Symbaloo Goes Mobile I’ve shared before how I use Symbaloo as a startup page for my computers. Rather than using bookmarks, I like the graphical approach that it offers to get to places I frequent daily. Very quickly. This is my own information portal. Yesterday, Symbaloo released an iOS / Android application that truly lets you take it all with you. Hopefully, there is a native iPad application in the works. At the bottom of the screen, you can share your webmix, search for others, or just share with friends. So, in terms of my own productivity, I really like this. At one time, I maintained a Student Reference Portal on a website. With the advent of 1:1 iPad / iPod / iPhone / Android / Mobile / BYO# programs, I see Symbaloo as offering an excellent resource. For a myriad of reasons, it’s worth the time to download the new mobile application, create yourself a Symbaloo account, add some tiles / tabs and check it out. Like this: Like Loading...

GoodReader for iPad review - Apple iPad Apps The iPad has been designed to do much more than the iPhone or iPod Touch and one of these functions is to cover the areas currently held by netbooks. This means it's easy to view and edit documents and other files including PDFs, Excel spreadsheets, photos and PowerPoint presentations, especially if you download editing apps such as Documents to Go. However, it's not always that easy to manage your files on the iPad, which is where GoodReader comes in. The first thing you'll need to do is set it up with your computer or online storage space so you can transfer files onto the iPad to view in GoodReader. When downloading files, you can choose what you'd like to download them as, for example, a Word doc could be downloaded as a PDF, Text, Word, HTML, PNG, RTF or Zip file Once you've chosen which you want to download, they'll appear in the recent downloads section in the right half of the application, and also in the My Documents section in in the right side of GoodReader.
