First examug 2018 – and it’s going to be a good one!

Hello all,  

Happy New Year! Here’s hoping for a happy and healthy 2018, and it all starts with our first examug meeting, and it’s next week!!

Date: Tuesday 9 January

Time: 7pm – Coffee and Cakes from 6.30pm

Location: ISCA College, Exeter

We begin 2018 with a brief look at Google’s ‘office’ apps. Our take on Docs, Sheets and Slides; who needs Word, Excel or Powerpoint or even Pages, Numbers and Keynote? The Google apps are free, and we will discuss what this means (leaving it up to you to decide if you are willing to pay the ‘price’ for using such applications) and we will give our take on their features, advantages and limitations. We will describe our experience of using the apps as our main office suite and even dipping into ensuring access to the created documents remains as secure as possible. The Google applications have certainly come a long way and offer many unique and useful innovations. If you’ve discounted them in the past, maybe it is time to look again! We guarantee you’ll learn something new, no matter your experience!

After the break we will have the final, final (!!!) part of our Take back Control series, finishing off Settings on iOS.  Ideally, bring your iPhone or iPad to follow what’s going on in the presentation, and like last time, it will be great for beginners, and the more advanced.  We will continue our step-by-step walk through of all the options you have at your finger tips. You may even find out how to sort out some long held gripes about things you thought you had no control. Even if you missed the first part you’ll definitely get loads of useful hints and tips from this session, whatever your level. In fact we think this session is an ideal one to bring a friend along with you, they will get a good flavour for the group and learn something new!  Plus it will be demoed on an iPhone X – and we will be sharing our thoughts on Apple’s latest, greatest and most expensive phone ever!

We have another great set of Raffle prizes, including more Apple merchandise, and some other treats.

Hope to see you there, and bring a friend!
