Other sites to find apps?

What about apps that you've found or liked so far?


Mark's quick list to go over:
Dropbox is a Must for me! Save your documents in the cloud. No more e-mailing big files, just invite people to a shared folder.
Voicethread app. Use your iPad to get pictures, then record student voice and/or annotations for a Digital Story.
Evernote app. Keep all of your notes and podcasts here and online with one account.
Splashtop Remote Desktop and Whiteboard (Both pay, not free)
Others?

Session Evaluation. Please take a few minutes for feedback before you leave.
Thanks for a great day. Before you leave make sure you get your iPad and charger with your box. Please give these to your Tech Person tomorrow to inventory and set up for your district. Write down any apps that you liked and will want to use again just in case they are erased.
