  • Safari: Navigating Web Pages
  • Safari: Using the Keyboard
  • Safari: Bookmarking
  • The New York Times as it appears on the Web
  • The New York Times App fits better into the IPhone/IPod Touch. It is so much easier to read!
  • Miner website as it appears on IPhone/IPod Touch. Currently, there is no mobile application for the website. Stay tuned, though – there should be one in the near future!
  • Some websites adjust automatically to the small screen. Our News & Tips blog is an example of that.
  • Downloading Apps to Your iPhone or Ipod
    Start by clicking on the icon for the Apps Store.
  • Apps are organized by category (you can scroll down to see more).
    Click on Music to download a music application.
  • From the Music list, I’ve selected Top Free. Click on Pandora to download the free Pandora app.
  • Information about the app will display. This sounds interesting – and it’s free –
    so I’ll click on FREE to download it.
    (Apps that are available for purchase have a BUY button.)
  • The, click INSTALL.
  • You’ll be prompted for your iTunes Password. Once you enter that…
  • Pandora will begin to load – and you’re ready to play.
  • If you decide you don’t want the app,
    simply hold your finger on the icon until it starts to jiggle. Then, click on the X to delete.
