Last year when I started the Slice of Life Challenge, I didn't have my iPhone yet. I got it near the end of March last year. I had no idea what the device would be able to do for me. Now, I would be hard pressed to go without it. This tool for learning and living has brought so much convience to my life it almost seems unreal. My constant compliments of the phone convinced my older brother to rethink his objection to the apple products and leave the android market.
Our newest learning with the tool is how we are now using it to text message. We talk into the microphone icon and then it types out the text for you. Not trying to be lazy in typing here as I am a very proficient typer, but using it for quickness. It seems like it can save about 30-40 seconds by just saying what you want instead of typing.
I have decided to take it to the next level and use it for the comments on the slices I am reading as well. I just say what I would say as if I am talking to the slicer after tapping the microphone tool, click done and it types out my response. Just another way to save time so I am able to read as many slices as possible as they are just juicy goodness!
If you haven't tried using the microphone for talk to text yet, I highly recommend it. Maybe other smart phones have this too (I am just a 1 year old newby with this tool). Maybe there are other ways to accomplish the same thing. I am just glad I no longer have to sit in front of my computer in an office to do the reading, writing and posting for this year's Slice of Life. Your slices can inspire me anywhere now!
