What's Your Device?
First of all, check whether your device works on iOS (Apple) or Android operating systems. If you already know this then of course you can skip ahead, but here are some ways of finding out.
1. iOS device: You'll know straight away because these devices have the Apple logo on them and also their name betrays the operating system i.e. iPad or iPhone. They come with the App Store app preloaded so that you can buy apps easily on the device.
2. Android device: Start up the device and then press the settings symbol, this is usually shaped like a little cogwheel or you can find it by swiping down with your fingers from the top of the screen. Once in settings go to about tablet/about phone and there you will find which operating system is being used.
Not on Android?
Amazon Fire tablets use their own operating system as do Windows tablets. if you have one of these you may be limited in terms of the apps that you can access and you may not be able to access all of the apps I'm using in this course. It is it is however still worth your while taking the course as the broad principles of app use will be the same, and you will be able to explore relevant apps for these devices.
PC and Mac Laptops
There are of course applications (apps) available for both of these computers, but perhaps not such a wide variety as those that have been made for the mobile devices. We will however be covering some useful apps which work on these bigger screens.
Below you'll find instructional videos and accompanying pdf for each of the iOS and Android options. Select the right ones for you and you'll be able to make a start with learning how to locate, choose, download and install apps. Enjoy!
