Tutor for iPad: The Basics
Tutor for iPad: The BasicsI’m happy to announce I have a new tutorial for the iPad available. Tutor for iPad with iOS 10. This is an all new tutorial showing the basics of how to use the iPad with iOS 10. In the past, this tutorial demonstrated the basics with iOS 8. Even though most of the lessons in that tutorial are still relevant, I thought it was time to update the tutorial using the latest iOS. This tutorial is great for new users to the iPad, although I believe even seasoned users will find something in the lessons that will help them.

This tutorial is free for you to help you learn more about your iPhone! If you like what you see, I ask that you consider becoming a Premium Member to learn more about your Apple devices and help support the site.

For a limited time I have a special offer – you Pay What You Want for Premium Membership. Read more about why I am trying this new pricing model and Pay What You Want to become a Premium Member!

Tutor for Tap Forms 5

Tutor for Tap Forms 5 for the Mac is now available on the site

Tutor for Tap Forms 5

I have an all new tutorial on Tap Forms 5 available on the site. If you aren’t familiar with Tap Forms 5, this is a nice app that makes creating simple databases easy. It reminds me of the now discontinued Bento from Filemaker Pro, which I loved. What can you do with a database manager like Tap Forms 5? Create and manage lists, lots of them. In Tap Forms 5 these lists are called forms and it comes with a number of form templates such as Home Inventory, Frequent Flyer Numbers, Software Licenses, Health Insurance, Home Insurance, and many more. You can even create your own. I personally have a number of old albums and I created a form to help me manage which albums I have. You can also download a free trial of Tap Forms 5 from the developer. Check it out along with our tutorial. It may help in keeping you organized.

Take me to the tutorial.

Jimmy Lovine Is Officiating a Marriage of Tech and the Arts


Hannah Karp from the Wall Street Journal has a nice short interview with Jimmy Lovine.

We were trying to hire people for Beats, and it became apparent that there was a big hole when it comes to merging the arts, business and technology. When you go to college, one side of your brain usually gets shut off. Dre and I talked about it a lot. We thought what was needed was an undergraduate program that prized arts and culture and also demanded a strong ability in math, science and technology—a program where both sides of the brain are nurtured equally.

Does the Mac still matter?

Does the Mac still matter?

Shara Tibken and Connie Guglielmo of cnet got an exclusive interview earlier this week with Apple. It’s an interesting read.

“The calendar isn’t what drives any of the decisions,” Schiller says in a 90-minute briefing at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. “We challenge the teams to do great work and sometimes that great work can be done in one year, sometimes it takes three years… What we really care about is creating new innovations in the Mac and continuing the story that has really defined Apple for so many years.”
