How to’s

Much of this blog is dedicated to “how to’s” for the iPhone, the iPad and the Kindle. You can always find these by looking under “Categories” on the right side of the blog, and clicking on “how to” right there.

But because there are so many how-to instructions on this blog (with more to come!), it might be easier to sort through titles.

Therefore I have linked the “how to” posts to the titles listed here. I’m hoping this is a more convenient way to find what you need.

I have sorted these further by making a separate page for the Very Beginner Series, and iOS 7, although those posts are also linked below.

  1. OMG! This is a treasure trove of info for me! Whoo-hoo! I’m actually going to learn how to use my iPhone. :-)

    • I’m so happy that this will be helpful!!! Your iPhone can be so much fun. It is SO much more than a phone. One point, tho…. I think you said you have a 3? Some things might not apply. Most will, but some won’t. :)

  2. Yes, I don’t have facetime and some other things, but I do have the new iO6 so I also know I’m way behind in all the goodies available. Thanks for sharing your wonderful knowledge and great blog :-)

    • Oh, that’s great!! See? You know a lot more than you think you know! As long as you have iOS6, you’ll be able to do many things. Super! (and thanks for the kind words :) )

    • It’s still coming down. They are now calling for up to 14 inches. Can’t even imagine where they are going to put it all. :) Thanx for the kind words about the blog-look.
