Ya most definately. Your references to the app's you can use or have used
should be saved for the resume. Your portfolio/presentation foldder is for
the "end products" to sorta "show your wares". They are (for the most part)
interested in the fact that you can give them the finished article
on-dime&on-time rather than how you get there.

Yes these are my own thoughts and/or opinions.. Why the hell do I need to have
this disclaimer anyways?!?!?!?! It's my opinion and everyone's entitled to it.
If you don't like it, then don't read it! My employer backs me up on this as
I am one and the same person.
