This month was a very informal affair with no presentation but plenty of time to deal with questions & answers. We worked through the WAMUG joining process for a few members who'd paid their subs up front but not set up their profile on here and also looked at varies, mainly iPad related issues… Read more…

Unfortunately, due to problems in the kitchen, those of us who'd planned to eat before the meeting held up the start for almost half an hour.

He gave us a very comprehensive presentation including most of the changes from iOS 6 and had prepared before & after screenshots of the icons, some of which have changed beyond all recognition leaving some people searching… Read more…

This month we were treated to a very entertaining demo by Brian. We're used to the high tech world of Apple but in contrast, and I hope he won't mind me describing his gadget this way, Brian had gone very low tech to produce a turntable to hold his camera to produce a 360deg video. This was made from a 1.5v motor purchased from Maplins and bits & pieces found in his shed, namely… Read more…
