Last year, I got an IPhone. I did it for many reasons but received a lot of benefits without knowing it.
My primary reason was so I could have internet access in many different locations. Since the building end of my job requires remote locking/unlocking of doors and monitoring temperature settings. The IPhone would let me do it well.
But I found some serendipities.
First, I did not realize who much simpler life became. Suddenly, I had my calendar, email, and to-do list all in one location. (The last time I had that was in a large binder I had to carry.) Now, when at a doctor’s office or somewhere else, I can put down appointments or other items needing attention. (That gets it off your mind, David Allen style.)
Second, the app store opened a new world to me. While it is easy to go overboard, many apps for the IPhone are free or less than a buck. In future posts I will cover some of those apps in detail.
Third, the IPhone is elegant. That’s not a necessity, but it shows not just good engineering but also some creative thinking as well. For a Windows guy, it sure makes Apple appealing.
The phone works well and I get the others as a terrific bonus.
Other smartphones have many (or even more) of the same features. But for me, the Iphone with its larger touchscreen is wonderful.
