Before you shove that old iPhone up…

Shove it up into your JUNK DRAWER into an intimate corner of your JUNK DRAWER – please consider what future use it may be good for. While watching GOOD MORNING AMERICA this morning, Becky Worley explored the uses of our old iPhones as Apple prepares to unveil the iPhone6.

A new phone — it’s like Christmas! And your old phone? Yeah, you just put it in a drawer, never to be used again. Right? But hold on, this thing is still a really powerful device. Jennifer Jolly (USA Today) says don’t retire it – repurpose it.

Jennifer: Don’t ever throw that old phone away. There’s so much that you can do with it.

1. Start with NAVIGATION: The HUDAWAY App. It lets you download a roadmap from home and then it projects directions onto your windshield.

2. Next – Want to keep tabs on your home remotely? Well the iPhone still has wifi access and a pretty good camera..

Jennifer: So, you could  buy a $300 security camera or you could just use your old iPhone.

3. The PRESENCE App fires up when there’s motion and it sends you alerts, pictures and videos. Smart!

4. Beyond burglars what about keeping tabs on your baby? The CLOUD BABY MONITOR App runs off of any device with wifi and a camera including an iPhone or even an old tablet, and you monitor it from your new phone.

Jennifer: You can do things like record video, you can turn on music so that it plays a lullaby, you can talk to them.

Now think about the future, lots of new devices are coming out for a smart home that’s wifi connected. From music systems to temperature control to lighting — all of these are controlled by your phone.

What if you and your device are out of the house what do Grandma and the babysitter do? Well, goto the old phone. Remember your old iPhone has a huge hard drive. Great for permanent music stations, also keep in mind that you can find similar apps that do the same things on Android phones. So don’t put your old phone out to pasture put it to work.” [original broadcast – Today 9/17/14]

Good morning WordPress kin!  I’m at it again
considering replacing my 2nd iPhone friend.

I’ve long been an APPLE fan; product manufacturing was the best.
I own 5 iPhones, spanning a couple of generations; varying in depths.

I own an efficient iPhone 4 and reliable AT&T 4S.
Though all three of my 5S’s seem to rock capacity best.

Unfortunately as of late, iPhone has been falling off and I’ve got fears,
because I’ve only had this last 5S for less than two years.

17-months, to be exact, and it’s already falling apart,
Siri loses her way in GPS regardless my charting the start.

The operating system is moving terribly slow and my recent call list is inaccurate.
Though I do have a nice case and microfiber towel, that makes it look immaculate.

Just like the other iPhone 4’s that were replaced by my (dimming) iPhone 5’s,
I am being hooked by Galaxy’s look: their smooth operating system & design.

I don’t think an iPhone 6 will make it into my household, this time,
thus I’m excited about it’s future uses grind.

Not sure about the Samsung Galaxy either, I’m merely on the browse,
I’m Qui
Before you shove that old iPhone away, consider PRESENCE, HUDAWAY, or CLOUD.
