Butterflies in the sky, you can go twice as high. Just take a look, it's on one of those apps on your iPad, it's Reading Rainbow. Yeah, the song doesn't work so well with those lyrics, does it? Well, Executive Editor Susie started singing it the other day and we sort of derived a little inspiration from it and decided to scope out a few apps you can read. And don't worry, this isn't a column where I regurgitate the three e-book readers available in either of the App Stores. We actually found some pretty cool apps, including one that has every piece of information you could ever want to know about Apple's computer history, an iOS app for sad, emotional poetry buffs, and the link to an amazing website full of all the creative inspiration you could ever hope for.
Here at Mac|Life headquarters, we believe that sharing is caring. That's right: every bit of news that we could possibly want our colleagues to be privy to, we shout it out loud from the industrial-sized soapboxes stashed away under our desks. And when we can't physically make proclamations here at the office, we do so with our Macs and iOS devices on the go. In this edition of Free App Friday, we're featuring three apps that'll help you get the word out about whatever it is you've got going on, and keep you in the know about your neighbor's agenda, too.
It is my belief that the best time to go on a winter trip is when everybody has about had it with winter trips.

So I'm out of here with my iPad, iPod touch and trusty MacBook Pro. Here are a few free apps I fired up for this occasion. I'll see you guys when I get back. Hopefully I have a tan.
