At the end of March, Apple officially unveiled a brand new app called “Clips.” It’s a new way to make quick edits to videos and then share them to social networks.
If you’re like me, you come across interesting YouTube videos all the time. Someone shares a link with you in WhatsApp. A creator you follow raves about a video they loved on Twitter. You discover a Reddit thread filled with gems. But there’s no way you can watch those videos right then. You’re only goofing off from work for 15 minutes, you don’t actually have the time to watch that 5-minute video right now. And so that video is lost in the oblivion that is your browser history.
You won’t really feel at home on your iPhone until all your important data is all here. All your contacts, emails, photos and videos. You might be wondering, how exactly to make that happen? While it’s not as seamless as going to another Android phone, it’s not as soul-sucking as you might imagine. Thanks to a couple of apps (including Apple’s own), you’ll be able to transfer all the data, wirelessly, when you binge on a TV show or two.
It’s been almost a year since SoundCloud announced and rolled out its “Go” feature, which is a $9.99 per month subscription service that drops the ads.
Instagram stories are a fun way to keep everyone in loop with your personal life without always posting a permanent photo. Though Instagram users tend to have far more followers than on Snapchat, which means your story is exposed to even more people. While that may be good for exposure, you may not want all of those prying eyes seeing what you’re up to.
When it comes to read-it-later services, platforms that let you save articles to check up on later, Pocket has been one of the go-to services.
While mobile payment services aren’t mainstream just yet, at least not outside of the tech savvy bubbles of New York and San Francisco, they’re growing. It seems like at the beginning, people had trust issues with linking their debit cards and bank accounts to these apps, issues that are slowly disappearing. With more users on board, apps like Venmo and Square Cash become more useful since it’s that much easier to send and receive money to/from friends.
