Show Notes

Series 1 Episode 27

Welcome to series 1 episode 27 of the Your App Lady Podcast!

All about apps and tech that I love and use every day.

On each episode, I’ll talk about recent tech news, recommend apps that I use myself and leave you with a great tech tip.

Tech News

New Blackberry phone model with physical keyboard.

The BlackBerry KeyOne is a collaboration between BlackBerry and TCL. This is an Android phone with a physical keyboard, combining the traditional features of the BlackBerry phones of an excellent battery life and a priority on security, with the functionality of an Android phone.

The BlackBerry KeyOne retails for about $550.

Featured App: TV and Movie Tracking

When I attended SXSW, I sat by a film student from NYU. He shared two of his favorite apps with me.

trakt.tv – iShows TV 

Trakt is a platform that does many things, but primarily keeps track of TV shows and movies you watch. It integrates with your media center or home theater PC, so everything is automatic. You can also check in from your mobile device.

We also make it easy to find where to watch movies and TV shows on hundreds of streaming sources such as Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and iTunes.

LetterBoxd Free or pro

Available for iPhone, iPad and Android

https://letterboxd.com/apps/

Letterboxd is a social network for sharing your taste in film. Use it as a diary to record your opinion about films as you watch them, or just to keep track of films you’ve watched. Showcase your favorite films on your profile page. Rate, review and tag films as you add them. Find and follow your friends to see what they’re enjoying. Keep a watchlist of films you’d like to see, and create lists/collections on any given topic.

Tech Tip

Never get lost in a mall again or go without food in an airport with Apple’s updated Maps app. The app will now have detailed maps of airports and malls across the world, showing you where different shops, restaurants, and even restrooms are located. Search the map or airport you’re going to and start exploring.
