This month we have Francine Lynch returning to get us thinking about fitness again in the new year.  As an experienced fitness instructor teaching classes for the last 32 years, she has some great ideas for stretching and light exercise you can do in your home using nothing but a chair and some light weights such as cans of food.  Attendees are welcome to bring cans of food to the meeting which we will collect and donate to a local food pantry afterward.  As always, Francine will set her routines to some fun music.  Regular loose-fitting clothing is recommended - she won’t be doing anything that strenuous.

Please join us Saturday, Jan 13 at 10:00 am at the Carrollton Josey Ranch Lake library branch (1700 Keller Springs Rd, Carrollton) in the main meeting room at the front of the library on the left after you enter.  We will have Zoom available again for joining virtually, if you can’t make it in person.  We will start with Lawrence's AI SIG at 10, followed by the Main Meeting at 11, and wrap up with Jonesy’s Mac Help Desk SIG from noon to 1pm.

For All Us “Techies"

Lawrence Jenkins gave a great talk on LumaFusion and Synology at our July 2022 virtual meeting (see Recorded Presentations above).

Taylor Sharpe made some excellent additional comments about Synology devices, for those considering purchasing, which can be read here. (Thanks to Ray Thompson for keeping us all informed!)

Once A Month Meetings

Our Apple User Group meets once a month, usually the second Saturday. We usually have new topics to talk about each month, guest speakers and presenters, and other helpful insights.

A Note From the President

At The Apple Corps of Dallas we are always learning, teaching and sharing! Bring your questions and share them with the group. There are no wrong questions. Feel free to share your digital problems. Someone in the group usually has the answer. If we are not able to answer the questions during this session, unanswered questions carry over to future meetings.

Some of our past diverse topics have covered Health & the Apple Watch, creating a “Hackintosh”, Video Editing and Sharing, Photo Techniques, iCloud, FileMaker Pro, Creating Exciting Keynote Presentations, and Drones.

About Us

The Apple Corps of Dallas

Helping Others Since 1978

The Apple Corps of Dallas (ACD) is the oldest Apple Computer User Group still in operation, established in January of 1978.

Our members are primarily from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex area. Our aim is to provide you with the latest information on your Apple device, to offer help in solving problems, to present forums for discussion, and to provide insight on the ever expanding world of technology.

Don’t have a Mac? No problem! We also assist users who have iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches. In fact, owning an Apple product is not even necessary to be a member.
