I love my smartphone. I rarely use it for actual voice-to-voice communication, but it sure comes in handy for all kinds of other things.
I have an application on my phone called MyTracks. When I walk, I can record my route and all kinds of other information about my trek. When I finish up, I can send myself (or friends) the details of the journey. Below is the walk route that my friend, Robin, and I took today:
