Continuing app stor-y-age

My Apps (2) – Like anyone else who travels and like to take photo’s or work with important data, knows you’ll have to make a back-up by transferring the content over to a memory card or a handy app as Dropbox. This file-hosting service offers cloud storage for all your data & documents synchronizing directly from your smart-phone. A great way to make back-ups, uploads your camera shots in a whiz from your desk PC and across other working stations as well. Really love the simplicity and its sharing tool, at the moment I have earned even extra storage space by connecting other stations, referring, linking to Twitter, send like tweets and even a Samsung promotion delivered bonus storage. All that accumulating to a whooping 51.25GB it sure does sounds a lot to me, but who knows how rapidly I could fill up that space with what I’ve been working on during this month.

I’d featured the Watermark App in my previous post but just having had a discussion on intellectual property and use of photos on products am mentioning it again. For copyright security you have options to be barely visible or plain bold, you can also add a personal message or fun graphics. Have a look at this Add Watermark Android review by AppEggs with info and alternative options.

I received this tip from Elaine Ching from the The Brandroom and webshop TrunkV introducing and importing Asian fashion brands. Will feature an upcoming post containing their new website showing latest trends with clothing and accessories items. I very much like their slogan: “It’s more fun if you are the Lucky One”.

Another productive mobile app is BufferApp, a great twitter app for multiple social media accounts and it connects WordPress too with a plug-in very practical. This is a service that stacks your tweets and publishes at defined times, by scheduling you can organize your work flow more efficiently by buffering in advance. Hence it’s appropriate name!

The most appealing features must be bit.ly shortening of links and and analytic’s showing the reach of your tweets by clicks, re-tweets, mentions or marked them as favourite. Thereby identifying your followers profile, a definite keeper on my App list.

In the beginning just looking at my time-line was enough, well that changed over time including the use of more platforms it was time to re-organize. I had downloaded and deleted quite a few tools, while comparing my own findings with other users reviews on pros & cons, I concluded there is not a perfect app yet including all my preferences.

The social media dashboards I have installed; free version HootSuite on the PC and Ubersocial for my Smartphone & Tablet. Initially used both smartphone applications side by side but gravitated towards Ubersocial, it has a clean feel and in my view better equipped for smartphones. Having said this everyone each own preferences there is no argumentation when it rotates around “like”, functionality will become apparent with a lot of trial and error process during the course of daily intensive usage.

Let me know what app clients you use and share your experience and/or findings. Always happy to learn more or even better if you have a review of a new app breathing ‘easy’ all the way.
