It’s not impossible when you know the right app . . .
This is a guest post by Dr. Carmen Burkhalter–
I have often told my friends and family I hope I never have to live without an iPad. iPad technology seems to hide the nuts and bolts of coding and makes working so simple. Even modern computers don’t have the same level of simplicity I find myself enjoying these days. My only complaint has been that I can’t do all my work on the iPad. Well, the outstanding employees of eTech have listened to me complain about this until they were fed up. They then countered by challenging me to create problems for them to solve. My first complaint was that although the remote desktop app LogMeIn is a great program, it’s completely dependent upon my computer being on and having power. This drives me crazy especially when I am trying to find a work file at odd hours of the day, or if I would need to access files after a storm had knocked out power to our building. Today, Jason Miller in eTech showed me the app Files Connect. This app is fabulous. I can now access all of my H-drive or S-drive files even if my office computer is powered off. I am thrilled. All I can say is eTech 1 – Carmen Burkhalter 0. Stay tuned. I’ll update you on the score as we go on.
