Getting to Know You: Bianca Torchia
We care about mobile users and their experiences. To find out how people on the street are using their devices, we do quick weekly interviews with friends, supporters, and fellow iPhone users. This week, we took the opportunity to chat with one of our own, Bianca Torchia. You can check out Bianca on Instagram here.
Name: Bianca Torchia
Occupation: My official title is “Community Manager” here at Orchard. That means I run our blog, write and edit copy for our website, oversee our online presence on social media, and interact with our customers through our live chat (come say hi!).
What kind of phone do you have? 16GB iPhone 5 in black, bought through Orchard of course.
What’s your favorite app? This is tough because I am not really an app person. I tend to only download things when I have to, so besides the required iPhone apps, I have the Zopim app so I can live chat with our customers and the Facebook Pages app. Sometimes I worry I’m a Luddite. I only have one true love when it comes to fun or superfluous apps: QuizUp. You get to face off against your friends or total strangers on all sorts of trivia topics!
Why? QuizUp lets you do trivia without having to grab a board game or go to a bar for their trivia night. The app itself is really well thought out and beautifully executed. Plus, I have a lot of weird and disparate pockets of knowledge (think: business-rescue reality TV, analytic philosophy, anything to do with horses) and QuizUp has topics that cater to even me. I’m only about a year out of school, so it’s nice to have some validation for my smarts still!
What is usually your first thought when you wake up? Feed the cat before he bites your face, Bianca.
