CEO Sounding Board - Favorite App

Question: What is your favorite app?

“My favorite new app is Vine. It’s the ultimate social media outlet. With other platforms I am only able to post a few sentences or a picture, but with Vine I can create a six-second video and distribute it instantly to my followers on the app as well as my other channels. It’s perfect for capturing the excitement of live events. Utilizing Vine allows our followers to experience a ‘snapshot’ of what we do, the venue, the entertainer and the audience reactions. ”

“AroundMe is my go-to app when traveling to help locate the small, local restaurants and bakeries that are often off the beaten path. A significant part of my travels involves searching for new, exciting flavors that are often unique to a particular city. Ultimately, I use these discoveries as inspiration to create a new dish or to bring a regional favorite back home to central Florida.”

Eddy Arriola
Chairman - Apollo Bank - Miami

“Whether I’m scheduling a same-day business lunch, planning a family trip months ahead of time or making plans for a Saturday night out with my wife, the Open Table mobile app has proven very convenient when I’m on the go. Beyond booking reservations, I use Open Table as a source of restaurant reviews and to check menus online.”
