Love Music Apps? You Need to Protect Your Tablet’s Screen

Technology is changing at an absolutely breakneck pace: Many of the computer applications and software programs that are considered commonplace today were unheard of just a few years ago. Take music, for instance: Up until just a few short years ago, cassette tapes, compact discs and home stereos were the standard tools we used to listen to our favorite songs. Not any longer.

Music Apps

Many of us are listening to our favorite artists with the help of apps such as Spotify, which allows users to listen to the albums and playlists they love for free. Other popular apps for streaming music include Pandora and Slacker Radio.

Why a Smartphone Case or Tablet Cover Isn’t Enough to Protect Your Device

smartphone caseAccording to a recent survey conducted by Consumer Reports, the most common repair made to damaged smartphones and tablets is screen repair. Screens are most susceptible to scratches, cracks, breaks and discoloration when they’re exposed to the sun for extended periods of time.

And yet while most smartphone and tablet owners do invest in protective cases that protect their devices from falls or accidents, the majority of those cases don’t come with appropriate screen protection.

How to Protect Your Smartphone Screen at the Grocery Store

smartphone screenRemember the good old days when the grocery list was stuck to the refrigerator (probably with a magnet), and everyone simply wrote down what they needed?

Of course, when you needed to go shopping you had to actually remember to bring the list with you.

Or you had to make an extra trip home to get the list. Or maybe you just went off the store without it.

Times Have Changed

Nowadays, grocery lists can be kept on smartphones, which pretty much eliminates the problem of forgetting your food list altogether. What’s more, there are literally hundreds of apps available that can help you significantly improve your shopping experience.

Manufacturing Apps: How Mobile Applications are Altering the Manufacturing Industry

manufacturing appsIn today’s economy, nearly any new innovation that hints at an ability to increase a manufacturing firm’s profitability is heartily embraced. Without a doubt, one of the most sweepingly innovative changes to arrive in the manufacturing sector over the past few years has been the use of mobile computing applications — or ‘apps,’ as they’re more commonly known — in the workplace.

The environment of a manufacturing facility is fast-paced and deadline driven. And so any work process development that increases employee productivity without sacrificing safety is more than welcome. In fact, it’s often celebrated, and for good reason:

A Motorola survey recently revealed that that manufacturers who incorporate mobile applications into their processes saved a daily average of 42 minutes per employee.

Who could have guessed that allowing a telephone onto the factory floor would one day be encouraged?

Playing with your new toy brought you an almost childlike sense of glee.

NuShield Screen Protectors For Apple and Google Devices in Cars

Written By [php snippet=1]

Isn’t technology great? We have gone from Walkmans to iPods, oversized, bulky mobile phones to sleek smart phones, and from hard-to-fold maps in the glove box to digital GPS systems that tell us how to get anywhere. With the newest forms of car technology, consumers will be able to do it all right from the dashboard of their car from their phones, iPads, or notebook devices. Apple CarPlay combines the intelligence of the iOS operating system with your car, so you can use your phone, tablet, or iPod without having to pick up a device.

The new Google Open Auto Alliance does the same thing for Android users. With all of these conveniences, multi tasking is about to become the easiest way to get anything done, even while you are driving. So what’s the catch? The only downside is the reflective glare that keeps you from being able to see your LCD. So how do you fix it? Using an antireflective screen protector takes away the bright reflections and makes your screen visible again.

NuShield® DayVue™ is an antireflective protectant you use in your car to alleviate that reflective glare while you glimpse your GPS or other in-vehicle electronics devices. Not only does DayVue make it easier to read your messages or see who you’re calling, the screen protector is scratch resistant and easy to install. And the special coating on the film allows you to see the display even when you are wearing polarized sunglasses. Don’t have an Apple CarPlay yet but still enjoy using devices while you are in the car? Add a DayVue screen protector to you and your family’s devices, including iPads, phones, monitors, computers, and any handheld device.

The NuShield car screen protector uses light canceling technology to make it easy to see your device with no problems. The protectors come in a variety of sizes to fit all of your devices, so you don’t have to squint to see which songs you are looking for on your iPod. Eliminate eye strain while protecting your device’s screens with the DayVue protector film.

Need some help when you’re using your electronics inside? The NuShield Antiglare/Antifingerprint Screen Protector Film is a must have for indoor applications. Is your office lighting so harsh and bright you can’t see your computer screen? Use NuShield AG to cut the glare on any LCD screen. Using NuShield AG is the best way to reduce 99% of UVB light, and as a bonus, it hides the appearance of fingerprints, keeping your device neat and clean. Your computer or handheld device may even last longer when you use NuShield AG, because wear and damage are reduced. One of the best things about NuShield is how easy it is to put on and take off without any device damage.

Passing a device back and forth between your kids, or setting your device down in public places can encourage bacterial growth. Put a stop to it when you use NuShield Triple A screen protector, which includes an antimicrobial coating to prevent the growth of germs on your device. The Triple A is also antiglare and antifingerprint, making it a must for consumers who work in hospitals, airports, or libraries. This protector is the only option for devices with multiple users. Reduce the risk of germs and make it easy to see in any type of light with the NuShield Triple A.

Though in-vehicle electronics and a wide variety of devices like phones, MP3 players, laptops, and tablets make our lives easier, why not make it even simpler to see when it’s sunny, while protecting your device from scratches and fingerprints? That’s where the NuShield line of products comes in. Enjoy your devices without destroying your eyesight!
