There are Apps you we use on a daily basis. Well for some of us, we use them on an hourly/minute basis. What are some Apps that you use for both educational and personal productivity? What are some apps that you just Can't live without? I asked this question recently, and Facebook, AroundMe, Google were among the most used Apps.
Post any Apps that you use regularly and let us know why you like this Appl.
Has anyone else downloaded the browser Rover to use on iPads? It enables you to access Flash on your iPad. It is a FREE app that allows you to stream educational Flash content on your iPad. I downloaded it and I'm able to access Discovery Education videos. Let me know what you think.
I, too, like how they have organized the sites -- and quite a few as well. I also like that you can enter urls and searches. I did try watching flash video of The Daily Show -- I didn't get the message, "We are sorry but this device does not support blah blah blah," but after waiting several minutes, I the video didn't load so I gave up on that. I'll try some other sites and see what happens.
See attached file. It lists 20 educational apps that teachers can't live without.
I haven't had a chance to go through them all, but someone at Apple Education shared this with me.
I have loved looking and using apps regarding travelling. My daughter has found numerous apps that will allow us to navigate the city offline and find out about all that they have to offer. Our goal is to then write a review when we get back on what we found helpful and what we wished the app would do. Hopefully this will be a great learning experience.
There are several sites that publish free apps everyday. The catch is that you have to download them most of the time within a day.
One that I just discovered is APPSGoneFree. They provide you with free apps each day
Another good site is the TCEA site. It is on a google doc and they update it each day. TCEA Recommended Apps
One of my "can't live without apps" is DocScan HD Pro. This great app allows me to take photos of documents and convert them to useable electronic documents. For example, at a recent conference, there were several multi-page handouts given. I scanned each group of handouts into its own "set" allowing me to leave the paper copies for someone who wanted to carry the extra weight .
In my science classroom, I have two apps that are used a LOT! One is LabTimer. I can have up to 16 different items being independently timed from this app. The second helpful lab app is Convert Units. This tool makes it easy to change between metric and US units.
