Voice Record Pro

I can’t believe I didn’t write about this app before. Several years ago I came across a free app called Voice Record Pro. I started using it in conjunction with NaturallySpeaking. It allowed me to record dictation for later transcription. I previously used Dragon’s free Remote Anywhere dictation app, but they discontinued it only to [...]

Jackery

About a year ago, I purchased a 240-watt Jackery power station. I bought it to keep me powered up during my van travels. With having a laptop, tablet, and iPhone, I wanted something that would adequately charge the devices. Whether I went camping, picnicking in the park, or just hanging out in the yard, the [...]

iClever Package

My fingertips are dancing across yet another keyboard. Yes, I’m still testing portable keyboards and I think this one, made by iClever, is a keeper. I returned the last one because it just didn’t work for me. This one, however, seems to have everything the other keyboard was missing (with 2 small exceptions). What You [...]

Samsers Box

I’ve been testing all sorts of things lately. This Low-Tech Grandma is having a ball. This time around, I decided to try using a portable keyboard. After all, I purchased a min PC and portable monitor, why not a portable keyboard to complete the trio. The keyboard I’m testing now is the Samsers wireless mini [...]

Stageek Mouse Mover

Back in September, my husband thought I was nuts when I suggested a mouse mover. As a matter of fact, back then I didn’t know that such an item even existed, but I figured if there was a need, there must be a product. If not, it’s time to create the product to fit the [...]

Instagram

Instagram is a neat little tool. It allows me to keep up with the happenings of my younger relatives. I much prefer it to Facebook because it’s concise. The problem I have with Instagram, however, is that it isn’t as PC friendly as I would like. You see, these eyes much prefer viewing Instagram through [...]

Instagram

This post will tell you just how low-tech I am. I’m almost too embarrassed to write it, but I’m figuring there’s at least one other old timer out there that wanted to know how to solve this dilemma (without involving our sometimes techno-smug children). I’ll make this short and sweet. The Instagram Problem As the [...]

Battery Charge

A few months ago (November 2018) I bought an Amazon HD 10 Fire tablet. I love the tablet. It’s quick, relatively inexpensive (compared to my now defunct overpriced Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1). The fire tablet’s integration with Amazon’s videos and downloaded books made my life easy. In addition to its seamless integration with my downloaded [...]

Blokada

I want to begin this post by saying thank you to Rita M. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have investigated the Blokada app. What is Blokada? Blokada is a free open source ad blocking app that works on Android devices, including the Amazon Fire Stik (unfortunately, it does not work on iOS). It [...]

No More Terrarium TV

Terrarium TV, you have changed my life! It was about 18 short months ago when I first became aware of the movie streaming world. Back then I purchased and “jailbroke” my first Amazon Fire TV stick. Oh, what a newb I was. It’s been a long time since this grandma was a newbie at anything [...]
