App Smashing Ideas

App smashing is the act of creating content in one app and then pulling it into a second or third to create something entirely new.

When you app smash using web apps, you just download content or shift it from app to app using embedding. It is important to take into consideration age restrictions if you are planning on using web applications with your students.

For the iPad you want to find apps that will allow you to save content to your photo roll.  The photo roll is often the tool that you will use to help transfer content from one app to another.

Check out some ideas below for app smashing.
