Hate having your calendar at home? Do your iPod, phone, GPS unit, and other electronics all pile around, mixing up chargers, etc?
This guide will show you how to ultimately decrease your hassles with electronics and organization into just one or two simple device's. Read along and when you get your life set up with an android, your jaw will drop when you realize the things it can do for you.
1-Create a Google account. Google accounts hold all of your precious data and plans, using none of your hard drive. With a Google account, you will have not only your email, but included is your calendar/appointments/tasks, Google documents(holds all your word/excel/power-point and more) Google My Tracks will let you save maps and routes, such as the directions to the "insert location here". This will make all of your precious data under one safe username and password, and it will be accessible from any computer with internet access. After doing this step, you are free to throw away your needs for a paper calender! That thing was getting big and messy anyway.
2-So, that's all nice, but it is only usable via computer! Buy an Android cell phone. Whether you are on Verizon, T-mobile, or sprint, there's an android phone out there. With an android phone, you will be able to conveniently fully sync with your Google account, meaning your calender is on your screen, and it's even better than paper. You can set a ringer for an appointment so you know when to go to it, make a repeated appointment(work, school, sports, and scheduled event) and much more. You E-mail account will be on your phone, with you at all times, so you're always updated. Your android will be your new newspaper, alarm clock, GPS, maps, web browser, iPod, facebooker, myspace account, Twitter, photo album (toss away those big binders), weather informer, video game console, telephone, and much more to come!
3-So you just dropped 10 different units off your back, along with their chargers, and different hassles. They have all formed into a little device in your pocket, at your side at all times. You will find your life much more simple, with everything falling into your android.
4-Do some more research on Google's applications like Google goggles, Google My Tracks, and more. There is so much to be found!
