Android Class – March 15, 2018

  • Started with everyone checking in Play Store to ensure their apps are up to date.  Explained how to do this by pressing the 3 bars in the top left of the program.  My apps and games, and it will show how many updates are required.  Please make sure you are on WIFI in your own home, as if it’s a phone you could incur data charges.  If it’s a tablet, you will be fine.  If there are many to do, just do a few at a time as the UPDATE ALL can take a long time.
  • Check your settings by pressing the 3 bars, go to Settings, check the Auto-update apps setting – you have 2-3 options.  Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only is my setting (Dorothy)

Watched most of the following video of a recent APCUG course I took one Saturday:


Reviewed one of the following websites for Apps, so we can continue with this in the future.  Showed everyone if they go to there are 100+ free online courses they can take on their own at

Tech Boomers Resource site –

Here are some of the Tech Boomers Top 15 Apps

Links to visit in the future or on your own if you wish

Mentioned about a few apps in our discussions – Translate – which is built in with Google.  Try it out and see what it does for you!

Also, take a look at KEEP – a good note taking app, talk to it, take pictures, make bulleted lists
