I work for a large Chemical company. Since the early 90's, we have been a Windows using company. We've "Partnered" with Microsoft and, in a nutshell, only use Windows products. Yes, there are some exceptions, but basically if it is made by or approved by Microsoft, I have access to it. Otherwise, fill out the form of what it is, and why you need it, and we'll start a testing process, and get back to you in about six months. Actually, I was shocked about a year ago when I got a note explaining that the company had decided to allow us to install the Chrome browser on our work machines. I was so happy that day. But I've learned that as much as I love Chrome, it just doesn't work in SharePoint. And this is a Microsoft product that I live in about 7 hours per day!
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. And plus can also launch Google Maps so that you can navigate to their location. Below is a short video showing how to set it up to ensure you only share what you want to when it comes to your whereabouts.
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.
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.
