Opening Up New Worlds Through Apps

I had an idea for a music app, but I never thought that it would go anywhere. It was original music, so it was not because of copyright laws or anything like that. I just did not know how I would be able to get something like that started on my own. I thought that it would cost too much to go to a company that specializes in creating apps. At the urging of a good friend, I finally did a search for app development in Singapore. I mainly did it just so I could tell him that I was right all along.

Instead, I ended up thanking him, because that changed my life. I went to the website for an app developer, and it did not take long before I realized that this actually was something that I would be able to get made. I had the idea for it, and they had the talent and skills to put it together in a handy little app that is now available all around the world. I am not making much money off it at all, but that was not why I wanted to do this in the first place.

I wanted to open up a new world for others who love music the same way I do. With this app, music lovers are able to create their own music and songs, and then they can share them with others who also have the app. It really is very simple, and I have received so many ideas and suggestions for an upgraded version. I am currently working with the app developer to make this a reality. I am also working on a second app idea that is almost ready to be put in the designer’s hands. It is exciting to play a role like this in opening up a new world for so many others.

My Boss Recommended His HVAC People

My air conditioner stopped working properly last week. I already knew a few things to check, which I did. I looked at the filter, but it was still fairly clean since I had just changed it a few weeks prior to it conking out on me. I also looked at the condenser outside to make sure nothing had happened there, that I could see anyway. There were no weeds or rocks real close, and I couldn’t see any damage. I knew that I needed a professional who does HVAC in NYC since I didn’t know what else to look for.

I had never had to hire someone to help me with my air conditioner before, and I honestly didn’t know who to turn to. Rather than go online and pick a company that I knew nothing about, I called my boss at work. I knew that if he didn’t know a company, he would be able to find out the best one in the area faster than I could. It turns out that he not only could recommend the right company, but he had their contact info for me too.

I contacted them and told them why I was calling. They were so nice right from the start. I know that sounds logical since they are in the public sector, but you’d be surprised how many workers are not nice to the people they talk with on the phone. Anyway, they were able to send someone out. It ended up being a belt that needed replaced, which was something I would have never figured out on my own. It took the tech just a few minutes of poking around, and he even had the right belt on him. I was very impressed with this company all the way around, and I am glad my boss recommended them to me.
