SoLAR: Your Pocket Weather Guide

23 Apr

I know there are quite a few weather and temperature apps out there but I seem to always reach for Solar.

I like its simplicity and the sleekness of its UI (user interface). The straightforwardness of its look got me: date, time, weather and temperature on top, city and country at the bottom. Basically all the things you need to have in a weather app.

It’s easy to enter the place you’d like to check the temp of. Type it in and have it available readily in your “collection”. A simple swipe sideways lets you access the city that you saved or toggle between those you previously searched for.

Instagram: Best Photo-Sharing Mobile App

2 Apr

#Instagram, oh my #lovestagram! Yep, I’m Marie and I’m an Instagrammer. Proud of it!

Instagram is on top of my most loved social networking apps list. And why not? The concept is so simple yet so brilliant. You just take out your iPhone or iPad, snap a pic, adjust and apply a filter (or not), write a caption, #hashtag and share.

The brilliant concept, which is shoot-and-share in real-time, is so successful that even Facebook found it hard to resist, hence, the US$1B price tag.

I love this app! @marieinheels
