Personally, I like using the chrome books. I think they are very convenient and I am constantly using it to get my homework done. I feel like they're a good size for us. They're extremely easy to use and we always have them on us to use. It sounds like they weren't too costly, so I think it was a good thing for our school to tryout.

I do, though, often use my smart phone at home to do my homework. They have apps (dictionary, translate, etc) that help a lot. It is small and can pull up anything very quickly. I'm on my phone most of the night so using it for homework is nice. In my opinion, I think smart phones are very easy to use. They are a little pricey because you have to pay for internet but I think it's worth it. 

I do not really enjoy using the ipads to do my homework. Things don't work as well and I feel like it is harder and takes longer to get homework done. You can access documents on google docs but you can't edit them. The look is nice because its a lot bigger than a smart phone, but you can't use it without internet like a smart phone. Unlike the ipad, you can use your phone and chrome book (google docs) with out internet. Ipads are pretty easy to use, but are kind of pricey as well. 

A kindle fire is very convenient to do homework on, although you probably won't do much homework. You can watch movies, read books, and many other things. You can get on the internet and access things for homework as well. Personally, I wouldn't use it for homework, though, because I would get sidetracked very quickly.

The app I'm inventing is called Combine. It will cost $0.99 to download but will be well worth it. The purpose of this app is to combine all the social media websites you use. For example, you will be able to read tweets from this app, as well as see instagram posts, vines, etc. This way, you can see all of the things you check everyday on one app. I think mostly teenagers would use this app because they're the ones using these social media sites such as instagram and twitter. I think they will like how everything is combined onto one app so they can see everything together.

Anyone with a social media account can use this app. I think it will be very convenient to all. I know after school, I always check three different apps. But by having this app, I will only have to check one. I will still get to see everything as if I were to check all three. Lets say, for example, that you only have twitter but you follow people who have instagram. You are still able to see their instagram posts even though you do not have instagram. This app doesn't just have to be for teenagers either, your parents might like it as well.
