Search Engine for Mobile Applications!

Searching through the thousands of applications, videos, songs, photos, and ring tones for cell phones just became a little easier for me with Everythingformymobile. This site searches on any topic for media or applications that will work on mobile devices. For example if I was looking for videos on how to use FOIL in mathematics, I could click on the video tab, and type in "Math and FOIL". After a few seconds of searching, videos would appear that I could easily upload to my own or my students' mobile devices.

Classroom Integration
I envision Everythingformymobile as an awesome resource for teachers who would like their students to take their learning "to go".

Video Reviews
Students who need extra review could upload some videos on the subject to their cell phones and always have a mobile tutor.

Mobile Projects
Teachers could search for mobile applications that perform functions that they are interesting in using for classroom projects. For example an English teacher who would like her students to write a text message novel. The English teacher could click on the Applications tab and then search for "Novel and Text Message."

Photo Reviews
Students could create photo collages to send to their cell phones by typing in a concept such as "vectors" or "8th amendment" in the Photo search tab. Then they could upload the images that best remind them of the concept and it's definition.

In the US in January, LocationPoint allows location-based applicationsto access its global, digital map. NAVTEQ is one of the most comprehensive digital mapping services.

Hi Liz, love your blog! I noticed this post thought I'd mention an alternative. Push Mobile Media offers a service called mobiSearch that lets you build reference libraries of videos and pdf documents that can be accessed on any mobile device.

All you do is create categories and upload your content into the system. To enable search, you can tag everything as you create and load. It's pretty nifty!

The tools are ideally suited to create learning programs too - complete with text, images, videos, quizzes and polls.

Thanks for covering the all the aspects of cell phone learning. We are keen on the future of it too!
