The user manual which came with my phone was paper thin (ie, barely any useful information), and I didn’t really have the time to figure out all the functions anyway. So I just used my phone to send smses, make calls, take photos and surf the net while on long boring train rides. Once in a while, I’d also use Google Maps to check my bearings while travelling somewhere. But that was about it.
Until late this morning, when I finally added one of my Gmail accounts to my phone, and was finally able to start downloading apps from Android Market. (I find their little robot inexplicably adorable!)
One of them was Skitch, which allows users to make simple drawings or add simple annotations to images. I drew this apple using Skitch! Only thing is, I can’t save images to my phone, and can only share them using various programmes including email. So I have to save them in my Gmail account before I can upload them to my blog.
I also downloaded Pixlr-o-matic, which you can use to ‘add retro effects to your photos in a snap’! Made a nice new wallpaper (at the top of this entry), which goes perfectly with the black front of my phone (its back is white)!
And so – unleashing the full power of my smartphone, one step at a time!!!
NB First time using left and right alignment for my blog images!
