My wife and I have been talking about her making a career change, and that necessitates her going back to school. Back when I went to school, the smartphone wasn’t even invented, much less a tool for getting anything done. Today, AppStorm reviews apps all the time that are designed for helping out with homework and assignments, and that means that she could use her iPhone for school. Sounds great, right?

But what about you? If you go to school, do you use your iPhone for keeping track of your homework or anything else? Let us know in the poll to the right!

Spring Training is just winding down around my part of the U.S., but that just means that we’re that much closer to opening day. It used to be that I had to subscribe to specific TV channels to watch my favorite team play, but now I can just prop my iPhone or iPad up next to my desk and watch while I work. Turns out I use my iPhone to follow pretty much all the sports I watch, whether it’s just to catch up on the score or delve deeper into the system.

What about you? Do you use your iPhone to follow sports? Let us know in the poll to the right!

I’m in front of a computer during most of the day, with my iPhone to my left and my iPad to my right. When it comes to cruising my favorite social networks, I find myself using my computer for Facebook and Tumblr all the time, but rarely for Twitter. In that case, it’s all about the iPhone and iPad, and not much else. With my wife, she’ll only use Facebook on her iPhone, bar none.

What about you? Is your iPhone your main social media tool or do you mix it up a bit? Let us know in the poll to the right!

In the process of reviewing apps, I started to wonder how much time I spent on my iPhone. It’s got to be a lot, right? And if that’s the case — which it most certainly is — what do I do the most?

Now before I got my first iPhone I would’ve guessed that talking on the phone would be its primary activity. But now, I’m just not that sure. I spend a ton of time taking pictures and sending messages, plus there’s listening to music and watching videos.

So what about you? What would you guess is the No. 1 thing you do with your iPhone? Let us know in the poll to the right!

There’s been a lot of talk recently about the existence of an “iWatch,” a device that you wear on your wrist that either replaces or supplements your iPhone. It’s the first step in us all becoming Dick Tracy, which is a reference that even I am too young to fully understand.

What’re your thoughts? Would you buy an iWatch or similar device? Let us know in the poll to the right!

It wasn’t until relatively recently that I used my iPhone for an alarm clock. I had debated it for years, but after hearing about people having issues with time zone changes and all that, I just figured that it was best to use the old standby that sat on my dresser. Eventually, I changed my mind and went the iPhone route, and that’s been that.

Recently, however, I’ve thought about how I wake up. Usually it’s with a start, which isn’t the best way to begin your day for sure. I’ve started looking at different alarm clock options, and wondering what our readers use when they want to get out of bed.

So what’s your story? How do you wake up? Let us know in the poll to the right!

Valentine’s Day at my house this year is going to be a little different than in past years. That’s the 36 week mark in my wife’s pregnancy, meaning that she’s officially full term at that point and we’re on baby watch. My gut tells me that means I should get her something special.

Talking to friends about their V-Day plans, I realized that most of them communicate with the same device. They usually buy the same model of iPhone at the same time, and then they’re both using the same device. But that’s not always the case. What about you? Do you and your significant other both have iPhones? Let us know in the poll to the right!

There have been a lot of rumors floating around these past few weeks about a larger iPhone that’s in the mix. It has a 5-inch screen, and is designed to take on the larger form factor phones like Samsung’s Note and so on. For a long time, I discounted those rumors because it didn’t make much sense. But now, I may have a different opinion.

Marco Arment, developer of Instapaper and The Magazine, recently wrote a post about his theories on a 5-inch iPhone, and it makes sense — in a theoretical way, of course. Whether or not this device actually exists is anyone’s guess.

So what’s yours? If a larger iPhone exists, would you buy it? Let us know in the poll to the right!
