The apps chosen were very impressive and mind-expanding.I was apprehensive as to my ability to navigate some areas of the program and succeed, but my confidence grew with each Thing.I have never blogged before, and I'm glad my first opportunity was such a wonderful experience. Thank you!

I use Apps Gone Free every day; oftentimes the first thing I do in the morning. There are a lot of productivity and gaming apps which I usually skip, but once in a while I check one out. I have found many music and health related apps through Apps Gone Free. It is a great way to discover new and interesting apps.

I have been a loyal use of Fooducate for a long time. I use it every time I shop, and tell others about it whenever the subject of helathy eating comes up. I also use Itranslate when needed. TEDtalks is loaded with a wealth of subjects to learn about it. This is one of my favorite places to go.
Even though six seconds doesn't seem very long, Vine appeals to me. I like the idea of capturing something that starts out as a germ of an idea, which then can grow because your brain has recorded it. Some of the best snapshots in my head are simply glimpses of something wonderful.
Hennepin County Library mobile app is something I use all the time. Someone can tell me about a great book they are reading, and I can look it up immediately. Useful too for checking my account or reserving a book. Very helpful in finding out what is happening at other librairies in the area.
Cam Me looks like fun and easiset to use. I've taken very few selfies, with most being deleted because of any number of flaws. I like the idea of being able to set the phone down for a selfie, or to even just wave. This app will help me preserve many special memories.
I always seem to have lists and reminders with me; in my purse, in my pockets, in the car, on the kitchen counter, etc. I really like Remember the Milk app. It will be so easy to have with me and be able to check what I need to do, and, what I've already accomplished. I can see myself using this and never missing a task or appointment.

The most useful app to me is the RedLaser. I already have something similar to this when I grocery shop, but it is limited to food. I have been looking for something else to be able to get more information on other products, especially to comparison shop. I will be able to put RedLaser to good use.

Just finished Thing 2. What a wealth of fun and useful information to get more out of my phone. The tips and techniques for the various applications encourage me to search the web more and to share what I discover with co-workers. I am anxious for my next incoming call as I have added new alerts. I can also tweak my photos of Y & Y; the most photogenic granddogs in the world!
