Do you use your phone for everything? Most phones now have apps for this and apps for that, camera, notepads, calendars, alarms, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, email, Safari and this really annoying chick named Siri that doesn’t understand me in the least. I turned her off, but I’m secretly hoping that my forgetful husband will meet her and adore her. Then maybe she can remind him of all the things that I’m tired of naggin’ him about.
I use my phone a lot. I like the games. I’m addicted to playing Chess with Friends, Words with Friends and Scramble. All of which are totally handy when you find yourself locked out of the house, waiting for your husband to get home 40 minutes later. Oh.. and I really like the flashlight app. Its cool to be able to use your phone like a flashlight to open the front door when you forgot to leave the porch light on and come home in the dark. Or when your daughter drops her hair tie on the ground outside the car in a parking lot somewhere and has a melt-down because its her favorite one. I can check the weather, or the Wyoming road report when I’m 50 miles from home. Or, best of all, there is an app for Geocaching for when we have an impulse to find a new Geocache on the way to or from somewhere and just have to be the FTF! (first to find) All of that is convenient, cool and techie when it works, and it a major drag when it doesn’t.
