There are times when speed is essential – especially when you are on the go. When we were on vacation in Boston last summer we were constantly using our phones to decide where to eat. I suppose we could have our itinerary all planned out, but we didn’t. So when the family got hungry we loved the convenience of being able to quickly pull up a map, figure out what restaurants were near, and quickly browse reviews. My teenage daughters are picky eaters, so this cut way down on complaints, because we were able to eliminate restaurants that wouldn’t work for them quickly, without going to the restaurant and asking to see a menu!Weather is another big thing that I like to know quickly, because around here the weather can change fast. In the winter we get lake effect snow bands, which means it can be clear at our house and a blizzard 5 miles away. So I always want to have access to the latest weather on my phone, preferably with a radar picture!
If you are looking for speed check out the new MSN experience, which is available on Windows 8 devices and on iOS and Android mobile devices. The new faster MSN was recently updated and optimized for your Android 2.3 or later device. You can get news, sports, entertainment and links to social media sites all right on the home page.
So why do you need speed when you are on the go? Are you checking the weather, finding the nearest restroom, or just obsessively checking twitter and Facebook? Let me know when you need to get in the know!
