Spotify 'For Music' TV Ad: Emotive or Odd?

image

I saw an ad for Spotify the other night while I was watching the season premiere of NBC’s The Voice (So excited for this season! I don’t want to like Blake Sheldon, but I do). I thought to myself “Huh. I didn’t know Spotify was advertising on TV now!” After a little investigating, I found two more new Spotify ads on YouTube. This is a big move for the on-demand music service, and rumor has it that Spotify is planning to add video streaming to its existing music service to compete with Netflix and HBO. In light of that, the big-time marketing push makes sense. But that’s not what we’re here to talk about. Let’s dish about the ads, shall we?

3 Places to Find the Best Free Apps

image

Since I had so much fun writing my last post about AppsGoneFree, I thought I’d follow up with a quick look at a few other places to find great free apps. After all, there are about 750,000 live apps on iTunes and it gets harder and harder every day to find what you need. I know it frustrates me, and it probably frustrates you too.

The good news is certain websites and apps are specifically designed to narrow your choices and help you find quality apps that are free or on sale for a limited time.

Here are some of the best I found:



4 Awesome Offerings from Apps Gone Free

image

Sometimes you don’t know you need something until someone shows it to you, and you realize, “That’s so cool! I need that!”

That’s why I’m totally digging Apps Gone Free (FREE) right now. Unlike AppGratis, which offers one free app per day, Apps Gone Free offers several paid apps free for a limited time. Some days there are more; some days less, but every day there’s fun! It’s awesome because you get a random bunch of apps to browse through and decide if it interests you or not. I love it so much I’ve actually found myself checking it first thing in the morning even before I’ve had my coffee or checked my email!

Cold Weather Apps: For Freezing Your Tookus Off

We’re in the dead of it now, iPhone Life-ers!  It’s winter and it’s colder than a polar bear’s nose out there!

I was walking to my car the other day, and my eyes literally iced over! I thought I might be blinded for life!  I’m wearing ski goggles all the time from now on.

The Greatest Show on Earth: CES 2013!

Sadly, iPhone Life-ers, I did not get to go. This is totally my thing, too.  I love me some techie geek gadgets! But, I’m reduced to living vicariously through the Internet and I have to say that there are some really fun things coming our way! 

Here are a few of my favorites.

Shedding Light on a Low-Light Situation

One of the biggest and most anticipated improvements in the iPhone 5 revolves around the camera. Smartphones in general have become the de facto "point and shoot" that people carry around, and why not?  They're always in our hands/pockets/purses anyway, so why bother with anything else?

In the past, the answer to that question basically boiled down to "because they take better pictures."  So when Apple says they're upgrading the iPhone camera, people listen!  I know I was super stoked about it, iPhone Life-ers!  And I still am, except for one thing:  low light photography.
