METRONET "APPY" HOUR
Metronet "Appy" Hour session. Nine of us shared apps that we've found useful. Unfortunately, I brought my library branch's iPad with me to the session, and the Apple id wasn't what I thought it was, so I couldn't install any of these apps. But I did take notes on the library's iPad and here is the list of suggested apps in the order they were suggested:
Chinook Book: Not free. This is a coupon app.
Nexercise: A free exercise app. If you exercise enough, you get free gift cards.
Shazaam: This app identifies songs.
SoundHound: This app identifies songs and lyrics.
TrailMix: This is a music and pedometer app. It's not free.
Google Search: Features the google now location service.
PopBooth: This is a photobooth app.
apps gone free: This is a place to look for free apps.
free app magic: This is another place to look for free apps, mostly game apps.
Haiku Deck: "Presentation software to set your story free." Beautiful photographs to go with your presentation slides.
NPR Music: All the music and many interviews from NPR are on this app.
Color Splurge: This app adds color effects to your photos.
Leafsnap: This is an "electronic field guide" that identifies leaves.
Hungry Fish: This is a math game app for kids.
