When i got my first smartphone, an iPhone 3G, I was amazed that I could go on the internet wherever I was and that I could use it as an iPod. As a child of the Sony Walkman era, having my music on the go was important to me (although playlists were called mix tapes in those days, but that’s another story!)

Those were the only two things I remember using my iPhone 3G for (in addition to making actual phone calls).

Nowadays my iPhone does everything. Storage has become cheap and hardware & software performance now outstrips all but a specialist alternative item in any category.

Health & Sports, Writing, Photography, Video Recording, TV & Movies, Navigation, Games, Research. There’s very little it can’t do.

And generally speaking, it's very good at them all. A tool for many uses. I literally can’t imagine how I did without it.

Like the 83 functioned Swiss Champ XAVT with a tool for almost everything, I find myself saying to most problems:

“Oh, there’s an app for that”
