Book & Reference Apps
It’s fun to have apps that allow us to play games, check our social networks and text our friends, but we didn’t forget that you sometimes like to have some handy mobile apps that can help you learn something new, too. That’s why our team at The Recapp has conjured up a group of download-worthy apps that serve as quick-reference and how-to guides. Browse helpful Google apps, reader apps and even an app that can help you find ghosts!
Learn how to point out the constellations, see the top of the Matterhorn or search for your favorite music lyrics. We have a bunch of quick-reference apps that you can use in any type of mobile situation. Google Translate, Google Earth and Google Search, to name a few, serve their purposes elegantly in mobile form. We particularly love Planets, a 5-star app that gives you a better understanding of our vast universe, helping you find things like the North Star and Venus.
If you want to become your own barista faster than you can say “cappuccino,” the Barista how-to app is for you. There’s even the Knot Guide app to improve your Boy or Girl Scout survival skills, or to simply discover how to tie one of those cool-looking knots you can never undo.
Love to read? Check out the e-reader apps that optimize your reading experience on your mobile device, such as Kindle or Aldiko. Maybe you don’t want to read on that small screen; then you can try Audible, an audiobook app.
