Be Connected - Installing Apps on your Phone or Tablet - Sydney Course

You may have heard the word 'app' used before. It is short for 'application', otherwise known as a computer program. Because your smartphone or tablet is a type of computer, everything it does needs a program, or app. An app is usually represented by a small picture, known as an icon, on the screen of your device.

There are thousands of apps available that allow you to tailor your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or Android Tablet to do exactly what you want it to do.

Many of these apps are free, but some have a charge. This class will show you how to choose and install Apps on your phone or tablet to help you in everyday situations.

Macquarie Community College is committed to closing the digital divide. That's why we are network partners with ‘Be Connected’, an Australian Government initiative aimed at increasing the confidence, skills and online safety of older Australians in using digital technology.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across North and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Mt Druitt, Richmond and Ryde. Enrol today or enquire now!
