Your App Lady
Series 1 Episode 34
Welcome to series 1 episode 34 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.
TV White Space
Even in the most developed countries, there are huge gaps in internet access. Fixed broadband access is unaffordable for 3.9 billion people around the world. In the U.S., about 72 percent of people have home broadband internet access, but 60 million people are still living without it. According to Pew Research, part of the reason for this lag in adoption is the expense of broadband internet.
White Space refers to the unused broadcasting frequencies in the wireless spectrum. Television networks leave gaps between channels for buffering purposes, and this space in the wireless spectrum is similar to what is used for 4G so it can be used to deliver widespread broadband internet.
Typical home Wi-Fi can travel through two walls. White Space broadband can travel up to 10 kilometers, through vegetation, buildings, and other obstacles

Featured App: Clips
Clips – Apple’s recently launched video editing app feels like a natural evolution of the iPhone’s camera. The tool makes it possible to stitch together photos and videos, all while letting users add elements like text, emojis, and filters. Plenty of apps include such capabilities, but Clips offers a bit more intelligence when it comes to adding captions. When shooting a video, a user can simply dictate a subtitle and the app will automatically add it in sync with what’s happening on screen.
This is a great list of tech gifts for your favorite graduate! Some of my favorites include:
1) Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 30W Power Delivery Charger – this power bank will charge a laptop and a smartphone at the same time!
2) GoPro Hero6 Black – a tiny, fun camera that can be attached to helmets and other items (even the hood of your car).
3) DR.J (2018 Upgraded) +10% Lumens 4Inch Mini Projector with 170″ Display – This little projector is under $100 and can be connected with a wireless adapter to a laptop or phone to show movies on a wall.
