The Best of 2015

WOW.  It is the end of an absolutely amazing year!  I can not BELIEVE how fast 2015 flew by!  It was the year of truly great things happening for me, and my family and friends!  I got engaged, and got Maggie! My best friend has a baby on the way! One of my closest friends that I met from BLOGGING also has a baby on the way!  The good news kept coming, and I loved 2015 for that very reason!  But it was ALSO a great year in books, in tech, and in food and fitness! I have carefully chosen some of my absolute favorites from the YEAR to showcase for you today!  I hope you enjoy them!

Tech Talk: Battle of the Music Apps [Spotify vs. Apple]

newtechtalkTech Talk: Battle of the Music Apps [Spotify vs. Apple]

Hello, hello! Welcome to a SPECIAL EDITION Tech Talk: Battle of the Music Apps [Spotify vs. Apple] It has been over a month since Apple released their much anticipated “Spotify Killer.”  Within that month, I have tested it out, analyzed it, decided what I like, what I don’t, and compared it to my all time favorite app, Spotify.  Now of course, to each their own.  Each has its advantages, and disadvantages.  I will divulge all that information here, in a pro vs. con style review for each application.  I leave the decision to each of you.  Each service has a cost for these premium services [$10] and I hope that you try both out yourself before diving into either as a subscription service!

newtechtalkhow to save time with buffer

 

Some of you may know what Buffer is, while others may not, so real quick I will run down what the application does. I personally think it is a real time saver, and it allows you to do multiple things, all on one platform!

As a FREE user, it allows you to connect your Facebook and Twitter to your Buffer account.  From there you can:

  • Create a posting schedule
  • Share your tweets at specific times daily
  • Check your analytics 
  • Download the Browser Extension
  • Share Other’s/Your Own Content

Tech Talk: Calendars 5 by Readdle

 

newtechtalkI am a PLANNER.  I have a paper planner, and a computer planner [standard iCal app on Macbook!] but for my iPhone I’m super picky.  I DESPISE the stock Calendar app so I opted for a different one. I have tried many but for me the absolute favorite is Calendars by Readdle.  You get many view options, predictive text, recurring event ability, a task tab, and a widget! To say the least, it is the BEST.  PLUS, my FAVE: COLOR CODING OPTIONS.  YUP.  Major plus!
