Nowadays, it seems like there’s barely anything you can’t do with your mobile device. Whether you’re paying for goods, catching public transport, or conducting your banking affairs, these devices seem to make everything possible without the need to leave the house. For those of you wondering whether you’re getting the most from your device, today we’re looking at some of the things your mobile technology can make possible…
Long gone are the days when your humble mobile phone only had the capacity for one or two games. Now, there are literally thousands of games available to download for your mobile device. Whether you like to play multi-player, retro classics or online poker, there is a game for you. If games aren’t your thing, you can stream the latest movies and TV shows to your phone via apps from the likes of Netflix, Amazon and Hulu. It’s also possible to download e-readers like Kindle that allow you to read books on your device. If reading sounds too much like hard work, consider choosing an audio book or podcast app, where the options for books and shows you can listen to could keep you entertained for decades.
Your mobile device can be a real time saver if you know how to use it properly. Most banks now offer apps, which remove the need to have to pop into your local branch. In fact, speaking of shopping trips, most businesses offer the capacity to browse and purchase online and have your order delivered directly to the door – no need for troublesome trips to the post office! You’ll find apps that help you organise your schedule, your finances, your budget, your commute – you can even download personal assistant apps, which find people to take care of the small tasks you don’t have time for.
Access to information
You need never enter into an argument about a right answer ever again! Once you have a mobile device, all of the world’s information is available at the touch of a button. You’ll be able to answer any trivia question, know the time of the next train, learn all of the day’s top headlines from any country in the world, whether the sun will be shining on your holiday, what time the film you want to see is showing…the list is never-ending. You can learn languages via apps like Duo Lingo, or educate yourself via apps like Udacity that offer free online courses. You’ll also be able to watch videos that walk you through how to do things – make a chair, bake a cake, construct your own garden shed. Having a mobile device opens up a world of possibilities. There’s nothing that you can’t learn online.
