Tip of the Month - Remember This
This month's tip below is for those who want an easy way to remember things. The video, which requires a little knowledge of Apple's short cuts, demonstrates how to easily create a daily note of things you want to remeber to do, using text or dictation input and how to organize them in a folder in Apple Notes. It also shows how to add the shortcut for "Remember This" and the Remember This Notes folder to your home screen as widgets. 

If it's a little overwhelming, but you are interested in the functionality - reach out to the office and they will find a Marin Village Tech Volunteer to assist you.
