I tried it for directions the other day and it is not ready yet. We missed our exit because it did not give good enough directions. It needs to show the next exit number in the top left and the voice directions should tell you which exit to take and ahead of time. If those things get fixed then I probably could use it instead of Google maps.
I use email every day and I’m 38. I think most chat solutions suck because they do not integrate with each other. I’m excited about Delta Chat but I think it still has some way to go (I immediately ran into a couple of show stoppers).
One great strategy for learning is to pick a project first. Then read the learning material as you find gaps in your knowledge. Most of the courses for my degrees were like that.
