So I got a smartphone. Now what?
I have always had shitty free cell phones. I just got my first smartphone, an LG Ally. It is an Android phone. It seems pretty neat, because it has both a touch screen and a pull out QWERTY keyboard so I can actually type on it, which is good, because I cannot type on touch screens AT ALL, due to my apparently enormous fingers. I like how it integrates with gmail and google maps, but.... now what? What do people even use smartphones FOR?
[quote="karaokeninja"]What do people even use smartphones FOR?Updating one's facebook status on the go.
And - you know - stuff.
But I hate facebook.
I've got my email and twitter running on my blackberry and that's about it.
Maybe a good solitaire game for when you're waiting in line?
Use mine to browse net when I'm not able to get to a computer . Retrieve stuff like receipts , reference numbers etc etc.
Makes a nice little quick Remote Desktop/SSH fixer upper for things like Print Spoolers stop working or emergency rebooting servers.
Use it to make Skype calls when I scan some free wifi.
Have an RSS/Podcast app on mine if I want to catch the latest episode of my favourite podcast.
Use it as my alarm clock to wake my dopey ass up at 5AM
Take uncompromising videos/photos of myself and send to everyone in my contacts list.
I've tried to use the sound recorder apps on the phone , but I find it just easier to writes text notes to myself.YMMV.Also I hate my voice.
My screen is a bit too small for the manga / comic viewers but I guess you can give it a shot if your phone display is large enough.
Edit:Forgot to add , I tether it to my Bluetooth system in my car for hands free receiving of calls.
Try doing a search for "Top 10 apps for [your phone here]" and trying out the results.
