I downloaded two Things for this Thing, iHome Sleep and Wi-Fi Finder. (I have a different QR scanner that I use, and while I already have the Google Search app, I rarely use it.)
This, I think, I will keep. I have an iHome stereo thingy, so I might even create an account with them and download the app on my phone so I can try using that for my alarm. It works with my device’s alarm, and it keeps track of when I go to bed and get up, and is generally ok. Basically it has one of my favorite features of FitBit without requiring me to buy a new FitBit. So that’s a win. Plus, if I use my phone with the stereo, it will make sure my phone is charged every morning. Double win.
This I will probably keep, but I will be wary of it. Why am I wary? Well, it’s telling me that there’s free wi-fi at the Barnes & Noble at Brookdale Center. The only problem is that that Barnes & Noble closed in June of 2009, and Brookdale Center was demolished in the summer of 2011. And is now a Wal-Mart. So, yeah. It also tells me that a coffee shop not too far from my house has free wi-fi…but it’s using the name of the coffee shop that was there three and a half years ago, and is since a different coffee shop. You see why I hesitate? But in a pinch, in a place I’m not familiar with, it could be handy.
