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!

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!
