Educational Apps

There are thousands of educational apps that can be incorporated into the classroom, or used by parents at home to facilitate learning. Today, I will focus solely on apps for the iPad. However, I will continue to search and provide resources for smartphones, and other tablets. It is critical that we provide students with a medium of learning that peak their interest, and relates to how 21st century students learn. Here are a few of latest educational apps for the iPad or iPhone by content. I would to get some feedback on these apps. Were they useful? Were they user friendly? Also, let me know of some other great educational apps for personal devices. Thanks!
