I was at a family get-together a couple weeks ago when my aunt mentioned, “Someday we’ll be able to have all sorts of technology in the palm of our hands.” I held up my iPhone and said, “Someday is here.”
My aunt clarified. “But someday you’ll have a computer that small.”
“This IS a computer. I have access to the Internet from my phone.”
“But someday, you’ll also have a little TV like that.”
“I DO have TV on my phone!” I triumphantly exclaimed while showing off my Netflix app.
Now, my aunt is much older than I am and doesn’t even own a cell phone. I know she isn’t fully aware of what kind of technology is out there. And I know that most of my readers are quite knowledgeable about the myriad of applications available on smartphones. But, even though you guys are savvy, I thought I’d mention a few things you might not know that you can use your phone for. Sure, you can make phone calls, text, listen to music and play games, but what else can you do? Here are a few of a my favorite uses!
