Apps

Mobile-Deposit

Save gas and save time by using your smartphone or mobile device to make bank deposits. Why drive to the bank when you can deposit your checks right where you stand (or sit). If this old dinosaur can handle the task, so can you. Most, if not all financial institutions have their own banking app [...]

Google-Docs

Since I’m in the middle of reformatting my computer (that’s a long story), I don’t have access to my usual software. Being that I’m inspired to write, I needed software that would facilitate writing and still be operational on a computer that is not fully functional. Since I have a Google Drive, I thought why [...]

iPod-to-Smartphone

This was not a conscious decision. I abandoned my iPod because my iPod abandoned me first. How the Split Occurred My iPod died. Well, it didn’t die, but the On/Off button stopped working. The iPod remained on but without having the button to activate the screen, I couldn’t control what played. I had an endless [...]

Samsung-Netflix

I had the scare of my life when my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 crashed and wouldn’t turn back on. I was so shocked that all I could do was stare at the device in disbelief. Having had the device for all of about 6 months, this wasn’t what I expected. Here’s the scenario leading up [...]

Road-Map

Purchasing a Smartphone saved me the expense of buying a GPS navigation device for my car. If it were not for my daughter looking at me the way only a teenager can and asking, “Why don’t you just use your phone?” I’d still be considering the purchase of a GPS device. Prior to using the [...]

Appaholic

I’ll reluctantly admit, the purchase of the Samsung Galaxy tablet and the Motorola Moto G has turned me into an App-a-holic! I keep searching for apps that will make my life easier. As I indulge in my newfound addiction I’ll share my opinion on some of the apps I’ve found and use. Below I write [...]

Google-Play-Apps

From time to time I’ll share information on apps that have been helpful to me. In an earlier post, I mentioned KingSoft Office, Barcode Scanner, Amazon Kindle, WordPress, Smart Voice recorder and banking software. To that list of apps I’d like to add the following: (Insert your auto insurance company name here) App I don’t [...]

cell-phone-vs-smartphone

Let me preface this post by saying I’m not much of a cell phone user. Cell phones are relegated to emergency only status.  As such, the thought of purchasing a Smartphone was considered a waste of time and money.  I’ve since changed my opinion. Smartphones get a bad rap.  We equate them to talking/texting drivers [...]

KingSoft-Menu-Options

Mobile devices are great tools for watching the latest videos, social networking, texting and surfing the web.  They can also serve as a viable tool for office workers. I’ve not tested the full capacity of the Galaxy Note 10.1 word processing capabilities, but I can say I’m able to get a lot of my writing [...]

Dragon-Remote

After using the dictation app that came with the Samsung Galaxy, I decided to try remote dictation with Dragon’s NaturallySpeaking. After all, if I can write one article on two separate devices at the same time using Android’s default dictation software, imagine what I can do with NaturallySpeaking. To use Dragon’s remote microphone feature you’ve [...]
