Episode Info: Your App Lady Show Notes Series 1 Episode 2 Welcome to Episode Number 1 a part of series number 2, all about apps that I use everyday. Today on the podcast, I will talk about one of my favorite apps.  But first, here is a little tech news for you. Tech News:  Apple Heart Study from the verge.com. This study is with the Apple Watch. You have to have the Apple Watch that was released second. The first Apple Watch won’t work with the study. I may need to get a new Watch!!! “Late last month, Apple launched a new study in partnership with Stanford University, one of many studies the company has embarked on since the device’s 2015 launch, that will track Apple Watch users’ heart rhythms for irregularity. This type of data collection can be done with the current model’s heart rate monitor, but more advanced forms of tracking and testing, like EKGs, would require all new hardware and software. On the same day, the Federal Drug Administration cleared the Apple Watch’s first medical device accessory, an EKG reader built into a watch strap from medical device company AliveCor. Down the line, it seems like Apple wants as much of this technology built into the watch as possible, contingent only on what is actually feasible given current hardware and software constraints.” Studies are also being done for detecting seizures, mental health issues etc. Read more at https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/21/16806656/apple-watch-ekg-heart-monitor-future-models-development App: Voxer by Voxer Pro LLC The Voxer app is like a walkie talkie. You must have WiFi or cellular but otherwise there is a free version. Voxer is great for conversation without the need for the person to be there at the moment  It’s like a monologue. You can send the voice message and then later the other person can respond back to you. You can also send text, photo and video over Voxer. The Voxer messages are encrypted end to end Voxer is available for iPhone, Android and web. I use the free version. There is a paid version that is $3.99 and includes more features like transcription and the ability to recall a message. Voxer has been key to my productivity and support in my business. My admin and I use Voxer for quick and easy communication. Because this is our primary method of communication, we are able to go back and read or listen to messages as needed. I also use Voxer to communicate with my business coach, mentors and business friends. I am able to send them questions, messages and wins and they can respond when it is convenient. This keeps the communication functional without interrupting them when they are working. Find out more about Voxer at https://www.voxer.com.
