Thing 22: Mobile Things

One app which I made extensive use of during my MLIS was the WeChat app. This is an app similar to Whatsapp that allows users to send free text messages to each other as long as they have an internet connection. I was informed about it my a member of my Capstone group who suggested it as a way of ensuring we could stay in touch as some of us were having problems with UCD’s email. The app allows for both single and group conversations and was our groups main method of organizing group meetings and getting in touch with absent members in order to assign them tasks for the project. As grad students on a budget it was an extremely useful way of keeping in touch with each other and making sure everyone kept up to speed with their aspect of the project.
