You know when you get stressed to the point where you lose track of what is important to stress about and what isn't? Tell me that happens to you too. That's where I am right now.

Daisy, who is also working on this Windows Phone project, suggested I get help with this using the phone -- and thereby get a post out of it for the sponsor too -- WIN WIN.

She, too, recently made the switch to a Windows Phone so she tried out a few apps and found the one she thought I’d like best: an app called The Right Vibes.
