Technological advances are making life easier as well as establishing the environment in which people are expected, perhaps forced, to be a lot more productive than they would be otherwise. So, I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and add my potential burden to your backpack.
Smart phones of every stripe can be loaded with apps that seem to be able to do everything except wash dishes. Apps for the Android phone are numerous.
