My Top 7 Apps: Colin Grant of Gamar

We are back with another Top 7 Apps submission and this time it is from Colin Grant, Head of Marketing at Gamar. Let’s learn a bit more about Gamar;

Have you been to a museum and not remembered fun and interesting elements? Have you taken your children to a museum and felt they might not have learnt and retained information? Gamar turns iconic attractions into interactive adventure playgrounds through incredible augmented reality games – helping people get the most from their visit.

Colin uses the iPhone and let’s get cracking with his list…

– – – – –

Twitter: Because 24-hours a day it’s the best app for delivering up-to-the second insight, information, banter and banality. And the great thing is the unpredictable ratios with which I get served that mixture.

IMDb: Because it’s the most comprehensive app for films and trivia (it’s the only place I could have found out that the script to Back to the Future was rejected 40 times).

BBC News: Because its impartiality and excellent reporting leaves other news apps trailing. Yes, its content is somewhat restricted but it delivers exceptional quality on every visit.

Spotify: Because it’s a well-designed, intuitive app that puts millions of songs at my fingertips – no single app has the variety to combat my train journey boredom, hype up gym visits and entertain my children.

I’m a big fan of Right Move right now because I’m in the middle of a home redevelopment/move quandary. Right Move constantly helps me remain aware of the options and what’s available.

And given I’m Head of Marketing for Gamar, I have to include Gamar because I want my children to have an enjoyable learning experience at museums. What better way to achieve this than with the #1 app for playing augmented reality games – my children use the app to gain enjoyable, educational experience at iconic attractions.

Sky Sports News: As a Liverpool fan, football has dealt me some dramatic highs and lows, but there’s no way I could miss out on a regular fix of sports news. The writers on the Sky Sports News app have the ability to make any sport that’s shown on Sky appear to be utterly fascinating.

Thanks to Colin for his list of apps. I’m a big fan of Spotify and of course everyone tweets don’t they? IMDb is a must for me when I fail at remembering what ‘that bloke off the telly was in before this’ – we all need the extra help!
