Evernote: Once Burned, Twice Shy
by on October 6, 2010

Although this is my first official review of Evernote, it is not my first experience with it. Over the summer I used it for one class. It didn’t go well.

I liked the format, the Elephant logo, and the organization of notes. On that one fateful day, however, I almost gave up on Evernote for good.

Evernote Take One

I was typing notes in class, paused … Read More

Note Taking App: A Tragedy
by on September 29, 2010

As a student, the most exciting possibility that the iPad held for me, other than eBooks, was note taking. I’ve always been a pen and paper student, and I always got weighted down by massive amount of paper.

I’ve done lots of searching for apps, and I’ve tried a few. Part of the problem is performing an actual trial. You need the environment of a class … Read More

Books on the iPad: Enriching the Reading Experience
by on September 17, 2010

I read a lot of books, both fiction (mysteries, science fiction, modern fiction, humorous fiction) and non-fiction (science and technology, history, politics, culture, religion). I still read a lot of them in print format, but more and more, I’m reading them on the iPad, in iBooks, Kindle and Kobo, depending on which app has available the particular book I’m interested in, in stock.

I’ve noticed that the iPad has changed my … Read More

The Great Textbook Challenge
by on September 15, 2010

I’d like to thank app developers for recognizing that students will get a great use out of textbook apps on iPad. I do ask, however, that they pick up the pace.

I’ll sum up my eTextbook experience with CourseSmart for you very quickly.

New Paper Copy in Bookstore: $119.10
Used Paper Copy in Bookstore: $89.35
EBook with CourseSmart on iPad: $38.08

Rain Rain Go Away: A Case Dilemma
by on September 8, 2010

I was heading to the traditional university bookstore last week, when I came across a problem of epic proportions.

I have been happily transporting my iPad in the stylish and classy DodoCase. It’s small, it’s unique, and it lends an air of old world sophistication to the new world tech. And let’s be honest, it goes perfectly with my designer handbag. (Ladies, you know what I’m talking about.)

And then … Read More

Meet The New Kid In Class
by on September 1, 2010

This summer I had the best day of my university career. It was the first day of a summer class, students were arriving and pulling out their Macbooks or other net books getting ready to take notes, and I watched them all anxiously.

After almost everyone had their computers set up, I reached into my small shoulder bag and put my iPad on the desk in front of me. … Read More
