Apps & Services
“There is an App for that!” is almost an epidemic.
But here are some services and apps I use and recommend regularly.
All the things on this list are services I use or have used.
For a creative person, I guess this is a must have. Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and Audition are the programs I use most out of this suite!
I use AirBnB to find stays all around the world. Houses for retreats, apartments for short or long term stays, or sometimes just a room. There is everything and it's awesome.
Are you using music in your videos? Have you ever had a video be claimed by the artist? Not with this service. ArtList provides a huge library of music which you can use for your own videos as well as videos that you produce for clients!
I don't really use Social Media on my phone any more. Since then I do most of my posting through Buffer, especially on Instagram and Twitter.
My website and all my web services are run on one DigitalOcean Server and it works like a charm. It's more work than just having a webhost for a website, but it's also more flexibility.
Mobile video editing on steroids. It's incredibly powerful and you can do a lot on the go. I still prefer to work on my MacBook and feel more productive there but if I must do it mobile, this is the tool for bigger videos.
My main bank at the moment. Easy to use, great notifications, and fast management.
I like checking cities that I am going to on NomadList to get an idea about what the city will be like, how much it will cost, and so on. It's also a great platform to remember where I have been in the past and where I am going next.
One of those new banks that's really powerful to use while traveling. Especially because you are able to hold many different currencies.
The Netflix of Courses. You pay one price and there is so much you can learn on this platform it is unbelievable. I publish my classes here!
If you just want to spice up your InstaStory, Spark is the App for you! It's easy to use and very powerful for all the basics of a nice vertical video.
When I get paid internationally, TransferWise is the best place to send big money through. It's pricing on international cross currency transfers is great.
The annoyance of running a business… you have to do invoices and accounting. Wave makes my life a little easier in this regard.
Zencastr is the tool of choice at the moment for remote interviews. Comparing Zencastr with Skype is not even fair. With Zencastr, the recording is done locally on both (or more computers). The guest and you will have a file which is uploaded to Zencastr and then you have the full audio quality you're used to when doing an inperson interview. Ofcourse, only if your guest has a good mic as well.
