Congratulations On Your New Tablet or Smartphone! Now What?

Congratulations on finally getting your new smartphone and/or tablet! Maybe you got a new Home Theatre or cool camera! Now what?

Rather than putting together a long list of how to set things up and what you should download to make it the best thing you’ve ever owned, I’ve  created a list of links to some of my favorite sites for learning the “now what?” and the best apps to get you started.

Within this article from Gizmodo, you’ll learn how to set up any and all of the following:
  • Master your new smartphone
  • How to set up your iPhone 5 the right way
  • How to use your fancy new camera
  • How to switch from iOS (Apple) to Android
  • How to set up your new home theatre
  • Windows 8 survival guide
  • How to switch from Android to iOS (Apple)
  • The OSX Mountain Lion survival guide.



Welcome to the wonderful world of apps!

Congratulations of finally joining the wonderful world of the iPad. This article from Business Insider gives you a list of the top apps that you should install to get you connected with your friends, watch media, be creative, stay informed, be efficient, and more.

This useful list from The Next Web includes some other apps besides what you learned in the above list. One or two may be repeats, which means that everyone thinks you should have them.

Android users have their own app list to review so your experience is that much more wonderful too.


Enjoy your new device, and if you have additional questions about what to do next, I suggest that you browse around here on DESIGN TECH TONICS for more information. The answer is probably somewhere in here, but if it’s not, feel free to write to me at beryn@bhammil.com and I’ll try to point you in the right direction.
