To say that singer Mike Mohede loves playing video games is an understatement. Outside of work, he splits his time between playing games on his smartphone and playing games on consoles.

Mike began his music career by winning the second season of Indonesian Idol in 2005. He has since released two albums, MIKE in 2005 and Kemenanganku (My Victory) in 2010.

Mike wields an iPhone 5 when he is on the go and controls a PS4 when taking a break at home.
 
Music

I am an avid user of iTunes. I love that I can access a plethora of works from musicians from all over the world with the tip of my finger. Music is constantly playing in my ears throughout the day, either from earphone or docking speakers. I need to hear music constantly.

Recently, I'€™ve been exploring the music app GarageBand, which is a simple digital audio workstation and music sequencer that can record and play back multiple tracks of audio. I use it to create beats and tunes '€” but only simple ones because I cannot play instruments. Through the app, I'€™m learning to create and write music on my phone.

Photography

I take a lot of pictures with my iPhone '€” not selfies though. Whenever I'€™m out of town, I like capturing scenery or a view of the sky and clouds from my window on the plane.

I also like street photography, taking pictures of people on public places: catching someone sleeping with his mouth open or a sidewalk motorcycle mechanic changing tires those sort of moments.

Among the apps I use are Camera360 and Filterstorm. I edit photos on the phone, but not too much.

Games

To be upfront, I gave up on Flappy Bird. I can'€™t get anywhere with the game. Currently, I'€™m playing Walking Dead, Naughty Kitties and Puzzle Craft. Like everybody else, I also play LINE Pokopang.

I am really into my Sony PlayStation 4 ( PS4 ) game console now. I bought it a couple of months ago. I can spend hours and hours on it, losing time orientation. I play the first-person shooter game Call of Duty: Ghost and the soccer game FIFA 14.

If it is possible, I want to be able to bring and play my PS4 everywhere I go.
