Completed | List3 | #19 of 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days | iPhone For My Daugher

File_000(1)

Recently, I picked up an iPhone for my Daughter which was long overdue.  With that the magical wifi suddenly appeared at home where they live and opened up the iron curtain.  This allows her to be free with communication between her friends and her and also more importantly with them for me.  I also have my older iPhone to my son since his iPod magically disappeared for many weeks after he was able to connect it to wifi at home.  It magically reappeared.  Anyways… he has my old iPhone to log into wifi at home to message me which has been sweet.

I broke out my Daughter from school one day and we went to the mall to pick up her phone and set it up and download the apps she wants and we hit “bucks” to get a fancy whipped cream drink.

Any.Do | Excellent To Do Lists | Phone App

 

To.do (my new app)

I’m a big user of Evernote and I have some tasks in Evernote that I use to see what I need to focus on.  Since Evernote is great for cloud based note taking and reference tool… it’s not the best for noting down “to-do’s” and doesn’t load quickly.

I will schedule a task using Calendar mostly if I want to block of some time to do a certain task…

With this new app… I can open it every morning and see what I need to do today or start to get “baby steps” going on something so it can be completed.  So it’s easy to postpone and pick when this task needs to be done or when I need to be reminded.

“To.do” is it.  It’s simple and easy.

The iPhone has a remarkable number of iPhone to-do app options, but one of them shines above the rest. Any.DO is our top pick thanks to its ease of use and smart feature set.  Any.do is a sharp, good-looking mobile to-do list manager.

“Moment,” a short review of everything you have on your table for the day. It also tries to keep your to-do list from getting overwhelming, and really shows you “today,” “tomorrow,” and “later,” so you don’t get overwhelmed by dates and times. It handles multiple priorities, and it integrates nicely with Cal, the calendar app from the same team.

Completed | List3 | #29 of 101 | Purchase GoPro For My Daughter

gopro-hero-3-silver-edition-2

Two years ago… I gave my Daughter my “action camera” which was a GoPro knock off that I picked up for 100 bones at Black’s Camera.  This Christmas… I picked up a Hero3 for Chantal to help her with her filmmaking.  That little action camera was passed down to Noah.  Hopefully they can shoot some creative footage and this March I’m going to get her a little laptop to help store and edit the footage.

Beme | The New Social? | Love The Angle + Wish Everyone I Liked Was On It

1-screen shot 2015-07-018

Watch the short video above and open your mind about how you and others post…

What I like about Beme is that you just shoot and you can’t edit or preview and check to see if you like that “look” before you post.  You also just share without concentrating on your phone.

I like Facebook but I miss just the true stuff you see about people like the personal pictures.  It’s all about sharing funny videos and quotes and news articles.  With many pages on FB just want “shares” to gain “reach” I’m getting less and less real status updates and real pictures from friends since there a math calculation on what Facebook feels you should see and from who.

Right now… I’m the only one on Beme that I know of… and I’m just starting to use it.  It’s just little 4 seconds and you can download the clips later to your camera roll on your phone so it will help me get little footage for my One Second Everyday Project.

I would love key people in my life to use it and I could catch up with what’s up in their world easily.   I think Beme will take off but I don’t think the world is ready yet.  I wanted to get my username locked in.  I like the “honest” sharing it offers with little glimpses that are documented.

My username is “jsdoit” and you should download the app (Android is coming soon) and follow me and start posting some Beme’s.  I would like to play around with this app.

The video by Casey above was done when it launched… so since then the app has had some tweaks to make it better.

Why not get in on “the new social” and start trying it.
