So I’m just ending a long weekend in the South of France and it’s been a great weekend, and I have to say that I’ve seen so many mobile devices being used. iPhones have been the choice for many people, whether we we have been in a restaurant or a beach cafe I have seen so many people using iPhones, mostly 5S devices and I’ve seen a few 5C’s too. I’ve also seen a few Galaxy Note phones, in face the Note in my opinion is a popular choice and I can see the appeal of using it, large screen and the ability for handwritten notes it’s a great device. Not so many people using Windows Phones devices in the South of France but something I did see was a lot of people using iPads, I’m often amazed at the number of people who use iPad tablets, people on the beach using them, reading ebooks or watching movies and it’s a great way to pass the time. to be fair I’d be lost without my iPad Mini, it comes with me everywhere, and it’s great from handwritten notes through to sending emails. I also like to watch the occasional movie on it too.
I’m currently flying over France at the moment updating this on my iPhone as we fly to the French Rivera. Flying 33,000 feet with views to die for. I’m writing this on my iPhone, typing away, and I have to admit that I’m pretty decent at touch typing, I know there is a lot of negativity about the iPhone keyboard but I think it’s pretty awesome. I can type at a good speed and to be fair I hit pretty good accuracy when I’m typing, which means that I can spit out a good editorial using my iPhone. It also means that I can leave the MacBook Pro at home so I just use the iPhone and I have also brought my iPad with me too. Here is a funny story as I was checking through security the security officer thought I was carrying a screwdriver, seriously? To be fair he was doing his job, turns out it was my stylus for the iPad, we both laughed afterwards after I showed him how it worked and now he wants one for his iPad. So that is my travelling story to the South of France today. Anyway I’m 30 minutes from landing in Nice, flying over the Alps and I need to switch off my iPhone, yes as I mentioned I am typing this on my iPad. I hope you’re having a good day and that you are enjoying using your mobile devices.
I’ve used my iPad today to check Facebook, one of my friends has nominated for the ICE bucket challenge. Of course check my tweets, make note of my gym routine, sort what I need to pack for a flight that I am taking to the South of France tomorrow. Other uses today, iMessage a friend, watch a video clip that someone sent me. Handwrite two notes to friends. Design a poster for a charity event that a friend is putting on. Make a note of a DJ session I have been invited to, make a note of the tunes that I wish to spin. On my iPhone I have been taking photographs of a cool building I like, ordered something online quickly with the saved account details stored on my iPhone. Sort my diary for next week, order flowers a friend and arrange for them to be delivered. These are just a couple of the ways that I have used my iPhone and iPad.
