LG hosted a promotional event at their studio in NYC, featuring actress Ali Landry, to demonstrate how LG phones can help users balance their work and family life.
Programs supported by the LG Viper like “Life's Good Fairytales” can bring relief to people who find themselves squashed between the demands of their jobs and their families. The app is an interactive storyboard that allows parents and kids to upload photographs of their own faces into pre-constructed fairy tale stories. In addition to photos, names of characters can be customized, and you can even insert voice recordings into the program.
Another feature on the LG Viper that makes it a potential tool to help sort out these difficulties is the phone's extra-large display screen and high quality camera. In conjunction with the high performance connectivity that 4G offers, parents can interface digital with their children when they are away from home.
Also mentioned at the event was Box. Box provides users with 50 GB worth of cloud-based storage space, pro bono. Parents can use the space to store the data they collect and produce on their LG phones. Services such as this one make mobile computing more powerful than ever.
According to a study conduct by Harris Interactive, as much as 57 percent of American parents use phones like the LG Viper in order to keep themselves organized and maintain some semblance of sanity between their work and family lives.
About 2/3 of interviewees admitted to the nasty habit of checking their phones during what is otherwise cordoned off as “family time.” 2/3 of interviews also claimed said that they give their phones to their children in order to keep them entertained. Almost 1/3 of those interviewed said that they have, at some point, used a smartphone in order to provide them with reading material for their kids.
