Napkin for iPad

A note taking application that allows you to quickly put down your ideas in diagrammatic and textual form with nice arrows.

Why would you use it?

Speed - get the idea down fast. To free up your creativity, to make a point or an argument visually, or to help you remember a process.

How's it do it?

Napkin tries to balance ease of use - with the need for speed. For example, drawing lines or arrows with a finger is quick and intuitive. However to draw an object you tap two fingers down together, drawing a big circle or square is too slow.

What it is not!

Napkin is not an art program.

Grouper for iPad

Recent studies show that groups perform as well as their worst member. Grouper automatically places people impartially into groups for you. You can easily import or create your participants and groups - and the allocation into those groups is the output.

Why would you use it?

Save you time and mistakes. Grouper will allocate participants fairly into groups in minutes at the most. Normally grouping people well is hard to do fairly, and doing it manually can take you many hours for class room sized groups. Grouper is useful for grouping students, organising sports teams (and also helpful for splitting experts and/or novices amongst the teams), grouping models (for example when competing in Transylvania's or Rapanui's Next Top Model) - and other competitive type group activities.

How's it do it?

In the simplest case Grouper tries to allocate participants who have been together before in the same year, to different classes, but can influence the allocation by setting categories, so that participants are either more likely to be together or less likely.

What it is not!

It is not a class room admin program, it does not do other resource (such as teachers, coaches etc) allocation. It is not a round robin organiser.
