To complement highlighting AskRI.org as our site of the week, I am highlighting the apps currently available for AskRI resources. I will update as more information becomes available.
Currently, mobile access for A to Z Databases is available for iPhone and iPad devices only. The device must be within a twenty mile range of a library with a subscription.
EBSCOhost app provides mobile access to the databases on AskRI.org. Users must activate their devices, both Apple and Andriod, following the directions provided at EBSCO Support.
Mango Mobile provides apps for iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android. Links to the app and information about it are found at Mango Mobile.
Currently, the app for Tutor.com is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Information about the app is available at Tutor.com.
Tutor.com is available via web access on all devices.
Since this week's news again focused on the "skills gap," I thought I might highlight a math app aimed at elementary and middle school students. Math Slicer is billed as "a fun alternative to using flashcards to practice basic mathematics skills." It is available for both Android and iPad. The paid version ($.99) is ad free.
