Vi er nogle stykker som ikke kan få nok af HBO hitserien Game of Thrones. Personligt drømmer jeg slotte, rustninger, drama, sex og intriger med mine favorit helte og skurke.
Men nu kan vi GOT fans også blive klogere på de smartphones og apps stjernerne fra serien er mest begejstrede for. Apps er blevet vores tids “vis mig dit køleskab/håndtaske/playliste og jeg skal fortælle dig hvem du er” og det viser sig endda at 5 ud af 6 Game of Thrones stjerner bruger iPhone fremfor Android. Ingen er umiddelbart Windows fans.
Jeg har gennem en venlig PR repræsentant fået fat i en hotliste over yndlingsapps hos nogle af GOT seriens topskuespillere. Listen er på engelsk, og det får den lov at blive ved med at være. Så du får det med stjernens egne ord.
Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock- This has been the most life changing app I’ve downloaded since I got my first iPhone. Instead of waking you up at an exact time, the phone uses it’s own built in accelerometer to monitor your movement and determine when you’re in the optimal sleep cycle to be woken up. I use it every day and I always wake up feeling alert and ready to go. If I can help it, I’ll never wake up to a blaring regular alarm again.
RunKeeper – This is by far, the best running app that I’ve tried. This app is so easy to use and breaks down every aspect of your workout for you, tracks of your routes and even gives you helpful tips to stay motivated-it’s like having your very own personal trainer!
TuneIn Radio – I love this app, especially when I’m shooting Game of Thrones, and want to stay connected with music no matter where I may be. Do you like listening to radio from around the world, wherever you are? Well, this is the app I use.
Viber – I have lots of friends scattered all over the world, and this app helps me stay connected with them all of the time. You can stay in touch with your friends and family anywhere in the world, anytime, and it’s free!
Spotify – I’m a total music gal, so this app was made for me. It’s got every song you could ever want, and lets you make the most unbelievable playlists – I have so many of them now, for all kinds of artists and moods.
Hailo – I use this app all the time when I need to zip around New York. You can order, track and pay for a private taxi online, and are guaranteed to have the most amazing driver who will really make sure you are taken care of. After a night out on the town with your girlfriends, you can’t beat being safely dropped off at your front door!
Tango – I’m often filming huge distances away from my family and friends. I love this app because you can call, text and video call for free.
Shazam – I cannot get enough of the Shazam app. I am constantly using it because it is one of the most frustrating things when you hear a song and can’t remember who sings it or when you hear a song you like and can’t remember the lyrics when you get round to finding it on iTunes. It’s a must-have.
Duolingo – I don’t do languages anymore at school so it comes in handy when I’m filming something in a foreign country because it teaches me the basic lingo so that I can get around in that country! Useful!
Video Star – Not only is it a fun way to make music videos with your friends and just mess around, but you also get a cool end product to show!
The Official DSA Theory Test for Car Drivers – My personal favorite, just because it’s going to help me pass my driving exam. Very useful if you’re better with technology and respond to it better than books.
4 Pics 1 Word – So so so much fun. It also keeps your brain active at the same time. It’s one of those addictive games that you just can’t put down.
Instagram – Because I’m away so much I’m always wondering what my friends are up to and with this app you can check out what everyone is doing from your best friends to your favorite celebrities. An addictive social network.
Keek – A fun way to follow celebrities. It’s like twitter but they post short videos to let you know what they’re doing. Addictive!
