Sheila Joynes's Musical Diary

I love being a geek!


I have a new phone…an HTC Desire. It has taken me a while to sort it out to my satisfaction but now I think it is amazing.

I always keep a record of my pupils and their lessons. Now, using Google Docs, all that is ‘in the cloud’ and I can write the records as I go along.

New this week is Swype. This is the means of using a different sort of virtual touch keyboard. It is really intuitive, following finger movements, guessing what word you meant where you are inaccurate, and offering alternatives. I’m hooked! And will probably write screeds now rather than short cryptic notes.

This blog post has been written on my phone while I’m sitting in the corridor in a school between candidates for accompanying in the County Youth auditions.
