2 Useful University Apps

Quick Voice Recorder is the most popular, full-featured iPhone voice recorder available.  With QuickVoice you can record voice notes, reminders, dictations, meetings, interviews, shopping lists, to do lists, and even entire lectures and multi-session seminars.  Quick Voice Recorder automatically saves your recordings in the category you select along with the date/time stamp and also allows you to email recordings.  It’s a very useful app for students as well as teachers.  This app is free on the iPad.

Jot! is a white board app that allows users to collaborate in real time.  Jot! allows you to free-hand draw with your finger or stylus or you can add text with just a tap.  You can copy and paste lines, change their color, or delete them altogether.  You can save your Jot! to your photo library and email or print your creation.  When you open a blank sheet, you have a side panel with a few options.  Pick a color and start drawing, if you mess up, you can either use the eraser, or just delete the lines you don’t like.  You can grab a line by touching and holding for a second.  An edit panel will appear that allows you to move the line, drag it to the garbage, copy it or change the color.  Once you are finished with your doodle, or whatever you are creating, you can start a new one and the old one will be automatically saved within the app.  If you are ready to send your work of art to someone, you have the option of sending it as a “jot” file, a PDF or an image.  This app cost 4.99 but there is also a free iPad version which allows you to collaborate on projects as well.
