Tech Culture: Christina Milian's favorite apps

4:11 /

Singer-songwriter Christina Milian sits down backstage at "The Voice" and reveals her list of favorite apps to OMG Insider's Kevin Frazier.

-I'm surrounded by so much talent up here. I've got Garrett, I've got Sarah. -For the past three years on The Voice, Christina has served as the social media correspondent. -All right. Well, we have another question. It is from Twitter. -Giving fans exclusive access to their favorite contestants and coaches with online bonus features, behind-the-scenes interview and up to the minute updates during the live broadcast. -How's it been being a social media ambassador? -It's been great. I mean, I never thought I would be-- I would have this title as a job. Like, I'm like total renaissance on me now with everything, singers, songwriter, actress, this and that. -Uh-hmm. -And now, social media correspondent and it's really a new job. Like it's a real job that people are getting hired for and then they're helping businesses. So, I love it. This is such a great show and this show has done so well with social media because they're all about connecting with their fans. And so, with my job, I get to speak to the fans, show them the most exclusive footage and do what we're doing now, -Yeah. -where it's really just laid back, -Yes. -and it's not so like, hey, how did you feel going up on a stage? Like, it's really like let's get into your story, let's get close and then the world is really learning about them, you know, through that moment. -So, in a sense, is this a dream job for you? -Absolutely. It's a dream job because I love what I'm doing. I already-- like this was something I did already and now to get paid and do something that I love, it's like-- -Right. -Oh, wow, it's like I hit a lottery. -From Instagram and Twitter to up incoming apps like Mobli, Christina is active on a wide range of platforms. -I'm huge in Instagram, I love Instagram. I'll use social media to see the pictures 'cause I tend to find them, you know, when people hash tag my name, I'll find it on Twitter or I'll find it on Instagram or Mobli. Mobli is another one. It's video and it's pictures. And you know, hash tag is pretty much starts a story, so it makes everything so much easy to find everything. My best ones are like especially ones that are for pictures because I feel the world speaks through pictures now. -Uh-hmm. -You know, even if I'm placing something on Instagram, I might have put it through three other apps before placing it on Instragram or Twitter, -Sure. -or on our Facebook page of The Voice or something. I tend to go to like Pic Stitch and try to put in as much pictures as I can. Gosh, there's so many. There's a new one that-- well, I don't know if it's new but it's called Fancy and I'm a shopper. I like to shop. -Oh, the Fancy, of course I have it-- I have that app. -Yes, Fancy. -It's yeah-- -That one is so cool because it opens your eyes to so many new products that are out there and you could just Fancy it or you could buy it. -If you could invent an app, -Uh-huh. -what would that app be? -If I could invent an app, I've had a couple different ideas other than something like the songwriter's pad, I've also had an idea to invent an app where it's kinda like a travel buddy where-- but it's geared towards women. I find a lot of women are traveling more often now and they're having like girls vacations and it's like all about girls' time. I would love there to be an app that is kind of a travel app, where you're kinda placing up pictures about your trip and what you did, where's the place to go, how much fun you had and like, you know, you can kinda just share it with your friends. You know, talking about, you know, all the fun places we've been and kinda sharing those moments and the right places to go with each other. -So, how does Christina stay so connected to her favorite apps? -I have two regular iPads like the first one, the second one and then I got the mini one. But the mini works out well in my purse with the three other phones. -Wow. So, tell me, what do you do on your iPads? -I think I just, you know, I just purchased them immediately as-- you know, as soon as they all came out, -Yeah. -and thought it was genius because I was tired to kinda carry my laptop around everywhere. -Right -So, on each one, I mean, they're kind of all very similar but they might have more apps or different apps on each one. -Uh-hmm. -Like maybe one have iMovie, and that's where I'll edit like movies or things that I'll put on my YouTube channel. -Yeah. -And because that takes up a lot more space, I won't put that on my other iPad. My second one, I probably have a lot of shopping stuff like Gilt and I have-- -I love Gilt. -Fab. The foundry, all of the shopping websites, I have probably that one.
