This week, Steve Martin, who you may have heard of, shares his favorite app with us. “I’ve got thousands of them, but I use Google Play for music.

Oh Appy Day! featuring Gail Simmons

Oh Appy Day! gives you the scoop on the coolest apps from some of the coolest people anywhere. This week, our favorite foodie mama, Gail Simmons, shares her favorite. The apps I use most, truthfully, are Uber and Waze in tandem. I’m a Brooklyn mom—I just moved to Brooklyn less than a year ago—and am still adjusting to the commute. Whenever I have to get anywhere in the city, I need a pick up on demand and then I need to know if the Brooklyn Bridge is closed or not—and it often is! The second I get into the...

Oh Appy Day! featuring Chef Daniel Boulud’s two favorite apps

Our OhAppy Day! series gives you the scoop on the coolest apps from some of the coolest people anywhere. This week, Chef Daniel Boulud shares his favorites. And he had trouble narrowing them down! “I am just starting to try the Sleep Cycle App because my daughter loves it and insists I have to use it. It tracks everything about your sleep cycle and judges your REM cycle so it can wake you up slowly just at the end of your REM cycle so that you won’t be groggy and tired. I just love the idea of having more control about my...

Oh Appy Day! Featuring Andre Agassi’s favorite iPhone app

Oh Appy Day! is our ongoing feature giving you the scoop on the coolest apps from some of the coolest people anywhere. Last week, our editor had the chance to talk to Andre Agassi. My favorite app is called Over 40. It’s not only a flashlight, it’s a magnifying glass too. You can zoom in based on your level of blindness as you get older! Thank goodness my eyes are still pretty good, but I got it because when I’m with my parents or someone older, it always comes in handy. I’m often around somebody older than me at a business...

Last week, our Editor Kristen Chase had the chance to talk to actor and dad Ethan Hawke and find out his favorite app, just in time for Father’s Day.

Oh Appy Day! Featuring Samantha Barks of Les Miserables

Oh Appy Day! gives you the scoop on the coolest apps from some of the coolest people anywhere. This week, actress Samantha Barks shares her favorite–which happens to be a great one for parents.  There’s one app called Sleepcycle and it does this thing where it senses your motion and it wakes you up gently when it senses your body is in a light phase of sleep. You pick the time period, and whatever song you want [from the app] and I pick a gentle one. You put it under your pillow and it sort of picks up on...

Oh Appy Day! featuring Nigel Barker’s favorite photography app

Oh Appy Day! gives you the scoop on the coolest apps from some of the coolest people anywhere. This week we’re thrilled to welcome photographer Nigel Barker, who may have answered this question faster than anyone else! I absolutely love Camera Plus for photography. It offers the most authentic results, closer to what film-based cameras do. It has a lot of filters but the Ansel Adams filter is my favorite. I tend to take shots using Camera Plus then save and post to Instagram…but the truth is sometimes I’ve used three or four apps before I post. –Nigel Find...

Tom is a James Beard award-winning chef and is the founder of restaurants...

Oh Appy Day! featuring Angela Kinsey

Oh Appy Day! gives you the scoop on the coolest apps from some of the coolest people anywhere. This week, Angela Kinsey shares her favorite. I am not a very tech savvy gal so I don’t have a lot of apps on my phone. I would rather read a book (like a real book that you hold in your hands and turn the pages…I know I am a dinosaur!) than play with my phone. But I did put a few apps on my iPhone the last time I flew with Isabel. I was hoping to entertain her on the...
