Apps for the 12 Days of Christmas - Quotebook


Quotebook is an App for iDevices that allows users to easily track, capture, copy and paste quotes into a central location (app).  Each quote can be categorized and tagged with keywords.  I could see teachers using this to track quotes that they want students to use in the classroom and I could see students using this app to track quotes and parts of a book they are doing for research.  I could also see this being used by students who are avid readers as a way to save their favorite parts of a book.  Quotebook is available in the App Store at a cost of $2.99.

Quotebook is synced to iCloud and Instapaper.  You can also link to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts as well.  The service allows users to also mark the author and source of the quote making it easier for students to document where they get the quote from and also so they can look up other quotes by the same author.  For a quick glimpse at how it is used, see the video below.
