Need an App? 

            It seems that there is an App for everything these days. But how do you find the ones you need? Google searches and searches of Playstore turn up lots of results but which ones do what you really want. Which ones just load up your phone that much more till it can barely function because it is overloaded with apps running in the background and slowing it down. You can spend a lot of time looking for reviews or maybe you can find some trusted websites that list Apps by topic.

            One site you may want to check out is http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/agcomm/lets-communicate/extension-apps This NDSU Extension site has links to a list of Apps produced by Extension educators and researchers across the country with topics ranging from Sprayer Calibration, Corn Production, Weed Control, to Nutrition and many others. The site also has links to other lists compiled by various Extension educators from across the country.
