And there are many other apps that work well too. I used "Move to IOS" successfully. First go to the Google Play Store on your android phone and install the app "Move to IOS." Open that app, and then when setting up your new iphone, when you come to Apps and Data, choose the "Move data from Android" option. Follow the simple directions and voila! Takes less than five minutes, and you are all set!
The StrawBerry Ridge Computer & Tablet Club meets on the third Thursday of the month at the Activity Center. The purpose of our club is to offer support to other users, solve computer-related problems and learn new things. We will be giving instructions on tablets and IPADS starting at 6:00PM as well as giving individualized help to those who bring laptops. At 7:00PM we turn our focus to computers. All residents of StrawBerry Ridge are welcome to join, and there is no fee.
Here are some to check out:
If you are having problems with your WI-FI reception in your home:
1. Move large furniture to the edge of room. Signals are impeded when they have to go through walls, furniture, etc.
2. Eliminate mirror and metal cabinets near the Modem/Router. Signals will bounce off of them.
3. Keep Modem/Router away from microwaves, monitors and receivers, fish tanks, tvs, Christmas lights, electronic gadgets where possible.
4. Change to a different channel in the Router.
5. Update the firmware.
6. Place in center of home and as high as possible.
7. Plug into a UPS unit to avoid power surges, lightning, etc. Never plug into an extension cord. Must be plugged directly to outlet or UPS.
If you hate it, you can turn the keyboard off by going into the Settings menu on your iPad, selecting General, and then Keyboard. From there, you just need to toggle off “Enable Key Flicks.” When you do, your keyboard will (thankfully) be reverted back to the standard iPad keyboard you’re used to using, without all the extra clutter.
When the Strawberry Ridge Computer/Tablet Club starts up again in September, we will be missing a key figure. Carol Tate has moved to CA to be closer to family. Carol has lived in the Ridge for 21 years and has been very active in so many organizations and events. Whether you saw her with the CERT group or serving a buffet dinner, selling raffle tickets at the Ceramics Sale or greeting people as they came to Computer/Tablet Club, Carol was a familiar face around here. In addition to all of that, Carol worked quietly in the background keeping our SR Phone Directory up-to-date for all the years that she lived here. And that was no small task! To say that Carol will be missed is a gross understatement! Since she was instrumental in keeping the Computer Club going even when other club leaders have moved on, we owe her a debt of gratitude. Yes, we will all miss Carol Tate, but we wish her all the best knowing that she will be relaxing and enjoying her family now. And with modern technology, we will still be able to stay in touch. So, Carol........be prepared..........you just never know when we might FaceTime you! Thanks for your dedication to StrawBerry Ridge!
