For iOS 16


If you’re new to or thinking about getting an iPhone, you may be wondering, as I was at one time, “How, exactly, can a person who can’t see a screen use a device whose primary input surface is one?”

In this guide, I will teach you the basics to getting started with A Blind Legend.
If this is your first time playing, you may be looking for a guide to get you started, on your way, and finish the game. Here are some things you need to know first:
1. Levels start out easy, but then start to get harder. Usually, the harder scenes occur at about Scene 10.

Hello again,
I'm back with another a blind legend guide. So lets begin.
The goal of scene 15 is to deflect the archer's poisoned arrows with your blade and fight two monsters.
So lets begin.
Follow Louise till you reach the section where the game plays on auto. Louise will get shot in the leg and then Blake automatically will draw his sword.
In order to block the arrows you will need to swipe in the direction the arrow is coming from. Using your shield will not do anything, unless you would like to sit there with you shield up all day. LOL

Your daughter has took a poisoned arrow from Scene 15. She cannot tell you or lead you to places. You only have a man.

The man leads you to the forest, saying that he can't go with you any further and gives you instructions to follow the song and that it will guide you to a demon's lair. More information about the demon from the man is from Scene 16.

In this tutorial, I will walk you through getting past Scene 8. For days and even months, I've been struggling to pass by Scene 8 and continue. But the thing I realized, was that you didn't have to keep swiping left multiple times or swiping right multiple times. This would cause me to crash into. obstacles. This guide helps you. "Guide me! Through the trees!" Edward Blake first says. You will get instructions saying to swipe in the direction pointed by your daughter to avoid obstacles. Note: This scene has lots of action so prepare your fingers.

EveryCord is a new screen recorder for iOS 11 that allows you to record your device's screen. You used to have to jailbreak or get some app that allowed access to it, but now that iOS 11 supports screen Recording, it is now in the App Store.


The first time you open EveryCord, make sure to read what it says right next to the Recordings button.

Other than the Recordings button, there is a Settings button which is unlabeled.

Public libraries are providing more and more of their content in a digital format. For libraries, it saves on space and staff time, and providers are stepping up to deliver video, music, eBooks and audiobooks electronically.

Why it works

libraries purchase collections from a provider. This gives their patrons the ability to "borrow" content using a computer or mobile device. When the loan period is over, the content is automatically "returned". For example, if you check out an eBook, it becomes available on your device for reading immediately.

Note October 17, 2016: a new and updated guide on iOS text editors is now available here.

Post Date: Saturday, March 12, 2016

Quick Notes

This guide was submitted when Garageband's interface was still based on iOS 7/8/9's iCloud Drive app, when the Files app never existed, and you had to have your files saved in iTunes File Sharing to access them.

This is no longer the case, so I've updated the guide based on its new interface.

Start of the Guide

In this guide, I'll be explaining the process of making ringtones using the GarageBand app.

No computer is necessary, and it can completely be done by only using 2GB, meaning GarageBand's estimated size.

Starting in iOS 10, a new way exists through the actions rotor to move apps around your various home screens. While the old method is still available, the new way of accomplishing this task seems to be preferred by many. In iOS 11, it then became possible to drag multiple apps at the same time. The below process was written for iOS version 12.1, and if the instructions do not work as outlined below, chances are good you are not running that version of iOS.

As I don't know how to create podcasts yet here is a basic guide on how to use and enjoy Traveler's Quest.

First it may be a good idea to contact the developer of this app thanking them for such an accessible app so hopefully it stays that way.

Before writing this guide, I had searched the Applevis site about this topic. According to the threads I have read, some people are having difficulties making this feature work.

This guide will not make your raise to record feature work consistently because to tell you guys honestly, that feature is a hit and miss, more often the latter. So without further ado, here are the steps.

Note: This tip only works on the Messages app, so if you are trying to do this on the quick reply view, this is not going to work.

Can My iOS Device Be a GPS?

Probably. If you have an iPhone or a cellular-capable iPad, then you can start using GPS apps right away. Owners of wifi-only iPads or all iPod Touch models do not have this luxury.
