The smartphone and its real uses

If I have to imagine that I am preparing myself for a trip I know that I will have to bring with me for sure my smartphone. Too many people think that the cell phone made us slaves of the technology, but in the following paragraphs I will explain why I think it is so important.

First, when you leave your country for a new place you don’t know the cities that you will see. The smartphone can help you providing information about the cities. Not only you can have a better idea of the history of the city you are in that moment, but it can also provide you the possible attraction that you can see included with hours and prices.

Second, Google maps offers the scheduling of the different public transportation and the way to reach a certain destination. Imagine that you have found a church that you are really interested in. Adding you address and the church’s address, Google provides you with buses schedule, or if you are driving a car it tells you the fastest route.

Third, if I have to leave for a year I would like to be able to reach my family and talk to them. Also having a smartphone would make taking pictures way easier.

In summary, having a smartphone means having a tour guide, a map and a camera all in one. This is the reason why I think it will be a must have item.
