This home screen post features my friend and podcasting colleague, Victor Cajiao. Victor (twitter) produces the Typical Mac User and Typical Shutter Bug podcasts. In addition to being a huge Apple geek, Victor is a great human. So Victor, what is on your home screen?
What are your most interesting home screen apps?
To me I live and use the Flickr app all the time. I check out other peoples pictures, I look to see if people comment on my pictures and I discover new photographers. I look at this app at least twice per day.
What is your favorite app?
News Rack: I was a Net Newswire user but after finding NewsRack (because of the iPad), I really love the implementation of this app. It’s clean, does what it needs to and gets out of the way. I have about 55 feeds that I read religiously and this application organizes all of those well. It also provides syncing with my feeds on Google. What can I say it just works and after all that is how I measure all good things these days.
Which app is your guilty pleasure?
Twitter for sure on my home screen. A few screens over I have Plants Vs Zombies and I play that while I’m in line or just wasting time.
How many screens have you filled?
I have eight screens worth of apps. I use about two screens worth. Also my iPhone usage has gone down by 80% or more after I got the iPad.
What is the app you are still missing?
Screen recording for iPhone. Would love to do some back screencasts of my iPhone apps. Specifically my photo apps which I use a lot and would love to show my Typical Shutterbug Audience how I exploit these when using the iPhone’s camera.
How many times a day do you use your device?
Forty eight? Lets just say , I use my phone a lot.
What is your favorite feature?
I love the camera. Love to shoot random shots and then use applications like Photogene, AutoStich and Best Camera to manipulate them and then use Twitter to show them off.
If you were Steve Jobs, what would you add?
I’d make sure that the use experience of the devices no matter what carrier was the same and more “Apple like”
Anything else you’d like to share?
Bazinga (you get it, if you get it)
Thanks Victor. What a boring interview … Bazinga!
