Your App Lady 

Show Notes

Series 1 Episode 16

Welcome to series 1 episode 16 of the Your App Lady Podcast!

All about apps and tech that I love and use every day.

On each episode, I’ll talk about recent tech news, recommend apps that I use myself and leave you with a great tech tip.

Tech News

Swype, a keyboard app, is gone.  Swype was a popular Android app that allowed you to type by swiping your fingers across the keyboard. This gesture typing app had been extremely popular, particularly for users with special needs and was easy to use with one hand.

LifeHacker suggests that Android users who liked Swype use SwiftKey or the default Google keyboard. For iOS, iPad and iPhone users they suggest SwiftKey or Google’s Gboard. All of these apps offer swipe typing and predictive text.

App of the Week: Last Pass 

LastPass is available for iOS (iPhones and iPads), Android, and on web browsers.

LastPass is a password storage vault. LastPass generates and stores unique passwords for all your logins. It can also be used to automatically fill in online forms. LastPass allows you to share passwords for single websites with your family or coworkers without jeopardizing security for other sites.

Tech Tip

Moving your landline number to a mobile phone is possible! This is great news for me as we are about to (finally) get rid of our landline. If you are staying in the same area, your cellphone carrier can move your landline number over to mobile for you. You are also able to move or “port” your mobile number to a new cell services.
