I really love how we can do things much quicker now with the iPad, MacBook, PC and all kinds of other technology. I also love the tools that come with these devices. So today, I’m going to write about my 5 favorite web tools/apps! Please note that the order they come in are random, I like them all equally.
Pages is a wonderful writing tool. On pages, you can create posters, letters, business cards and all kinds of other things very easily! It’s very similar to Microsoft word, but I find it better because it is accessible on many devices. Pages costs money though, but it’s really worth it! Some people say it’s expensive, but you can probably make that decision with your parents. The cost is $9.99 (USD) and in my opinion, it’s quite reasonable.
Keynote is also an app made by Apple, and costs the same as pages. Keynote is a presentation tool that makes amazing presentations. With keynote, you can use different themes, have animations, add videos and add pictures to make your presentation as good as it can be. Again, similar to PowerPoint, but still more accessible. I usually use Keynote for school projects, but you can make some for leisure too! (things you believe in, things you want to change, etc.)
Evernote is an UTTERLY AMAZING note taking tool. With an account, you can sync all your notes onto other devices and other Evernote apps. Evernote allows you to make notebooks and fill them with notes, and within those notes you can add PDFs, pictures and videos. You can also upgrade your account to get better features. I have to admit, it lags like crazy sometimes, and duplicates what you write 4-5 times. Which can be very annoying. But it’s a very good note-taking app for those who need one.
Another Apple-made app, numbers can make graphs, sheets, lists, plans and other things related to numbers in really soon. I have a nice graph to make sure I turn in all my chinese homework on this. And I think it’s had nice results. It also costs 9.99, but is super useful for those who like to map out stuff or make lists and graphs. Sometimes, I just like to play around with numbers because it’s quite fun to make lists for random stuff.

Popplet is a mind-mapping app that can be used online, and with the apps. The lite version only allows 5 popplet a to be made. But you have unlimited ones with the full version. The online site for popplet is better for those PC or MacBook users, but the app is much better for people with smaller devices. I like popplet because I can make cool brainstorms and I can use it to map out books by writing character traits and linking them to the character.
Well, that’s it for this post. And I hope you’ll check out these apps.
