I get this question a lot, what is my favourite iPhone app? I have to say it’s flightradar. I like this because I love looking up at the aircraft flying above me and my iPhone will tell me what aircraft that is, the airline, origin and destination along with heights, speed and route. The app also tells me what other aircraft are in the sky and as the above image shows I can point my iPhone at any aircraft and it will provide me with all the relevant details about the plane flying overhead. You can download and get details on the app.
Talking to one of my friends today and the number one present he has on his wishlist is for a Galaxy Note 10 2014. He’s not alone another of my friends also wants the new Galaxy Note tablet however iPad mini also seems to be desired too. What struck me was that we now seem to be entering a phase were Apple products are not as exclusive as they used to be, Samsung I believe have made a significant dent in the tablet wars and to be fair the Galaxy Note does seem to be a sturdy and decent enough competitor to the iPad, let’s face it it can achieve quite a lot and a stylus makes it an attractive option for those, like me, who like to ink note.
Mike Rohde has a new book coming soon. “THE BIRTHDAY PARTY is over for The Sketchnote Handbook but I have great news! I have a new contract with Peachpit to create a second book on sketchnoting called The Sketchnote Workbook! One of the things I wished I could do in the Handbook was explore a wider variety of uses for sketchnotes. However, because we wanted to focus in detail on the idea of sketchnotes, it made sense to aim my usage of sketchnotes at the most immediately useful application—meeting notes and conferences.”
