Learning a New OS

My first smart phone was an iPhone and my screen looked like this –

I love my iPhone Apps

I loved it and slowly learned how to use it by watching others use theirs, asking questions of friends who had iPhones, asking questions on Google, and, as a last resort, looking it up in a manual I’d bought. Eventually, I got pretty good – by which I mean I could do what I wanted with my phone, (and impress my friends!) I began to have some frustration with  3 year my provider, so I switched to a new provider and an Android phone, which looked almost the same as my Apple iPhone screen –

I moved smoothly onto my Galaxy S2, finding it very similar  to my iPhone. Meanwhile I kept reading about new operating systems for Android phones. I wanted to upgrade, so I asked and searched, and found myself frustrated. After a number of unsuccessful attempts to upgrade the Android OS, it finally happened –

Almost as soon as the new OS was installed, I changed the background. I’d figured out how to do that with my iPhone and my previous Galaxy2 OS, and I could do it in the Settings in the same way. (I like having a picture I’ve taken as the background) However, much was different as I played with this new OS called Jelly Bean. Slowly I am trying out various things and seeing what happens now. This is how I, and many others, learn in this ever-changing, constantly up-dating environment. Just keep trying and and watching what happens, and trying again. Eventually, you learn what you want or need to do. And/or you learn more about how to learn!
