iphone screen Firstly, apologies about my website being down for a week, I had a malicious visitor but thanks to Zoe Ross and her brilliant contact we’re now up and running again!

I have been wanting to write this post for a while, especially after seeing @Tombarrett tweet a question about how to share all the apps on your Apple device. (Kathy Shrock answered that one.)

Although Kathy’s way is to share a list of apps in PDF format. But you’d still have to search in the App store which would take forever! Another way would be to use a brilliant app called Eyeconit and just share a photo of your screen on the internet.

Eyeconit is an amazing FREE IOS app that basically is an App icon scanner. All you do is start up the Eyeconit app and then point the camera at your desired app icon and it scans and searches for the icon.

It then lists a group of possible apps and the download links. It’s that simple.

I can see Eyeconit being very useful especially if someone shares an iPhone/iPad screen shot on Twitter-they wouldn’t have to write a huge list of apps. Great for edu-app sharing!

So what are you waiting for-here’s a screen from my iPhone-scan away!
