Welcome to Portsdown U3A iPad Support Group

The iPad group is for members who have an APPLE iPad.

The member support group is there to help. We share tips and knowledge with our members. The group is for beginners who are bewildered by such words as apps, scroll, synching, selfies and for those who are more familiar with using the iPad and are able to share hints and tips for getting the most from our ipads. Eg: taking and editing photographs on the Ipad. Members learn from each other and practice in a friendly supportive atmosphere.

New members are always welcome and 1-1 help can be arranged in members own homes. At present the group meet quarterly throughout the year at Cosham Baptist Church which has wifi availability.

We offer practical help and support. Members will need to have an email address to receive information about future meetings.

If you are interested come along and give us a try. The next meeting in July will focus on all aspects of “email”.

This will be open to any member who has an Apple iPad – or iPad Mini – and would like to learn a bit more. You will need to bring your charged iPad. There will be a charge for the room depending on how many attend but a minimum of £2

Meeting notes 30th May

At this meeting among the many topics covered was “apps” that can give you additional information and help.
A free iPad user guide is an E-book and is available to download free from the App Store. It has a useful index in which you click on the section you need and it automatically opens at that page. The “tips” app iPad tips also has simple hints that members may find useful. Another useful app in the App Store is “Tips and Tricks Lite” this is a free app and contains useful hints.
