It’s no secret that my month of July has been a bit crazy. All in one month, I have been in 5 states, visited my sister and attended the EVO12 conference. A conference for Women in Social Media……..although men also go.
Windows Pin to Start
The Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone saved me more than once! It helped me in Zion and it helped me at EVO! I was reminded by another blogger (Whitney from Rookie Moms) who was also reviewing the new Windows Phone, that you can “pin” tiles to your home page and I should just pin the EVO conference schedule for easy access instead of digging for my schedule booklet. I could have kissed her right there! (Pin to Start is a feature found on Windows Phones)
While at EVO12, I had the pleasure of attending Dennis’ SEO class again….Every blogger has a crush on Dennis. In a good way. He’s not only our SEO guru, but he gets us blogger girls. He hangs out with us, he takes photos of us (he’s an amazing photographer), he tells us stories about his family………most of all, he shares his knowledge with us. To say we love him would be an understatement. Dennis was impressed with my new Windows Phone and I told him how much I loved it as I pretended to kiss it. He loved the light it shined on my face………. Right there, we decided to do a mini photo shoot while we finished drinking our chocolate martini’s. (that’s chocolate on the corner of my mouth) Thank you Dennis……that was fun!
Windows Phone Apps
Another great app I’m loving while traveling this summer is the Starbucks Finder app! Let’s just say there are very few in the State of Utah. I was able to keep myself caffeinated on my 13 hour drive home, learning the location of every drive thru Starbucks between Salt Lake and Portland.
I also just used it in Seattle for kicks……It showed me 6 Starbucks all withing .1 miles of my location. Now that’s heaven right there! Where else can you stand on the street and actually SEE 2 Starbucks to choose from! (if you’re in Seattle, you probably don’t need this app……..just sayin.)
How do you use your smart phone for traveling? Leave me a comment below and I bet if I show them what great readers I have, I’ll be able to twist their arm into letting me give one of these babies away in an upcoming post! It’s a very cool phone……everyone should have one! (this post is not a giveaway)
Disclosure: This is pt.2 of 3 for the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone review campaign. Yes, I’m being compensated, no they don’t tell me what to say. It’s all my opinion as usual.
