Not just a phone
Jackie: I'm talking to Karin. Hi, Karin.
Jackie: And I'm talking to Karin about her mobile phone. Ifs not just a mobile phone, is it?
Karin: No, for me it is my... an extra pair of hands and a lifesaver in many situations.
Jackie: Now am I right in saying you've just got loads of apps on there?
Karin: Yes, I'm always adding new extra apps and um... I've got quite a favourite that I've just loaded about a month ago.
Jackie: How... okay, how many do you have then?
Karin: I think probably about twenty, which for a lot of people isn't that many but for my age group, I'm in my fifties, that's quite a lot compared to my friends.
Jackie: So you have a new favourite.
Karin: I do.
Jackie: What's that called?
Karin: *Glimpse [*This is only for an 'Phone]Jackie: Okay, so what does that do?
Karin: Well, when you go on holiday it's very easy to take loads of photos and when you return from holiday everyone wants to see where you've been and what happened and it can take a long time to go through all the photos. With the Glimpse app you just press little clips of video every day, two or three times, and then the app connects them all together...
Jackie: It makes a film?
Karin: It makes a mini film never more than about two or three minutes in total of all your little clips and it gives a very good overview and flavour of the holiday without boring your friends.
Jackie: Nothing worse than watching some boring video that someone's made.
Jackie: That sounds great.
Karin: Yes, I like it a lot.
Jackie: Okay. What's another favourite?
Karin: Um... well, I try and keep fit and I've got an app called MapMyRun which allows me to see in exact detail how far I've run and the split times but also...
Jackie: Okay, what do you mean by the split times?
Karin: So whether my first kilometre of running was slower than my last one so it breaks it up; my first kilometre might have been sort of five and a half minutes and my last kilometre maybe up a hill was seven minutes, something like that. [Jackie: Right] And... but the fun thing is, my daughter is also on the same app and so we can link together and I can see she's done a run in Manchester when Cm running in London and I can see that maybe I've beaten her on my run that day although, if I'm honest, usually she beats me.
Jackie: She's a bit younger, isn't she?
Karin: She is a lot younger.
Jackie: Do you have... games are very popular, aren't they for... for people, do you have any games at all?
Karin: I do have games but I only do word games [Jackie: Okay] and only two: Scrabble which is great because you can play internationally with people all around the world and another one which is called Word Streak which most people would be more familiar with the game Boggle.
Jackie: Oh, right, okay.
Karin: Which is like, its a bit like Word Search that sometimes people do in puzzle magazines.
Jackie: Right, okay, that sounds quite fun. So it's really become a part of your life.
Karin: Yes, I'm on my phone, since I've had apps and the Smartphone, I'm on my phone probably twice as much as I used to be before.
Jackie: Karin, thank you very much.
Karin: I've enjoyed it.
