There's an App for That - There's a What for What!?!
You’ve likely heard the phrase, “There’s an app for that!” But what is an app? And why do you need one? There are many useful apps to help us with our daily lives. Join us as we look at a few examples of apps and how to use them. Clock, calculator, calendar, phone, and the App Store are just a few we will be looking at. In addition, you will learn more about settings in this information-packed class. Most apps can be personalized to make them more useful to you by changing the settings. Join us as we learn all the ins and outs!
Suggested prerequisite: Understanding Your Smart Device
Smartphones - Texting and Contacts
It’s time to get smart with smart phones! In this class we will send and receive texts with pictures attached, all the while learning how to save friends to our contacts. Take the mystery out of texting, saving attachments, photos, contacts and dictating text. You will never look back once you have learned these skills.
Anything you want to know? Nowadays, they say, “Google it!” But how does that work? What am I looking at when I “Google” something? In this class, we’ll talk about browsers, search engines and the results list. What’s the difference between a web address, a website and a web page? What if the words are too small for your eyes to see? Upload? Download? We’ll look at videos online, images, shopping, filling out forms and maps. This class is for computer, tablet and smartphone users.
Let your maps tell you how to get to a specific place or how to find the nearest gas station. Tell your phone to, “take me home”, and get home from anywhere! We will look at many features of Google Maps including the ability to look at different routes, avoid tolls or highways, adding more stops, save your parking location and how to easily meet up with others and share your current location.
