thing 10 = Instagram

I signed up for Instagram and took a picture of my beloved Glasgow Library card.  I used the Kelvin treatment for the photo because Kelvin begins the name of the Kelvingrove Art Museum in Glasgow.  I am using the library's iPad, so I don't want to link the Instagram account I created to my personal facebook account.  But I will probably add the Instagram app to my own iPad when I get home tonight.

Thing 9 = LINE camera

I am excited to try the LINE camera app. I read it over, took my picture (I am on telephone reference this morning), added some text, and viola! Very simple, I know, but I can see that this app could be very useful. I just have to figure out how to print from the library's iPad, and then I can make fliers, etc.

Thing 8 = Twitter

The Social Media Management Tool I selected for Thing 8 is Twitter. I enjoy using Twitter myself on my personal iPad. I am mostly a follower although I occasionally tweet. My favorite things about Twitter: Following Scottish authors and breweries & finding out about current events long before I read about them in the newspaper. I also like to put pictures on Twitter when I am traveling. And I love to make up hashtags--that's fun! The two disadvantages for me personally with Twitter are that I don't have a smart phone so I can't live tweet when I am at a conference or event, and I am not "allowed" to be on my personal Twitter account when I am at work, so I can't use Twitter in a "professional" capacity.

Thing 7 = Pinterest

Oh, yes, I am going to revisit my Pinterest account and see if I can make a board for an upcoming trip and for my storytime work. I hadn't considered using Pinterest in this way before the 23 mobile things, so thanks!

Thing 6 = Quickoffice

I tried Quickoffice for thing 6. After I watched the instructional video, I watched the most disgusting moments from here comes honey boo boo. I enjoyed that. I created a document and looked at some old documents from my google drive. I might use this app if I don't have access to a computer and want to share documents and photos.

Thing 5 = remember the milk

I tried remember the milk because the name is cute. I added a few things to my lists. I watched the video. I don't think I will use this app much because I am not using my personal iPad at work and don't get to use the work iPad enough to bother keeping lists on it.

Thing 4 = Flipboard

I watched the video about Flipboard and added the app. It had some bad news for me today: Mavis Gallant has died. Flipboard is a good way for me to look at all the things I like to read by putting them all in the same place.
