Library App with AppShed
According to the AppShed website, "AppShed allows people to become creators of technology, not just consumers. AppShed is a FREE online app-creation tool where users design, create and publish mobile apps. Everyone gains a huge sense of achievement, having been able to produce something tangible they can share with others. The app-building environment is intuitive and adaptable to your needs. Apps can be tested in real-time either on a mobile device or in a browser."

The main reason why I love this service is that teachers can create a folder (or shed) with all the apps that they use in their classrooms in one convenient package - and they do not need to know how to code. In fact, no technical knowledge is required to use AppShed.

I recently created an AppShed with some library-related material, including shortcuts to our library website, this blog, Noodletools (for creating citations), and the school's Twitter feed. I am still deciding which apps to include in this package. I am taking your suggestions and it will soon be available for the masses to download. Stay tuned!
