Training started last week for teachers at schools that received iPads. Teachers were very excited and will start using them with their students in January. Other teachers already have an iPad for personal use or have one on their wish list for Christmas.
I will begin posting some great apps I have come across and hope you will share any others you may have. Just leave a comment to this post and we will be able to share.
The first app is AppShopper. AppShopper keeps you up to date on the newest App Store apps, sales and freebies. Organize apps in your own customized Wish List and automatically get notified when there is a sale or an app becomes FREE.
Evernote is an easy-to-use, free app that helps you remember everything across all of the devices you use. Stay organized, save your ideas and improve productivity. Evernote lets you take notes, capture photos, create to-do lists, record voice reminders–and makes these notes completely searchable, whether you are at home, at work, or on the go.
Remotely access your PC or MAC from your iPhone or iPad. You can view and edit files without syncing and also use all of the programs on your desktop computer or laptop from your iPad.
This app usually costs around ten dollars but I got it for ninety-nine cents by watching AppShopper. For another ninety-nine cents I could access my home computer from anywhere. I didn’t purchase that option because I didn’t see a need for it yet.
