Essential iPhone Applications

Kristen Hewes - Hardware Technician

For this week's blog, I am looking at iPhone applications that I cannot do without.

Having just moved to MA from Texas in the last couple of months, the first one that comes to mind is Google maps! It may not be as fancy as some of the other turn-by-turn GPS apps, but for a free app, it does a great job of showing me where I need to go in and around Boston.

The second app would have to be YouTube.  When researching a problem on the go, the amount of issues people have made YouTube videos for is amazing - and they come in handy in a pinch.

I use the banking apps, the Weather Channel apps, and my Fios app all the time too.  It is remarkable how smart phones have changed the way we access data on the go.  With cell phone reception and ten minutes, you can usually find the answer to most common issues you have and keep yourself informed and up to date on changes in the industry.
