A List of iOS 8 Updates You May Not Know About

ios8logoI recently updated my phone to an iPhone 6. It’s much faster then my old phone (the 4s) and I like the new features Apple has added to iOS 8. While some of the updates like the health app are more widely known, there are also a few little features that Apple has added to make your life that little bit easier.

Breather App Gives You A Break

It’s an iPhone app which describes itself as a quiet space in the middle of the hustle and bustle. On Breather you can book a room in New York City and Montreal where you can meet clients, work, or relax. It costs $25 per hour. Breather rooms are designed to give you the perfect time-out experience; whether you need fast WiFi, a desk or a comfortable couch to kick back and read on.

Overall I was very impressed with my free trial hour. I booked a room near where I work in Rockefeller Center, which is an incredibly busy area. It was amazing how quiet the room is considering I was right in the middle of Midtown. I almost forgot where I was. It was easy to check in using the app and all I had to do was show my ID to the doorman at the building and he allowed me up to the suite. When I checked in, I was given a pin code to get into the actual suite. I got to relax, chat with a friend on the phone and answer some emails. I definitely plan on using this service again, and I would recommend it if you need to be more productive and get away for just a few minutes.
