I was very loyal to my BlackBerry. It was ideal for my needs and allowed me to easily communicate for years. Except when the roller ball stopped working, and the battery no longer charged, and then when I couldn’t use any punctuation.
My husband and I then calculated how much we could save if we were on a Family Plan, and realized it was well worth it to be on the same plan. I was fine replacing my punctuation lacking BlackBerry, but he, being a recent iPhone convert insisted the Apple instrument was much better suited for me.
He was right. I have never looked back. The iPhone far exceeds the capabilities, speed and graphics than the BlackBerry. I’m still amazed by the touch screen functions.
It is mind-blowing how far technology has advanced in ten short years. I would never have believed it in college if I was told I would have an entire computer, camera and calendar in the palm of my hand.
I’m familiar with the argument that BlackBerrys are much easier to type on. I agree the iPhone does take getting used to. The auto spell check needs work, although does provide a good laugh when I send the wrong word.
The only negative I have found is my children constantly ask, “Can I play on your iPhone?” Besides the fact that I don’t want to give up my lifeline; I don’t think Angry Birds provides any form of education.
Are there learning games for children available on the iPhone? I accept that our kids are growing up in a different world then we did. I know I can’t shield my little ones from learning how to use and appreciate technology. I just hope I can find applications that will enrich their lives in some little way.
I pretty much only have Words With Friends. What apps do you suggest I download?
