We’ve got a ton of interesting apps and online services to talk about on this week’s GeekWire radio show and podcast, with special guest Monica Guzman, the GeekWire columnist just back from the South by Southwest Interactive conference in Austin.
We talk about the pros and cons of the new iPad, discuss Highlight and other hot apps at SXSW, debate the Homeless Hotspot controversy from the event, and weigh in on the recent Miss Seattle Twitter dustup. Other topics: the upcoming iWitness 911 app and the Parkatmyhouse driveway rental service.
Also listen for details on our App of the Week, Camera Awesome by SmugMug. KIRO-FM engineer Erynn Rose, who puts together our show every week, is an accomplished photographer, and he explains why this app is the best he’s found among the many camera apps available for the iPhone.
