I am an advocate for not letting things get in the way of your adventures. This applies also to the story-telling aspect of
expeditions and journeys.
I have written before about some of the simple, free online tools available for generating and documenting your content. (here is a blog post on the subject, though it is in need of updating to include sites such as ipadio.)
I am new to the world of iPhones but have decided to use my phone to document my next expedition to the Empty Quarter desert.
I’m going to experiment with it to see what sort of material I can come up with and, ultimately, to explore whether this tool for a few hundred quid can be considered a viable alternative to a camera, a video camera, a laptop etc.
I’ll share my results in the New Year when I get home.
But before then I need your help.
If you are an iPhone user, please could you recommend for me some apps which will be helpful or interesting to use on my journey? I’m thinking mostly about apps for documenting the story – writing, photos, video, story-telling. But I’m open to all suggestions. I’ll be online at the start and end of the journey, but most of it will take place far from WiFi or phone signal.
Please leave your suggestions in the comments below.
The list of apps that I already know I will use is currently very short:
