Smart phone is my necessary tool

I bought a smart phone last December, and passed a half year. That is very useful tool for me more than I imagined. Most advantages are I can connect Internet anywhere, and I can use various of applications what I need.

I installed very useful these applications as follows,

Needless to explain about Skype. I mainly use it for Instant messaging. It's rare to use as telephone.

English Dictionary (Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English)
This is my favorite dictionary. I have a paper edition and CD edition. I got it for mobile phone edition at once.

Google Mobile App(English edition)
I am a Google fun. I also get Japanese edition, but English edition is more functionally. You can use Google services without browser.

I like Twitter. I can post and read messages anytime anywhere by this application.

The followings applications are pre-installed

Dictionary walker
English-Japanese and Japanese-English dictionaries. I can look up in the dictionary if I meet words I don't know.

I can check the train timetable and the directions, or I can find the best way or a shortcut to the destination.

Active Sync
I can synchronize mobile phone's organizer and Google Calendar or My contact. It's really useful.

My smart phone have two Internet web browser, IE and Opera. But I don't use thme so frequently. Because it is better to use the service oriented application.
