Best mobile app

WoW Armory http://us.battle.net/wow/en/services/mobile-armory/

The first reason is at the ISTE conference in San Diego, I was able to send messages to my guildees in Cog Dis when I was back stage at the ISTE opening ceremony. Why was I backstage? Well …the Guild Leader, Peggy Sheehy was co-hosting the opening ceremony! I was able to give the other educators in our guild a blow by blow of the event.

The second reason is because during Sandy it allowed the members of our educators guild to communicate with each other.

Here’s my write-up on the mobile app – http://g.a.m.e.shivtr.com/pages/mobilemmorpg
