Neues Kochbuch: Thomas Sixt kocht vor

Ich glaube es sind fast fünf Jahre, dass Thomas Sixt Thomas Sixt kocht vorund ich uns regelmäßig austauschen, Kochwelt vs. Social Media Welt. Der Headcam-Cooking-Vorreiter und Wahlwiener mit dem großen YouTube-Kanal hat im letzten Jahr unzählige Koch-Apps in alle erdenkbaren App- und EBook-Stores gebracht und ist seit ein paar Wochen mit Headcam-Cooking auch im österreichischen Fernsehen zu sehen. Der Postbote hat mir letzte Woche aber keinen Fernseher gerbracht…
Thomas Sixt kocht vorThomas Sixt: kocht vor ist quasi das Begleitrezeptbuch zu den ganzen Videos. Oder umgekehrt. Ausführliche Rezeptbeschreibung, schönes Foto, damit man weiß wie es aussehen sollkann und ein QR-Code als Link zum Video Thomas Sixt kocht vor – wie ich finde eine zur Abwechslung sinnvolle Anwendung des QR-Codes.
Das ganze auf schönem Papier gedruckt, nicht zu schwer, gut aufzuschlagen. Los geht’s, guten Appetit.

App-Updates from Thomas Sixt, Sleep Cycle and eBay

My friend Thomas Sixt, chef and cookbook author (check out the headcam cooking videos) not only has a bunch of German cookbooks in the Apple Bookstore but also some English versions. A couple of weeks ago he launched The Perfect Wiener Schnitzel as English ebook. 15 pages with great high quality and of course a video putting it all together. Go to the App Store and check out The Perfect Wiener Schnitzel.

Sleep Cycle, once favorite sleep-tracking app has recently launched version 4.0 and become usable again. Look and function have been revamped and it loggs beautifully that I am not sleeping enough. The app isn’t perfect yet (which app is), e.g. if I accidentally end the logging during the night (e.g. a child needs attention and I want a flashlight really quick) I have to start a new log and can’t splice the two periods together. Instead I have two pieces that are deemed no good sleep because they are too short. Aside from that, the app has become much better.

The new official eBay app is actually quite grand, it certainly has led to an increased eBay activity on my part, despite being a big fan of Stuffle. eBay and email had become a weak system and the app just rectifies that. Searches are much easier and I receive push-notifications for soon ending auctions I am monitoring or have already bid on. Paypal-payment works as well as changing delivery addresses. This app is well thought through and in my opinion for a better eBay experience.
