So far, 2014 hasn't been the best year for my family health wise. Three days into the new year, my son broke his wrist while in a snowboarding lesson. Last week, I was hospitalized for two days because of a bad reaction to a new medication.
Through these two health emergencies, I noticed something in common with the different hospitals we visited; they both used iDevices as part of their care. While using iDevices is nothing new to the healthcare industry, I still found it interesting.
If you've purchased a new iDevice, the good news is that you don't have to set it up from scratch if you are replacing an older device. One of my favorite things about owning Apple products is the simplicity in which transferring content can be done. As long as you back up your previous device using either iCloud or iTunes, your new device can be synced with all your content, including saved messages, email accounts, photos, notes, and other personal settings.

Besides the convenience, I think the best part about my iPhone's camera is the ability to quickly edit the pictures I've taken.
To edit a photo, go to your Camera Roll and select the photo you would like to spruce up. Tap on Edit in the upper right corner of your screen. Here you'll be given several tools to edit your photo.
The various edit options (from left to right on the bottom of your screen) allows you to rotate your photo, auto-enhance it, choose different filters, remove red-eye, or crop your photo.
I recently went through the horror of fraud on one of my credit cards. Thankfully, it was caught quickly, but it has been a pain to replace it and enter my new credit card number at all the e-retailers' sites where I routinely make purchases.
After reading a new report from Dashlane, a password manager company, I'm confident, out of all the e-retailers I use, my new credit card will be carefully guarded on Apple's site.
I'm not your stereotypical woman when it comes to watching football. Instead of dreading football season, I sit next to my husband on the couch every Sunday watching the game, sometimes even yelling louder than he is.
This football season has even been more fun for me, since my favorite team is playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday. I live in Colorado, so take a guess who I'm rooting for!
If you're also a football fan and are as excited about the big game as I am, you might want to download some apps to enjoy the experience even more.
Here are five Super Bowl apps to check out.
If you like to take photos with your iDevice, your Camera Roll is full of pictures. If you want to find one picture in particular, maybe that cute photo of your dog playing in the snow, or maybe a photo that captured your grandma's charm at Christmas, it may take you awhile to scroll through all the photos to find it.
There is an easy solution to this problem. You can organize all the photos in your Camera Roll by creating Albums.
I have a friend who has several hundred photos on her iPhone 5. She's been taking photos on her phone since last summer and has never exported any of them. She's running out of room to take more. The other day she asked me how to get the photos from her phone to her computer.
She's never connected her iPhone to her computer, instead choosing to upgrade her operating system and download apps wirelessly.
There are a variety of ways to export photos, most of them depending on what kind of computer you have and what operating system you are running.
Here I'll explain ways to export your photos and videos from your iDevice to your computer:
