There is no doubt that mobile technology has come a very long way over recent years, and advancements made when it comes to mobile phones have enabled us to enjoy a huge variety of functions and benefits when using these devices.
Whereas our mobiles were once used for just phonecalls and text messages, we can now do a huge variety of tasks ranging from playing online games to taking photographs and even receiving voice orders from our mobile device. Here are seven of the most ground-breaking mobile innovations.
l Social networking: Today’s smartphones are perfect for networking with your friends and family via sites such as Facebook and Twitter amongst others. Most allow very easy access at the touch of the screen so you can connect with others, upload photos, share information, update your status and much more with minimal hassle. And for those with a love for all things nostalgic, then the Timehop app even creates a digital archive of your life.
l Take photographs: The cameras on smartphones have become increasingly sophisticated over the years, and this means that you can now use your phone to take high quality photos while you are out and about without the need for a digital camera or other equipment. And with Google’s Snapseed app, you can access an almost professional level of photo editing tools, all from the convenience of your smartphone.
l Enjoy entertainment: Many people now use their smartphones to enjoy a wide range of entertainment while they are on the move or even when in the home. This includes entertainment such as watching streamed movies via a range of specialist streaming sites, listening to thousands of radio stations online with the Streema app, or watching YouTube videos amongst other things.
l Playing games: When you have a smartphone, you also have your very own personal mobile gaming device. You can download fun and self-explanatory mobile games such as You Must Build A Boat on your device as a way of livening up the morning commute. And you can also play games such as online slots and table games at places such as Springbok Casino, where you can enjoy a wealth of gaming entertainment and a great variety of virtual casino games all from the palm of your hand.
l Surf the Internet: Your smartphone makes it very easy to get online and surf the internet whenever you want to, so no matter where you are, you can enjoy being able to access the worldwide web. With more and more websites now adapted for mobile devices you can also enjoy a high quality surfing experience when you use your mobile to get online.
l Get fit: If you want a little help when it comes to getting into shape and getting fit, you can get the assistance you need with the help of your smartphone. You can download a range of health and fitness apps that will do everything from providing you with nutritional information on a wide range of foods, to aiding you with monitoring and tracking tools. One great example is the NexTrack app that is not only free, but also manages to make exercise fun!
l Use it as a personal assistant: Depending on which smartphone you have, you can use your device as a personal assistant to help organise your life and keep you informed. This includes using digital assistants such as Siri from Apple or Cortana, the digital assistant for Windows 10.
With so many different functions available, it is little wonder that today’s mobile phones have become such as integral part of our lives.
