing and delicious brunch at home.
Whether Mom's a TV fan or movie buff—or both—she can sit back and relax with her favorite entertainment all during Mother's Day. The Hulu Plus app gives exclusive access to every episode, all season long, of some of the most popular current shows, plus cult classics and full-series runs of Mom's all-time favorites. Plan a movie marathon with the VUDU app—featuring an enormous HD movie library of the newest blockbusters, film classics and more, VUDU brings the cinematic experience home with stunning HDX picture quality and theater-worthy Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound. If Mom loves music, then she'll love the live concert experiences on the Qello app. With over 500 concerts from artists in every genre of music, Qello gives Mom an all-access pass to live music and documentaries in breathtaking HD.
Make Mom the center of attention on a fun night out with the whole family. Start with a great dinner—the YPtv app puts the Yellow Pages right on your Smart TV so you can search restaurants in your area, read reviews, compare menus and find offers and events, including special prix-fixe menus for Mother's Day.
After dinner, make Mom feel special by treating her to a movie or live theater event. Find a movie that Mom is sure to love with the Fandango Movies app, where you can search all films currently playing, watch stunning HD theatrical trailers, read reviews from critics and moviegoers alike, and find out where and when your movie is showing. If you're planning to splurge and take Mom out to a live show, The Broadway Channel app lets you preview the best of Broadway, Las Vegas and London's West End right in your living room, along with exclusive cast interviews, ticketing information and box office hours.
Make Mom's day extra-special with a personalized playlist of her favorite music. Just by selecting some of her most-loved artists, songs, or genres, the brilliantly intuitive Pandora app will create a customized "radio" station of great music that's tailor-made just for Mom. Use the MOG Music app to find songs that express what Mom means to the whole family, or to create a playlist of her favorite songs and artists—MOG Music's on-demand service has access to over 14 million songs and one million full albums.
Photos and videos are the perfect way to make memories, and your Samsung Smart TV has apps that make it easier than ever to share them with the whole family.
Collect cherished family photos and then use the Picasa app to view them as a brilliant full-screen slideshow. The Picasa app also lets you make new memories of Mother' Day 2012—just snap photos with your phone or Wi-Fi enabled camera, send to your Picasa account, and share instantly on your Samsung Smart TV. If you have an Android or iOS device, the Samsung Smart TV SwipeIt app lets you share photos and video right from your device, and allows multiple users to share on the same TV, so everyone can snap and show family photos.
If the whole family can't be together on Mother's Day, the YouTube app allows even far-flung family members to share their feelings with Mom on her special day. Invite everyone to make their own Mother's Day video greeting—sentimental, hilarious or hilariously sentimental—then upload them to YouTube and play them all for Mom on the big screen, for a Mother's Day moment she'll never forget.
These are just a few of the ways that Samsung Smart TV apps can help you plan a memorable Mother's Day. To see the complete list of apps for your Samsung Smart TV, visit Samsung Apps, and to find great gifts that your Mom will love, check out our Mother's Day Gift Guide.
