Thing 4 Keeping Up

As I was going through Flipboard for iPad I found I was overwhelmed with its content. I spent an hour reading through its content and came away confused. I will need to revisit this and see how I can apply it to my busy lifestyle.

Thing 3 Utilities

Used this app at Best Buy & Walmart when shopping for a Blu Ray player. The red laser bar code and QR code (the little box with black & white dots) was easy to scan after the app was downloaded to my phone. This told me the features as well as the best prices in the area. I will use this feature again when comparison shopping.

Thing 2 Mobile Devices

Since I have installed iOS7 on both my iPad & iPhone  it sync all my information and apps. This is great because you only have to download once. I have been most impressed with Siri. How many time have we been in gathering when someone has a question we want a answer to RIGHT NOW.
Siri can answer it fast. It is powered by Bing but I have found no problem with it although I usually Google everything. Another feature I use repeatedly is the time stamp with texting. Helpful to know  when you received that text so you can respond in a timely manner and not 2 days later.

Thing 1 Blogging/Registration

Looking forward to another adventure in "23 things". I have not taken the time to explore all the "stuff" on my iPad & iPhone so looking forward to learning more short cuts & all the functions.
Always open to learning more about devices so I can be familiar with technology and what people are talking about.
