Day 90 of Firsts: Get Apped Up!

31 Mar

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. ~Arthur C. Clarke

Let me just admit that until 6 months ago I probably had no idea what an app was.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’ll catch on. If you do, then I know, I know. I’m very late to the game.

In my continuing effort to embrace technology this year I just upgraded my Blackberry, which means I’m now on it full time, every minute of the day. My phone and my e-mail are now on the same device. Brilliant, but someone needs to invent a surgical snap so I can literally attach this thing to my hand. (I feel like I just hit warp speed. Beam me up Scotty!)

Now I want apps.  Today I started downloading my first with some help from photojournalist Brian Iacone.

Too bad there’s no app for cook dinner. There is one for order dinner!  I like it. 

Know a great free app I should have?  Hook me up.  I’m ready.

    You HAVE to get the Shazam app, it’s so helpful! You hit a button when you hear a song you like and want to know what it is… the app analyzes it and 1. tells you the song and artist, and 2. allows you to buy it from iTunes on the spot. I’ve discovered a lot of great music this way from hearing songs in coffee shops, at weddings, you name it.

    Yelp would also be good for you… it helps you find restaurants, stores, etc near you (it uses the GPS in your phone) and see how others have rated them before you decide to go. I use it a lot to find good restaurants when I travel.
