September examug

  Well, that might be the end of Summer, but it’s not all bad news. Our September examug meeting is just around the corner. Date: Tuesday 13th September Time: 7pm – Coffee and Cakes from 6.30pm Location: ISCA College, Exeter www.examug.org.uk (And Paypal have finally sorted our account – if your membership is up you can now pay again via our website). We have another great meeting planned – but things are a little in flux. Apple are hosting a special event on the 7th Sept. Depending on their announcements we may change around a few of the talks. We will let you know ASAP. We hope to start with a demo os iOS 10 – the changes, the new features and our opinion on whether or not you should upgrade. And just like last time, after the break we are giving you an option: Option 1: It’s the final part of our Prosumer Photography trilogy. Kris will be demonstrating Capture One. Option 2: iOS Apps for exploring the countryside. You might think getting your iPhone out on a nice walk is the worst possible idea! And you might be right!!! But there are some nice applications which can enhance a nice walk, including apps that help you identify everything from flowers to birds from their song! More information to follow soon!

And if that’s not sunny enough, the next examug meeting is just around the corner.   Date: Tuesday 12th July Time: 7pm – Coffee and Cakes from 6.30pm Location: ISCA College, Exeter www.examug.org.uk (And Paypal have finally sorted our account – if your membership is up you can now pay again via our website).   We have another great meeting planned. It kicks off with Darren and me presenting on Using a stylus with iOS. Can they be used to take notes? To journal? To mark up documents? Is it finally time to ditch pen and paper? We will attempt to answer all these questions and more! After the break we are giving you an option: Option 1: Following on from last meeting and part two of our prosumer* photo special trilogy, John will be presenting on HDR photography – including the amazing Aurora HDR and Dark Table. If you are a keen amateur or more of a photo-pro we guarantee you’ll learn something new, and hopefully help you on your way towards taking even better photos! Our final photo special is planned for September to complete the trilogy. Option 2: At member’s request I will be presenting on iOS Apps for Kids. Whether you have kids, grandkids or are just interested in how iPads are revolutionising learning and playing for pre-teens, this will be the talk for you. I…
