I have 209 apps on my Nexus 6 smartphone but according to my memory stats I only use on average about 35 of these apps daily. So here is a quick list of my 7 favorite apps. I have intentionally skipped apps like email, facebook, maps, photos, calendar etc. because they are in everyone’s daily usage. All these apps run on the iPhone too.
Pocket – a fantastic “read later” way of saving important data
Feedly – a superb “News Feed” App.
Merlin – Daily Esoteric news
Moves – a great pedometer
Prisma – My absolute favorite photo editing app
IMDB – great info on movies and tv shows
Flickr – Connecting with my photo buddies around the world
Very early this morning a truck or a bus cut our low lying electrical cable from the street to the house. pulling out the pole and disconnecting our alarm box for the electrical fence. I had to make numerous phone calls to the alarm company, police, electric company and as it turns out to the landlord because the electric company would not connect the electricity until we had a new pole. Add to the confusion my wife was pet sitting and I was supposed to meet her at noon
Cut to the chase my phone after 25 phone calls my phone battery was at 15 % at noon. Needless to say without electricity I could not charge my smartphone battery. To the rescue came my Aukey quick charger and within 30 minutes I was at full power. A $20 gadget is priceless during an emergency.
Part of the joy living in a 460 year old colonial city is the buildings and the time of the day the sun illuminates those buildings. I always have my Nexus 6 Smartphone with me. Below are the same church shot. The first one is unedited and the second I used Snapseed, a photo editing app available for both Android and IOS to remove the power lines.
I then added some more shots to Google Photos to create a short movie. Enjoy.
4 years ago I shot the video below with my Canon HD Vixia Camcorder. Now the camcorder gathers dust in my closet since I shoot all my videos with my Nexus 6 smartphone with 4K resolution. Never miss a photo or a video because my smartphone is always in my pocket.
Please take 10 seconds and take the poll. Enjoy the video
