As I looked at the list of 23 things, I saw lots of things I wouldn't have normally tried. This made me try new things and discover apps I didn't know were there. My favorite things were hobbies, games and presentations. I also liked the library and reference portion. I didn't really connect with others while doing this.
I enjoyed doing this and would probably do it again if offered.
Educational and enlightening!

I currently use the Pinterest app. I love this app for personal and professional reasons. I have found many things I have made for my home and garden and many things I would like to make. I also have found many things I could do or make for my library at work. There are many display and bulletin board ideas I could use at work. I like how you can have numerous boards so it is easy to find things that you have pinned. I have a board just for library ideas.
I currently have the Facebook app. I think I would use this more for personal reasons than professional reasons. I use it to keep in touch with friends and family that I don't see very often. I think for privacy reasons, I would not not like to use this at work.

I have Word and One Drive on my mobile device which is what I use so I didn't download a new app. Since they are similar I didn't feel the need to put more apps on my iPad. I can create and save documents with the ones I have for personal use and work.
I downloaded the Vine app. It is interesting but not sure yet how or if I would use this at home or work. I don't like to post videos of myself! This is something I will have to think about to decide if it would be useful - 6 seconds is pretty long for some things but not long enough to record someone reading a story or something like that.
One of my favorite hobbies is knitting and I am learning how to crochet. I found an app called knitting and it has many patterns of things to knit or crochet. Many of them are free but some you have to pay for. You could spend many hours just looking at all the things you could make!
