There was a good turnout by 15 members at this first meeting of 2017.

John gave us a talk about Siri.
Siri has been available on iOS since 2011, but only recently on the Mac starting with Sierra. The demonstrations, mainly from his iPad, were all saved off-line in advance, since Siri is blocked at this venue.
John started by explaining what Siri is, and how to configure the voice… Read more…

Stephen Hardy’s entertaining presentation “Let’s start at the very beginning with A, B, C instead of Do-Re-Mi” (but making a serious point) and was motivated by Mick’s AGM report. It expressed thanks to all members, especially our Chairman Mick, actively involved in running AugWessex. His experience of running voluntary organisations suggests that positive feedback is not often forthcoming. As he will be moving from this… Read more…

John Lemon gave an outstanding presentation on ViewRanger, an app created by the Ordnance Survey which brings the precision and detail of the famous ranges of paper maps to iPad and iPhone. The app itself is free, but the maps, which are downloaded onto your device, have to be paid for. However, while a complete set of the 1:25 range of Great Britain would hit your wallet for almost £300, there is an… Read more…

We had 12 members at this meeting.

John gave us a talk today about the various features built in to OSX and iOS that could help anyone with poor eyesight.
Each demonstration was done on a MacBook, and then the equivalent one on an iPad, although some of the features would not have been available on earlier devices. The iPhone was not covered, but it was assumed that some of the features… Read more…

Michael ran through a small range of free apps, plus two paid-for ones and a useful no-charge web-site - all for the Mac, bat the web-site.

The first app was Enpass, which provides a secure place for passwords, bank account and credit card details, driving license and passport detail and other travel items and log-in passwords, and anything else that you may wish to secure. The main thing to… Read more…

There are many options that are available within the iOS and by the end of John's very thorough 'walk through', it was agreed that everyone attending had found something useful that they didn't previously… Read more…

Twelve members attended this meeting to hear Tony Still give us a very interesting and absorbing talk about the possible threats that could attack OSX and iOS.

Malware, which may include Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Bots, Adware etc. takes the form of a program placed on your computer covertly. It usually tries to remain invisible and may seek to spread itself to other computers. The writer's motive is nearly always money, perhaps by identity… Read more…
