I had to watch a lot of tutorial videos to figure out how to use my new smartphone.
It utilizes a completely weird kind of operating idea than what I’m used to.
I went from using an iphone to using an android. Despite the reading curve, I am so blissful to finally be done with IOS. The operating idea restricts you in countless ways and is a serious headache if you own a Windows laptop instead of an peach tablet. I’m also done with using hardware dongles because a bunch of “genius” engineers thought it would be a “bold” statement to get rid of the headphone jack. Not to mention, the cameras on some of these new android iPhones rival those of their competitors. They’re great iPhones all around, even if you don’t get access to every single app in the IOS store. The most recent app I downloaded allows me to control my heating and cooling idea at lake condo with my smartphone, somewhere I have a data connection. Not only can I turn the idea on and off and control the temperature setting, the application also gives me USge data, outdoor temperatures, length of cooling cycles, tips on decreasing energy efficiency based on my own USge, and much more. It’s nice to monitor my air conditioner use while I’m away on holiday. It’s difficult to set it and forget it with an air conditioner in a tepid climate. If you turn it too high, the air conditioner won’t turn on enough to prevent the moisture level from climbing to levels where mold growth starts. But if you turn the air conditioner too low, you end up using a lot more electricity in the process, which costs more cash.
