Tech: Top 5 Apps

Standard

Most people have smartphones and tablets now-a-days, so it’s only right to recommend some apps every now and then. These apps I all have on my iPod Touch and are available from the iTunes app store but they should all be available on android app stores too, such as Google Play.

#1 Social Media – Instagramapps

I love Instagram, it’s an easy and fun way to keep up with the lives of your favourite people and celebrities. Instagram allows people to post images and captions instead of text posts such as statuses and tweets as seen on Facebook and Twitter.

#2 Story-based Games – Runway Life

I’ve recently been playing this game and been loving it too much. In the game, you have started your own fashion company and are required to hire models, buy clothes, and design your studio to make a successful company of your own.

#3 Wellbeing – Calm

This app allows you to meditate by listening to a calming soundtrack and looking at a calming image either with or without instruction. I find this very useful just before I go to sleep to clear my mind and I think you’ll find it equally helpful, if you also have a mind that never shuts up.

#4 Community Social Media – Strawburry17

I love this app for it brings the Strawburry17 fandom together and allows the Strawburry17 audience to interact with all the SB17 team in one place.

Strawburry17 is a YouTube channel set up and run by Meghan Camarena, who works with a whole team of brilliant people to provide interesting and unique content. See her channel here.

#5 Time Wasting Games – White Tiles, 1010! And Magic Touch

Okay, I couldn’t pick between three games but hey, three for the price of one! White Tiles is a fast paced game based on tapping a black tiled moving screen. 1010! is a tactical game using ideas based on Tetris by clearing lines in a cube by placing different shaped tiles strategically. Magic Touch is a Nitrome game which involves tracing the lines or images seen in bubbles to pop said bubbles before they reach the bottom of the screen. All three are addicting and will make you and your friends fight for the best score.

YouTube: Strawburry17

Standard

tumblr_nm1vcj6Z2z1riibkgo1_500Today I’m recommending the YouTube Channel Strawburry17 for a second time (to see my first blog click here). This is because the channel has recently released new shows and new seasons of shows after an intense shooting block. Over the past few years Meghan, Strawburry17, has been working hard to make her main channel a high quality production with a whole team working behind the scenes to make her content as good as possible. With this new season of Strawburry17, the hard work has paid off, creating awesome and unique new shows.

New shows include: Appy Hour, Kawaii Cookin, Cooking, Something New and Kyoot Toy Show. Appy Hour is hosted by Meghan and her brother J.D. to recommend their favourite apps right now. Kawaii Cookin sees Meghan using really cool sets, found in Little Tokyo L.A, to make cute little key chains or sweets. Cooking sees Meghan make something cool and edible using a pop culture reference, such as Doctor Who, Inside Out and Nintendo, as her inspiration. Something New sees Meghan tested to try new foods, or new objects, that she has never seen before, as picked out by her production team. She has been seen to try different types of Kit Kats, frozen dinners, sriracha foods and disgusting looking canned foods. Finally, Kyoot Toy Show sees Meghan unbox or create certain ‘cute’ toys and sees her demonstrate their uses in a short skit.

Some examples are below:
