Trick: Using the iPhone camera – to remember where you parked. And more.
This happens to me all the time. I’m at the SFO airport to pick/drop off someone and I park my car in their multi-story garage. Invariably, I forget where I parked. I could write it down, or try to use a mnemonic to remember, but they are not as efficient as using my iPhone camera.
So, that is the trick: Take an image of the parking lot code. Take’s barely a nanosecond. Saves hajaar time and embarrassment later.
Bonus trick: I use my iPhone for pretty much remembering everything nowadays. Some examples:
1. No time to copy down stuff after working on a white-board. Take an image.
2. Made a todo list on some scrap or a recipe for my cell culture. Afraid I might lose it? Iphone it.
4. And occasionally take a celebrity pic at an airport (Salman Khan at SFO).
Do you have any creative ways in which you use your iPhone camera?
