6 Ways My Smartphone Has Simplified My Life

Before I bought my first smartphone a few years ago I researched and discussed the pros and cons to owning one.  I didn’t want to put out $200 for something if I wasn’t really going to use it.  Now, I can’t imagine my life without it.  These are just 6 ways my smartphone has simplified my life.

  1. Connections with family and friends – I’ve been able to check my e-mail and Facebook on the go no matter where I am.  This makes it extremely easy for me to stay in touch with family and friends.  Video chat is only a click away and I’m I’m seeing my family face-to-face.
  2. Camera – I LOVE having a built in camera on my phone, and being able to share those photos with people in an instant.
  3. GPS – I’m the queen on getting lost or as I call it taking the scenic route.  My phone has built in GPS so I never have to ask for directions again becuase it’s buiilt right into it.  This has probably saved me, time, gas, and money.
  4. Calendar – I use this to keep track of all my appointments, bills I have to pay, birthdays and holidays.  It’s hand and again, it’s built right in.
  5. Alarm clock – I use the alarm clock and timer feature every single day.  I don’t use the standard clock radio anymore because of all of the options my phone has.  Less clutter in my house is great.
  6. Entertainment – The versatility of this device is incredible.  You can watch movies, play games, read books, listen to music and much more.  My favorite part is that I don’t have to buy something else to do these because it’s part of the phone.
