How Your Smartphone Will Get You a Better Night Sleep?

Posted by Cellular Chloe on May 9, 2013 2:04:00 PM

Are you getting enough sleep? Is it productive? I have 2 apps and a few optional plug-ins that will help you get that question answered. Maybe you already know the answer is "no" and perhaps you can learn some things about your sleep hygiene and find out how to improve your ability to get as much deep sleep as possible. Simply getting more sleep isn't always the answer.

For a total of $4.18 (obviously not including the device to run it on!), I have greatly improved my quality of sleep and I will show you how!
Sleep As Android FREE
Sleep as Android Unlock $2.89
Sleep Stats $1.29
Twilight FREE

One of Samsung's "Next Big Things" (Galaxy SIII) Gets Jelly Bean

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Dec 13, 2012 3:22:00 PM

For some reason I had myself thinking "the Next Best Thing that's Already Here" aka the Samsung Galaxy SIII already had Jelly Bean but alas it does not. It is still on Ice Cream Sandwich. So guess what, a device that I already thought was outstanding is going to get better. Trust me Jelly Bean is awesome! If it just included Google Now, I would be happy but the upgrade has much more than just that. It like Christmas morning is here already or will be Friday because that is when the update starts rolling out. A few Verizon devices already have Jelly Bean like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Droid RAZR HD family of 2.

Here is Verizon's release:

iOS v. Android v. WindowsPhone

So Many Phones, So Little Time. Which OS(Operating System) is Right for You?


If you are already due for an upgrade or expect to be relatively soon, I have 2 words for you. Good Luck.
There are so many phones out there and it's never going to slow down. Well, at least not before the end of the year. Starting today we are officially in the 4th quarter of the year and that means we'll be seeing even more before the holidays.
So what it all boils down to, unless you are a slave to your OS(Some people on iPhones will never switch no matter how great Android is) is what is the best OS for you? Two months ago I'd only be talking about Android and iOS but on October 26, WindowsPhone is making a comeback with Window 8 and they have some really sweet devices coming. Soon it may become a three-way battle if Windows8 is well received. It's a nice clean OS and I for one am looking forward to getting my hands on one. I am not including Blackberry because their Marketshare is very low. Here are a few fun iOS vs. Android cartoons. I never get sick of these!
 
   
If you are trying to pick a new smartphone, your best bet is to decide which OS is best for you.

iOS Apple iPhone

Pros
Fixed ecosystem-everything is intergrated so it's very easy to use, sync, backup etc.
Very intuitive Interface makes for a short learning curve.
All devices are running the same version.
Devices running on iOS are extremely stable. No freezing or locking up.

Cellular Chloe Turns Your Phone into a Bodyguard

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Apr 30, 2012 5:03:00 PM

There are dangers lurking behind every corner. Why here comes my boss around one now. Seriously, Kind of like those “see something, say something” commercials you see on TV, you need to be aware of your surroundings. Let’s be real for a second. There are times when you really don’t feel safe or especially when others find that you could be in danger walking to your car alone after work. Thankfully, smart phones can do more than just make phone calls and link you to your favorite social networking apps.
