Internet SIG, December 2018, MeWe and the Edge Apps

December 15, 2018
10:15 amto12:15 pm



The topic is TBA.

Please note on 3rd Saturday, this month only.

MeWe and the Edge Apps almost sounds like a bad horror movie title!  But… the only horror story around here is Google Plus going away… 4 months sooner than originally announce!  It now due to be “sunset” in April 2019.

MeWe has the posting/sharing of G+… and chat…. and a basic events calendar, so…. after this meeting, I plan to close both the G+ group and the Yahoo group!!!  If you want to be notified of the meetings and get the stories/links afterward, you need to be a member of the group there.  If you haven’t already joined, you can request to join by clicking here

The CCAustin web site will continue to be updated with meeting announcements, but still not the post-meeting stories/links nor does it have any notification feature (i.e. you have to browse it periodically).

So…. the primary focus of this meeting will be getting everyone familiar with how to use MeWe.  To coin a phrase that always confounds me “it’s the same, only different”!.  Think of it as a housewarming!

As for the “edge apps”, those are ones you can invoke from the edges of your phone!  It’s a handy way to do something almost immediately, rather than with several taps!  The first of the 2 of them is simpler and lets you tap anything on your screen using only your thumb while holding your phone with 1 hand.  It great for when your other hand has a cup of coffee in it!  The 2nd one lets you move around your favorite and most used apps quickly… .and return to them quickly too.

All this, news, tips, and the funnies..
