Tim was gracious enough to share some of his latest and greatest software finds--for play--with and work Download.com readers. Engadget Editor in Chief, Tim Stevens What are your top five programs and why?
Gmail: I'd be lost without this app. There are some mail apps that are a little better, but none integrate with labels, filters, and multiple accounts like the default. FlightTrack Pro: This application (and its widget) keep me up to date on everywhere I'm going. It often knows about flight delays and cancellations before the people at the airport do. Thanks to it, I've been able to call and get rescheduled on another flight before anyone else even knew they were going to miss their connection. Well worth the Pro upgrade for TripIt integration.
Which brings me to... TripIt: It's so great to have everything in one spot, to know that when I get to the airport I have my car rental information there and--with a few taps--I can get directions to my hotel. rutormortgage on this page. EzPDFReaderPro: I use this for signing PDFs on my Note II, constantly. Hill Climb Racing: It's such a simple game, but addictive.
Do you have a preference between iOS and Android apps? internetguitar. I've spent a good amount of time on both and I was very, very near buying an iPhone 5.
But when some time was spent by me with the Note II, It was known by me was for me. The battery was needed by me life, I enjoy the big screen, and I like having the stylus really. Do you remember the first iphone app you ever downloaded? What made you choose that particular one? Oh boy, it was an alternative browser for Windows Phone way back in the day that handled remote rendering to allow Flash and speed up processing. The true name eludes me at the moment, sadly... First Look video: Art Text. Do you use any programs to help you in your professional life?
Which ones and how do they help you? Microsoft's new Office. Most of my favorite apps are productivity related and most are travel related since I'm constantly on the road. I also use Google Drive for access to documents on the go from my phone, but I'm continually disappointed by how terrible the Android application is. I can't believe Google hasn't turned it into a proper mobile office suite yet. If you were stranded on a desert island, and could only use one app, which would it be and why? I'm coming up blank!
Most of the types I would select require a data connection to be truly useful for the long-term (like Spotify), and if I had a data connection I would of course be sending an e-mail and requesting a helicopter pickup! Which social media software is your preferred for getting initiatives out and why? Twitter remains most powerful when it comes to exposure, but the Google mobile experience is far better.
That's my favorite. The Facebook is employed by me software a bunch to see what my friends are up to, but even with the recent updates I'm not particularly fond of it.
It's often slow to load images and updates. Which software do you use to distract yourself on a long flight? Any guilty pleasures? Hill Climb Racing is my guilty pleasure. I was turned on to it by a friend on Twitter and I've played it far too much, when I have five minutes to kill on a train usually, here or there.
Beyond that, I don't often have time to distract myself on flights as I'm typically trying to get caught up on e-mails, as I now am! Is there an iphone app that you think is one to watch? Why, the Engadget App, of course! Are there any interesting trends that you're noticing in app development?
Greater and better positional awareness (via GPS) plus social interaction are making apps today far more interesting than they were simply a few years ago. If you could invent your own fantasy app (any category and no restrictions), what would it be? filecloudfrog on this page. An ultimate reporter's notebook for the Samsung Note series that records sound in sync with what you're writing with the stylus.
So, I could take notes during an interview, and later, when I'm looking at those notes, tap on a particular note and hear the music that was recorded when it was written by me. There's an app, S-PEN Voice, attempting to do this now, but it needs some work before it's exactly what I'm looking for.
