I had the original 2015 Windows Icon phone until about three months ago. Windows doesn’t offer many apps for their phone (odd, right?). The internet is a main feature so I never did much with it. I used the phone, and this will sound old school of me, as a phone. I called people. I also texted with my kids when they were too lazy to just come talk to me and used the camera all the time. The camera was actually the feature that sold me. It was the best on the market at the time. The phone died of course, because electronics never last forever. That’s how big ass corporations keep making money.

Anyway, since I’ve gotten the new phone I use Instagram on it. I love Instagram because I love looking at photos. I was completely unaware before then all the features Instagram offers because the app is limited on PC.

I will admit, a cellphone can be an amazing tool for a creative. An all in one as far as technology goes. I’ve thought about it many times but I feel concerned I would never put the damn thing down if I go that route.
