It’s nice to see the continued growth of U3 software for flash drives. Take my latest find, an educational music package for kids, MusiCan. The music is clearly aimed at children and my little one loves MusiCan and the animated screens which go with it.
There are various levels of learning in each collection from identifying animals to learning your way around a keyboard. Here are a couple screen shots:
If you are not aware of Foxit then it’s a software program for managing Adobe PDF documents. The most notable feature is the ability for Foxit to launch and read PDF docs without the long wait time experienced with Adobe software. Foxit is now available for your U3 flash drive.
