Deck Slideshow - Presentation

easy and could be used on something as simple as a picture show. 
Like the availability of graphs, grids, etc.  It could be an easy way to show trends within our library, or for more simple things - like the photo slideshow.
That reminds me, I should check out IRFanview for an App.  I use that program all the time

Free Books - how can you go wrong?

I now have the Free Books App.  How can I go wrong?
I love classics, some of my favorites are classics.
I can imagine that this will be my favorite app - once 23 things are done.
Right now, i do not feel like i have the time I want to enjoy it.  The only thing I am a little concerned about is the small size of the screen.  But i can see that this could be really handy once I find certain passages.  If I can mark the page, it is something to show a kid or teen - and give them a chance to be entranced by the same characters and situations that I found so wonderful - both then and now.
now to give all the newbie vampire-wanna-be's the phrase: Listen to the children of the night...

Library & Reference

Have had Anoka County Library app loaded since day one.  Got to see what is happening - as well as watch for those books I want.
Accessing my account is easy, and I tend to notice things that are happening at other branches - while I miss looking for them when I am at work.  How sad is that!

Photos on Pinterest

Still having loads of fun on Pinterest.  Have posted photos there.  Some old, some new.  Its fun to see how fast others like or re-pin them.  Too much fun!  I have to be careful, i can get lost in posting and finding other pictures.  It feeds my soul.  Foxes are a passion, as well as bats and bat things.  And i have gotten my best friend and my husband looking too.  I an see how this will help them see what I have in some collections.  That is my goal - make a board per collection.   Its all good!

23 mobile things

Cannot believe how much time has past.
My branch is being renovated and I have been too busy to play much.
Played with Color Splurge, did not like the results - but then i take photos to remember what i saw.
will have to take pictures just to play with.

Instagram or Snapchat!?
That's it?
Neither would be my normal choice.
For the sake of the event, I choose Instagram as the lesser of evils.
I have heard too many bad things about Snapchat.  I just don't want to go there.
It is installed.  I'll have to see how hard it is to use.
Oh well, in the mean time, back to Pinterest!
See you around the fox boards!
Ok! installed Photo Editor and Color Splurge.
Photo Editor will take practise.  I see that.
Color Splurge queued my anti virus right away, but I installed.
Only to have it fail right away.  It is now uninstalled.  I don't need to be dealing with those problems.
One of the things I have found that I do not like: you must be connected to the internet to use some of these apps.  I like the ones where I don't have to be.  I go to many areas where I don't have access.

Photo Editor will come in very handy, especially as I tend to get some pix with the wrong contrast or resolution.  Wahoo!
