This week, Apple held its yearly World Wide Developer Conference. It’s an event where Apple shows off what its next operating systems and changes are going to be so developers can start work updating their software so it is ready and can take advantage of the new features. This year there were a few themes and new technologies that might be interesting to those of us at Church Tech (even if you aren’t an Apple fan).
If there’s one app I have that has made more people think about getting an iPad than any other, it’s Onsong. Although there are many other apps for musicians, this one leads to my bandmates eying it with envy. It does something very simple but in such a well thought out that it blows the competition away. For various reasons, it’s not coming out on Android anytime soon. So, what is Onsong and why should you think about getting it?
Previously, we had introduced the 2018 ChurchMag Reader Survey, talking about how we want to continue to improve ChurchMag, which would require your help. In doing so, we want to also share some details with you guys, the readers. I didn’t explain why though. The reason for sharing this data, at least a macro view of the data, is in order to improve the community with you guys. One of the best ways of developing community, as any youth pastor or college pep rally organizer knows, is to find commonality between all who are present. We want you guys to see some of the other shared or opposing interests that our readers hold.
Today’s post focuses on the tech and software side of things. Specifically, which desktop operating system are you rocking and what is the mobile device you are using?
I haven’t had a games console or played too many computer games in a long time. My last console was an XBox 360 at University and in the last five years, I think I’ve bought 5 games (only two weren’t iOS games). Well, that all ended a couple of weeks back when I grabbed the Nintendo Switch.
When I was a teenager I used to change my desktop wallpaper every couple of days or so, (and fill up a ridiculous amount of hard drive space as a result), but now I tend to stick to one design for about 6 months or so, till I get a prompt to change thanks to some seasonal event.
Well, this little web app made me break that newer trend. It’s a way to quickly create stylish a map wallpaper.
People have many strong thoughts and emotions when it comes to their phones. Simply ask, in an online tech forum, if Android or Apple is better and you will see the grossest pieces of what humanity has to offer over something that in many ways is trivial. Both get the job done, it’s just is one 95% efficiency or the other one 1-3% more efficient. Others have to have phone notifications and ringers off because the temptation to look, even in times where it is unacceptable to check, is too much.
