I use this app on a daily basis. I have become known as the resident expert of web2.0 with the help of this app and the tools directory. The directory lets me find a pre-screened applicable to what ever I'm doing, or would like to do. And they're all arranged by category so I can find them quick and easy. The how to videos are good. They are a mix of videos created by Teachers Tech and videos created by Google, Prezi and others. They play relatively quick and help newbies get started with many web2.0 websites. This app is not free, but at $1.99, I think it's worth. It's saved me hours of hunting and anything that helps me save time is a good thing!
