I was cleaning out my Google Drive files and came across an app listing from 2012. I was amazed at how many apps that I no longer used, however, back then, I thought they were awesome.
I decided it was once again time to generate a list of all the apps I'm using on my phone. . . . And while several are residing on my phone, they are actually there to sync with my Android Wear Watch.
So without further adu, here is a list of the apps I am currently running.
In Google Plus, within the mobile app, is a "Locations" feature. If you share your location with others, they can see where you are at in almost real time.

If you are like myself, you usually start a trip in front of a PC or a Tablet. And once I figure out where I'm heading, I get in my car and do a similar search from my phone. Google had a great solution to this. I put a short video together to show you just how easy it is!
Of course the requirements should be obvious. You need to do this from a Chrome web browser and your Android Device should be using the same profile as your Chrome one is running.
There are all kinds of options out there to assist you in finding your phone should you miss-place it or have it stolen. But if you use Chrome and an Android device, it doesn't get much easier. This method will work from both Windows and Macs running the Chrome Web browser. The requirements are simple!
So now, if you've lost your phone, open Chrome, and Simply type "Find My Phone"
I've been following the news that some employees at Facebook suppressed conservative trending topics. This has gotten a lot of attention across all major media outlets. But what alarmed me, at least at first is when I learned that over 30% of folks depend on Facebook as the place they depend on to get daily news.
But then I realized that often, I use Twitter and it's trending topics list to see what is going on in the world on a daily basis. This got me curious so I decided to run a poll to see what my social media friends and followers use to get their daily news. The survey is mobile friendly.
How do you get your news
By day I try to keep a Chemical Company safe. But on my time, I seem to have an obsession with Technology. I've been following mobile advancements in Technology since the mid-90s. I've used Palm OS, Windows Mobile, iOS and Android devices. With this experience comes a lot of opinion. I offer those opinions here.
