KRLD App Of The Day
THURSDAY: NYT Cooking
The New York Times might have the greatest collection of recipes that you could want in one place. Now they’re all on one app that’s free today. The app has access to more than 15 thousand recipes, each with photos and step by step instructions on how to make just about anything. They’re organized by diet, the kind of food, style of cooking. You can even put your faves into your recipe box in the app. It can also learn your tastes and make recommendations for new recipes you might not have thought of. NYT Cooking. It’s brand new from the New York Times Cooking section.
WEDNESDAY (9/17): Vizzywig 4K
This app is in the news today because it’s just about the most expensive app on iTunes ever. It’s for the iPhone 5S. And what it does: It uses technology to turn still photos into a 4K video. It captures photos at 24 per second to make it look like a 4K film, complete with audio and titles and credits. You can then upload your film to YouTube. Here’s where it gets tricky. You really have to want this app. The Vizzywig 4K is $1,000 on iTunes. The maker wanted to charge more, but Apple wouldn’t let him.
People love using their phones for pictures and NOT just selfies. There are some incredible panoramic shots that you can see. Now you can take them yourself. This app lets you take 360 degree full panoramic shots. It then lets you put those shots on Google Maps if you wish to. There are dozens of these shots to share and look at as well.
MONDAY (9/15): numberFire Questions
This one is for the Fantasy Football players. Or if you just want to be the smartest person in your office about sports of any kind. It runs all the stats and numbers of professional sports and lets you know who’s hot and who’s not for a particular week. Remember how Moneyball worked? They picked players based on math. This app does the same thing.
FRIDAY (9/12): Photo Reminders
We’re busy, we have a lot on our minds. Sometimes a lot of words on a screen looks like blah, blah, blah, blah. You can now set reminders for yourself and say it with pictures. You can take a photo straight from the app, or take a picture on your own and then associate it with the event. The app then reminds you when it’s time for that event. You can even use it to make voice notes for an event.
THURSDAY (9/11): Yik Yak
If you don’t know about this app, you should because if you have teens, they know about it and they’re using it. It’s a social media app, but the messages are anonymous so they can tend to get a bit…. much. The app has location turned on so anyone within 5 or 10 miles can see what’s being posted on the site, even if they’re not friends. Some say this app is the next big thing.
