Not if it's a flip phone.
I actually USE a lot of apps.
One of the apps I rely on the most is a handy codec guide for optimizing video for upload to YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

Another is a handy FTP directory with instructions on how to log on to trusted FTP sites. You have to get the logon and passwords from the owners but once you enter them they're all stored in one place.

Another is a ham radio programming widget that will program most modern handy-talkies for you so you don't have to manually enter 250 different frequencies.

Another is a built in spot lightmeter...no not nearly as good as a real light meter but for Mister Magoo, it's good enough.

Another fave is Keeper, which stores every password you will ever need. You can even extend Keeper to your browser!

There's a list of maybe 25 more but I'll spare you.
My non-pro fave is the built in TV/cable remote, which is a lifesaver if you can't find your remote in the middle of the night because your dog wanted to bury it in their bed across the room without letting you know.

I was actually kind of hopeful that SOMEONE would come out with a smartphone that had an HDMI INPUT so that you could feed it with whatever comes out of a modern camera, thus allowing you to use your phone as a portable livestreaming device but also allowing you to feed it with quality from a real camera.

Alas, looks like that's never going to happen! frown
Probably because there's already a ton of standalone portable livestream devices, but I just thought it would be nifty to combine it in a smartphone instead of lugging around another box.

Thanks for the notes of sympathy, guys. Mom was 91, nonambulatory, and just plumb wore out. It was time to go. Glad it was peaceful with lots of help from Hospice. Now comes the interesting part, like moving all her stuff out of her assisted living apartment when the place is locked down. Fortunately, I do have a big storage locker a couple of miles away.

Sorry man, right behind you I'm afraid. Tough to lose a mom.

My Mom made it to 92, and the first 90 years were jolly well okay.
After that came the broken hip and a lot of painful medical stuff that gradually wore her down and fried her brain. The slide was fast, and yet she held on for another year and a half.
Then one day her doctor informed her she needed another round of scary tests and procedures and she just flatly said "NO"...enough, basta.

DOCTOR: "Well, Mrs. Haas, if you don't do this, you're probably going to die."

Mrs. Haas: "Well, that's not a very nice thing to say but at least I will go with my head held high."

And that's pretty much what she did about six months later.
She had a wonderful life but she is missed terribly, as I am sure yours is, too.
Blessings on your whole family.

My shelter in place:


Day 1 – I Can Do This!! Got enough food and wine to last a month!
Day 2 – Opening my 8th bottle of Wine. I fear wine supplies might not last!
Day 3 – Strawberries: Some have 210 seeds, some have 235 seeds. Who Knew??
Day 4 – 8:00pm. Removed my Day Pajamas and put on my Night Pajamas.
Day 5 – Today, I tried to make Hand Sanitizer. It came out as Jello Shots!!
Day 6 – I get to take the Garbage out. I’m so excited, I can’t decide what to wear.
Day 7 – Laughing way too much at my own jokes!!
Day 8 – Went to a new restaurant called “The Kitchen”. You have to gather all the ingredients and make your own meal. I have No clue how this place is still in business.
Day 9 – I put liquor bottles in every room. Tonight, I’m getting all dressed up and going Bar hopping.
Day 10 – Struck up a conversation with a Spider today. Seems nice. He’s a Web Designer.
Day 11 – Isolation is hard. I swear my fridge just said, “What the hell do you want now?”
Day 12 – I realized why dogs get so excited about something moving outside, going for walks or car rides. I think I just barked at a squirrel.
Day 13 – If you keep a glass of wine in each hand, you can’t accidentally touch your face.
Day 14 – Anybody else feel like they’ve cooked dinner about 50 times this month?

I am going to omit a story too ticklish to tell, on account of the Vegas rule, but I am no longer at the other board.
