20% off of $50 and $100 iTunes gift cards at Staples


One of the best ways to say a little money on the iTunes stores is to buy discounted gift cards. Today, Staples is selling the $50 iTunes gift card for $40 and the $100 iTunes gift card for $80 with free shipping. According to the product info page, the sale will last till Jan 23rd. I have known these sales to end early. If you buy anything through the iTunes stores, pick one or more of these gift cards up and enjoy a 20% discount on your next app purchase.

Mini’app’les Meeting, Tuesday Jan 19 at 7:00 p.m., Q&A at 6:30 p.m.


The next Mini’app’les meeting is Tuesday, January 19th, the third Tuesday of the month, at the Hackfactory (3119 E. 26th Street Minneapolis, MN 55406). At 6:30 p.m., members of the board and other knowledgable people will be available if you have specific questions you would like answered. We will do our best to address your question and help you troubleshoot the issue.

At 7:00 p.m., we will look at using iOS devices for maps and navigation. Yes, Siri can easily get you to someplace just by asking. “Give me directions to the nearest coffee shop” for example. Or “give me directions home”. But what if you want to create a GPS trail, or go hiking with topo map, or want to see gas prices along your route? Fortunately there are other options out there for you than just the built-in Maps app. A few different Mini’app’les members will share their experience with solving these and other navigation tasks. 

We look forward to seeing you there.
