? of the Day to Tara
You mentioned an interesting moment the other day while watching a commercial with your husband. What happened?
Don’t know what an “app” is? You’re not alone. A few days ago my husband and I were watching some TV and an iPhone commercial came on. It was talking about the iPhone having an “app” for this and that. I looked at my husband and just knew he wouldn’t know what an app was in that sense. I explained an app meant application and then went on to tell him that applications are little programs that can be downloaded on phones enhancing what the phone can do. Now my husband is a smart guy, a reporter for 15 plus years with an undergraduate degree from Penn State and a masters from Northwestern University. He is however, 5 years older than me and that much more removed from the digital revolution. He has made great strides in the last year helped along by the purchase of his own laptop. He is very comfortable with the Internet, his Nikon photo program and can navigate around iTunes like a pro. But having a basic cell phone provided by work, he hadn’t been introduced to applications in the phone sense. There has got to be a big group of people still out there that don’t know about this kind of stuff though I suspect that universe must be shrinking pretty fast. I only have a few phone applications right now myself. My Favorites: Facebook and Twitter.
What are some of your favorite applications?
