Teen Apps

Posted on

Check out the Apps store. I really like how they’re divided up into categorizes. (must be the librarian in me). Wendy shared this site: Apps that normally cost $ for FREE. I tried to share a variety of apps. Some would be for teen entertainment, some could be used for programs at the library, and some could be productive. Most of the Apps are free, unless otherwise noted. Some of the apps are for iphones, but can be used with ipads too.

Forever Drive: racing game
Glass Tower 3: Game that looks like Tetris – .$99
MASH: just what you think – $.99
Ant Smasher
Fruit Ninja: $.99
You Don’t Know Jack: Trivia
Teen Truth or Dare
Free Flow: puzzle game
Mad Libs: App free but you need to purchase the book

Helpful Apps:
Instagram : photos (just saw this via twitter this morning from Teen Librarian Toolbox – take your photos and create a bookmark)
Ringtone Maker: make any MP3 file your ringtone
Yalsa BookFinder: awards and booklists
Relax Waterfall: calming music
Songkick Concerts: keeps track of your favorite bans and their concerts

Could be used in Programs:
Manga Camera: Take a picture and change it into manga style
Instyle Hairstyle: use photos of yourself to test out hair styles of celebrities – could be used for an event before prom/homecoming

Prezi – same as on computer – use it to make presentations
Dropbox – same as on computer – save and retrieve your files from anywhere
iTranslate: translate into various languages instantly.
ibrainstorm: a cork board to “pin” sticky notes and create drawings
Learnist: remixing social media in a collaborative way
World Book: This day in history – list of historical events
Haiku Deck: use to create presentations

Mark Your Calendar for the Next Meeting:
