iPhone Workshop every Wednesday


iPhone Workshop

Every Wednesday afternoon 

1:00 -3:00 
at Aquatic Park. In the Blue Room

Here’s what I have in mind:

No appointments

No Schedule

No Agenda

A simple informal group

Drop by and join others who have iPhones. Ask questions and we’ll work though each one and all learn together. I don’t think we’ll run out of things to cover, because the possibilities are endless with these amazing devices. We call them phones, but they’re far more than a phone. By adding apps, you can turn your “phone” into a variety of tools you’ll use constantly. We can all share our favorites and learn from each other too! I think it’ll be fun.

Here’s a short list of apps I use,

but there are 1000’s more:

Autible (books)

Hoopla (SF Library for FREE books, movies, etc.)

Use the Activity app
