iOS 11 icon

Come join us at the October monthly meeting where we'll be featuring the following presentations:

Bruce Mittelman will give a presentation of iOS 11, Apple's newest mobile operating system. Bruce will cover all the new features from the new customizable Control Center, Drag and Drop, iPad Dock, Siri improvements, new keyboard features, and so much more.

Jerry Glacken will give a demonstration of Picatext, the easy to use OCR tool that allows you to copy text from images, videos, your screen, etc. This app will teach you to stop typing and start copying.

Catherine Mascis will give an overview of Noise Blockers which help block out distracting noises when you need to work without distractions by concentrating on the sounds instead of the noise around you. Sounds include natural noises as rain and thunder to church bells and spaceship sounds.

Scott Alenick will give an in-depth presentation of Apple Wallet, the app that allows you to keep credit, debit, and prepaid cards, store cards, boarding passes, movie tickets, coupons, reward cards and more in one place.

George Ajjan will give another installment of "Three Things To Know On Your Mac" in which he'll show interesting tips and tricks that anyone can use to improve their Macintosh workflows.

And we'll be taking about all the latest Apple and technology news and have our "Question & Answer" session where our experts will try to solve your problems.

Plus, as an added bonus, we'll have a little pre-Halloween party with some cake, snacks and drinks for everyone!

As always, a meeting you won't want to miss! Hope to see you all there!
