Meetings

JANUARY 11, 2022 - FAVORITE APP SHARING; EXPANDING MEMBERSHIP IDEAS; FUTURE TOPICS:
For this evening we ask members to share their favorite apps on Mac, iPhone or iPad. In the past this has been quite beneficial to hear about apps that other members have found to be useful, entertaining, or just plain fun.
Sharing from your computer is easy on zoom, but to do so from your iPhone or iPad you will need to do the following:
1. Login to the zoom meeting. 2. PLUG IN your iOS device into your computer with a USB cable. 3. When you want to share your screen, click “Share Screen” at the bottom of the zoom window and then select “iPhone/iPad via Cable” in the choices at the top. 4. Your iOS device will now be showing on the zoom screen and you can control what the audience sees through you iOS device until you stop sharing.
We will also ask members to come with ideas for expanding our GAMUG membership and ideas for future topics.
The meeting will start with the traditional brief Q&A period and the debut of a new monthly feature:
Glen’s Goodies. Details at the meeting.
