My Top 7 Apps: Jide Sobo of MEC

I’m delighted to have received an in-depth Top 7 Apps submission from Jide Sobo, Head of Mobile at leading Media Agency MEC. Here’s a quick overview of MEC:

We’re a top 5 media planning and buying agency that’s genuinely excited about today’s dynamic media landscape. Today we offer over 65 diversified services beyond our core media planning and buying services: from innovative broadcast sponsorships to social media insight, mobile advertising, SEO and data and analytics.

Our clients expect great delivery, great prices and great plans, but MEC delivers so much more through a team of genuinely inquisitive well motivated people who are dedicated to finding inspiring solutions to deliver exceptional results.

Jide uses the iPhone 5S, so let’s take a look through this list of Top 7 apps…

Dark Sky: Incredibly accurate 1 hour precipitation forecast. As I cycle to work, this is invaluable for timing when I leave, and what I wear.

Score Cloud Express – creates sheet music from any audio, even humming. I’m learning the piano at the moment, and this is a great way of getting snippets of popular songs for me to practice

Hyperlapse – A new favourite! It creates incredible time lapse videos from normal footage shot on the iPhone. Great fun to use, and I’m sure some people will do really incredible things with it.

Sugarsync – A cloud based file back up system, this allows me to automatically back up all of the files on my various laptops, and then be able to access them from my phone. It’s great for those unexpected moments, when you want to show somebody a document that you had no idea that you needed.

Day One – A really simple journaling app that I use to keep a record of all of the mini restaurant reviews that I write

Touchnote – for sending real life postcards home from holidays. Sometimes it’s nice to send a proper postcard, rather than an impersonal Facebook update.

Social apps – a big cheat here, but I’ve got to mention Facebook & Twitter as I spend so much time using them

Thanks to Jide for his list, I’m a big fan of Sugarsync and you can’t help but be on Facebook and Twitter can you?
