19 Oct Most used Apps: Dan, Co Founder
Some of our favourite apps, what are yours?
JUST A LITTLE ABOUT US
By Marissa Waite
After asking Kat about her favourite apps, we thought we’d ask ask a few more of our ninjas. We turned to Dan to see what his favourite and most used apps are.
Shazam is my all time favourite app. I really love not having to now write down or try and remember great songs I hear while I’m out and about. The app helps you to identify a song or tune playing around you. You can use it to find out a song play at your locale or you can use it to figure out the song playing in the TV ad you just saw.
I really love the further development for the api and integration with Spotify. It allows a song to be captured and added directly into a specific Spotify folder. So now it is there and ready for me to listen at a time that suits.
Spotify is probably my favourite app in which to collate and host all of my music. Especially while I’m on-the-go. I really love the new ‘discover weekly’ feature. It creates a new playlist every week based on my listening history and other activity. This keeps my music updated and fresh with a great selection of music suggestions to suit me.
I would certainly recommend using the premium version as this allows me to create and save playlists that I can listen to offline.
Snapseed is a photo editing app, now owned by Google, and it is my go-to for the majority of my iphone-ography editing on-the-move. The app has a great interface and user experience. Plus, unlike a lot of photo editing apps it has heaps of great customisable features as well as lots of presets for some of those of us that might be new to editing.
The best part of the app is the ability to save copies of my edits. That way they may be edited further in the future while still retaining the all editing information.
As you can tell, I do a lot of iPhone photography and Camera+ is my go to. It is a great app that allows me to shoot full sized raw tiff files which are at the maximum of the iPhone’s capacity.
The standard camera app on the iPhone creates a much smaller, lower resolution and automatically edited jpeg. It is much more limited and doesn’t provide the lossless compression that camera + provides.
In my opinion, linking this app with Snapseed for editing creates a formidable duo for iPhone photography.
TLC is an app I used quite a bit while I’m down in London. I think it’s a great little app for any Londoner who likes to frequent all the great bars and clubs on offer in London. It allows me to book a table and/or get on the guestlist while on the move. So that I can ensure myself a a great spot in a great venue when the weekend arrives.
The app is also a great way to keep up-to-date with the various events that TLC is involved in throughout the year.
