Using Smartphone for MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to Denver used to include a lot more uncertainty and -- to be honest -- extended boring hours than it does these days. Consider moving during a decade as recent as the 90s. Basic internet, no smartphones. You had to look for moving companies with the phone book and assume which one was the most suitable.

No smartphone to check in, reserve places to stay, or even tune in to podcasts with.
