thermostat that works with Iphone

Kay Malmquist
 

Hi all,
It looks like one of our talking Thermostats has died at least on the AC side of things.  So now, if there is no fix to it, we'd like to get a good Thermostat that works through WI-Fi or homekit or something like that.  I know there has been a lot of discussion but you know how it is when you know that this will happen but sometime in the future.  Yes, I somewhat paid attention but not fully.  Any recommendations as to what is best and what I should invest in?  It can even be used with the A lady but I really want to be able to access it with my iPhone even from another place.  Any ideas are appreciated.

Don't say that? Why not? You're in good company! I've been falling asleep to a book all day. Pam.

Akshaya, I have you to thank for giving me a chance to try to help. I'm not
into Facebook or Instagram per se, but both may be calling out for me and if
I can take off my headset, I'll probably hear their voices!

In any case, as I prepare to launch a new online storefront, I'm seriously
considering getting the business shoved off to Facebook Shop, Instagram and
a few other platforms. Whether or not I'll get any real results, no idea;
but, since I love to tinker, playing with the thought and actualising it
might not be too bad.

As for my sarcasms, that's been my lifeblood! Even though it gets me in
trouble now and then, I believe that learning is more fun if we can get a
good laugh as part of the process. So, let the learning continue, and let's
have more fun doing it.

With that, I go back to facing the book I've been trying to read though I
keep falling asleep! But, sheesh, please don't tell anyone I said that.
Take care and all the very best!

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado

Hi friends

I just opened an instangram account.

I have a lot of family on it.

Here is the thing, I need to know, learn how to use it.

Smile

Does anyone have a tutorial on how to use it, with voice over?

Advice about tripods for newer iPhone models, please

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

I have a tripod I sometimes use with my old iPhone 5s. I tried to get my XR into it, but either it's so difficult or impossible. Should I get another tripod that will work? I like to have my hands- free for things like making videos and Be My Eyes.

Thanks,

i don't know about other companies but sandisk has flash drives just for phones. They have others for phone or camera.

A search on amazon will find them.

Has anyone used this apple lightning to USB adapter, in order to connect USB flash drives and other accessories to your iPads or iPhones? The link is:

I did read for connecting some accessories, you have to first plug the adapter into the iPad or iPhone, then into a USB hub, and then plug the flash drive or whatever you want to use into the USB hub and then it will work. My last question is, will the iPad let you manage such drives such as formatting as fat32, etcetera?

Thanks for a prompt response. I have no news for Windows and NVDA.
However, for use in Android Land, please consider giving SocialOne a good
whack! Grab it from this URL:

SocialOne might be the only client app you need for Facebook, Instagram and
Twitter. It is a free app; whack it hard and make it your friend.

Hope this info is helpful; take care.

I’m not sure, but I think the newer generation iPads are more flexible with connecting flash drives.

Hi Melissa,

Gold Wave will do the trick for you. I use Karaoke files and some of
them are not in an optimal key for me. I use the pitch change option
under the effects menu (alt + C for effects menu followed by P for pitch
change.) You can either change by percentage or by tone. The tone
change is most intuitive. They give you 4 choices for semi-tone: C to B
(down one half step.) C to C Sharp (up one half step) C to D (up one
step.) and D to C (down one step.) They also give you choices for up
one octave or down one octave and if you want an odd number of step
change such as a minor third (up/down one and a half steps,) you can use
the half step up/down item to move the desired number of steps.

Good luck.

GoldWave, is, of course, purchased software. Audacity, the free, reasonably accessible, audio editing software will do the trick just fine.

Hello guys,
Are there any accesssible third party clients for Facebook and Instagram, like there is TwBlue for twittter?
All suggestions are welcome.

I have used GoldWave to perform the pitch change task.
