23 library things 23

I am not a big user of apps and I don't find myself using the new ones I have discovered. I use Pinterest for library ideas. I scan twitter for the most recent news. I like games but they take up too much of my time. If I were a big app user I would use the site that offers free trials.
23 mobile things was ok, but I was bored with the redundancy of each thing...use this would you use it personally or professionally. I enjoyed the original 23 things I participated in, perhaps because the computer was so new to me, and there was so much variety of experiences.
But, all in all, good to know so many apps are at our fingertips.

I selected Appsgone free. It has received excellent reviews. I like it, too. It's a good idea to let people try the apps before they decide to make a purchase. I downloaded cross fingers, and again, time slipped away quickly playing the game. I'm not big into apps, but may peruse Appsgonefree on a rainy day.

I haven't used many apps. One that may be new to some is BookMyne. I can use it to access my library account. A different format than our library catalog.

I've been playing WordCollapse for two hours and my eyes are blurry!! These games can be an addiction!

App MyGarden and Knitting by Craftsy speak to my interests. You have to pay for most of the knitting patterns, but there are a few freebies. I will probably use this app to look for patterns.  I'm an avid gardener, but not sure I will use the MyGarden app. Not sure I like the format.

Bill NYE the science guy was my app choice. Our summer reading program theme is science related so I thought this might be a useful site. Yes, there were 6 simple science experiments that we could use in a program! Endless number of apps! Overwhelming! I use Wikipedia a lot so will use that app, too. When I have a question, there lies the answer.

Of the apps listed I have only used the Mn 511 for road conditions. I added the MPR app because I listen to it on the radio frequently. I like the alarm feature.
