Tally is a free iOS application with a very straightforward purpose: it allows users to quickly tally numbers by simply tapping on the screen. Users can also create multiple tallies at once by swiping their screens to the right and can save tallies to their iCloud account or email, or text their tallies to anyone. Finally, Tally allows users to "count" in increments of any number (e.g. by twos or sevens.) So why use Tally? Users may find this app helpful in classroom settings or in meetings as an easy way to track participation. Others may want to use this app while playing board or card games. [MMB]

Word Counter is a free tool that allows users to quickly analyze a piece of text. Initially created in 2009 as a simple word count tool, the team behind Word Counter has since added a number of features that will be of interest to writers and instructors alike. Today, Word Counter measures not only the number of words in a text, but also measures sentence length, keyword density, estimated reading level, and estimated reading time. Users can find out this information by simply pasting any amount of text into a text box. Word Counter is a useful tool for writers looking to avoid repetition or for instructors interested in the reading level of a specific text. (Of course, no estimated reading level assessment is perfect. The team behind Word Counter includes an explanation of how reading level and reading time are calculated, so users can use this tool in an informed way.) [MMB]

"Imagine a time with no computers but with lots of craftsmanship and creativity," poses the tagline of the website Design is Fine, History is Mine. Created by a design history instructor from Germany, Design is Fine, History is Mine showcases gorgeous - and sometimes unusual - works of design throughout history. Here, visitors can examine the colorful, bold carpets of Swedish textile designer Josef Frank; an eighteenth century British coffee pot designed to look like a pineapple; and a photograph of the "Blickensderfer 6," a portable typewriter crafted in 1906. Frequently updated, Design is Fine, History is Mine currently contains hundreds of fascinating items. Visitors can browse these items by century or decade (the collection also contains items pre dating the fifteenth century, which visitors can browse by using the tabs titled B.C and A.D., respectively); by designer; by item type (e.g. abstract art, graphic design, tea & coffee); and more.

Radio Garden is an extraordinary new website that allows visitors to listen to over 8,000 live radio stations from around the world. Created by Jonathan Puckey with financial support from the Netherlands Institute of Sound and Vision, Radio Garden utilizes a number of open sourced technologies and the contributions of radio stations from around the globe. As Jonathan Puckey explains in a recent interview with NPR, the project emerged when the Netherlands Institute of Sound and Vision approached Puckey about creating a museum exhibition for a recent, multi-university European research project called Transnational Radio Encounters. Puckey and his team decided to create this website instead. By clicking the above link, visitors will automatically be taken to the Live portion of this website and will be directed to the radio station closest to their current location. From here, visitors can explore other stations around the globe via an interactive map. When visitors select cities with multiple participating stations, a list will appear on the right side of the browser, allowing visitors to choose which station to listen to. By selecting the History tab or Jingles tab, visitors can explore historic radio broadcasts and station jingles from across time and space. Finally, the Stories tab features a number of moving interviews with individuals about the role of radio in their lives. [MMB]

For those looking to improve their daily productivity and habits, there are a number of mobile apps that promise to help. Dashpop is a new iOS application that may appeal to those looking for an application that is part traditional "to-do" and part lifestyle motivator. Dashpop allows users to create a number of reminders throughout the day. These reminders may be tasks (e.g. turn in report by 4:00 PM) or reminders to drink water, clean, or practice a new language. Once users complete a task they can "pop" the task and eventually earn reward badges called balloons. Dashpop also allows users to track productivity in a number of tasks and areas and provides users with productivity tips. Dashpop is free for iOS devices and includes optional in-app purchases.
