For those who missed it, here is the November 2012 EMDUG online meeting recording. In this latest recording we talk about: how to research, evaluate and purchase apps; Denise Ruttan from Oregon State University Extension and Experiment Station Communications shares her Android experiences; Jeff Hino discusses his new Apple iPad Mini; and we review some apps (see list below).

This latest meeting was also an interesting experiment in mobile technology use. We used an app called Reflector (previously Reflection) which works with Apple’s Airplay technology to mirror an iPhone screen (including the video feed from the onboard iPhone camera) to a Macbook laptop’s screen, which in turn shared it’s screen through Adobe Connect. If you watch the recording you can see what we’re talking about. The frame rate is kind of slow and choppy because of the technological hoops we were jumping through, but you can still see what we were doing.

Planet of the Apps

Here are the apps we reviewed:

 

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for another fun and informative Extension Mobile Device User Group (EMDUG) online meeting this Thursday, November 29 from 2:00-2:45 p.m.

This month we will have a special guest, a real live Android smart phone user! (don’t want you Android fans feeling left out!) We will also talk about how to find, evaluate and obtain apps; review the new iPad Mini from Apple; discuss the Responsive Design makeover of this blog and, of course, more mobile app reviews and recommendations from Jeff and I.

As always, this session is geared towards EMDUG members, but open to anyone interested in mobile device use.

The online meeting will be done via Adobe Connect (instructions below).

Mobile app analytics company, Flurry, has released a report saying that iOS and Android mobile devices are being adopted:

  • 10X faster than PCs in the 80s
  • 2X faster than the Internet Boom of the 90s
  • 3X faster than the recent adoption of social media

As we look and this explosive rate of adoption, Extension needs to be looking at how to connect with all these people using mobile devices by designing our websites with responsive design and mobile in mind, creating mobile apps and making sure our content is optimized for a smaller format (information is smaller chunks, etc.).

If you are not yet a mobile user, now is the time to find out what all the hoopla is all about!
