- Go back to your thoughts/ideas about mobile devices and apps. Has anything changed as a result of this experience?
- Not really. I guess I'm more aware of somethings and maybe more likely to seek out a solution through an App now. Maybe.
- What were your favorite Things and discoveries?
- Favorite thing: TED talks App. Loving it!
- Discoveries: App utility and ease. I have discovered I can tell which Apps suck faster.
- How did you connect with others doing the 23 Mobile Things?
- I went to their office and talked to them about it and commented on comments they posted on my blog/
- Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
- I finished 4 days early.
- What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or content?
- Not much. I think the self paced format works well. I like the variety.
- If we offered a another 23 Things program like this in the future would you participate?
- How would you describe your learning experience in one word or in one sentence, so we could use your words to promote 23 Things learning activities to others?
- Appy (to the tune of Happy sung by Pharrell Wiliams)

Oh Candy Crush, how glad I am no longer to be addicted to you. I've moved on to the Doctor Who bubble game. Not as fun but out it's officially licensed. I'm a gander but I haven't made the leap to phone gaming. I'm old school. I do Pen and Paper RPGs and Boardgame. I think I'll be playing Firefly the Boardgame tomorrow night.
I've been using spotify for a while. I like it fine. I find I like Amazon's MP3 player better. The radio stuff on Spotify is cool and all but I just want to listen to my stuff most of the time. What I really want is a super easy way to put MP3 audio books on to multiple devices and be able to have all the devices know where I left off on an audio book. So far the audible apps the best I've got but I can't add my own cool stuff like Doctor Audios. I also checked out Road Ninja. That'll be fun when Theo and I road trip to Gen Con in August.
So first I tried the Eat This Not That Game. It's okay. Verging on fun even, but I learned very little from it. Next I tried the TED tasks app. So awesome! I love that I can tell it hire much time I have and select a topic and boom! There's something cool to watch. Most impressive. And I learned something: in Japan blocks are named not streets.
