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.
Winter Wake Up
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.
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.
Here we are again, iPhone Life-ers.
It’s the holidays.
And what would a December article be without some nifty little gift suggestions?
It wouldn’t be very festive, would it? In fact, it would be downright depressing, so in order to avoid that mess, let’s do this thing!
Adam Harvey’s holiday gift/stocking stuffer guide begins now!
I find myself at quite a few networking events, iPhone Life-ers. By now, I have a pretty decent memory for names and faces, but sometimes, if I’ve met a bunch of people at the same event, I just can’t remember all the details. So, I’ve been looking for a few apps to help me out because it really stinks to fumble desperately to recall who the heck someone is, knowing full well that I’ve met them before. Isn’t that embarrassing?
Luckily, I found some promising looking apps to help me stay organized and keep track of all the people I meet.
My wife thinks I just watch too much of AMC’s The Walking Dead, but I tell her we can’t be too careful.
What if this can really happen?
Who are we to say that it’s impossible, right?
So, since “always be prepared” is one of my mottos, I think it’s a good idea to get my iPhone ready for that horrible day when the zombies come to get us. Aside from my massive stores of white chocolate truffles, coffee and vodka (who needs water?), I also have a top-secret underground zombie proof bunker. Plus, I’ve got some apps loaded up on my phone.
I finally got my iPhone 5 a short time ago.
It comes as a great shock to everyone I know (including myself) that I did not have one the instant they became available. Alas, the stars did not align themselves as they should have and I became one of the unfortunate ones, left without a new iPhone.
I felt lonely, confused, naked.
I was afraid to leave the house for fear that everyone I met on the street could see through my pants pocket and know that the phone I carried was but a mere 4S.
Me, Adam Harvey. iPhone Lover. Devotee.
The humiliation, iPhone Life-ers!
I didn’t want to say anything about iOS 6 until I had some time to get used to it and decide what I think are some of the most useful updates. And probably to your surprise and relief, I’m not going to complain about the m-a-p-s. They know it’s broken, they’ve apologized, suggested alternatives, and they’re gonna fix the heck out of it for us. It’s gonna rock our worlds, you guys. I’m sure of it.
I’m a frequent flyer on Facebook, so I’m pretty happy with the Facebook integration because it makes sharing photos and making status updates way easier.
Admittedly, I don’t have a ton of time to waste. Running a business takes up pretty much all of my mental space and energy, but sometimes, I just need to veg out a little bit. If I’m not watching any of my favorite reality TV shows like The Pitch, Flipping Out, or Shark Tank, I just might pick up my iPad for a little mindless fun. Here’s a list of my go-to favorites.
I just realized the other day that I talk about apps to you guys all the time, but I never talk about how they’re actually made. And this is a huge oversight on my part, because I make them. Designing apps is one of the major things we do at our studio! Why haven’t I brought you to the office to show you around?
I always love a good behind-the-scenes peek, don’t you?
Apps appear on the device in the palm of your hand as if by magic, but there’s so much that goes into planning, designing and coding them!
