iPhones for the mobile lifestyle.

Unless you were like me up until about a year ago, I was without a cell phone. Don’t say it, I know, it’s nice to be a part of the 21st century. I’m sure there are the rare few out there and I commend you but I cannot picture myself without one nowadays. I thought to myself, why just get a phone, I want the best there is out there and I settled on the iPhone from Mac/Apple. It was by far the best purchase of 2008 for me, (the house comes in a close second.) It’s quite the tool and I personally think there is nothing else out there that can come close to matching it’s power and capabilities. There is one small qualm I have with it and is aimed more at the service provider AT&T. You see I live in Omaha, Nebraska, and we have a modest population of around 1 million if you count the surrounding burbs and whatnot. Well the problem is that I live in the heart of the city, midtown and at my home I get “No Service.” Ridiculous and I’ll save that for another time.

19194652I’m sure can already guess how a “smartphone” like an iPhone can help you on your next therapy or rehab assignment. Recently Mac released the 3rd generation iPhone 3G s complete with GPS, video, tethering and all sorts of other goodies, so many that I’d have to write another post about it. Again, we’ll save it for some other time. You see, having a phone like this in your pocket is so many things in one and you wouldn’t really need to bring your desktop or laptop computer wherever you go.

You can access your emails from many different accounts and have them all sync up in one place, or you can check out what all your friends and family are doing and saying on Facebook. You can map out the route to your next short-term contract assignment and follow along, send pictures of all the places you stop along the way and on and on and on. It seems there isn’t much the iPhone can’t do and a few of the other phones out there have the same capabilities but they just don’t hold the prestige of the iPhone, in my opinion. There are loads of applications (apps) you can load too. There is something for everyone, from games to medical information, it’s all there. Here’s a list of essential apps for the traveler and another of accessories for your iPhone essential to travel.

So you see, all you need is a phone and you’ll be well on your way to making the most out of your assignments and keeping in touch with the life you left behind at home. Good luck and happy travels to you all.

About the Author

Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I’ve been involved with Marketing and Advertising for the better part of a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she’s ever had. So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. Obviously, I landed the job at Medical Solutions, a travel physical therapy company and am now a Marketing Specialist who writes about travel physical therapy. This by far has been a major blessing to my life, I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time, as long as they’ll have me. Now that we’ve got the career timeline out of the way. Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I’ve been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn’t at least kick the ball around, I don’t know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts. Music, Visual arts, Film, Design; pretty much anything and everything arty. I’m happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager!

    Great article. The constant advancement in technology is why we actually made our product accessible to the iPad for documentation, making it easier than carrying the laptop.
