Magazine Creator Available for Computers and now PHONES!

Some of you are probably familiar with "Glossi," a site where you can create online magazines. The company now offers, “Slipp,” an app to build magazines, cards, etc. for phones. The app is free. Go to: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/glossi-inc./id549635643
The old Glossi address will not take you directly to the site. First, you must go to
http://slipp.it/browse/#!/featured. Once there, click "About" and in the dropdown menu you will find "Glossi." Then, you will have to click the link to it in the text of the page.

Compare/Contrast Charts

A great tool to compare/contrast almost anything. Anyone can edit this site (like Wikipedia) so credibility can sometimes be a problem. However, since anyone can edit, users can improve existing charts or create their own. Link: http://www.diffen.com/
