iPhone 12 Pro Max

When I bought the iPhone 12, I was coerced into purchasing the insurance. I say coerced because as a general rule, I don’t buy warranties or insurance for devices. I never purchased it when I bought computers, tvs or projectors. Keeping true to myself, I opted not to purchase the AppleCare for the iPhone. iPhone [...]

Apple Pay Card

I recently became an Apple Pay member. Having an Apple Pay credit card (or should I say, line of credit) is a whole new way of life for me. For the record, I don’t use credit cards. Being the old-school, Low-Tech Grandma that I am, I use either cash or debit. I don’t like to [...]

Mobile Hotspot

Instead of purchasing a mobile hotspot device, I turned my old iPhone into a personal hotspot. Don’t be misled into thinking that my old iPhone is relegated to hotspot status only. I still use the old iPhone as my primary phone. Yes, it’s an old iPhone 6S Plus. Ancient by today’s standards, but it’s not [...]

iPhone Notes

I recently discovered that I can scan documents using the Notes app on my iPhone. In the past I used CamScanner. It’s a neat little document scanner app from which you can send the scanned documents either as an email, text upload to Google Cloud, or a host of other ways to share documents. I [...]

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 [...]

Dancing Low Tech Grandma

I put this dancing grandma video on my Instagram account and I received a comment from an individual asking me how I did it?  The quick one-sentence explanation was inadequate. I told her I created a Bitmoji and connected it to Snapchat, but realized the explanation might not have been good enough. The problem [...]

Gatwick Airport, England

I’m a US citizen that recently went on a 10-day holiday across the pond to the UK. Before leaving the US I researched to see if my cell phone would work while overseas. I went to the Consumer Cellular site with fingers crossed looking for a way to use my cell phone outside of the United [...]

Old School vs New School

The beauty of owning a large cell phone like the iPhone 6s Plus is that it can double as a workstation. Yes, I’m writing this post on my iPhone using a combination of Dragon’s Dictation and the portable keyboard. It’s amazing what a phone can accomplish nowadays. Finding the Right iPhone Keyboard Finding a portable [...]

OtterBox Logo

Now that I’m the proud owner of an iPhone, the first order of the day is to protect my investment. I’ve never spent so much money on a small piece of electronic equipment in my life, so it is important to do what I must to keep it in one piece. Remember the video of [...]

Apple Tree

Well, I went and did it. I jumped into the deep end of the pool. I decided to get an iPhone, so I ended up with the iPhone 6s Plus. This is my first experience in Appleland. Well, not really. Some time ago I had an iPod Nano that I liked very much until the [...]
