Free Apps

Wednesday on First Coast Connect, with Jacksonville again reeling from multiple homicides, including the shooting of an 11-month old, we spoke with local pastors John Guns and John Allen Newman as the city, once again looks for solutions to the violence. Rotary District Governor Marshall Butler joined the program to talk about the organization’s project to eradicate polio worldwide. Julie Handley, fundraiser chair of the Downtown Ecumenical Services Council, talked about the return of their fundraising event “Where’s Bubba?” Developer Zach Schwartz spoke about the new app he help create “intoGo,” which provides easy access to places and things to do on the First Coast.

Mike asks, "I use two desktop computers at work, and I’m starting to feel like having two keyboards and mice is taking up too much space on my desk. Is there any way I can use one keyboard and one mouse for both computers? Also, is there any app I can use to control my computer from my iPad?"

Thanks for your question, Mike. There are a couple methods to control two different computers from one keyboard and mouse: either with a cable or with software.

Jacksonville Public Library

The Jacksonville Public Library has launched a new free app that can be used to renew a book, place one on hold or download an e-book.

The JaxLibrary app was funded through a donation by the Friends of the Jacksonville Library. It can also be used  to check out upcoming events at an area library including programs for children, and computer literacy programs for adults.
