New Mobile Apps Resource Guide From UofT

New Mobile Apps Resource Guide From UofT

Carey Toane has posted a useful Mobile App development resource guide, in collaboration with the Mike Spears, manager of the UofT MADLab. Carey is the Entrepreneurship Librarian for the Gerstein Science Information Centre.

According to Carey:

The guide was developed in response to the high volume of questions about and interest in mobile apps as a business idea among U of T entrepreneurs. The guide is primarily comprised of open web links to resources intended to help students and faculty looking to develop an app to understand what’s involved such as costing, design, market landscape, and other resources like analytics tools, recommended blogs, community resources and more.

Help Evaluate A New App That Could Help You Stay On Top Of Your Work

An Invitation To Evaluate A New App That Could Help You Keep On Top Of Your Work

You know how much effort it takes to stay on top of your work.

You know how good it feels to take an item on your ‘To Do’ list and check it off.

You know how horrible it feels to miss a deadline or to hand in something that doesn’t reflect your best work because you didn’t allow the time to do it right.

You need a good planning tool to help you keep on top of your work.

Coach CheckItOff is a mobile app with a secret sauce that will help you keep up to date more effectively than any other planner –
and that a student who uses it will achieve higher grades and will have less stress along the way.

Come check it out on Thursday, December 17th at 6:00 p.m. at the MADLab at Gerstein Library.  The preview session will be 1 hour.

The developer is doing some alpha testing and would like to see how you like the app and how we can improve it based on your feedback.

Limited spaces available. Please RSVP to to sign up. A free snack will be provided.
