Welcome to the second installment of Hello, Apps!


This post contains affiliate links.

Today’s title is Speed & Beauty, and we’ve chosen a collection of Apps that represent those ideas perfectly.

We’ll still be following the format from Gary Vaynerchuck and we’ll be featuring 3 categories per post. Check the first installment of Hello, Apps! for more information.

As always, the apps range in price, yet we stand behind your satisfaction of every one of them 100%.

1. Escapism & Entertainment

Recommended by Ethan

When I first got an iPad, I never thought that a AAA game experience (like on Xbox or Playstation) could be had on such a small touchscreen device. I thought iOS was relegated to touch-based games like Angry Birds and Cut the Rope.

Bastion was one of the first few games to shatter that mindset. Bastion is far and away an unreal experience from the very beginning. SuperGiantGames, the developers behind Bastion, leave no detail untouched in this masterpiece experience. It brings a wonderfully realized and polished world with an engaging story and a spectacular soundtrack.

2. Information & Utility

Recommended by Ethan & Kristin

We both love tracking our workout activities, and Runkeeper offers us the versatility to track both Ethan’s extremely active running as well as Kristin’s changing needs.

Runkeeper allows you to track running, walking, biking, rowing and other activities, and you can even enter workouts manually. It also has a great social aspect that helps keep us motivated. They even offer coaching and extended analysis for a monthly or yearly fee. Come find Ethan here and Kristin here. Let’s be friends!

3. Social (People)

Recommended by Kristin

Instagram has turned novice and pro photography into one of the largest online communities. You’ll see everything from beautiful landscapes to pictures of someone’s breakfast cereal, and you can explore other photos using hashtags. It’s a beautiful world out there. Be sure to check out Hello, Flecks!, Ethan, and Kristin on Instagram. Even Chase has one :)
