  • by

newsreadersOur March MacLearn takes those dusty old books and magazines and vaporizes them with news apps, and demos an Apple wordprocessor that can easily make you a power user.

9 – 11:30 : Bring me the News!
With so much on the web to enjoy, wouldn’t it be great to be able to find all your favorites in one place? Gregg Kamei will demonstrate setting up on your iOS device newsreaders and aggregators such as  FlipBoard, Downcast, Reeder, Tweetbot and Zinio, plus other apps to help you get the news.

Please note: If you would like to participate in the hands-on, please have FlipBoard or other apps you’re interested in installed on your iOS device before you come to MacLearn.

Arlen Nagata will do a hands-on workshop on the new Pages for iPad and Mac. Pages is Apple’s word-processing app; now simplied for ease of use on all your devices.

Arlen will cover key functions such as: Opening, renaming and saving files; managing multiple documents; using and customizing templates; adding photos, charts and movies; editing text; speed formatting with the Paintbrush; plus saving and sharing documents with iCloud. New contextual side panels make it easy!

Arlen will also show you how the features common to all iWork apps (Keynote, Numbers and Pages) make it easy to learn all three apps.  BTW — Arlen has several really good training tutorials available at and is preparing a detailed handout for you to download and use.  (Note: iOS 7 or OS X Mavericks is required to use the new Pages.  If you have a new Apple device, or if you have iWork 09 already installed on your computer, you may download the new version for Free!).
