Anyone have any good stories where your Droid came in extra handy in your day-to-day life?
I use it all the time at work. I LOVE google maps on my droid, especially since they show both state road numbers and road names. That's important to me for work. Used the pinpoint application a couple days ago to email a map and my coordinates for the helicopter who was enroute to assist us...
In addition, I use it to text other co-workers on shift so that we can coordinate things we don't want to speak over the radio. I've made a bunch of spreadsheets with important information on them such as court dates etc. I can use it to look for warrants and all kinds of stuff. Use easymoney 1.2.3 to balance my bank accounts... Used Flixter a few times looking for the best theater to go to...Use weatherbug all the time...Used the camera a few times for evidence pictures...use it as my alarm clock, to browse facebook, to check account balances with my bank...
oh yeah, and to make and receive phone calls
My 6 year old daughter and I were at her Dr.s office waiting for her to get her flu shots. I really did not want her touching all the toys in the waiting room and picking up all those germs. So, we went to the apps/games section on the droid and downloaded tic-tac-toe and wac-a-mole and passed the time playing Droid games. I was extremely grateful for my Droid...!
+1 Hands down the best Checkbook/Transaction register on the market. I love it.
had to copy my Driver's License for something and my fax wasn't working riht so I used the program scan2pdf and got it done that way. Just had to put license near bottom of shot because of intrusive watermark.
I've used the camera numerous times when I'm going to buy parts for something. I take a picture of the part I need and refer to it at the store. Keeps me from making multiple trips to buy and return things.
I have a 3 month old daughter who was being fussy while we were out somewhere. I quickly went to amazon music and downloaded a childrens lullaby album and put it next to her with the volume low. It calmed her down, which calmed me and my wife down. Win!
I was going to Game Stop last Sunday afternoon (Left 4 Dead II) and not sure if they were open....so I used the voice search - Said "game stop". Got the map and and phone number link. I pressed the link and the Droid dialed the number!!!! Better than calling 411!!!!
Now that's awesome... :icon_ banana:
just yesterday i got home and i lost my flashlight a week or so ago....i remembered my flashlight app. used it for me and the dog to get back up stairs. also i use the level app alot to hang stuff.
My wife and I share a Google doc called Shopping list. She adds whatever she wants me to buy and I check it when I leave from work.
I used the Android Light Sabre app to let my wife know I'm even more of a dork than she thought previously.
I have an 8 month old daughter and I put her to bed around 8. When i got bed around midnight I turn on my "color flashlight" and go in the room and make sure she is sleeping good. I use a dark blue light, so it does not affect her at all, but I get a clear view of my sleeping beauty
^^ i also have done this ^^
Phone, email, text.....
