Rubia Arfeen, a senior in Biological Sciences and a Libraries employee, will be blogging about her experience with the Apple Watch–a technology new to the NCSU Libraries lending pool.
I have a new found appreciation for the music app on the watch. When you are a lazy person (like me), and leave things to last minute (again me), it is amazing what technology can do for you. The iPhone 6 was sitting across the table, and since I had already sat down and started on my hw, I was not about to get up to turn on my music. Lo and behold–there’s an app for that! I will admit I had to turn the shuffle on manually, but after that the watch did all of the work. When my iTunes started playing U2’s Iris–and I have no idea how that song got on my phone–it was easily skipped by pulling up the shortcut to the music app and replaced with Bad Blood by TS. Overall, for the procrastinating and lazy student, the watch is super helpful.
Lastly, I cannot emphasize how great the camera app is! It does take a minute to get used to, but look at this shot of the library. I also took a pic and (failed) selfie with a fellow coworker.
