A Day in the Life of a Busy, Tech Savvy Dad

Mobile technology and apps to help dad stay in touch and organized.

By on June 13, 2013

Whether he’s on the job or on the soccer field cheering for his daughters, Terry Rackley, a district manager for Verizon Wireless, finds technology important in his everyday life.

Balancing work life and personal life can be challenging for even the most experienced dad. Using the Group Me app, Terry is able to create separate chats to keep track of family and work communications in the same place.

Juggling communication is enough of a challenge, much less busy schedules. For Terry, making sure to catch his daughters’ soccer games is a priority. When he can’t be there, he and his wife use FaceTime to watch some of the action from afar. While at the game, he captures and shares photos instantly with his Nokia Lumia 928 smartphone.

Terry also tries to squeeze in a little time for exercise. LG Tone headphones allow him to listen to music as he runs and answer calls with the Bluetooth capability. The accessory even reads his text messages out loud so he doesn’t have to break stride.

At the end of the day, this family man likes to wind down by spending time with his loved ones watching their favorite shows. He records shows with his smartphone or tablet using an app for his cable company so they are ready to watch on his DVR when he gets home.

Like many busy dads, finding a way to juggle the everyday demands of work, family and friends can be difficult. Terry uses wireless technology to make sure his everyday life runs as smoothly as possible.
