Ice Breaker – Smart Phone Applications and Computer Programs

Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

Question:  What is one of your favorite smart phone applications, tablet applications, or computer programs?

My Answer:  I use many different software packages for my phone, tablet, and laptop.  It’s hard to pick out a clear favorite.  One that I recently stumbled upon that I’m really liking is Periscope by Twitter.  Periscope is an application for your smart phone that lets you live-stream to other viewers.  It also lets you watch in on your friends when they live-stream.  I love the comments and likes that appear on the screen throughout the live clip.  Follow me at @jonstolpe.
