App In The Air

Today I flew to Stockholm again this morning for a leadership course at work and took a flight back home to Gothenburg and every single time I use the app App in the air. Suprisingly, this might be one of my favorit apps and I will break it down for you and explain why.

  1. All the info I want!
    Yes, that’s right. It gives me all the info that I want, when I need it. When the check-in closes, when boarding starts, what gate I need to be at, when it leaves, when I should arrive and delays of there i any. Just magnificent. This is just how I want technology to work.
  2. Tracks me
    This might be scary to some people but I find in fantastict I can look back and see where and when I’ve been to different places in the world when I’ve been flying. I even gives me home many kilometers and how many hours I’ve spent flying. In fact it even tells me what plane models I’ve flue with and what airlines.
  3. Beautiful and Easy
    The app is just beautiful and shows with great grapics the statistics and the trips I’ve done on a map and then there are small acheivments thats fun to reach and really simple and easy to use.

    Bonus. It works with my Apple Watch which feeds me the most importat info that I want without even have to take my phone out of the pocket.

New iPhone 6S

I’m not the first one to buy it and it might not be a sensation but it’s the first iPhone that I bought myself and not have inherited by someone else in a very long time. So it  feels great to have a new phone and have bought it and made most setups tonight. Was an early Christmas gift to myself.

Guess that it also will be a positive thing for the blog with a better camera in my phone and pretty sure it will work great as a device and took for the blog as well.

So looking forward to using it more and really try it out more.  

Instagram cleaning

I’ve been on Instagram for a couple of years now but a few days ago I realized that it’s time to do something about my instagramfeed. I realized that it consisted of several users that I just flip by and have no interest in anymore.

That’s when I decided to update and customize my feed to a one where I follow people I care about or enjoy. The integers must go. So that’s why I now check out the feed and reflex if the once I follow should stay in the feed or be cleaned away.

However this doesn’t mean that I’m just are cutting and are cleaning away people, I’m also looking for new interesting or funny people to follow so you have any recommendations please tell me I would be happy to check it out.

Trying the Boomerang app

For the last few days I’ve been trying the app Boomerang that’s the latest app from Instagram and Facebook. Real simple design and looks good and easy to use but to be honest not very useful. Only time I’ve used in a good was so far is when I threw leafs in the park last Sunday.

To summarize, design and user friendliness is great but purpose of the app is a bit more unclear to me.

Advertising on Instagram

It’s been talk about it for a while but until today I’ve never seen it in Sweden or Norway but now has it obviously also reached us in Scandinavia. 

I think is okay as long as Instagram is a free app and network but only as long as they can do it in a good way with information that I might be interested in and  it should look good and be relevant. As long as it is these thing I think I can handle it, if not I will most likely decrease my use if Instagram.

By the way congratulation SAS for your free extra advertising, your welcome.

  

Tech evening

Not so much photos on the blog lately but I’m experiences a few problem when I try to upload them but I’m working in the problem. This is really important for be right now because I just transferred a lot of pictures from this summer to my Mac and super excited to share it with you. 

I also updating my iOS units right now and preparing them for the Apple event next week where I expect iOS9 to all my devices. And I really hoping for a new iPhone as well.

Refection on historical storage space at computers

Spending some time in front of my Mac and trying to organize some files and clear some storage at my computer. I see that Ive just got 15 GB left and thinks “that’s nothing”. But really? When I started to use computers 15 GB of storage where so much storage that you couldn’t even imagine it. At the first computers I used there storage space where in MB. Yes, I’m that old for all you younger readers. It’s just funny when you reflect upon it and realize how far your views and perspectives in a matter can change without you even noticing it.

But I love to have a lot of storage spac for my files and because I’m like to photograp I have today several USB drives with storage space in TB.
