What Is MUO All About?
Founded in 2006, MakeUseOf’s mission is to teach the world how to use and understand technology. Our staff is made up of technology enthusiasts who provide tech tips, tricks, explainers, advice, and more; readers should take something practical away from every article. Unlike industry sites that cater to technology insiders, we make tech accessible and approachable to everyone.
Whether you’re interested in Android apps, understanding macOS, learning how to program, or increasing your personal productivity, you’ll find a wealth of guides written by experts as if they’re explaining something to a friend. Our articles provide clear instructions with no fluff, along with helpful images and links for further reading.
