Smart Phones and Your Favourite Stars
Here at Popledge Towers we couldn’t be without our smart phones, to us they mean connectivity, staying up to date with current events in the world and more importantly getting to know you, our readers, and what you want from the site.
Nowadays people purchase and use smart phones for all sorts of reasons, this is due to smart phones having virtually limitless capabilities. For example any smart phone purchased from O2 would theoretically be able to help you complete work on the go, stay in contact with your friends, keep abreast of any news or follow your favourite pop star on twitter.
Whatever you want to do with your smart phone and whatever your requirements, be it running your One Direction Tumblr Blog, sharing photos on Instagram or completing your latest work/school assignment your phone will be able to fulfil your needs and desires.
For example, if you are someone who enjoys keeping up-to-date on your favourite celebrities and music artists, there are a number of different smart phone apps and features that can help you do just that. Consider the following, for example:
- Twitter – Twitter has made celebrities more accessible to fans than arguably any other technology to date, it is extremely simple to use Twitter via an app on a smart phone. This way, you can follow your favourite artists and have constant updates as to what they’re saying and doing. In fact, you can even tweet at them and see if you get a response! Twitter is also a great way to connect to other fans who share the same interests as you, if there is a new photo out of your favourite music star then it is likely you will see it first on Twitter.
- Facebook – Needless to say, Facebook provides a number of the same benefits for fans that Twitter does, and can also be accessed on your smart phone via a simple app. Additionally, many popular artists and celebrities now have Facebook pages that update with news, tour dates, and even new music. So keeping a close eye on your favourite artists’ Facebook pages can be a great idea for fans. Facebook is also great for sharing photos and news with your family and friends, its privacy settings you can determine who gets to see that photo of your cat doing a handstand and who misses out!
- Instagram – Thanks to this easy to use photo app, hundreds of popular artists and celebrities are snapping and sharing photographs frequently. Recent additions to the app include Rihanna and also Harry Styles from One Direction – again with a smart phone updates happen in almost ‘real-time’ and the photos capture many candid moments behind the scenes. Instagram is also great for fashion inspiration with many celebrities including tags stating where their clothing is from. It also allows anyone to be a photographer with a number of pre-set effects loaded to turn your photos into works of art.
- Web Browsing – In addition to specific features and apps, the basic web browsing capabilities of smart phones are perhaps your best options for keeping track of celebrity news and developments. With a new smart phone, all you need to do is press a few buttons and you’ll be on your favourite band’s homepage, or a popular celebrity news website. Smart phones also offer you the ability to watch videos online and set your favourite websites as bookmarks for ease of access. Basically you have access to a mini-computer in your pocket!
