In preparation for next week’s face-to-face and online workshop on December 29th, “iOS Apps for Productivity and Fun (iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch)” I’ve created an accompanying handout which includes categorized lists of applications we’ll be sharing. I say “we” because my kids have agreed to assist me as workshop facilitators! These apps, linked to their respective pages in the iTunes App Store, are listed on If you have not yet registered to join us for the workshop, either face-to-face in Oklahoma City or virtually via and a backchannel, you can still register via EventBrite through December 27th. (F) indicates a free app, (C) indicates the app is commercial, i.e. not free. We won’t demonstrate ALL these apps during the six hour workshop in exhaustive detail, but we are planning to share most of them. This list is still subject to change, check the virtual handout page for the most current version.
