Those of you who are long time readers here at Snail Pace Transformations are looking at the picture below and going “That’s a smartphone” I thought Victoria didn’t have one of those.
Truth, yes I do have a Smartphone now through Tracfone, but I still find myself using my iPod a lot. I just like how the iPod functions better plus I like making sure that apps are tablet friendly for all of you out there who are using them like smartphones in free wi-fi areas.
Honestly I don’t think I would have switched if my old cell phone, had not died, and Tracfone started offering android based smartphones for right around the same price we were paying for our old cells (providing we don’t become data hogs )
Now that the cat is out of the bag lets get back on topic.

Very helpful on road trips where you don’t know what station has the best prices in town.

Those of you with unlimited texting plans won’t benefit from this app but those of use with pay as you go plans will. I use the text free app to text my hubby at work where he uses his text free app to text me back. This saves us several texts per day. My daughter also uses it on her iPod to text to my cell phone while I am out and she is at home with her older brothers.
