Apple, Android, Windows Mobile, or something else? Any particular reason why?

Android phone. When I bought it, it seemed like there were a lot of apps that weren't quite available on windows or Apple yet. The biggest of those, to me, was navigation.

What model phone are you using right now?

Samsung Galaxy S3.

What is your favorite app?

Google Maps. I'll sometimes drive until I'm lost and Maps bails me out.

If you could build an app right now and it could do anything for you, what would that app do?

I'd tell you, but then I couldn’t make money off the patent!

Have you ever texted during a movie?

No - but I hear that's a good way to get the FBI to check you out and drag you through the theater.

Do you use a phone calendar?

I get alerts from Google+ when things are scheduled. But other than that I don't use my phone to schedule.

Do you know the most played song on your phone?

The Comcast "hold" music?

Custom or standard ringtone? If custom, what is it?
