Apps, apps, and more apps!

At YAY we subscribe on a numer of magazine, one of them is Entrepreneur Magazine. This issue they focused on apps for mobile phones: What apps should you have, and what apps should you develop for your business? We are working on a couple of small apps here at YAY for our photographers and customers, and we’ve been trying to figure out what would be a great app for stock photo buyers. It’s a challenging process, as you have to make something good enough to get noticed by the masses. But I’m sure we’ll get there – ¬†there’s a lot of creative thinking at YAY, and we have many creative people around us as well!

Entrepreneur gave a list of great apps for your smart phone. For personal use, my favorite apps are:

Spotify – let you stream music, legal and almost free! Not available in the U.S.
Shazam – I love music, and with Shazam I know what music is playing.
Pzizz – when working long hours power napping and a good night sleep is important. Pzizz is great for calming down a busy mind!
Shopper – a simple solution to a simple problem: organizing the shopping.

Also, I love the map with GPS – I used to get lost all the time, now I don’t :)

It’s always fun with new apps, so if you have any recommendations I’d love to hear them!

Kiva – Loans that change lives

We’ve just updated our Kiva account, adding some more loans. We urge all our photographers and customers to join us at Kiva, and help make a difference.

We also recommend you to watch the TED-video featuring Jessica Jackley, co-founder of Kiva.

What do you think of people in poverty? Maybe what Jessica Jackley once did: “they” need “our” help, in the form of a few coins in a jar. The co-founder of Kiva.org talks about how her attitude changed — and how her work with microloans has brought new power to people who live on a few dollars a day.

Cheers,

Linda :)
