@Boone: That makes sense. I don’t carry a laptop, because I carry too much other stuff. I tried taking attendance in a gDocs spreadsheet one semester, which worked ok. The problem there was that, in most classrooms, the media center is installed such that you have to face *away* from the students to use it, which is just insane.
I could probably do that with my phone, but this is fun, and there’s the random student feature, which is a nice throw-in.]]>
This app looks really slick, though – definitely worth the $3 to give it a try.
Andrew Cullison has written about taking attendance with his G1 phone, again using a regular spreadsheet program.]]>
