Show + Tech: apps we love!

Ahh February - the month of of Apps that is! Kicking off the SIM Centre's Show + Tech series of 2011, our Valentine-themed: "Apps we Love." Luring presenters with free candy, we hosted a slew of 2 minute presentations about favourite Apps for every device. A whole lot of sharing and geeking out, some of the highlights:

: a social networking App for iPhone that lets you tag photos and see your (select) friends' photos a well!

Reactable: an interactive music-making beat-box table that, when played with, can create endless music and sounds, not to mention the awesome graphics. 

Pulse: a free news reader for iPad. This easy to use interface lets you customize and share with a simple tap.

TeuxDeux:a great design-y schedule for your web browser. Drag and drop to keep everything timely and organized. The iPhone App is 2.99$ so you can sync your desktop and iPhone on the go!

HeadsUp: 4th Year Emily Carr Student Shelagh McLellan is designing an App for youth in transition into adulthood. Heads Up will be used as a touchpoint between patients and doctors in hospitals. A fun and interactive user-interface lets teens get comfortable with answering some of the harder questions. (Shelagh needs someone to write her App! Any takers?! Shoot her an email).

Every Time Zone: knowing what time it is across the globe is no longer an issue with this HTML5 web app - know when to schedule meetings with a simple drag of an icon. This is the future of where apps are going! Now if only they could attend the meetings for you...
