A few weeks ago, I got my first smart phone. This week is proving to be great fun as I adapt to the new piece of technology in my hand.

I have sought out some of the most useful applications for my phone, one of the foremost among them for me being a WordPress app. I’m using it right now, actually. That’s right. I can blog right from my phone.

I have already been working on several more stories for sending out to various publications, and now I can manage that on the go as well, thanks to dropbox. Any stories I have in progress can now be modified on the go, via cloud storage.

I have downloaded a pair of mobile reading apps, one from Kobo, since I started an account through them back when I worked at Borders, and the other from my current employer, PPLD. Now I have mobile electronic reading, so I don’t have to bother with the old eReader debate. I will still focus my reading on paper books, as I have already said time and time again. In my new position with PPLD, though, it’s going to be very much to my benefit to have a more thorough understanding of the services we have available.

The final critical app I have found (all free, by the way) is a QR code reader. This lets me scan and create quick read bar codes from my phone, letting me quickly jump directly from my scanner to a url wherever I am. It’s fun and convenient.

Anyway, I know that I still have a lot of reading and writing to do, and I hear thunder in the distance too. I should wrap it up for the night.

  1. Very exciting. I’ve had one for a couple years now, and I really don’t know anymore what I’d do without it. What kind did you get? Most of my personal apps are silly, things like soundboards (which are so much fun to set as ringtones) but I have some practical ones as well, such as my Nook mobile app, and some for things like banking and reading the daily scriptures. I’ll admit I am also hopelessly addicted to Facebook, mostly for looking at fun pictures.
