We go over many of the new features in Monterey after 6 months. Delivered using a fast paced keynote. Features included are useful for all skill levels. Video will be made available after the meeting on the website.
When out shopping and collecting receipts after each purchase, instead of keeping a receipt that fades over time, scan it into your iPhone. The receipt becomes digitised and never fades. Receipts can also be kept this way for any warranty needs.Continue reading “Using Notes.app to Scan Receipts and Documents”
Soon everyone will need to prove their vaccination status to enter some business premises. This can be done in multiple ways. We will cover the best way for an iPhone which is to link the certificate from the Medicare Express Plus app with the Service Victoria app. This means you can prove you have checked-in and are vaccinated by scanning the QR code. Easy.Continue reading “Link Vaccination Certificate to Service Victoria app on Your iPhone”
Sometimes when we write we need to know how many words or characters we are writing. There might be word limits on an assignment submission or we just want to control the size of what is being written. Some software have a word count tool. Some software doesn’t. This universal word count can be used in TextEdit and Notes or anywhere that text can be selected.Continue reading “Universal Word Count”
