AppSmash is a pretty neat idea for tablets, "the process of combining multiple apps to create new multimedia content." One of the greatest weaknesses of traditional tablets (a la the iPad) is that you can only view one app at a time. This makes them more like portable TVs or game consoles, and less like computers. AppSmash doesn't exactly address this, but in joining separate applications it does do something unique. For example, "with Book Creator, students can record their voice directly into a page and, for instance, comment on the images, shapes, audio, or video on that particular page." Consuming content and creating it. Imagine!
