Topic: Smart Phones and Tablets:  We’ll introduce you to the basics of smart phones and tablet computers. You’ll learn how mobile wireless devices work, how to use the home screen and the User Interface (UI) to configure your device, manage and operate its apps (application software programs) and download additional apps. Our focus will be on Android devices but we’ll also discuss Apple iPhones and iPads which are preferred by many to Android devices but are actually quite similar. Come to this meeting and find out why these ubiquitous gizmos are so captivating and useful.
