When it comes to schools and new technology many schools have been jumping on the iPad bandwagon. They make great personal devices: they’re lightweight, have great battery life, and have a plethora of apps available for every imaginable purpose. Given that I like to keep an eye out for new apps. Finding new apps can be frustrating, especially with newer apps that don’t yet have a good review base. One app I’ve downloaded and found very useful is AppsGoneFree. This app has a daily aggregate of paid apps that are available free for a limited time only. This is a great way to find and try out productivity apps free.
When I have a specific need I turn to google to help figure out what app would be best for me. Reviews help me figure out what functionality each app has and which app will be most useful for my purposes.
