Must-Have Apps for #FirstDayofFall and Beyond
According to Weather.com, we officially entered the fall season last night at 10:29 p.m. ET after direct sunlight passed over the earth’s equator from the Northern to the Southern Hemisphere. To welcome this #FirstDayofFall, we’ve made a list of apps and tips to help guide you through the autumn season.
Fall Photography Apps
With the leaves turning shades of bright yellow, brilliant orange and fiery red, the fall is a great time to test your skills as a smartphone photographer – and why not learn from the experts? According to National Geographic, TiltShift Generator is great for capturing shots of fall foliage – as it creates a “dreamy effect” with the ability “of controlling blur, depth and color.” The app is available for free download on iTunes and Google Play.
‘Tis the season of jumping in massive piles of leaves and rooting for your favorite sports team as they carry the ball down the field. Such action shots would typically require professional equipment, but with iMotion, you can take a sequence of photos in stop motion to make objects look like they are moving on their own. This app is available for free download on iTunes.
Tailgate or Party Planning Apps
It doesn’t matter if you’re rooting for high school, college or professional sports teams – the tailgate needs to be epic. To get started on the right foot, download the OurTailgate. This app will help you with organizing a list of who’s coming, who’s bringing what, where you will be and more. Check out the website for details on how to sign up for a free basic plan.
Whether you’re traveling internationally or attending your college homecoming game, Stadium Finder is another great app that can help you plan a visit to almost any sports stadium in the world. Find nearby restaurants, get directions or even check out the view from your seats. Stadium Finder is available for free download on Google Play.
Fall Organization Apps
Looking to get life in order before the holidays? Evernote is a great app that “allows you to create a web database of notes comprised of text, photos, audio, blurbs, web clippings, checklists and tasks to be done.” Check out the website where you can sign up for the free basic plan.
Another easy to use app, AnyDo, syncs with your computer and allows you to dictate or type a to-do list of items organized by what you need to do “today”, “tomorrow”, “later” or “someday.” AnyDo is available for free download on iTunes or Google Play.
