  • See Saw

    Alix McAlpine / @alixmcalpine
    Director, Content Strategy, GIPHY Studios
    Interests: men, wine, contemporary art
    Favorite App/Web tool: See Saw

    “Galleries in LA (like most everything else) are pretty spread out, and when I moved here I found myself really missing going from gallery to gallery on Saturday afternoons like I did back in New York. See Saw is super easy to use and the recommended shows are always on point. I love the map option so I can visualize which clusters of galleries I should head to in which order. It’s also simple to toggle to other cities I’m visiting to find out the must-see shows there, too.”

  • Authy

    Full Stack Engineer, GIPHY
    Interests: motorcycles, computers, reading, beer
    Favorite App/Web tool: Authy

    “2-factor auth can be a pain in the butt sometimes. Which app do I use? Is it via text? How do I do the QR code thingy? Do I need my phone? Who knows. Authy makes it easy. It has an app on your phone that connects with an app on your computer. It even has a copy button because typing is for scrubs.”

  • VOX

    Johanna Kenney
    Senior Product Designer, GIPHY
    Interests: dogs, NYC life, playing music
    Favorite App/Web tool: VOX

    “When I want a no frills, high quality way to listen to the music collection I put so many years and money into, I reach for VOX. No Apple upsells, no algorithm recommendations. Just me, my CD rips, and my college FLAC torrents walking down memory lane.”

  • Google Keep

    Prev 4 / 8 Next

    Fiona Condon / @fioroco
    Search Engineer, GIPHY
    Interests: reading, eating & tweeting
    Favorite App/Web tool: Google Keep

    “Google Keep finally got me into the habit of writing down the ideas and interesting quotes and useful recommendations that I used to instantly forget. It seems silly, but the ability to choose the note color from a limited set does a lot for find-ability without overcomplicating the note-taking process. Plus the desktop web UI is awesome.”

  • StockX

    Prev 5 / 8 Next

    Danny Chang / @thedannychang
    Technical Partnerships Manager, GIPHY
    Interests: music, (watching) mixed martial arts, graphic novels, sneakers, getting PAID
    Favorite App/Web tool: StockX

    “StockX not only tracks the trends in market value of virtually every sneaker that’s released, but it’s also a marketplace for sellers and buyers. It’s an incredibly helpful tool for sneaker collectors like me to get a good idea of a fair price before buying or selling them on the secondary market.”

  • DocuSign

    Prev 6 / 8 Next

    Mike Bruno / @riskybusinessMB
    Associate Producer, GIPHY Studios
    Interests: music, reading, basketball
    Favorite App/Web tool: DocuSign

    “I don’t even know why I have so many things to sign, but I always immediately panic about how I can get it done as quickly and easily as possible. DocuSign has been a lifesaver. My friends are like, ‘we get it, you love DocuSign.'”

  • GIFGun

    Prev 7 / 8 Next

    Jason Clarke / @bucketofbrains
    Animator & Producer, GIPHY
    Interests: animation, chilling, and hanging out
    Favorite App/Web tool: GIFGun

    “As a busy animator on the go, I was thrilled when I first learned about GIFGun. It makes it possible for me to export GIFs directly from After Effects, without having to run a Quicktime file through Photoshop. Now I have more time to work on my Grand Unified Theory.”

  • Google Photos
