Default Re: Besides usual, what do you use the most on your phone?

Seems funny, all those million cool apps out there and no one really uses them. Most just use the 'usual' and a map function.

I lol cause most my high tech phone buddies have to recharge their phone during the day due to crap battery life. If they let it sit there not using it or messing with it, then it will last the whole day. Battery life seems to be a problem for many.

The iPhone 4's primary selling feature currently is the battery life. It easily lasts a day and a half with the usage I typically put into it. Games will kill the battery life, especially something like Angry Birds.

Calculator, dictionary, web browser, movie player, music player, memos, calendar, google maps, rss reader, facebook etc.. I rarely if ever use my pc anymore(except for modifying the content on my phone). Don't get how people can live without a smartphone these days.

I've played on only a handful of courses that do. Typically country clubs and higher priced courses have them (more than $75/round). Even then, they don't track stats or give course layouts. I tend to stick to the $40-$50 courses... i try not to spend too too much on golf.

As a guy with a brain tumor who spends plenty of time in hospital I would be lost without the Scrabble app.
