LiveBinders Comes to the iPad

The popular online online bookmarking, digital notebook service LiveBinders released a new iPad app last week. The new LiveBinders iPad app gives you access to all of your binders to edit and present the content stored within them.

If you aren't familiar with LiveBinders itself, it is a free online service that allows you to create online binders of webpages, images, and documents. Live Binders displays your collected content in a tabbed, book-like format. You can create binders for as many topics as you like. Adding content to your Live Binder can be done by manually typing in the url of a webpage, upload files from your computer to your Live Binder, or add content through the Live Binders browser add-ons for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer.

Applications for Education
Live Binders can be an excellent tool for students to use to create online booklets of resources they find online combined with content that they've created. I learned about the LiveBinders iPad app from Steven Anderson who uses LiveBinders to organize and share much of the great content he's discovered and developed online.
