1. Problem: Your smartphone freezes. It鈥檚 happened to all of us; just when you need to access something important, your trusty phone totally freezes. There are lots of tips for unfreezing phones, including holding the home and power buttons down at the same time on your smartphone for 10-20 seconds. But an easier one might be right in your pocket. Try simply plugging it into its charger, and that little jolt usually snaps your phone right back to life.

2. Problem: You need WiFi from the road. Sometimes work can鈥檛 wait. Sure, there are personal hotspots on some devices but they can be spotty and don鈥檛 allow you to send or receive larger files. Well, we鈥檝e got news for you! The First-Ever* Ford EcoSport has built-in WiFi so owners and passengers can enjoy an in-vehicle WiFi hotspot. Even if it鈥檚 parked outside where you鈥檙e hanging out, you and your crew can use it. Up to 10 devices can connect at once, and it鈥檚 available up to 50 feet away from the vehicle!

3. Problem: You鈥檝e got to preserve a super low phone battery. You鈥檝e got an hour or more left in your girls鈥 night out, and you know you need just enough juice to call for a ride home. What鈥檚 a girl to do? Everyone has their own tricks for helping save on precious battery life, including shutting down any extra apps or turning off Bluetooth. But the real power hog on your phone is usually your beautifully bright screen. Turn down the brightness of your screen, or 鈥 if battery life is a regular problem 鈥 pick darker wallpaper or put apps in night mode to keep your screen from being brighter than it needs to be.

4. Problem: You keep missing important texts or emails from your boss. You鈥檝e just started your dream job, but you know your demanding new boss wants you to respond to her ASAP when she hits you up. You can customize contacts on your phone with custom ringtones or vibration that notify you only when she calls or texts. And if you 鈥渟tar鈥 her email address in, your email app will give you extra notifications to never miss an email from her again. You can even customize which notifications pop up on your home and lock screen for when your phone is silent in a meeting.

5. Problem: You鈥檙e not sure if your TV or cable remote batteries are dead. Just when you settle in for a binge-a-thon with yourself and a glass of rose, your remote straight-up doesn鈥檛 work. To quickly check if it鈥檚 just your remote鈥檚 batteries that need a refresh, pull out your phone, switch on the camera, and point the remote right at your phone鈥檚 lens. Your phone will be able to see if your remote鈥檚 sending signals, even if your eye can鈥檛. If the remote is working, you鈥檒l see tiny lights on your screen when you press your remote鈥檚 buttons.

6. Problem: You鈥檙e in a rush and ask yourself 鈥淚s there an app for that?鈥 Well, the answer is yes 鈥 several, in fact. Pop in 鈥減roductivity鈥 to an online or app search and the options are endless. They鈥檒l help you manage your time and money, and some do both! Also if you鈥檙e a freak about staying connected on the go, the First-Ever* Ford EcoSport offers SYNC庐 Connect. The FordPass鈩 app allows owners to check their fuel, locate their vehicle and, our favorite feature, you can start, stop, lock, and unlock the vehicle directly from the app.** Talk about a life hack!

7. Problem: Multitasking on your browser leaves you with tab overload. You know it鈥檚 been a busy workday when you look up to see a million tiny tabs at the top of your browser window. Now, where did that doc you needed go? Take a shortcut by hitting Control + 1, 2, 3, and so on to go to specific tabs based on their position, or use Control + Tab to just cycle through the tabs. And if you accidentally close one of those valuable tabs, hit Command + Shift + T to open the last tab you closed.

8. Problem: The person who finds your lost phone can鈥檛 unlock it to know to contact you. We all live in fear of misplacing our phones while on the go. If you leave your phone behind like in a taxi or in a restaurant, give that potential good samaritan an easy way to get your phone back to you. Leave your name and contact details on your lock screen by screenshotting a text version of them, and making them your lock screen wallpaper.
