Editorial #127: What Should I Get for the Holidays?

Thanksgiving is over…and that means we all are gearing up for the holiday season and with that means gifts for us all…

I was thinking of what we all would like to make video communication a great experience….

1) get an Apple iPhone, iPod Touch or an iPad

If you already have a smartphone with a locked in contract, an iPod Touch or an iPad does not require a contract and you can do many wonderful things with those devices without the need to have a phone connection.  A wifi connection works with those devices.

2) Get a great stand for your iPad

The Mophie Powerstand is great–and expensive at $149.  They’re hard to find and get.  Only the Apple Store carries it (link).  ZVRS has used this at all Deaf Nation shows and they are sturdy!

3) Wait until the Z5 from ZVRS comes out.  It’s a great piece of software and in final stages of beta testing.

4) Look at the Apple App store for great apps.   The top 6 apps Dr. Z likes are:

– Clear (an easy to do list) $2.99

– Evernote – to keep all your info in one place (free)

– Camera + – a great camera app (on sale now for 99 cents)

– Filmic Pro – a great video app ($3.99)

– Kayak Pro – a great travel app (99 cents)

– Waze – the best GPS app (free)

Have fun shopping!
