The brain behind this blog is me, Doug.  I love technology and how it can be used to make day-to-day life better. There are few things more frustrating than having a powerful technological tool give you more headaches than be helpful. My goal is to focus on the latter. I want to help make the iOS devices you use – iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone, iPod Touch – be the most helpful tools they can be.

I am an early adopter. This means that I always like to try the newest thing even if it is different and will require learning an entirely new set of skills to make it useful. I live with a late adopter (my wife)! She would rather that technology stay the same for as long as possible because it is so frustrating when something “good” gets changed with a “confusing” update. So, I understand the gamut of where people are coming from when looking at technology and I have helped people learn how to use iOS devices who both love technology and also see it as a necessary “evil.”

I’m excited to share what I have learned (and continue to learn), with you!

helping you learn how to get the most out of your iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad Mini

  1. Thanks for reviewing OneReceipt (http://teachmeios.com/onereceipt-track-receipts-for-iphone-ipod-touch-and-ipad-mini/) this weekend. We will share with our flock and others in our industry. We own a couple more apps that you may find interesting. (Pushpins and FatWallet “Black Friday”). Both are very useful for consumers, timely, pretty unique to their category and well built.

    I’ve subscribed! Keep up the great work.

  2. Hi, can you help with the review and promotion of my iPhone application FNotes?

    I am an individual developer, this weekend the new version has come and I’m looking for ways to promote it.

    It is an great alternative to standard notes with sync via Dropbox, password-protected notes and designed in the style of ios 7, also working on iOS 5-7.

    App name: “FNotes: new style notes with its minimalistic design and Dropbox integration” for iPhone

    Soon a new version comes with many improvements and I’m looking for a way to promote it

  3. Newbie to the site and use of SIRI on iPad Mini. Would like to know how to add MY INFO so that SIRI knows who I am. More generally, would like to know how to add CONTACTS. Most of what I have read assumes that these already exist.
    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Frank, you can easily add my info for Siri to access by creating a contact card (in the Contacts app) that has your name on it. Add as much info as you would like (name, email, phone number, home address, work address, etc.). You can also add relationships like: Mom, Dad, Brother, etc by entering names into the “Related Names” field. Then, once you have your contact card filled out, you go to Settings –> General –> Siri –> My Info and select the contact card you just created and/or filled out. That should do it. Please let me know if you have more questions on this.
