APP OF THE MONTH: PSEUBOARD

pseuBoard is hands down my favourite new app – [Note: I may be bias] Because it was created by one of my best friends, Astley Lee, I’ve had access to it in all its different manifestations for the last few months. The latest update to the app improves the ease of use dramatically and it is now ready to be shared with the world.

Put simply, pseuBoard is a .gif sharing application but what makes it unique and exceptional is that it presents as a keyboard which can be added alongside your regular/emoji-boards, therefore the gifs are as accessible as typing a word or set of *heart-eye* emojis.

On top of ease and accessibility, the true winning element is the assortment of gifs Astley has collected for use – There is something for everyone and beyond that, there’s a clever/smart-ass way to answer any of your friend’s texts. Seriously. Most of the 100+ gifs on the app are #rare and will truly have your friends impressed while in fits of laughter. Over the last few months, I’ve had countless “wow”, “you’re the gif queen”, and “how do you do it!?” responses to my gif-filled rants.

I guess my secrets out. Oh well.

It’s a freezing Friday night in Auckland City and I’m on Ponsonby Road waiting to meet Eden and Manu aka ENO x DIRTY, Central AK’s latest addition to the thriving New Zealand music scene. Their EP, Easter Eggs & Good Sportsmanship was released last month to resounding, positive feedback. Noisey premiered it stating that the sound was something ‘both familiar and unique.’

LISTEN: PODCAST – HOW NOT TO BE AN A**HOLE

[Dan, Dom, Todd – Photo by Cameron Robinson]

My friend Todd Williams (Louie Knuxx) has been running an hour long weekly podcast with fellow New Zealanders, Dominic Hoey (Tourettes), and Dan Mawby. While Dan exists mostly in the background as the technical wizard, Todd and Dom tackle the airwaves with their own brand of unique and refreshing candour. Both men are exceptionally informed and hilarious, which makes for some interesting dialogue.

Each week they feature a different guest or guests, and cover a wide range of topics, with nothing excluded as too sacred. They are now 21 episodes in, and have spoken with politicians, police, bloggers, rappers, and athletes.
