Upgrading my phone

6 posts in this topic

After watching the Art of the Apps 2 with Kelly Sill, I found that most of the good apps only work with iphones. I would love to use the scrapbooking apps that Kelly taught. I also want a better camera on my phone. Mine is almost useless. I have an Android and not a very good one. It was a cheap one that uses Nokia cards and not a service like AT&T. So I am wondering what service provider in the best and least expensive. Any thoughts? Also, if you have an iphone, do you love it?

I've had the urge to switch to Iphone from android- but I would lose all the apps I've paid for! I've just recently dove into the app scrapping thing & there are some really good work-arounds for android. I have done some research & so far I've been happy with Pixellab & Phonto as well as Piclab studio (and of course the project life app!) I need to figure out how I will store my kits tho- as I have them all on my ehd- which my phone does not have access to remotely. :( When I was on a trip last week- I figured out ahead of time what kits/cards to use & put them in my dropbox. I also don't keep all my photos on my phone- but they can be easily accessed with Google Photos. Hope that helps- don't feel like you HAVE to switch to Iphone- but if you're upgrading already... ;);)

I don't like iphones so I have an Android Samsung S7.  My parents just purchased the S8 so my phone is already outdated lol.  BUT I love my S7.  Please look at videos on YT about the camera capabilities on the S7 and S8 they have been highly compared to many quality hand held cameras.  I have a Cannon Rebel and I love it but I mostly use my cell phone for pictures due to the convenience of my phone: ease of uploading photos to social media, filter apps, video making apps, and sharing photos through email/groupme/text.  I also love that many Android camera apps are FREE!  I don't have my phone with me right now but if you would like to know what apps I use let me know and I will list them in a reply.

Just wondering why you don't like iphones. I don't have loyalty to either and I'm just wondering which way to go. I would be interested in what apps you have found that you really like.

I have an iPhone.  I took the first Art of the Apps class, and was completely surprised at how much I can do with my phone.  It inspired me to scrapbook the story of my library.  I'm a high school library media specialist, and this year I have scrapped a page with my phone over what happened in the library for nearly every week.  I post these to social media for students and parents.  I don't have much of a following for them, but I love knowing that I'll have a great record of the year beyond the usual statistics.  It also gives me a great excuse to scrapbook at work.  ;-)  LetterGlow is AMAZING, and I have started dabbling a little in design because let's face it, NO ONE designs white, black, gray, and red elks.  https://www.facebook.com/ElkLibrary/
