iPad Apps (iMovie & Forms)

By Carlo Daniels, Instructional Development Services Graduate Assistant

iMovie for iPad

Apple’s iMovie for its mobile devices is a powerful and simply effective video editing tool that utilizes only the touch of one’s finger to tap, drag, and swipe to create exciting trailers and movie compositions. One can choose from existing videos or photos straight from one’s iPad, iPod touch, or iPhone or simply make new footage right in iMovie to insert into one’s video project.  When creating a movie trailer or customized movie, one can select and mix-and-match from a variety of Hollywood-like templates with colorful themes, quality soundtracks, and editable titles and for many different movie genres.  In addition, trailers contain pre-set storyboards that indicate which types of video shots to use, which makes the whole process fast and simple.  More video editing options allow for frame freezing, splitting clips, audio adjustments, etc.

iMovie for iOS takes advantage of  web-sharing features by allowing one to share created videos in up to 1080p HD on Facebook, Youtube, CNN iReport, and Vimeo. Other sharing options include sending an email from the Camera Roll, using iMessage, and project sharing between Apple mobile devices with iTunes.  iMovie for iOS is great for educators who utilize teaching with iPads, iPod touches, or iPhones for video projects like public service announcements, advertisements, video journaling, etc. And the multiple sharing options make it great for students/educators who are always on-the-go.  One disadvantage; however, is that iMovie for iOS differs in its user interface from its iMovie for Mac OS counterpart.

Purchase iMovie for the iPad from the iTunes App Store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/imovie/id377298193?mt=8.

Forms for iPad

Serving as a client app to Google Doc’s Forms feature, this app allows one to look at forms created in Google Forms in a very easy-to-view layout on one’s iPhone/iPad.  For more information on Google Docs, click on the following link: https://docs.google.com/

Google forms created from your PC or Mac that are viewed on one’s iOS device are displayed with optimized margins and font sizes, thus eliminating the need to fiddle with a form on the device with your finger by pinching, zooming, enlarging, and scrolling up and down and left and right.  It is great for educators who need students or others to conveniently fill out forms right on their mobile devices.   What is more is that the app contains an advantageous offline mode where one can simply enter information into forms previously downloaded on one’s mobile device.  Inputted information will then be sent once the device re-connects to the Internet.  One disadvantage; however, is offline only works with forms containing single pages and reverts themes to the plain settings.  For further information, please visit the following link: http://NextApps.info/tag/forms

Tech Tip for Forms: Working in Offline Mode

By Brittani Carter and Amanda Richards, Instructional Development Services Lab Assistants

In order to use the “Forms” application in an environment without WiFi, you have to turn on the “Offline Mode”.

In order to use your form in the “Offline Mode” you need to upload your form from “Google Docs” onto the iPad.

In order to turn the “Offline ModeOn you have to locate the plug icon at the lower part of the screen as pictured below.

Once you are in the correct mode, touch the outside of the box, and this will allow you to go back to your “Forms” screen and enter your answers and hit submit.

After you submitted your answers it will direct you the screen showing you that your answers have been recorded.

If you have more than one person who is participating in the survey, select the “Go back to the form” link to enter the next set of answers.

If you’ve completed the form, select the “Forms” button located at the top right corner.

Selecting the “Forms” button will bring you back to the main screen. At the bottom of the screen, tap the Plug icon.

This will bring you back to the screen that allows you to “Show Answers “or “Upload Answers”.

When you reach this screen you always want to make sure you have WiFi connection before you choose “Upload Answers”.
