Apps @ Work issue fix

Attention all Lynn Students!!!!!

Last week during our InfoSHOP iPad sessions, some students reported that some of the apps in Lynn’s Apps @ Work were going to charge them money to download apps such as Notability, Panopto, & Inspiration Maps on your Lynn issued iPad. All these apps are prepaid… if this happens to you, there’s an easy fix:

1. Attempt to download an App enrolled in the VPP program.
2. On the next screen, you’ll see the App description and a blue bar like what is pictured in this attachment. If there is a price listed there, rather than touch “Buy,” tap “Learn More”
3. A drop down will appear where you will see “Enroll Now”
4. Tap “Enroll Now” and type in your AppleID username and password. After you enter your AppleID username and password, the app then becomes prepaid and can be downloaded for free.

You should not be prompted again once you go through this process once. Any other apps should show up as “Prepaid” after this process has been done. Any questions contact IT Support Services.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholar, Civil Rights Activist, & Minister

Growing up, Martin Luther King, Jr. was a very bright student. King skipped ninth and 12th grades in high school and entered Morehouse College in Atlanta at age 15.

When he was 19, he graduated from Morehouse College in Atlanta with a BA degree in Sociology. In 1951, he graduated from the Crozer Theological Seminary with a BA of Divinity, which qualified him to become a pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church.

King also received his Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Boston University in 1955. From 1957 until his death in 1968, King gave over 2,500 speeches; he traveled more than 6 million miles; and he wrote five books and countless articles published in newspapers and magazines. In 1964, at age 35, King was the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
