iPad Apps for the Library

I've had the iPads for a week now and have found so many great apps to use in Storytime and in other library programs.  I took the time to test out every app, my husband had fun helping too.  I found that some of the apps I would definitely use in a storytime setting while others I put on the iPads for parents and kids to use in the children section.  Our plan is to try and get the iPads set up in the library today.  I'll post pictures once that is all set, but for now here our the apps I am currently using and liking.  I will continue to update these lists as time
