Covid-19 Apps

Here I sit in our condo, looking for things to do. I’ve already finished all of my crosswords, read the newspapers, etc. So I thought I would blog post on new apps are available that pertain to the Corona Virus pandemic. All of these apps are free. I have included the link to the Apple App Store as well as the web site where applicable.

Apple Covid-19

This app displays all of the current info about the pandemic from trusted sources like the CDC. It includes information about symptoms and what to do if you think you have been infected. It’s free.

Watchworthy

This is an app to help you figure out what to watch on your video streaming services. if you’re anything like me, you’ve spent a lot of time scrolling through page after page of movies and TV shows looking for something to watch.

When you first start the app it asks you to enter all of the streaming services that you have subscription services (eg. NetFlix, Amazon, etc.). Then you can enter a genre that you might be interested in watching. It’s free.

Here’s the link to the Watchworthy Web site.

Zoom Video Conferencing

Zoom is an app for doing video conferencing. It has been around for a while, but has come into its heyday now that the pandemic has hit us. We have used it to connect to our church members to do Bible study. We have used it to connect with OES members back east.

There is a free version and paid version. The free version limits you to 40 minutes and 3 participants. The paid version removes those limitations. Only the meeting leader needs to get the paid version.

All you need to do is click on “create a meeting” and then choose participants. The meeting can be scheduled for later. All you need to do is click on the meeting ID. The app also works on a Windows web browser.

Click here for the Zoom website.
