Our mobiles are no longer devices simply created for making calls and sending text messages with just 140 characters. The phones we buy nowadays are versatile computing devices that connect us to the world and most of us can’t even imagine our daily life without them.
How can your mobile phone improve technology?
Mobile phones not only allow us to easily keep in touch with others – no matter what part of the world they are in – but also help us with carrying everyday tasks, such as paying bills or working outside of the office.
Smartphones offer us a variety of apps that can help us improve our life or at least make some things easier. In the app store, we can find anything from productivity tools and travel planners to lifestyle aids.
And here’s another thing about smartphones – they can easily be connected with other devices. In this article, we are discussing three specific apps that can help you with operating the technology that you already own.
Playstation Remote App
What if we told you that you can enjoy PlayStation gaming on your smartphone? A few years ago, Sony has released a Remote Play app available on Android devices and then followed-up in 2019 with the same release for the iOS system.
Thanks to this development, any PS4 or PS5 owner can connect their smartphone to the console via WiFi wherever they go. This means that a user is no longer tied to their TV and can access their games via their broadband network at any given time in any given place.
Thanks to the app on your phone, you can start playing on the console connected to a TV and then pause a game, and access it on your chosen device – which is perfect when you someone else wants to use the TV but you still want to try fighting that final boss in your favorite game. You can also switch PS directly on your mobile device without turning your TV on.
The app is available on any Android smartphone or tablet running Android 5.0 or higher system. It also works on iPhones and iPads with iOS 12.1 or higher. Moreover, you can also connect the console to any compatible PC or Mac. To use the app, you will also need an account for PlayStation Network and high-speed internet access. You should also check the compatibility of the game first.
Pax 3 App
The Pax 3 is an improved, versatile dry herb vaporizer that can be controlled by an app. This feature allows the user to customize the temperature and get the best vaporizing experience. This premium vaporizer grew in popularity thanks to this user-driven design and innovative technology.
The Pax 3 App is an upgrade that lets vaporizer admirers fully control their vaping experience. The user can also personalize the app by managing the vapor and flavour output and precisely controlling the temperature.
The Pax 3 app can be locked so that it is safe from unwanted use. The app can be set for automatic updates, which means the user doesn’t have to worry about keeping their device current.
Moreover, the app offers its users full session control in a way of Dynamic Modes. If you have the Pax 3 vaporizer and decide to download the app, you will be given a choice of 5 Dynamic Modes, including:
- Standard: user-activated temperature control
- Stealth: gives ultimate discretion
- Boost: keeps your vaporizer in high gear
- Flavour: focuses on the most delicious flavour possible
- Efficiency: doesn’t waste a single drop
This app works with Pax Era Pro, Pax Era, and Pax 3 – its option may slightly differ depending on the vaporizer you are using. It can be downloaded from Google Play and also connected via Desktop with Google Chrome. Due to Apple removing apps relating to vaporization, iOS users can only benefit from The Pax 3 App on desktop.
Nest Thermostat App
Your mobile can also help you with creating a smart, more connected home. With the Nest Thermostat App, you are able to take control of your home, even when you are not in. The app allows you to not only adjust the temperature and change settings but also to check your Energy History.
Nest has partnered with Google and brought their products together to help with creating a smart home that can be easily operated through mobile devices. Nest.com became a part of Google Store hence why the thermostat app can be found under Google Nest name.
So, what else can you do with the app? The Google Nest app allows you to control the Nest thermostat, arm, and disarm the Nest security system, check your home via Nest Cam and get an alert if Next Protect goes off.
This means that you can control your home and make sure it’s secure even when you are not near it. The Google Nest app is the easiest and most helpful way of taking 100% control of your household, whether you are sitting on your sofa or traveling on the bus.
The Thermostat option in the app programs itself to help you with saving energy. It also allows you to view and edit your schedule, change your temperature at any time, and show you how much energy you have been using. You can also set an alert for extreme temperature so that the app informs you if your home gets too cold.
We have only discussed 3 apps that can make your life easier and allow you to use your mobile device to enhance the technology you already have. Let’s not forget that both Google Store and App Store have thousands of apps available – so maybe next time you are investing in some new techy device, you should make sure it can be connected to your mobile. After all, if we have to possibility of controlling everything by a simple click, then why not use it?
