CNET News Video: The Game of Thrones cast favorite Apps

1:55 /

Brian Tong finds out what's the cast members go-to app on their smartphone.

-Do you have any go-to app that you love using the most? -Well, I think a thing that's changed my life the most in the past 12 months is the thing called iTunes Match, the fact that iPhones have maximum of 64GB, but you can have all your music stored in the cloud and just stream it to wherever you are. I think that's just a genius idea. -Yeah. We're at tech site and everyone that just saw that, what you said is falling in love with you, like he knows iTunes Match. -Yeah. I just think that my mood swivels on a sixpence sometimes. So you never know what tunes you wanna be listening to at any one time. So, iTunes Match is just perfect for soundtrack in my tumultuous life. -And what is your go-to app? -My go-to app, especially when I'm on a press tour like this, is WhatsApp because it's the best way of staying in contact with my friends and my family, sharing and sending them, you know, the pictures quickly, videos, texts. It's the best thing. -Do you find that really hard because you're so busy, you know, you're bouncing around? -You just wanna keep people up-to-date with what you do, like your closest people in your life up to speed with what you're doing and so, technology has transformed that. When you're working away from home, which, actors, we do a lot, it's the best way of staying in contact with loved ones. -Well, I have a WhatsApp name, so I could give that to you. And if you feel like, you know, texting me, feel free-- -Anytime? -Yeah, anytime. You know, I'm just like, "Hey, what's up? What's up?" -I have an iPhone. -[[unk]] -There's a few apps I've got. I love kind of quite practical apps. So, I've got an app called Hugmail, which is-- I've just discovered, which is where you can just send a postcard with a personal message, one of your photos to anyone, I'm sure you know of it, around the world. I love that. I've been sending ridiculous postcards to all my friends. -If I give you my e-mail,-- -Uh-huh. -would you send me a Hugmail? -Yeah, why not? -You just wanna hug right here? -No. -You don't want a Hugmail right here? -All right, I'll send you a postcard, there. -All right, thanks a lot [unk] -Thanks a lot. -Nice to meet you.
