Technologically Challenged with ADD ADHD
I’m technologically challenged. That’s just part of my ADD ADHD. But I’m finding some apps very helpful. Of course, the iPhone is both a gift and a challenge. It pretty well solves the problem of impatience and boredom while waiting, but it can be frustrating at times.
My favorite apps:
iPhone alarm clock – can be set to ring one time, or every day at a certain time (to remind me to take my Daytrana patch off).
Brainscape– love it! Can download quizzes on many different topics. Right now I’m focusing on Spanish irregular verbs past tense. Can scale it back to only ask five questions at a time, limit of my attention span.
Note – That’s the name of it. Thanks to my wonderful cousin Martha-lets me dictate a note and then it retains it on the phone in text.
Dragon Speak – You dictate into the mike and it prints the text on your computer document. I use the free version. Takes a while to set up and learn your vocabulary and can be frustrating at times, but much easier than typing when I have a lot to input. I used it for this.
I also like the calculator, weather, camera, Google, Guitar Chords, Fretboard and Guitar NAV (to learn the guitar fretboard), Epocrates, 3-D Brain, Star Walk, and Virtuoso Piano.
Unfortunately, I also like the poker and chess games, but so far I’ve been able to keep control of them.
Quote O the Day:
— that moment when you look in the mirror and say,”Oh, no, that can’t be right!”
