Amazing Apps 2015-05-14 14:22:17
How many kinds of Apps do you use? How much time do you work on smart phones or tablet computers? What are your opinions about Apps? I have used Apps for a few years. After attend the class of “Trend and Application of IT—Introduction of Clouding Computing and Smart Widget“ (科技趨勢與運用—雲端服務應用及智慧型裝置介紹)in last November, I am really enriched by the course to smartly use Apps.

Professor Andy Chen introduced many kinds of useful software, including several hot Apps. Some of them are brand new to me. Some of them are more powerful than those I was using. For example, Evernote, Jorte, 生活行 etc. Moreover, he introduced some skills of privacy protection. At last, through a moving short film, he reminded us not to addict in Apps or surf on the Internet all day long. To company with our family and friends face to face is the most important and precious moment in our life. To hear the voices of our family and friends is also delightful.

Professor Andy Chen has a nice and patient personality. He has great enthusiasm on teaching also. He had installed more than ten base stations in the classroom before class in the early morning. The teaching material he arranged is very interesting and practical. I do hope I can have chance to learn more in advanced class in the future.

We, users, can enjoy clouding computing services very easily because clouding computing have five basic characteristics, i.e. on-demand self-service, broad network access, resource pooling, rapid elasticity, and measured service. Satisfaction comes from technology, entertainment and design as well as reducing IT professional knowledge of users.

You might ask about the benefits of Apps to me. The answer is quite positive. Actually I rely on them in my daily live.There are some good experiences I can share:

First of all, multi-function: For example, T Express (an app by Taiwan High Speed Rail) allowed me to buy tickets and distribute them to fellow’s smart phone so that we will have seats nearby. Furthermore, we don’t have waste time to take, to keep those tickets, and we can pass the gate very fast. It’s really to save time and energy. T Express can also remind us to be on time to take THSR. Moreover, some of Apps are very interesting. We can have fun to play games, listen to music so as to relax and take a rest. We can take down notes, pictures and save them in Evernote whenever we are touched. Evernote just like an abundant dairy combined with characters and photos. All we need is only a tablet computer or a smart phone along with these Apps. Aren’t they amazing and marvelous. Of course, I should remind you that don’t forget to keep your data synchronous with clouds while your tablet computer smart phone is repaired or replaced by a brand new one. Otherwise you may slip down and out of cry.

Secondary, tremendous: For instance, 生活行is one of the powerful Apps. We can use it to search information about medical care, dictionary, traffic, TV show, culture activities…etc. Such kind of Apps make our live colorful and wonderful. Besides, owing to my bad English, I wonder if I can finish this assay without a translation App. Those Apps are really tremendous and helpful.

Thirdly, flexibility: Seeking a parking lot in an old district of Tainan city really stumped me. Now I have got rid of the nightmare because I take Tainan City Bus to commute and go around. I used to go around by car more than thirty years. To be honest, it’s kind of challenge to give up this way out. How can I make it? Viva! We have Tainan city bus dynamics App. Owing to the big shadow of tree and the large advertise business sign, the bus driver may miss passengers. Account on App, we can make exaggerate waving just on time. Sometimes I can either take the bus to go home or navigate a fascinate trip. Once upon an afternoon of a sunny holiday, after browsing an impressive painting exhibition, I was on my way home. Somehow, I decided to walk home. According to the information provided by 生活行 and google map, I had a cup of tea in a warm and small café located in a peaceful, beautiful, winding and quite lane. Passing and piping a locked theater with curiosity, having my hair cut, what a surprise journey it was. Apps really enrich our life and create a result out of expectation. In the meantime, Evernote helped me to record those touch memory.

The fourth, environmental protection: For illustrations, we can take down appointments on Google calendar or Jorte. Not only because we won’t miss the appointment but also we can make new date without annoy. If the schedule has been changed, we just need to shift it to right time or delete it. It’s very convenient. Meanwhile, we may rescue many tree. Any way, we only have one earth. No mention about the side effect that we save money and time for ourselves also. Don’t you agree with me?

I would like to express my great thanks to Civil Service Development Institute, Tainan City Government. The great faculty arranged such a fabulous course and the stuff are working very hard so that I had the opportunity to learn more about Apps.

The last but not the least, I have some suggestions for Civil Service Development Institute, Tainan City Government and for App users.

1. For Civil Service Development Institute, Tainan City Government: In order to promote learning effect and efficiency of IT class, such as “Trend and Application of IT --Introduction of Cloud Computing and Smart Widget”, my suggestion is to down size the number of attendants . All of the attendants have to surf on the Internet, manipulate on widgets at the same time. In the moment, loading of network flow should be really heavy. On the other hand, the speed of network in Taiwan is not speeding after all.
2. For users: Don’t be a “family bow”. Apps are useful and powerful. Some of them are even fascinating and fantastic. But be careful; don’t hang around with apps though they are awesome. They can enlarge our life and also wipe off our precious time of sightseeing. Just as Professor Andy Chen said to the classmates: To get along with our family is the most precious moments in our life.

To wrap up, as a lady nearly sixty, I had experienced PE to Window, Coble and Fortran to Oracle, etc. Technology changes dramatically. I am really impressive and appreciated of various Apps. For the purpose of keeping up with the fast path, I am looking forward to learning more about them to enhance my knowledge and application ability of Apps. They are useful and helpful either for official affairs and personal daily life.
