Now that it’s been a few days and I’m mostly comfortable with using my new Droid, I decided tonight was the night to jump in and learn more about the numerous apps that are available for download. I had downloaded 2 or 3 right when I activated the phone (thanks to the helpful reps at Verizon Wireless), but really got into it tonight. Right off the bat, I’ll say that I’m not going to get into an argument with any iPhone users about how many more apps the iPhone has over the Droid. My point is that for a new Droid user, I’ve found a ton of really cool apps that I’m really excited about. My faves so far? Children’s Health (as a mom w/2 young boys I can see this coming in VERY handy); Google Sky Map (it’s super cool); Healthy Recipes (good for the New Year resolutions); Key Ring (allows me to get rid of all those annoying “rewards” cards that I carry in my purse); ShopSavvy (scan a barcode and find the item plus compare costs at various stores); and Twidroid (Twitter app for Droid) to name a few. It is pretty overwhelming with thousands of apps out there. What struck me as I was perusing the “market” for apps was how devices like the Droid can put all sorts of resources, tools and more right into my hand, all easily accessible in one spot. Maybe one day I won’t need to carry around a purse — I’ll have everything I need in my mobil device. Sounds cool at first, but what would I do with all my cool purses?!
The Daily Krier is running commentary on what's happening in my life on a regular basis. I write about things that interest me -- my family, my hobbies, my career in marketing. The blog was born from my interest in writing, my need to become more involved in all things related to social media, and my desire to start on my personal brand. The blog title is a play on my last name. It's technically pronounced "kreer" but everyone pronounces it as "cry-er". The mis-pronounciation lends itself extremely well to the title, don't you think?
