Don’t Forget Where You Parked!

A close friend of mine taught me this neat trick with any smart phone that can drop “pins”. We used this trick with an iPhone in the maps app. You can pull up the map of where you currently are parking and tap the screen in the bottom corner. The screen will allow you to select the drop pin button. This will drop a pin at your location that can be retraced when you leave the building. This would be great after a sporting event, shopping at the mall, or for students that work at large complexes.

Add a Voiceover to Your Picture Slideshow

App Name: Videolicious

This is one of my favorite easy to use apps for presentations! Simply select the pictures you would like to show in your slide show then record a video of yourself giving them an introduction. After the introduction, the user selects the pictures to display for the show and talks about each image. The presentation is easy to use and looks professional. A great way to showcase your end of the semester talent.
