Thanks for all the suggestions. Lots of interesting stuff to explore once I figure out how to set up my new smart phone, which I fear might be smarter than I am. 😬

I just point my phone to a page or a sign. Google Translate does the rest. Worked in Japan. Haven't been to other countries lately where I don't understand the script or language.

Speaking is on a different level though. 😕

Same applies to Google maps as well where you can download any mapped area.


OK. Thanks guys. Clearly I have some stuff to catch up on if I ever get out of this place again. I’ve only been to Spain in recent years and I can understand enough Spanish to get by. I spent some time in Holland back in the 70s and started to learn a bit of Dutch but I could never practise it as everyone spoke English back whenever I tried.

Just thought of another app that I use, a photo resizer. The phone produces big photo files and there doesn't appear to be any mechanism built in for downsizing to a reasonable size for web use, or for mailing to friends etc. I use a freeware app that is contaminated by adverts, but I can put up with that as it is rarely used. Sorry can't remember the name.

Maria J is also on Instagram. She is also around Vancouver and has been posting some nice stuff.

 

Also Gina Easley in Oregon. 

 

 

Thank you Michael!  I really enjoy following a variety of inspiring photographers and artists on Instagram.

 

Other photography related apps I have and use are Snapseed, Photoshop Express, and Mextures.  Also Stockimo.

 

I find the Sky Guide app is useful for astrophotography, and just fun for stargazing.

I do like Instagram, thanks for the mention Michael.  Instagram is generally apolitical and mostly about sharing photos.  There are some good apps for identifying plants and animals.  One app I found recently, called “Lumos”, it is a sun and moon predictor...I needed something like this recently when scouting a shoot location and I needed to know where the sun would be at a later time of day.  May not be that useful to others.

 

Is it similar to Sun & Moon Tracker, which is available for android?

I downloaded an app called Architecture Dictionary from Google Play -- free but lots of annoying ads -- since I enjoy photographing buildings and architectural details. Quite impressed with it so far. No doubt there are other good architecture apps out there.

If you are using Sony gear there are apps available which are free, and useful.
Use your phone as a remote trigger amongst others.
