Thanks to everyone who joined us at NCLA! We’re so grateful for all of the friendly folks who presented and participated in our sessions, who came out for our social on Wednesday, and who stopped by and spun our prize wheel! We’ll be posting recaps of all of our #ncla13 sessions here on the blog, starting with Friday morning’s Share your app! panel.
Share your app!
We had great attendance bright and early Friday morning for the Share your app! panel. Here are some details about the apps and those who shared them!
Evernote and Skitch (presented by Emily King, UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries)
Evernote is a web based note-taking app that let you save just about anything and view it later on your computer, tablet,
or phone. Skitch extends the abilities of evernote to annotate images and pdfs you have saved in evernote. Emily shared information about how she uses Evernote and Skitch to collect information and track projects.

MagLight (presented by Holly Mabry, NCKNOWS)
MagLight is an app that magically turns your device into a magnifier. Both the free and pro versions make it possible for your iPhone/iPad to magnify small text with an adjustable zoom and image capture. There was a lot of audience interest in this app, and luckily Holly will be leading a webinar for TNT in early 2014 (details to come) about assistive technology.
