This site is a resource by community and for community. There are many people at Hamilton with a great deal of experience using mobile technology, so ITS cordially and heartily invites members of the community to help build this repository. There are a variety of ways to engage with us:
The cliché "There's an app for that" is how most conversations about mobile devices start. The app ecosystem is indeed rich, but can also be overwhelming: what differentiates one app from another? Is a particular best suited for your need?
There are often no concrete answers to these questions. Often, experimentation is the best practice. Search engines are also your friends here: there exist many webpages devoted to apps, particularly in specific contexts; searching for your platform (e.g. iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows 8) and your task or your discipline will doubtlessly yield fruitful results.
But we labor in this site to provide a curated repository of apps that interoperate well with existing campus resources and are utilized by many members of the community. As such, we hope that you begin your search here. If you need information that isn't on the site, please contact us and we will research and publish our findings.
Having a conversation about what you would like to accomplish--and whether or not a mobile device might be a useful solution--is an oft-overlooked approach to beginning or continuing an exploration with this technology. As is the case with any other matter, ITS staff seek to engage with and help members of the community explore possibilities. We can also help connnect you with members of the community who are on similar explorations.
To connect with us, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org call Ted Fondak (x4033) or Maureen Scoones (x4178.)
