Tech-savvy mover-and-shaker on the go? With an aversion to standing still, but also an addiction to email that borders on the pathological? (Because actually stopping to send off an e-mail from your cell phone is so last century.)
Fine, have it your way. Go ahead and walk around with your head up your? um, handset. But if you?re going to do that, at least pay attention while you?re crossing the street.
While you might think that would require looking up from your phone's screen, I?m here to tell you that it's not so. (Actually, CNET's the one with the tip.) Email n' Walk uses your phone's camera as a street viewer and sets the dynamic, moving image in the background as you write an email. This means you can actually wee where you?re going while composing a message.
Once you've finished writing an email inside the app, just hit ?Send? to launch the standard Mail app. There, you can pick the recipient and then actually send the message.
Cool concept. And according to all accounts, it actually works. The only thing that would make this even better is an added SMS feature. But regardless, it might not be wise to test this out while crossing the street. Maybe happy hour would be better. Imagine being able to slyly scope out the hotness at the next table under the cover of email. Now that would be cool.
Email 'n Walk is free (for now ? the iTunes page says, ?for a limited time?). I've got mine. Get yours here.
