Tech Tips For the iPhone (For Users and Developers)
This April, I’ll be celebrating my tenth year blogging about tech issues and how they impact my everyday life. Since I started writing here six years ago, it has been my goal to share my expertise with people who are interested in learning more about how technology works. In this article, we’ll cover five of the top most popular topics I’ve talked about on this site. As always, I welcome any questions you may have. Please feel free to leave me a comment on this article or post a question on a forum. Your help is appreciated.
One of the easiest ways I have used to get around the Windows Key lock is to right click on my desktop and select Properties. Here, I can see my active programs, my active windows key, my security center preferences, and my personal settings. All of these items can be accessed by right clicking on them, highlighting them, and then pressing the Insert Key or Control Key. This allows me to go in and change the various items, which I usually do to make my computer more functional. For example, I’m constantly in need of a way to increase the security of my wireless networks. By selecting the Privacy tab, I can turn off the automatic updates, take down my security settings, and increase the amount of time that my computer will remain offline.
Another one of my tech tips is to use a web browser instead of the Internet Explorer or Firefox when visiting unfamiliar websites. Internet Explorer has been known to freeze up the entire computer system when it loads up a page. In addition, Firefox sometimes has performance issues when the number of tabs is too large for your system. By using the web browser instead, you can visit sites with fewer bugs. However, it can be difficult to turn off the add-on features of these browsers, which means that you may still need to bring up the start menu in order to get out of the start screen.
One of the most common and useful tech tips for July is to install an iPhone decypher. It’s actually very easy to be hit by phishing scams, and not just because someone is sending you a fake update. If you are using your phone to surf the web, then you might not even realize that there is a problem until you receive a phone call from your bank or credit card company. The malicious attackers often set up websites that mimic legitimate banks, social networking sites, and credit card companies. Once you enter your personal information, you can easily be scammed out of money or even your identity.
Our next set of tech tips involves Dropbox and Google Docs. Dropbox is an online storage service that lets you upload items from your computer to the website. You can either upload items to the website through your web browser window, or directly from the dropbox application on your desktop. We ve found this to be one of the most useful features of Dropbox. It saves you a ton of time in searching for documents and items to upload, so if you’re in a hurry, this is a great way to get your job done.
Google Docs is another very useful feature of the iphone. You can easily make, share, and edit rich-text documents from your phone! This is a great way to share your work with friends, clients, or anyone else that might find your documents interesting. If you’ve been using Microsoft Word to create these documents, you will quickly learn why it isn’t as popular as some of the other apps. April and February are going to be quite hot, so if you haven’t been using the document program, you’re really missing out!
Our final set of tech tips for the iphone includes some tweaks for your keyboard. Everyone knows that the iphone comes equipped with a big, bright screen, but did you know that you can change the size of your text font? You can change it to make it easier to read when you’re doing something outside or when your vision is blurry. This is a great feature for people who are always doing something with their hands, as well as those with bad vision.
If you want to try a little more creativity than what these three tips offer, there is a new app available called Augmented Reality Sandbox. The app allows you to draw on objects in the real world with your phone, and then see the changes in the app. It’s great for drawing amazing pictures, 3D models, and building anything you want on the fly. Check it out at the iTunes store today for free! The most important part of all of these is that you have fun while you’re using your iphone, so don’t worry about the difficulty of learning new stuff – you can always learn when you’re not using your phone!
