Never did I realize how useful a GPS tracker is a smart phone. It’s amazing, how you can zero in on the exact location of your relatives or friends and track them exactly where they are.

An interesting thing happened today. One of my relatives came to my place and she had a return journey today evening. She being new to the city, we activated the Tracker in our mobile phones. Ideally, it takes, 1 hour from my place to the railway station in the worst case scenario and so accordingly, we booked the cab. While she boarded the Cab and started, just after minutes, she realized she left her mobile phone and returned back which took 10 mins. It was already 7.00 pm and her train was at 8.20 pm. Now the driver said that it takes one and a half hour from here, which made the situation even worse. She was tensed and so was I. Anyways as soon as she boarded the cab again, I started tracking her every minute. I was at my wits’ end, because, I suggested her to go late as, it hardly takes an hour.

Now she was even more tensed and worried, because, she was alone and on top of that she didn’t know the routes. I kept updating her with the route based on her location and told her how much more time is left. But Till the time you reach there you are worried and that too when you are travelling alone. Every minute, the Tracking was as accurate as it could be and was showing the exact location. Finally she reached there on top and we could track the exact location.

It is amazing, how where ever you go, the surrounding towers catches the signal of your cell phone and provides the information to the cell phone which tracks your phone and gives them the location details.

Well, it was a blessing in disguise for us. We could track the person and could also assess the route and how far a person is to the destination. I must say, the cell phone location tracker is an app which everyone should download and use it.  At the same time, your cell phone tracker also has an alert system, where, if you feel you are trapped or lost, you can send an alert and it reaches to the person who is tracking you continuously. Well, a great app and very useful device. The smart phones has really made your life easy.

There are N numbers of benefits of using a Smartphone and there are innumerable apps which are useful. I guess, people have become totally dependent on smart phones these days. Wonder, in no time, smart phones, will take over the place of your laptops or computers.

To write about technology is an epic. With the emergence of smart phones, people have become too engaged in exploring the apps. And every other day an advanced version of smart phones are released, with advanced operating systems like jelly bean, ice-cream sandwich and many more yet to come. The apps are exemplary. You just can’t imagine how much I am addicted to it. My life revolves around this phone now. I have installed close 15 apps already.  At a peak I may reach a point of 30 apps in no time. The other day I was going through my phone to check, if I can uninstall some Apps. But to my surprise, I realized how important every app is to me and how I can’t do without them. On my home screen I have all the frequently used apps, like twitter, face book, whats App, play store and a few games. Theses apps are something which I peak into everyday. Apart from these, the major once are:

Maps: I am so very addicted to this app, that even if I know the route, I bank on this app. To explore an alternative route, I guess this is a very helpful app, because, if you are lost somewhere, you can easily find a way out. Also it has helped me in delving different routes and flinch my time to half.

GPS tracker: This is similar to Maps, but quite helpful to track where you are. I have synchronized my GPS tracker app with my family members, so wherever they go, I will be informed via message and vice- versa. This is not to spy someone, but it helps in many ways, if you think you are in danger, you can send an alert form GPS tracker app.

Swift Key: This is quite faster than the original Samsung keyboard. It helps in typing the message fast with just swiping the fingers on the letters you want to type.

Games: As already mentioned, my games are all in the front page. And I am so addicted to it that, at my free times, I am busy playing these games.

Whats App: This is a cross platform mobile messaging app, which is free of course, so one can use this unlimited. I converse with all my friends through this. Instead of calling, it’s easy for me to use whats App with the swift key to type fast and share everything.

Ever note: This helps keeping a note on the items like your travel list, your grocery list. This is an all in one app where you can put together everything at one place, like your notes, documents, images and web. I can even write my articles in this when I am outside and it will sync to my computer and other devices I use. When you are outside, you might want to take pictures and write something about it and you can’t wait to go home and write. Ever note helps in writing your ideas out.

SO these are the primary once I found out that I can’t live without. As I said I have to dabble with others to see how unimportant they are, but for me all are equally important and I can’t do without them.
