Klay Thompson: iPhone or Android?Golden State Warrior Klay Thompson talks about his favorite phone, his favorite apps, and the one thing he wishes his phone could do.
[MUSIC]. We're gonna transition just a little bit about yourself and tech outside of basketball. Off the top your phone? Are you an iPhone guy or an Android phone guy? I'm an iPhone. And I don't think it's really by choice. I think it's just I grew up using, you know, iPads to, not iPads, iPods. Now they're on the iPhone. They got your iPod in your iPhone, so. It's just so user-friendly. I mean, it'd be hard for me to change it now. So you would not be switching any time soon, right? I don't think so. [LAUGH]. You know? I even have a Macbook Two. That's you know? It used to be a PC. It used to be a little flip phone. But now I just, Apple, got to give them credit. They do a good job with just user accessibility. Yup. What about? A lot of us use apps every day. Is there kind of an app that? Yeah. You are using the most right now? Or one that you've? Yeah. Always loved? I don't know if it's really beneficial in my life. But I love Pineapple Poker, just cause I love playing cards. That's my app that I probably use the most. That, PostMate is really good. I think that's a great idea, you know? It, it you know, like a middle man, you know? But they go and. They get whatever food you need. I think that's a great app as well. And just general apps, like Yelp. Yeah. I use Yelp if I want to find a good place to eat. I travel to so many different cities. A lot of us also do group messaging. I heard you, like you. Yeah. And the Warriors, the teammates kinda have a group chat. Beyond that, are you pretty active on that? Got a good group chat. On a work chat actually, because. Got a family in the Bahamas, and WhatsApp is a great way to connect with people overseas. Obviously the Shot Tracker app, that's the app I use the most for my work, and for my work life. It's the only that's really beneficial when you're playing basketball, every other app is kind of a distraction. We see you posting on iTunes. [LAUGH] Yeah. Very rarely, but Instagram's a good way to connect with the fans. Okay, this is not my own personal question, but some of my lady friends wanna know, is there a dating app of choice that you use? Wow. No, no dating apps, I've heard of, no, no dating apps for me. No Tinder, or, I don't even know the other ones. I know there's Bubble or something? Booble, yeah. My friends are on that, but, no dating apps for me over here. I don't think, Clay don't, [CROSSTALK] Clay don't need a dating app, right? I don't think I'd be very low profile in there cuz, that's all right. And then the last question is, this might take a second to think about. If your phone coud do one thing for you that, it doesn't do right now. Like anything, whether it's for like you, or for Rocko or something, like If you could just say, I want my phone to do this, what might that be to make your life a little easier? Good question. Let me think, what could it do? I wish my phone could take out the trash for me cuz trash day always slips my mind. It sucks cuz we always build up the trash thing. We got a, what's the, ration off our trash. I wish my phone could physically take my trash from the garage to curbside for the garbage pickup. That's a legit answer there. Yeah. Right on. Okay, thanks a lot, Clay I appreciate it. Yeah, no problem, thank you. Awesome. [MUSIC]
