App-tastic Tuesday: OnLive Desktop

Some of us just like our PCs. And, no matter how convenient, slick, and intuitive your iPad is, there are times that you wish you had an actual computer tucked up your tablet sleeve.

With OnLive Desktop, a free productivity app, you can use your iPad to do many of the basic tasks that you could perform on a Windows computer. You sign into the app and have access your virtual desktop, complete with PowerPoint, Word, Excel, Internet Explorer with Flash, and 2GB free cloud storage.

App-tastic Tuesday: YouVersion (a day late)

I'm running a day behind this week; I'll blame Labor Day for having me all discombobulated!

Today's featured app is a free Bible app that should come in handy for students taking religion classes or anyone just looking for a robust personal devotions tool.

YouVersion allows you to choose from many different translations and paraphrases of the Bible while you have an active internet connection; certain versions can also be downloaded to your iPad/iPhone/Android for offline access (mostly older translations that are in the public domain). Most translations also have an audio version that you can listen to while connected to the web.

You can navigate to specific passages, look up topics or keywords, pick a daily reading plan, or save your own notes and bookmarks. Some churches are also beginning to post sermon outlines to YouVersion's "Live Events," allowing you to access, add your own notes, and then save or email to yourself. 

YouVersion offers lots of non-English versions, as well. 

And, as always, don't forget to download the Reeves Library app!
