Video: Lady Geek TV Episode #1 – New Mobile App Show. Ovi highlights + chance to win a Nokia X6.

| June 29, 2010 | 9 Replies

A new mobile app show has popped up on YouTube starring a couple of ladies. These girls aren’t just pretty faces – they’re tech geeks! Lady Geeks.

I’m unfamiliar with Debs (on the right – who sounds Welsh :D) but Rhiain Morgan (who’s definitely Welsh 😀 – yay Wales!) is an ex T3 editor and true tech geek. Debs is the main presenter for the next 12 weeks and she’ll be joined by many other Lady Geeks, such as Rhiain and Maggie Philbin (BBC Radio/TV presenter)

This is a very professionally done Mobile App show with a very straight forward aim explained below in their blurb:

The Lady Geek App Show aims to break down the cliches of the gadget industry by putting smartphone apps to work in real women’s lives. Each show will showcase the latest and greatest apps for the leading smartphone brands and was devised following YouGov Sixth Sense research- which showed that more smartphones were bought by women then by men in the past six months, but twice as many women have still not downloaded a SINGLE app.

“Women told us they were frustrated with the sheer volume of apps available and struggled to find apps which made a genuine difference to their lives.’s goal is to show how apps can help with every-day tasks so that people can get the most from their smartphone” said Belinda Parmar, Founder of Lady Geek.

Advertisements will showcase the very-best apps, on all platforms – there’s something for Nokia, Blackberry, Apple and Android customers.

The U.K. market strongly leads in growth of smartphone adoption over the past year and there are more than 11 million smart-phone users in the UK – a growth of 70% according to comscore.

The Lady Geek team will be giving weekly give-aways to participating audience members, including the latest Nokia smartphones such as the X6 and the stylish E72 in white. We will also invite women and men to tell her what their favourite apps are for our app wall of fame.

The show will be hosted here at Lady Geek TV or you can download our videos directly from the Ovi Store

In their first episode, there is a mini spin off for just Ovi Related things, Maps and App Store. The girls do a navigation test of Paper vs Ovi Maps and show case some useful apps on the Ovi Store.


The full show is below which also brings in devices from other platforms.

Interestingly, one of the first “women useful apps” they review here is a toilet finding app, Sit or Squatt on BlackBerry or iPhone.

Touch Note is another cool app where you take a photo, add a caption and a message and this can be transformed into a Physical postcard that will be mailed to your chosen address. Neat service.

    When I try and click on these videos to play them it just says they’re private and can’t be viewed…?

    • Jay Montano

      Yeah, you’re right. Maybe they’ve gone a bit shy. Hmmm. Their channel doesn’t have any other video available and it’s not available at the Ovi Store like they said it would be.

      Not sure what’s going on.

    Wasn’t interestiong anyway- no info whatsoever, no critical word. This seemed like a Nokia ad.

  • Jamie

    They are there now, go see!

    Georg – the idea is that it’s a quick showcase of cool apps that are out there, rather than picking faults with stuff. Plus, it’s fun! The show is covering apps from all platforms, so there should be something for everyone. :)

    All I concluded is that the writers have a low opinion of women’s intelligence when it comes to technology. the dumb, patronizing voices in the name of ‘fun’ were a nice added touch. herr derr

      I’m not even sure if it is even really targeted for Women or for techy/geeky guys wanting to watch geeky women.
