On August 1 at Appy Hour, Angel Demirev, a University of Utah student and Apple Campus Rep, presented three productivity apps. The apps are Explain Everything, Notability, and iAnnotate. With all three apps, you can easily take notes and add text, visuals, and sound to pre-existing documents.
As Angel mentioned during Appy Hour, there are hundreds of other note taking and annotation apps available for both Android and iOS devices. Explain Everything, Notability, and iAnnotate are just three examples of apps currently used by University of Utah community.
Each app has a different “strength”. Explain Everything is really useful when presenting because you can annotate your presentation seamlessly to direct your audience’s attention to key points. Notability’s functions are great for taking and adding notes to PowerPoint slides; the record sound feature is also a strength. Finally, iAnnotate’s strength is annotating PDFs since it recognizes text when highlighting or underlining a document.
Give them a try!
