D2L (aka eLearn) iPhone app

Labguru (studnet research resource/free) *apple or web

The free iPad app mentioned (called Labguru) formats experimental protocols to prevent mistakes while multitasking. For instance, countdown timers are matched to specific steps, tapping marks steps completed, and notes about results and deviations from the protocol sync to the experiment's spot in the paired web app so that nothing is forgotten or misplaced. The web app (1) helps organize data, emails, notes, and references so that paper writing and progress reports are less stressful and (2) helps students understand and plan experiments in context of a long-term research vision. It's only on the web, so the interface is modern+simple and is free for individuals.
