How do you check the daily weather forecast? A recent U.S. Cellular survey indicated that 93 percent of smartphone owners use a weather app on their device to check the forecast once a month or more. During a free Device Workshop, U.S. Cellular associates will show people how they can rely on their smartphone, such as the Apple iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S8, to stay informed, prepared and connected with a variety of apps and accessories when severe weather threatens or hits. Individuals do not need to be U.S. Cellular customers to attend. “Spring weather can be unpredictable and change in an instant,” said Mike Adams, U.S. Cellular’s director of sales in Iowa and Nebraska. “Smartphones and a number of free apps can help you stay ahead of Mother Nature. Our associates can share a number of smartphone tips that can help you stay informed if the skies quickly turn from sunny to stormy.” For more information, you may call 319-759-7800.
