When I first started writing this, I had the "main" gadgets included on my list (laptop, camera…etc), I then decided to focus on the smaller “bits” that make those gadgets better on another level - dramatic much? Well, here they are…
1. the WiFi memory card
This memory card has changed the way I take and upload pictures on social media (mostly) and the blog. I have always been stuck in between taking average phone pictures for social media or taking good quality pictures with my camera and wait until I import them to my laptop and email them to my phone! The hassle put me off using my camera that much.
The Transcend Scan memory card once put in your camera is detected on your phone as a WiFi connection; all I do is connect to it; go to the SD Scan application and all the pictures I took appear there. Here I select the pictures I want to download to my phone’s camera roll - it’s that easy.
2. the Portable charger
I started using a portable charger back when I was using the iPhone5. I have one phone for business and personal contact, I am always on social media and continuously checking my email throughout the day - getting this charger made sure I don't run out of battery in the middle of the day. Although the iPhone6 has a better battery, I still have it on me just in case I (or anyone with me) need a charge.
3. Native Union Key Cable
This one goes perfectly with the portable charger and having it attached to my keys, I no longer need to carry a cable separately to charge my phone.
4. Kate Spade & Native Union phone cover
I’m not a big fan of phone covers. They feely bulky and the phone ends up looking and feeling bigger and heavier than it is. Which is why I've dropped and destroyed ….five phones so far :/. So when selecting a case, I make sure it’s slim and my phone snuggles into it perfectly.
I've been loving the Kate Spade's “hello sunshine” case which has been available for a while, but only for the iPhone 5 - as soon as they launched it for the iPhone 6, I placed my order. I love how subtly the writing is on it, it makes me smile and it’s an actual mirror (which did come handy many times so far).
The Native Union is a more unisex option for a case with the solid cherry wood incorporated in the design; it has a stylish edge and a perfect lightweight fit.
I got the WiFi memory card and portable charger from Al Emaad in Al Araimi Complex for RO 32 and RO 17 respectively. Native Union products are available at Boutique Muscat and retail, Key chain for RO 12.400 and phone cover for RO 19.900. Kate Spade cover is available on www.nordstrom.com for RO 17 and they ship to Oman.
