My wonderful, amazing dear hubby got my a smart phone for Dia dos Namorados. This beauty is to replace the previous cell phone that was duly given tribute here. I had always told him that I didn't want an IPhone or a fancy schmancy phone, because I have a tendency to be a little rough on things. And the idea of investing in a small, breakable electronic that I carry all over the place felt like, well.... a risk. But my husband loves me, and decided it was time for me to grow technologically.
And I'm surprised at just how happy it makes me. I never really understood what a "smart" phone was, and I'm not going to explain it here. But it's so nice to be able to have instant access to so much information. I'm having a lot of fun playing with it.
And dear readers, I'm asking for your help. What apps do you find helpful? I just found out about Whatsapp, and I know I can get Skype and probably some language apps. But any suggestions? Recommendations?
What I'd REALLY love is the ability to be able to text my sister in Africa (she doesn't have a Smart Phone), and to be able to call a land line in the US, or receive phone calls from the states (for free of course). I do have a Google Voice number, but I think since I'm outside of the US I can't use it to receive phone calls on my phone.
