INTRO TO ANDROID TABLETS (NON APPLE IPAD)*
(SINGLE SESSION CLASS)
Wednesday, January 21st / 1:00 – 2:30 pm

The universe of tablets and tablet computers can be divided into two groups: Android and Apple.  Those buying the more expensive Apple iPad tablets often go to Apple training sessions.  Android customers are not as fortunate and often struggle in the early weeks of ownership. The purpose of this talk is to ease the learning curve on an Android tablet by introducing some basic information.  Most of the discussion will also be helpful to those having “smart phones” since they are often based on Android too.  This is a hands-on lesson.  Please bring your Android tablet to class!
*Prerequisite: Current owners or users of Android tablets or smart phones who possess a basic understanding of computers and internet.   
Pre-registration required by phone, email or in-person.  Suggested fee is $5 per person to be made day of class.  Please call (908) 788-1359 or email scrabtree@co.hunterdon.nj.us

BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO ANDROID APPS*
(SINGLE SESSION CLASS)
Wednesday, January 28th / 1:00 – 2:30 pm

Once you have gained some familiarity with the Android (non-Apple) tablet, the next step is to install applications or “Apps”.  We will discuss some of the popular free apps that are available from the Google Play store in the “free mode”. 
You will be amazed at the choices of no-cost apps including games, reference, communications, finance, shopping tools.  Plus, we’ll explain the security and privacy reasons to use an app store as a clearinghouse for the apps you choice.
Most of the discussion will also be helpful to those having “smart phones” since they are often based on Android too.  This is a hands-on lesson.  Please bring your Android tablet to class!
