Lifetime Products on Your Smartphone or Tablet

iphone screenshot.JPGBack when I was a kid, my Dad asked me to look at some computer specs and "pick the one we wanted". He was a very frugal man and told me to make sure it would "last me though college". That was probably a bit naive, but neither of us knew any better. Today I have a "computer" with a much faster processor, more RAM, more storage space, and a significantly faster Internet connection -- it fits in my pocket and I call it a "smartphone".

It really is amazing, the technology that we take for granted. Here at Lifetime Products, we've always used technology to solve problems -- not just because it's "cool" -- though a lot of it is really, really cool! Such is the case with smartphones and tablets!

home.jpgIf you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Windows Phone 7 we have an app for you! Our apps put our information about all our products literally at your fingertips. Since the beginning, our iOS app has let you carry that information with you without requiring an Internet connection. That can come in handy if your tablet only has WiFi in it and you're away from a hotspot, or when you're inside one of those big box stores and your 3G/4G signal can't get through all the concrete and metal around you. Of course, when you are connected, we take the opportunity to update our product catalog so you'll always have the latest information right where you need it.

Our Windows Phone 7 app, however, had to be connected to the 'net to get product details. It was a technological limitation at the time. Now, with Windows Phone 7.5, that limitation has been lifted and we've been updating our app to take advantage of the new off-line capabilities!

If you have a Windows Phone you can grab the new version from the Windows Marketplace.

What about the web you ask?  The Lifetime Store online (www.buylifetime.com) is now mobile-friendly! Yes, you can now buy our products right from your phone or tablet, anywhere that you have an Internet connection -- yes, even there.

He is a member of various community, church, and civic organizations, and is actively involved with local, state, and national government.

You made a right step having created a mobile app. Mobile devices are more and more popular nowadays so it makes sense to create mobile apps so that people can reach you from their mobile devices.

Five S's for Gardening Success
The beautiful thing about gardening is, in one way or another, everyone is a beginner. Even if youve been gardening your whole life, theres something new to learn about growing different kinds of plants, growing in different climates, or dealing with new pests. If youre just starting out and contemplating planting a tomato, rose, or petunia, dont be intimidated. Trial and error are the best ways to learn. For example, I tried multiple ways to rid my yard of moles. I tried baits, traps, and even vibrating mole repellants to no avail. It wasnt until I tried castor oil, that I was able to convince the moles to move away. Here are some tips on getting started in the vegetable or flower garden. Follow these 5 Ss and youll be well on your way to a productive, beautiful garden. SunMost fruiting vegetables (tomatoes, beans, squash)...
Lifetime Receives Utah Genius Award
I had the privilege of attending the Utah Genius Award luncheon this past week, on behalf of Lifetime, as we were awarded one of Utahs Top 20 companies with the most patents issued in 2009! The awards honor people, cities and organizations with the most patents or trademarks throughout the past year. This past year, Lifetime received 15 new patents! These patents cover a variety of our tables and our fold-up utility trailer. The patents join Lifetime's more than 475 existing patents, which protect our innovations and intellectual properties that our employees worked so hard to invent and design. A crowd of around 500 people gathered Wednesday at Salt Lakes Little America Hotel for this annual event. Governor Gary Herbert opened the awards luncheon with Doug Fabrizio of KUER radio as the keynote speaker. A product reception ...
Outdoor Retailer Wrap-up
Another year of Outdoor Retailer (OR) has come and gone. For those of you who dont know what OR is, it is the largest outdoor industry trade show in the whole world! It is held in our backyard in downtown Salt Lake City. This year, we also had the industry Demo Day in our backyard as well because it was moved from Jordenelle Reservoir to Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Valley! We spent all day on the beautiful banks of Pineview paddling and talking to folks from all over the world. We were super busy and had tons of people stop by to give our boats a test run! What a day! After Demo Day, the indoor show begins. We spend months preparing and designing both our booth and new kayaks to unveil at the show. This year we went all out, even more than we have in the past. We showcased all of the kayaks in our lineup at the Outdoor Retai...
