While observing her students, a program chair notices that most of her students have smart phones. She came up to me and asked if I would do a short feature on phone applications for veterinary technology students.
With my vast knowledge in the veterinary technology skills (just kidding), I asked her to give me the top apps that she would see students utilizing.
A phone application is similar to a computer program, except they are utilized on smart phones, such as the IPhone or Android.
