Roku Stick & $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

ArtKick-Giveaway

Art is expensive and, in many cases, it can be difficult to find space in your home for it. After a while, you may become tired of looking at the same piece of art. You’ve already spent a fair amount of money on the piece so you don’t want to get rid of it either. Luckily, because of modern technology, there is a new, free choice available to you.

Artkick is a free iOS and Android app that lets you utilize your TV to stream a variety of art or photos rather than just sitting there blank. Users can choose from over ¼ million images, separated by category for ease of browsing and selection. From van Gogh’s Starry Night, to NASA’s Hubble images of deep space, to Ansel Adams landscapes and modern contemporary photography – Artkick has a selection that appeals to every taste! Maybe you’d prefer to see your favorite family pictures scrolling across the television; Artkick can do that too! The app can easily pull all of your favorite photos from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Picasa, SmugMug and Dropbox.

So what do you need to do? To use Artkick follow these steps:

  • Download the Artkick mobile app from either app store. As I mentioned before, it’s free! You can download the mobile app from the iOS App store or the Android Google Play store. Think of this as your intelligent remote control. Now, you need to link it to your TV.
  • Connect your TV to the internet in one of two ways:
    • (1) directly if you own one of the supported brands of SmartTVs (specifically Sharp, Sony, LG, and Samsung TVs). If you have a smart TV from one of the previously mentioned brands, you can download the Artkick TV app from your TV’s app store directly.
    • (2) indirectly if your TV is not among the currently supported SmartTV brands using a small external device that can easily connect your TV to your wireless network. Google’s Chromecast ($35) or Roku’s Streaming Stick ($50) are great options.
  • When you start the Artkick app on your tablet or phone for the first time, you must set up a user account to stream images to your TV. A valid email address is all that is required.
  • Once you’ve set up a user account, the app will walk you through the process of linking the TV to your phone or tablet. Again, think of your phone or tablet as your remote control.

It’s as simple as that. Your otherwise blank TV is now the conversational piece at your next dinner party!

Falling-into-Autumn

Are you sick of summer?  Now that the kids are back to school and pools are closing, many of us are ready to say goodbye to summer and hello to Fall. It is nearly the time of year when we can expect the weather to cool, and some of our favorite crops are harvested; delicious fall vegetables like pumpkins, apples, squash, and many others. While many of us are excited about autumn being right around the corner, we also know it comes with certain expenses. Fall festivals, a new fall wardrobe, favorite fall recipes, and Halloween don’t come cheap, leaving many of us already counting our pennies in preparation for September 22.
