iPhone screenshotApps4Academics: iPhone/iPad apps & mobile web sites for academic life

Monday, February 28: 12-1:30pm in 14N-132

Register for class

In this whirlwind show & tell, we will recommend the best iPhone/iPad apps & mobile web sites for use in your academic life. We’ll demo apps for productivity, library research, note-taking, e-reading, PDF-reading & annotating, sketching, and more. Some apps we’ll demo include Evernote, Instapaper, Dropbox, GoodReader, Papers, Wolfram Alpha, PLoS, ACS Mobile, and WorldCat Mobile. We’ll point you to the best apps and mobile sites, and also ask class members to also share their favorite apps. If you’re thinking about getting an iPhone or iPad, this may help you decide how you might use it. The class is 90 minutes, and will include break-out sessions where each small group will discuss the apps they find useful and report back to the larger group. We will have several iPads available for use during the breakout sessions. If you have an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad that you use for academic work, we invite you to bring it and share your knowledge with the group. Feel free to bring your lunch!
