TinyScan

TinyScan
http://www.appxy.com/tinyscan/

The idea of TinyScan is simple – the app uses the camera function of iPhones to make them into portable scanners, so that users can scan documents and transform them into PDFs. The scanner automatically detects the page frame, making scanning extremely user friendly. PDFs can then be easily shared with others by uploading to Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, and others. TinyScan requires iOS 6.0+ or Android 3.0+. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Astrobiology

Astrobiology
http://online.liebertpub.com/toc/ast/15/1

Put simply, Astrobiology is a diverse and multidisciplinary field that seeks to understand the origins of life. Sometimes it manifests as a searchfor life on other planets, other times it might be a deep ocean dive. Astrobiology, the journal, is the “leading peer-reviewed international journal for astronomers, biologists, chemists, geologists, microbiologists, paleontologists, and planetary scientists.” Best of all, readers can download dozens of peer-reviewed articles, ranging from tributes to pioneers in the field to intricate studies of ocean vent microbes, for free. Recent articles have focused on the debate over how to define life and the implications for the detection of potential bacterial life on one of Jupiter’s moons. Each issue features a tribute, a News & Views article, and an education article. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.

Beansprock – Your Personal Tech Job Hunter

April 08, 2015

Beansprock – Your Personal Tech Job Hunter
https://www.beansprock.com/

Beansprock wants to change the way people find and attain jobs. For the busy professional, spending hours every day browsing job postings simply isn’t possible. Even if it was, don’t get us started on how deficient these postings are. Beansprock does all the work for you—evaluating thousands of tech jobs every day and sending only the best one to you. Beansprock’s knowledge base allows our matching to go beyond keyword search. For example, if you are skilled in Angular.js, then we can infer that you know JavaScript and front-end development. Also important for finding your best job, they can identify new skills that you may be interested in learning and can pick up easily. While building Beansprock, they asked hundreds of developers—what do you want to know most about a job? Perhaps unsurprisingly, many of the responses were for things not even found on a typical job posting. Beansprock augments every posting with a richer understanding of that job. Our matches consider the salary expectations, the commute time, as well as your company preferences, such as the markets it plays in, its size, and even its culture. As one user (who isn’t our mom) stated—”this is everything I want, why hasn’t anyone done this before?” We asked ourselves the same thing. This will be added to Employment Resources Subject Tracer™.

Being featured by Apple as an “App Store Best”, MindNode has helped students, artists and project managers to be more creative with less effort.
