Tech TalkJust for fun, here are a few of my favorite apps and software programs. This list will probably change occasionally as I find new programs/apps that I like better.
ScanLife - Having tried a variety of QR readers, I have found that this free app is the best. It scans QR codes, and I've never had it fail to open one. On top of that, you can use it to scan bar codes and check prices as well! I believe it is available for both Android and iPhone.
Mint - Yes, I am one of those budgeter people. Honestly, every Christian should be as a wise steward. I use Mint, as I have found it to be the easiest and best budget app available (oh, and it is free - big plus). It does everything except run reports. So, if you need reports, look further (not sure where), but for everything else budget and finance-tracking related, Mint is my go-to. (Apple, Android - also a great app for Mac)
iWriteMusic - I have not tried all the music writing smartphone/tablet apps. However, I do believe from the ones I have tried that this one is the very best. This is a very full-featured and easy-to-use notation software, the perfect way to write music on the go. It is the only notation software I have on my phone, as I can write everything except full orchestral scores on it! It is available for both Apple and Android.
Olive Tree Bible Study/YouVersion Bible - Like most everyone else in the world with a Bible app, I am a huge fan of YouVersion's Bible app. However, I like Bible Study even better, probably because I am a pastor. It is a good study tool, not just a Bible app. You can load commentaries, books, notes, and a lot of other study resources. It also syncs with the desktop version, so you have all the same stuff on both. If I have to leave in the middle of study, I can pull it up during short waits and access the same materials anywhere. If you're an in-depth studier or sermon preparer, this is invaluable. If you're just looking for personal Bible study though, stick with YouVersion's Bible for simplicity and great study plans.
Opera Mini - This is my go-to browser for my smartphone. It compresses the data, so you use much less data and it is extremely fast! I've used it on Blackberry, Android, and iPhone.
Gas Buddy - If you're like me, you go to where the cheapest gasoline dwells! This app makes finding the cheapest gas station easy, whether it's in your town or traveling around. I've used it on Blackberry, Android, and iPhone.
Songwriter - I love, love, love this app for songwriting! It blocks your thoughts into segments you can arrange and tweak later, and you can record straight into it. So, when inspiration strikes, I can write out the lyrics, add chords, and record the whole thing on the spot so I don't forget. Pretty much the perfect app for any songwriter. (Apple, Android)
BestParking - This one may not apply to most people. However, if you visit or drive in large cities very often this is a must-have. It shows on a map all the parking available near any address, or your location. It lists all the prices for said parking areas, both daily and monthly. I have saved a lot of money in large cities with this one, and never had trouble finding a safe parking place. (Apple, Android)
Logic Pro - I learned professional sound recording on Pro Tools, which has long been held as the industry standard. However, Logic Pro has made me a believer! Since switching completely, I have never had the need to go back to Pro Tools. Logic offers the very best MIDI interface and features of any DAW, and is by far the most powerful (affordable) software available for the private or small recording studio. The free version (Garage Band) comes standard on Mac computers, but is very limited in features compared to Logic Pro. (Mac Only)
Audacity - If you don't have an extra $300 for Logic Pro, you can get your feet wet in the recording world by downloading this free open-source DAW. It is really quite powerful, accepts 3rd-party plug-ins, and is by far the best free recording software available. You can grab this free program for PC or Mac.
VLC - Do you have any video files that just aren't opening on your computer? VLC is the very best video player, and will open and play virtually any video file format. Best of all? It is completely free!
MuseScore - This is an absolutely amazing, full-featured music notation software. It is extremely comparable to several of the older versions of Sibelius or Finale. The best part? It is completely free! The MuseScore community is outstanding, and I highly doubt you'll run into anything you can't do with this software. The main difference between this and the expensive full-feature softwares is the quality of music playback sounds. Everything else is there, including MIDI input. I do have and use Sibelius, but MuseScore is quickly becoming my go-to music notation software. (Mac or PC)
Adobe Photoshop Elements - If you're like me, and get sticker shock from the full-version Photoshop, you need to try Elements! Having spent hundreds of hours editing photos for a huge variety of projects, it has handled everything I need to do, and there are a number of features I haven't even touched. Unless you're going to be doing graphics for a living, I highly recommend Photoshop Elements. (Mac or PC) P.S. There is a free Linux software that works the same as the full-version of Photoshop called Gimp. It is free, for all operating systems, and top-notch.
Mixxx - If you ever find yourself to be the designated DJ for an event, download Mixxx right away! This is a very full-featured dual-turntable DJ software, and it's free! (Mac only)
Libre Office - As the name implies, this is a free office suite software. In my opinion, it is the best one out there. It comes with word processing, spreadsheets, database, and presentation software. (Mac or PC)
