Project 365 App Helps You Organize Your Photos Throughout the Year

On Sunday I shared that thanks to Ken Shelton, I finally "get" the purpose of participating in Project 365. In short, committing to a 365 project is a good way to build up a private media library that you and your students can access when you media for your presentations.

Last night I was somewhat aimlessly browsing the App Store when I discovered the Project 365 app for iPhone and iPad. The app provides a place to organize your images in a calendar format and share you images via Facebook, Twitter, and email. The "pro" version of the app ($0.99) removes advertising, includes image cropping tools, and offers immediate upload to your Flickr account.

Applications for Education
If your school is using iPads, the Project 365 apps could be handy for creating image galleries that your students can use whenever they need images for slideshows, videos, or other digital stories. By using their own images, all concerns about Copyright are removed from their projects.
