Got a case of the Mondays? Give the app "My Idol" a whirl to kick start your day.

Uncategorized

Hey, it's Monday again! Man, doesn't it seem like Monday always sneaks up on you when you're not looking and smacks you in the back of the head? HA! I think I may have mentioned that I am not a morning person. I think I must be allergic to them. Like Garfield says, "I don't do mornings". And Monday, mornings? Well as you can imagine those are not pretty either.

So, if mornings and Mondays are sluggish for you too, perhaps you can use something fun to start your day. I have not plugged an app in awhile, so I think this Monday morning calls for one. And, not just any app, but a silly, time waster app for this fine Monday morning.  This morning, let's talk about "My Idol".  This Chinese app is all the rage on social media and man oh man are the teenagers gaga over it!

I first heard about this late last week from my oldest. She was laughing hysterically in her room while texting her friends. When I went in her room she could barely talk without laughing showing me these crazy videos she and her giggling friends had made on an app called "My Idol". She said they had spent hours figuring it out because currently, it is available only in Chinese. But, alas, no worries these tech savvy girls figured it out and soon had the whole high school creating these silly video creatures.

Looking for some fun and distraction this Monday morning, don't fret, this isn't just for teenage girls! Even the king of the nerds around here, Dave created one. And I do believe the teenage girls we know all thought it was the best thing they had ever seen! And, if you don't feel like learning Chinese or finding some way to translate the app, Chelsea Stark on Mashable has a little tutorial you can find here.

I have not had the pleasure of creating my own yet, and so far the teenager has spared me and has not created a mortifying one for me, but hey if she is bored it may be coming soon!  So, if you are looking for a distraction this morning, give it a whirl. Feel free to share it with me, and as soon as I have one done, be on the lookout for it. If you have an app you think I would enjoy to pass my Mondays, or any morning fee free to share it. Here at SYDCON, we believe in sharing trending technology from other developers. Happy Monday all!
