Organizing your Smartphone or Tablet

In keeping with our "Spring Cleaning" theme of the last couple weeks (yes, we're still sure it's around the corner...we think...), we continue today with cleaning and  organizing our Smartphones and tablets.


Time to purge:
Superfluous contact files: With repeated syncing with your computer or cloud files, you may find you've accumulated some duplicate contact listings. Clean them up by merging any duplicates containing different information ensuring you've kept the most up-to-date changes, then delete the remaining copies.

Photos: If you're "snap-happy" with your phone or tablet, your albums are likely hogging the bulk of the space on your device. You can free up space for more files (and new photos, of course) by deleting blurry or missed shots, and transferring the rest of your collection to your computer, backup drive,  or cloud service. 

Apps: Take some time to review your collection of applications (apps) as well. If you haven't touched that puzzle or word game in months, or you have more than one version of a translator or conversion app, it's time to get rid of the excess.  

Get organized.
A few weeks ago, we discussed how to create and implement a file management system for your hard drive; you may find many of those guidelines also apply to your Smartphone or tablet. And while we do enjoy our small collection of tech devices, we don't yet have our hot little hands on one of each of these devices to provide you step-by-step instructions and examples. So here, we will defer to the device manufacturers and other experts in the field to share file management processes for some of the more common Smartphones and tablets on the market:
If your Smartphone or tablet isn't listed above, please refer to your device manufacturer's website for instructions.

    The majority of my computer training focused on Publisher. I have received positive comments and feedback from several of my colleagues on the changes between my first attempt and current expertise creating the monthly internal newsletter for my department. They enjoy the updated format and the way in which the information is presented. 

    Deborah assisted me through a learning curve, as I had not previously had any exposure to this program prior to joining Rama. She also provided me with a refresher course on PowerPoint and Excel.  Deborah is a patient teacher and tailored the training to suit my job requirements.
