Dear Alice and Ryan,
Congratulations on your new fondleslabs, and welcome to the 90% of humanity that now spend all their time staring at their phones. Since I am also too busy staring at my phone to talk to you, I thought that you might appreciate a list of the things I am usually staring at, so you can stare at them too.
I’ve left out obvious things you probably already found on your own, like Facebook and Google mail, and linked to the free versions of everything, though some of these I’ve already paid for the pro one, so I can’t be too sure they will work the same.
Hope this is useful,
You put a bookmark in your browser and when you see something you want to read later, you click it. When you decide to read it, it shows you a reformated page for easy reading. It even works with blog posts in Feedly.
So I know when you’ve posted to your blog.
I use this instead of the radio now. Naturally, this is better over wifi. My favourite channels are New York’s classical radio station and soulfood radio, out of Germany
Internet streaming player
This allows you to stream music from online music collection running the subsonic PC program (like your brother’s). Like Tune In Radio, this is less useful without loads of bandwidth. However, you can cue up a whole load of songs while on wifi, and it will save them to your phone so you can listen to them later in ‘offline’ mode. It’s how I get most of my music to my phone. Works with video too.
Screen darkener for night time browsing
It’s a guitar tuner. I thought Ryan might find this useful.
All my love,
