In the spirit of the season, here are some iPad apps of possible interest to SLAW readers:
- Dragon Dictation: I am excited to "train" this new version of Dragon Dictation for the iPad but have been too busy to do so. I have heard good things. I remember trying version 1 of Dragon Dictation on what I think back then was a 486 computer. One assumes this new version will work more smoothly.
- UTL Mobile App: Perhaps of more interest to those in the Toronto area is the free University of Toronto mobile app, which allows for searching of the university catalogue (among other things).
- iPad Games for Sale: I am not sure how much longer these sales will last, so act quickly. Both EA Games and Gameloft have hugely discounted prices on their iPad Games.
- Flipboard: Although I don’t follow Facebook or Twitter, I still found Flipboard useful and well designed (it won iPad’s App of the Year and is free). As described on iTunes:
Flipboard is a fast, beautiful way to flip through the news, photos and updates your friends are sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader and Flickr. See your social media in a magazine layout that is easy to scan and fun to read. Share articles and photos, comment on posts, and like or favorite anything. Customize your Flipboard with sections created from your favorite people, lists, groups and blogs on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Google Reader.
