How Android Changed My Life
That’s right. A smart phone changed my life. Before I owned an Android device, I was oblivious to its existence, content with making phone calls and sending SMS on my humble Nokia phone running on Symbian OS. It’s amazing how differently I think now, like there’s nothing my Android phone can’t do. Here are a few things that changed since I owned an Android device.
This part has changed for me in two different ways.
- Handwritten notes flew out the window when I got my Android smart phone. With the abundance of note-taking apps to help you write, save and remember any detail of your life, I found myself grabbing my phone rather than a pen and paper.
- Android gave me something new to write about. This blog and my contributions in other websites are proof of that. Just when I was losing interest in writing anything, my new discoveries with my phone encouraged me to write again.
Before Android, I would usually wait until I’m home in front of the computer to do anything in the Internet – check e-mails, write blog posts, and watch videos on YouTube. Now, I can do it all whenever and wherever I choose. I even get notified of new e-mails and Facebook messages, the same way I receive a text message. I can interact with people on the go and not have to wait until I’m home. It amazed and delighted the web junkie in me.
With the attraction I had with the Android platform, it was inevitable for me to eventually gain interest in other mobile technologies. I started visiting and reading technology sites more often and find all the information interesting, albeit overwhelming at first. What I used to perceive as something I would not understand is now what I crave to learn more of.
There’s a lot more other things I do with my Android phone – like paying bills online, checking PayPal balances, track my spending habits, scanning documents, look for recipes and even measuring objects. It seems like the possibilities are endless with the apps found in the Google Play Store.
How about you? How has Android changed the way you live?
