A couple of items:
(1) I have been using screen protectors on my smartphones since I got my old TyTn II. Back then, it was absolutely necessary as the screens would scratch really easily. It seems like the screens have gotten a lot better with more scratch resistence. Should I dispense with the screen protector? As screens have gotten larger, it’s become more difficult to get one of those on there with any dust (which creates permanent bubbles). On the other hand, when I thought I could finally go without a protective case, I ended up with a smartphone with a cracked screen.
So do any of y’all use screen protectors? If not, has scratching been a problem for you at all? For reference sake, what kind of phone do you not use a screen protector on?
(2) I will be doing a series of post on Android Apps, most likely to appear on weekends. Basically it will be along the lines of “I want a [fill-in-the-blank] music app. Which one should I get?” answered with what I consider to be the best option. When looking for a software to perform a particular function, I have a tendency to download a dozen or so and then start eliminating them one by one until I have the ones that are worth using.
On the whole, it’s been very helpful to know several good programs because when the OS updates or I change phones, what used to work great yesterday won’t work as well anymore, and then I’ll go to one of the others and find that some limitation that made me not like it has been addressed. It also lends itself to this sort of post, since I tend to have familiarity with a number of products.
I already have planned one on navigation apps (online, offline, and premium), music apps, video apps. Do you have any requests?
