Apps I’m currently into…
TED I love the concept of TED. This app includes talks from some of the world’s most intriguing people: education radicals, tech geniuses, medical mavericks, business gurus, music legends and then some. If you do not already know what TED is, have a listen to this talk by model Cameron Russell who talks about how she won the genetic lottery TEDTalk.
Pic Collage For the pictures you take via all the photo apps you may be using, this app lets you organise those pictures into collages, its fast and simple to use and fun way to present your treasured pictures.
DailyArt – Daily Dose of Art This app publishes one piece of fine art every day, along with it you receive a description of the piece and a little tittle-tattle about the painting, the artist or the époque when it was produced. It is great for someone like me who appreciates art but is always left wondering about the story behind the painting.
Hello Vino I’ve never considered myself a wine connoisseur, I generally leave wine ordering for the person(s) I’m out with, but this app is great when you are entertaining and want to be a bit more experimental with your wine choices.
Heads Up! I was at a dinner the other night and we played this and it was a riot especially seeing as we were a little bit drunk. It’s basically the game Ellen plays on her show, kind of a modern take on charades and guess who; from naming celebrities, to singing to silly accents – you guess the word on the card (app) that’s on your head from your friend’s clues before the timer runs out.
Scutify This is my newest app, which is like an all-in-one way to analyze the markets. It is described as a ‘social media aggregator collating all the scuttlebutt’ on Stocks, Indexes, FX and Commodities. It gives you access to up-to-date information via tweets, news, videos and blogs.
