Consumer IT

Below are the consumer IT services I can provide, news, How to Guides and Tutorials for end users.


I’m happy to provide standard courses, bespoke courses or ad-hoc tuition. For more details of my courses please look at my Training section. These courses range for using free software to using mobile devices.


I am currently only offering training and not offering IT services for private consumers. The availability of services may change in future.

IT support

I the past I provided on-site support and basic system installation and repairs. In future I may include a wider range of IT support services to a wider range of private clients.

There are many smart phones and tablets available at the moment. However there are only really 2 types of smartphone common today. They are Android and iPhone (iOS).

Android phones have been available since the end of 2008 with version 1.0 of Android. The latest version is Android 9.0 with most phones still using using earlier versions. Android version are given sweet code names e.g. Nougat (v7.0 - v7.1). For more information on versions of Android look at the Wikipedia page on Android version history.
