I will always be the first to say, when it comes to anything having to deal with technology, whether it be my iPhone, laptop, or even some social media sites, I am not the best. I would even say at times that I am “technologically challenged”. This can be extremely frustrating, especially when using various databases to do research for a big assignment. I always find someway to make more work for myself when researching. When I am finding my scholarly sources, I find myself opening ten different tabs, with all of my sources and search engines, because I am afraid of losing them, and never finding them again. That problem is now a thing of the past, thanks to this new app, “Start.me“.
“Start. me” is an app that allows you to save your scholarly articles and links as you are researching. This is a great tool to use so you do not have to have ten different tabs open, and make researching more complicated than it needs to be. With the utilization of “Start.me”, you are able to go back to all of your sources and easily compile a works cited page. Also included in this app, is the ability to embed any webpage/source into the program by pasting the url. Saving sources for research just became that much easier with “Smart.com”, especially for individuals, such as myself who are “technologically challenged”.
