This Month's General Meeting:

Meeting Date: Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at 6:30PM

Apple’s WWDC 2022, Free Movie Streaming Platforms, Flipboard, Camo and a Homemade iPhone App

NJMUG is back in our fifth live meeting of the year at the Clifton Allwood Library. Our meeting on Tuesday June 21st is in our old room and starts at 6:30PM. We will require seeing your Covid Vaccination card and the library insists on everyone being masked throughout the meeting so if that's OK with you, we would love to see you there.

As there were only a few people attending May’s meetings we would appreciate knowing if you’re planning on attending the June meeting, or for that matter, NJMUG meetings in the future. It takes a lot of knowledgeable manpower to be able to answer your tech questions and to prepare our monthly presentations of the latest and greatest apps, hardware and services. Without your support we may not be able to continue these monthly programs.

At this months meeting Bruce Mittelman will share the news from Apple’s WWDC 2022, which included both hardware and software releases. The new versions of all of the OS’s have some incredible features that will impact the way we use our devices and Bruce can’t wait to share them with you. - Who doesn’t like a good movie? Bruce will share some streaming apps, such as Plex, that allow you to watch movies free of any charges. Get the popcorn and drinks ready.

As online meetings become the norm, many of us use our Mac or PC’s built in camera for FaceTime, Zoom, Skype or any of a number of on-line meeting platforms. The problem is that our Macs only have a 720p resolution, unless you are using a new M1 based Mac. Meanwhile, way back when, the iPhone 5 introduced 1080p and iPhone 7 introduced 4K. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could use your iPhone as your webcam? Well you can with Reincubate’s Camo. Mark Astmann will demonstrate how to set up and use your iPhone with a Mac for online meetings. - Mark will also demonstrate an App he has written to gather the information you need for restaurants, hotels, shops and services you plan to use when going on vacation.

These days it feels like we are tuned to the news almost constantly. There are many great apps that help you read the news and Scot Alenick will share one of his favorites, Flipboard which promises, "One place for all the stories you care about.” Flipboard allows you to fine tune your news feeds so you get just the information you want.

Trying to find the best tool to get a bunch of people organized and sharing knowledge can be a pain. Google Groups can feel exceedingly complicated. Facebook cares little about your privacy. is a modern platform for serious communities. Powerful management tools, mobile ready with no ads, no tracking. Catherine Mascis will be sharing how she uses this on-line platform.

As a reminder, we start off each meeting with a general Q&A where some of our best minds help solve problems you’re having with your Apple gear. We hope to see you at the next meeting.
