My go-to app, for the majority of my online knowledge

The only app that I go to first, last, always, and have saved ( I am going to have to learn how to create a folder for the information I have found in my devices), the countless times I needed tech support and help; with this app. I would still not have any answers to the most salient information that we online intermediate status for the “how to’s,” could ever have found with this awesome app. Thank you for creating this app for those of us who are not internet professionals, and require a lot of information to be able use the features of our iPhones and iPads!

This is a new review December 2020. I was so happy and grateful for everything I learned from this site; before I purchased anything I would come to this site first. I have no idea why I have to change my login account again! I been on the internet for hours for days and nights doing this for almost every contact I have. It is exhausting and tedious especially with a yahoo account! I new I should have opted for a different server. When the snow is gone, so is the worst possible server ever to exit. Gone baby gone and yahoo too!

iPhone 12 Pro Max videos.

It’s very informative for those of us that need a larger screen. Senior citizens/consumers and there are millions of us with huge buying power are hoping for lighter weights to hold. We also want more ability to have zoom when our eyeglasses are still on the table somewhere else. Maybe, we could just do a screen stroke to read it to us!? As I watched the video I laughed to myself wish a phone had a mini phone built in so we can take it for quick no need for a phone trip. Then, I remembered, use your iWatch remember?

The video was informative without all the technical jargon unnecessary to explain how it works and to use it. I hope I find more of these in the future. I saw this by accident.

I have revised my review from awful to great. They fixed the app so it now runs well on my iPhone and iPad. I enjoy reading the tech news and the occasional great deal offered on tech devices.
Update. I still enjoy the app but find it very annoying to use. At some update it was changed so it continues to load data and updates even after you are browsing the articles. The screen hardly ever stops moving. Articles jump from column to column and pages shift up and down. Everything jumps and you have to scroll around to find where you were before it jumped. Hate that. Screen should lock until I ask for it to update. This is on my iPad Pro.

Thank you so much!!!! We're glad that you enjoy it!
