How do you get the most out of your i-Phone? Do you use it primarily as an mp3 player? Do you use the camera most, maps, the internet, email? Everyone has their vise and use for their phone, including me. I am just going to share a few things that I use my phone for that make my life a bit more effective and productive.

The main thing I use my phone for is staying connected with others. I use mail often. Now I don’t have push notifications on cause the battery is bad to begin with, but I do check for new mail pretty often. It helps me to communicate with people on an ongoing basis so that I don’t get to behind. I also use Echofon a ton to keep up on Twitter streams that are coming in. It helps me see what my friends are up to and helps me communicate random and sometimes meaningful things as they occur. For those people whom I follow closely on Twitter, like @larsrood, I have it set to go straight to text so that I don’t miss anything he posts about his fun to follow life.

the other thing that I use my phone for, which I love and would pay for if it were the only thing I use is a small thing called Alarm. I have alarms set throughout the day to help me function. I am a man of passion who easily forgets. Here are the alarms that I have set:

6:01- Get up, 9:11- Check Facebook to see who’s birthday it is, 10:00- Prayer of thanks, 1:45- Pray for justice, 3:45- Pray for Amy and I and our marriage.

I found that when I don’t set alarms I go throughout my day and forget. I forget to pray, forget about others, forget about Justice. I am thankful for when these alarms go off as it causes me to stop and remember. Remember that the world does not just revolve around me, but I am in the world to help it become a better place for me, my family and others.

    Related to your blog, one of the things I like the most about my iPhone (ok, iPod touch, but it’s the same thing, just without the “Phone”, this app is available for iPhone too) is that I have a Bible downloaded on there. I’m a techno-geek, so I *always* have my iPod on me, I’m never without it. Which means, I always have a Bible with me too – I don’t think too many people carry around a print Bible with them everywhere because it’s too inconvenient. I can also highlight passages (and un-highlight – looking at my print Bible, I wonder why it was that I highlighted a particular verse 20 years ago) and make notes on particular verses as well, like my print Bible. But I like the handiness of it. I don’t know if you have a Bible on your iPhone, the one I use is from Mantis Bible Co., comes free with a KJV and a couple of reading plans, you have to pay for others (I paid for an NIV and am happy I did), and you can also buy Bible commentaries, other versions and languages, even for a voice to read the Bible to you. I think you’re a techo guy as well, check it out!
