While the popular belief that a dog was man’s best friend was true some years back, smartphones and tablets are slowly claiming this spot as they are turning out to be our closest and most useful devices.
With over 56% of American adults owning at least one smartphone, this device has proved to be the major game changer for our century. Though smartphones are basically cellular devices that allow easier communication between people, they have earned a new status after proving that they can handle much more than making calls and sending texts.

Just recently, T-Mobile rolled out a new service that combines your prepaid visa with a smartphone app so as to create an alternate banking service. If you’re the kind that loathes the long queues in the banking halls, it would be easy to acknowledge that smartphones have really had their way in making life easier for all of us.
Keeps Us Updated
Yes, it is true that a good number of smartphone owners would prefer to keep in touch with friends via social media apps. However, let’s not forget that smartphones are also a great way of keeping updated with current trends. The weather app, for instance, has given many people insight on what to wear and how to plan their days hours ahead. Besides this, they also provide informative news about anything that you would like to keep tabs on. Android’s Play Newsstand is one such app.
Organizes Your Days
If you’re the kind of person that sticks to timetables for you to have a fruitful day, a smartphone would instantly be your next best friend. Smartphones can literally open all kinds of basic document formats that your PC can view. Whether DOCX, PDF, or even XLS, your smartphone can allow you to be more productive as you’re on the go. Existence of diary apps that synchronize your activities with an online account also play a big role in managing your days better.
Smartphones For Business Purposes
Perhaps not so many people are aware of the extent to which their phones can be of great use in a business environment. One common problem that arose with the prevalence of fax machines and the internet was that of signing of documents. However, esignature software has made this issue a thing of the past as nowadays signatures can be crafted all at the palm of your hands and with some help from your smartphone.
All in all, a smartphone can’t entirely replace all the other tech gadgets that make life easier for us like the washing machine, but they surely lift off a lot of work from our chests when it comes to organization.
