23 Mobile Things #2: Mobile Device Tips

The tips were great, especially the Apple tips on photography and music. I will definitely be creating some new stations. A lot of the tips I was already familiar with.

One funny tidbit is that I have never gotten my Siri to work and have always blamed my husband for being the first to use Siri and throwing off the voice recognition. It turns out I've never enabled Siri in the two years I've owned the phone. It always appeared as if it was working as Siri would respond, but instead of doing what I asked, Siri would randomly start calling someone I rarely talked to or play a Bruce Springsteen song. I thought it didn't recognize my voice and that Siri was junk. My brother uses his Siri all the time which would drive me crazy since mine didn't work. Many apologies are due tonight!

Also, I will never enable emoji characters. That should be considered a tip on how to turn them off.

23 Mobile Things #1: Blogging and Registering

I'm hoping to learn some new mobile skills so my skills will be up-to-date and so I can help patrons with any issues.

For the first skill, I was surprised I did not have the option to start a new blog from the app. Perhaps this was because I already had another Blogger blog? The rest of the set-up was easy.
