Welcome Periscope. For the past 6 months there's been a new app dominating the live streaming world. Periscope is the ultimate experience allowing users to chat face to face in real time from their mobile phones. What makes this app different than something like Skype? Periscope is native to Twitter and has unlimited possibilities that allow anyone to jump in on the action and interact with the stream using a chat function. While the video is only available for replay for 24 hours, allowing your attendees access to your live event in real time is worth the time limit. Periscope is available for both ISO and Android operating systems!

Post It Plus
Do you have hundreds of post-it notes just floating around the office? If you're anything like me you can have 20-30 post it notes for one project, posted in the most odd places (I found one in my cup holder). With the new Post- It Plus app you can say goodbye to post-it takeover and hello to a system that allows you to keep all notes in one place on your phone. The Post-it Plus app is an application for IOS devices that enables you to take your square Post-it notes from the analog world to the digital world in one click of a button. You can even capture multiple notes and create work boards around your project. Sound Interesting? The Post-it Plus app is only available on IOS devices for now but be patient Android users, they're working on a version for you too!

I met this cool little app on a recent trip zip-lining in the beautiful Hill Country. AutoStitch Panorama is your perfect pal when trying to get that 180 view to post a selfie or share with family and friends. The app takes consecutive images with little effort or contortions and stitches them together for a perfect photo. The best part of the app is it doesn't take a steady hand. If one image is off center, no problem, the app seamlessly lines up the image and voila; a perfect picture. I've started using the app at work to take pictures of meeting space, foyer layouts, and room setups to share with my clients and team. A picture truly is worth a 1000 words!
AutoStitch basic is free and upgrades are just $1.99. Available for iPhone or Android user.
I've recently been introduced to a great little app called Pocket Planner that allows the most novice of planners a tool to create a perfect event down to the smallest of details. The app is completely Free, uses Linked in and Facebook to login and is easily accessed via android and I phone. Pocket Planner uses attendee count and ratios to plan details such as amount of hors d'oeuvres to order per hour, number of bartenders to staff for a full bar or wine & beer only, and even number of staff needed at check-in. I recently found this app particularly useful in planning my Grandparent's 60th Wedding anniversary. It allowed me to easily determine what I needed to request from the restaurant hosting the event to plan a seamless experience to remember! The only downfall is the app is still working out some kinks so the Glossary and CIC Manual are not easily accessed, but all in all, it's a quick reference for all your planning needs. It currently works on Android phone and iPhones but not on iPads.
As always MPI is not responsible if the app blows up your phone...
No PhotoShop? No problem.
is an online (no software to download or install) image editor that allows you to resize and crop, add filters and effects, and create your own collages, Facebook covers, or business cards from scratch. Hundreds of fonts, filters, graphics, frames, and touch-up tools are available for free or upgrade to a paid Royale plan for many, many more options. Nearly every image and banner on mpithcc.org and the Under the Oaks e-newsletter has been created or edited in PicMonkey. How's that for a first hand endorsement?
