Ebooks may be one of the things that we get asked about most when it comes to smartphones and tablets, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t come across other great things to do with a mobile device! Here are just a few of the better apps we’ve happened across lately:
YALSA’s Teen Book Finder – When you can’t get ahold of one of the librarians, this app has plenty of good features to help you find a great read. It shows off top and popular picks of the day, but also allows you to search by title, author, genre, year, literary awards and by many notable booklists. It also lets you tag books as your favorites to help you find similar reads in the future. If you need to find a book you can enjoy, librarians are your best bet, but this is a good second-best.
Manga Camera – This one is pure fun. Take a picture of something and this app will draw it in manga styles. There’s even options to affect just how it draws and shades, and a selection of eastern and manga-themed backgrounds to help give your image even more flair!
Flow Free – This little game seems simple at first, but there’s a lot of strategy! Each level has you connecting dots of like colors to create pipes between them, and you need to connect each pair of dots without crossing or overlapping any pipes. It’s a lot harder (And more fun!) than it sounds, so if you need a break from Angry Birds, or whatever else you’ve been playing, try Flow Free.
Hope you enjoy these new apps, and if you have any you want to share with us in return, show them to Will at the library, or email him about them at Wbrown (at) falmouth.lib.me.us – We’re always glad to hear from you!
