Phone technology is getting to a point where we may not need other electronic devices other than our phones. They have many tools and uses. Here are some of my favorites.
1 – Calculator Anything from working out a budget to figuring out the amount you should tip can be done with your phone calculator. You will most likely have it with you while shopping, so you can keep track of how much your groceries are costing you before you get to the check out lane. As long as you have a charged phone with you there is no need to buy a basic calculator again.
2 – Alarm Clock This could include any type of time device. As long as you have a phone, there is no need to buy a clock or a watch unless you are one of those people that need a back up alarm. Watches and clocks are becoming simply a form of decoration for home or wrist.
3 – Entertainment Most phones can now play music getting rid of the need for any portable music device. Some you download your songs to. Others you log into your favorite music website using the internet. Our phones also have big enough screens for us to enjoy videos, and television, as well as games.
4 – Communication Naturally the phone has become the main way we communicate with each other. We can call each other, text each other, and email each other from the little device the size of our hand. We can even make our phone calls with live video feed. We can also access our social media using our phones.
5 – Camera Camera use on a phone doesn’t just mean still life photos anymore. We can also record video with our phones. These aren’t horrible cameras either. The have pretty good resolution and take great shots. Plus, going back to communication, it’s easy to share photos with family and friends without the use of the postal service.
6 – Internet Access Many phones don’t just access email anymore. They give directions, show maps, and connect to search engines. In addition to the before mentioned communication and entertainment uses of the phone, you may not need an actual computer for much more than a storage device or printer from time to time.
7 – Apps There are also helpful tools that you can now download with your phone. My particular favorite is the flashlight app. As long as I know where my phone is when the lights go out I don’t have to go searching for the flashlight I haven’t used in three or more months.
8 – Planning Our phones now also have notepads and calendars built into them as well. They can serve as our planners and even remind us of what is scheduled.
What’s your favorite use for your phone that has replaced something else?
