Before you lose your iPad

A few days ago, I got a call from a friend asking for help. She had lost her iPhone and wanted to know if I could help her find it. I asked her if she had iCloud set up on her phone. The answer was no so there was not much I could do at that point. The story has a happy ending anyways. Luckily, she went back to the gym where she had worked out earlier that day and calling her phone while looking around she was able to find it.
I immediately thought: I should write a post and teach my readers how to take preventive measures against a situation like this one!

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a tool that helps you find it ? Continue Reading

Bonjour, est-ce que vous parlez français? Habla español?
In today’s society, it is a great advantage to be able to speak more than one language! Personally, I am fluent in Spanish and in English whereas my wife is fluent in English and in French. How about you?

Some time ago I wrote an article about translation Apps for iPad. Although translation Apps are convenient and useful in different situations, it is not the same as truly mastering a language, being able to speak it, read it and write it.

Instead of relying on software packages and audio courses that teach you a new language, why not try a language learning App on the iPad? Porque no probar un App para aprender idiomas en el iPad ? Continue Reading

I have many friends that travel abroad quite often. Naturally, they take their iPads with them wherever they go. Multiple destinations usually mean different currencies, which in turn mean different exchange rates. Unlike travel guides, exchange rates are constantly changing.
