Video Games on Your Cell Phone?
We rely on our "smart phones" for just about everything these days.
Is there anything you don't turn to your phone for when in a predicament today-- or in search of entertainment? Everything from flight check-ins to finding a restaurant can be navigated from your handy-dandy smart phone.
Keeping your Diet on Track
The use of apps to keep dietary restrictions and calorie counts on track has become the norm today. Everyone has access to an app that tells them what's in the food their eating, and how many points it is towards their daily count-- especially those who follow Weight Watchers religiously.
With thanks to impressionable stars such as Jennifer Hudson, Weight Watchers is soaring with success for its weight-loss regimen with counting points. It's become easy as pie now with the additional resources-- including many which are accessible and easy to manage straight from your smart phone. In the words of the infamously fit mom, Maria Kang, "What's your excuse?" Just kidding! But really.
Hey Siri, can you find my destination?
Siri has become the North Star of the year. She directs everyone to their destinations so much that it's common to sit and wonder, "What was life like before Siri? Did people really use those things called 'maps,' to get places?"
The scary factor here is that if the world suddenly lost access to Siri and the likes of GPS systems, we would be so lost! How would anyone get anywhere?
Add gaming to the list
Gaming can be added to the list of things you can do from your smart phone, too. Nintendo's 3DS and Sony's PlayStation Vita are solely focused on gaming experiences that have yet to approach smart phones, but the top video game developers are quick to catch on to this growing trend.
Embracing Android and iOS as practically certified devices-turned-consoles, the future looks a lot like the mobile video game experience is about to be colossal. The first on the list is Samnsung's new Smartphoen GamePad-- a gamer's must-have for getting in a round or two while on the go, in between meetings, or stuck in traffic on the road-- IF and only if s/he is the co-pilot or passenger, of course! No gaming and driving.
