Whether you use it for games, planning, banking or any number of other functions, smartphones are often actually under utilized. Here are ten ways you can use your smartphone to get the most out of your Ocean Isle Beach vacation.
Keep up with your banking
Almost every major bank has an App. These Apps are great for keeping up with expenses, monitoring your accounts and generally staying on top of your finances. One nice thing is having the ability to pay bills remotely or even transfer money for unexpected expenses. Check with your bank and sign up for their mobile banking App before you head out on vacation.
