There is no more weather to talk about in Texas. There are only degrees of hot :P
So I'm heading to 50 and have only played one home video game more than once. The spouse got me a cellphone a few years ago that I rarely carry. Everywhere I see people peering intently into their palms while giving loving finger strokes to some flat thing cradled in their hand.
Am I missing something?
In celebration of paying off the house and getting news I can make long term plans, I decided to get a Smart Phone...Having no idea whatsoever what they do or what to look for. I just wanted the biggest screen possible short of a tablet. We found a carrier that had the best plan for our area and shopped them for a phone.
As luck would have it, Costco had the big phone $300 cheaper than the carriers store. Plus, I got another one free. So we both got smart phones; The Samsung Galaxys2 and s3.
Didn't know it was this years smart phone darling. I just wanted a big screen and lots of memory so I could load music in it like an ipod.
Now I'm finding out about apps. They have a pinball app! Okay, that's a game I'll play. There is some app called Evernote that has been handy for jotting things down.
So, does anyone know a better app for "to-do" lists, notes etc that doesn't go...to The Cloud. How about a calender to write my appointments and birthdays on.
And, which are the good Compass, level, measuring tape, tool apps?
Because I don't know what I don't know about these phones, are there things to look out for and don't do?
Are there apps that you think are the greatest things since sliced bread?
Let's talk about smart phones.
