Unrelated to library media programs, but still great- Ziplist allows you to work on your grocery list from the computer or with an app for your phone. You can set up the "isles" to be in the same order as in the grocery store, and click the items off the list as you put them in your cart. Ziplist let's you know what is on sale where you shop, and it also finds recipes! If you find a recipe you like, with one click, all of the ingredients get placed in your list!
Kids Journal is a great app for the iPad and young students, mainly because you can have several journals on one iPad if you only have a few iPads in your library. Children can take pictures and add them to their journal, and there are prompts available to help beginning readers.
Drawing Pad is a drawing app that is so much fun! Artists, both young and old, can easily add photos, change backgrounds, add stamps, change color, write words, and save work as a photo to be used in presentations.
