Explore Westeros With The Best Apps, Straight From Robb Stark & Khaleesi

0 comments

As they wrestle their way through Westeros, executing difficult political power plays and trying to find their dragons, we often find ourselves wondering: What apps would they use? What would it be like to follow the Targaryens on Instagram? What's on Robb Stark's Spotify? Well, now we know. Thanks to Apple, we've got the four young members of the GoT's universe sharing the iPhone apps that make their global Westeros domination possible.

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 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!

Artemis Director's Viewfinder — This app acts like a director's viewfinder. It helps me understand what lenses we're using and see things from the other side of the camera.

VSCO CAM — This is a really simple and well designed photo app. Makes all the photos I take on my iPhone 5 look great in seconds.

Hugmail — I can turn photos on my iPhone 5 into postcards that I can send to friends and family. My mum likes getting pictures in the post from me of where I am and what I'm doing!

Spotify — I'm always looking for new music. Whenever someone recommends something to me, I can just check it out on Spotify and listen to it offline.

Snapseed — Great photo app with some really cool effects and filters. You can do a lot with this app on your iPhone 5 to get the most out of your pictures.

Hailo — Helps me get a taxi in London whenever I need one. Reliable, easy, and fast!

TuneIn Radio — I can listen to any radio stations in the world with TuneIn Radio. No matter what mood I'm in I can find music or a talk show that I want to listen to.

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!

Cut the Rope — This game sucked me in. I always loved puzzle games. Upper levels get more creative and challenging but who wouldn't want to feed the cute little monster some candy?

Video Star — This app makes great videos to my favourite songs!

iMovie — So simple and easy. I've been traveling a lot lately so it’s been great to have the capability right in your hand to shoot and edit. It provides the flexibility and convenience of creating your own films along the way.

Wanelo Shopping — Means I can put things up that I really like as soon as i find them, it was very useful for my birthday!

HeliumBooth — This app is very funny and keeps me entertained.
