    "This is a really good app for librarians. Being knowledgeable about good books always helps when interacting with patrons. The social aspects of the app makes it better as most other apps are very static"

    "Flipboard is awesome for getting the news without having to actually turn on the news. It came preinstalled on my phone."

    "Nook is a really good app. The interface is fine, the recommendations are all pretty good, and there's a lot of variety. The only problem is it exists in a world where Kindle also exists, and the Kindle app and ecosystem just blows it out of the water. The one thing Nook does a little better than Kindle is comicbooks/magazines, so if that's what you're looking for it's worth checking out."

    "The Amazon Kindle is a great way to read your favorite books and literature on the go, and you don't even need a dedicated Kindle device to do it...any mobile device will do. Offers the same functionality as the regular Kindle at a fraction of the cost."

    "I've downloaded lot of books from iBooks and have never had a problem. I especially like the free ones that are available. If anyone ever needs info on a book, I can simply look it up on my phone rather than the library computer. It's faster and easier."

    "I was shocked to see that I could not forward any notes to an email or even copy them to another source. Add this to the fact that the app often crashed, and it is easy to conclude that I had no use for this app."

    "The best app for librarians, hands down is Evernote. The Evernote app allows users to keep a range of media (text, video, photo, audio) to keep them organized and easy to access. Easy to share and collaborate with other people."

    "I loved the idea of Keynote when I first heard of it, and having finally had the chance to use it I love it even more. It makes everything so easy. I used to dread presentations, because without graphics and something to put on the screen, your audience can get bored or not follow your points very well. Keynote helps me get my message across, and I'm moving up in my department. Thank you Keynote!"
