At a festive-themed iPAD coffee club we explored some of the 12 apps of Christmas recommended by the Dublin Institute of Technology.
Andrew O’Malley has tweeted further details of apps recommended in response to various questions raised during the session.
OneNote was suggested for managing notes, and can include photos of handwritten notes and audio recordings.
After the recent update to iOS 9, the iPad Notes app has a number of new features. Documents such as pdfs can now be added to Notes, along with links to websites and maps. It’s also possible to set up a check list, use the sketch tool, and include images.
Office Lens is an app that can be used to scan documents, and includes character recognition so that scanned text can be exported to Word and edited. Note that you will need to search for this an iPhone app in the store.
GoodNotes was suggested for hand-writing notes and annotations on an iPad.
Pocket is a useful app for capturing and organising content found online in order to read it later, including when you are offline.
