With a vast range of course available which are good on my pocket, I can invest my time at my convenience to progress in my career."

      "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"

      "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."

      "I like the huge library that comes with the Nook. I always find something that fits my own tastes in literature. Also the reading app itself is highly customizable, it actually fills like you're reading a paper book with the ability to write on the margins, etc."

      "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."

      "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 am a big supporter of freeware. Pages is a great, simple tool that allows users to do basic word processing functions without investing in expensive office suites. For basic writing needs, it serves its purpose flawlessly. I use Pages on my home computer and have unsubscribed from Office 365 because I don't have a use for it anymore."

      "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!"

      "As the a seasoned librarian, I absolutely love how this app allows others in the library to contribute to a project with ease. Not only does the app have many tools that are easy to use but the presentations are so vivid they always captivate even the shortest attention span which is important especially when we are working with groups of teenagers and children."
