iPads® and iPhones® - what about those Apps?

iPads and iPhones have not changed the way peo- ple communicate, they have impacted the ways we interface with the world and organize our lives. In this course, students will become more familiar with their device settings, decode associated vocab- ulary, and learn how to search for new applications (“apps) that will transform their mobile technology experience. We will explore some apps in class that will be useful for photograpny, social media, fit- ness and nutrition, travel, movies, and magazines. Please come to the first class with a working Apple ID.
