Evernote 7 Gets My Most Improved Player Award | iPad.AppStorm

Evernote 7 Gets My Most Improved Player Award | iPad.AppStorm | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology and More | Scoop.it

"Most users are satisfied with iOS 7 performance, but some iPhone and iPad owners have discovered the major update has impacted the speed of their devices. If you feel like iOS 7 has made your hardware slower than it was before the update, there are some changes you can make that will likely speed things up a bit. These tricks will make the biggest difference on older device hardware running iOS 7, so if your device feels a bit sluggish after updating take a moment to make a few settings adjustments. The first few tricks may also boost your battery life too…"

Melissa Marshall's insight:

Evernote has to be one of my favourite organisational apps. I am scanning documents into Evernote and using it as a diary - the hope is to run a paperless office at home in the near future (or only file those things that absolutely need paper copies). Evernote stores my stuff securely everywhere - all the images are searchable and you can tag items for easy searching. It is also a great app for student note taking and organisation.

New features with new iOS 7 come also with Evernote, so it is even more functional and easy to use.

TouchCast - Creating interactive video on the iPad

TouchCast - Creating interactive video on the iPad | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology and More | Scoop.it

TouchCast is an iPad app that I downloaded recently and have been exploring a bit over the last couple of weeks. It's not often an app come along which really shakes up and existing genre like video, but I think TouchCast does and in a way that can be very beneficial for learners.

Word Collage for iPad

Word Collage for iPad | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology and More | Scoop.it

"We have seen plenty of word collage creators online in the past. Word collages help you get a better understanding about the words that show up more often in a piece of text. Word Collage for iPad is a pretty cool application that helps you create your own word collages fast. Just enter some text or a URL, and the app does the rest for you."

Paula Jamieson's curator insight, October 15, 2013 9:18 PM

It doesn't seem that long ago that "Word Clouds" hit our computer screens in the shape of sites such as Worlde and Tagul etc but this app looks like it does the same for iPad. Again it comes down to "Purpose" - what are you using it for and how are you linking your Word Cloud with other apps etc? Otherwise this app is merely 'Substitution' on the SAMR model isn't it - a fancy list of words.
