Blogging #23mobilethings

I decided to join Australian and New Zealand librarians and other members of the library community to take part in the 23mobilethings challenge, so I have signed up with ANZ 23 mobile things.

Already an avid user of social media, I am hoping to explore how to use my cellphone (an iPhone 4) to use mobile apps that I don’t already use, or to learn different tips on the ones I use already.

The 23 mobile things are:

  1. Twitter
  2. Taking a photo with a mobile device: Instagram / Flickr app / Snapchat
  3. eMail on the move
  4. Maps and checking in
  5. Photos + Maps + Apps: Historypin / What was there / Sepia Town
  6. Video: YouTube and screencasts
  7. Communicate: Skype / Google Hangout
  8. Calendar
  9. QR codes
  10. Social reading: RSS / Flipboard / Feedly / Goodreads / Pocket
  11. Augmented reality: Layar
  12. Games: Angry Birds / Wordfeud
  13. Online identity: FaceBook and LinkedIn
  14. Curating: Pinterest / Scoop.it / Tumblr
  15. Adobe ID
  16. eBooks and eBook apps: Project Gutenberg / Kindle / Overdrive / Bluefire / Kobo, etc.
  17. Evernote and Zotero
  18. Productivity tools: Doodle / Remember the Milk / Hackpad / any.do / 30/30
  19. File sharing: Dropbox
  20. Music: last.fm / Spotify
  21. Voice interaction and recording
  22. eResources vendor apps
  23. Digital storytelling

I did start earlier with Twitter, but fell behind due to general busyness – so now I have some catching up to do – I think my library friends and colleagues are about 5 “things” ahead of me!
