    I like this list! I’ve used Evernote and it’s proven to be extremely useful, especially as a college student and my life is a mess. I didn’t realize there were so many hidden gems in the app store! However, for some reason the dictionary app requires an internet connection. Kind of annoying when I don’t have signal. Sigh, but the other apps were really useful. Thanks!

    Most of those are a really good idea. I love Explain Everything and Book Creator. However, I really don’t see what twitter is doing in the list here. It almost seems like a joke… I mean, what is twitter teaching? How to write in text language? How not to write correctly and properly? Or maybe is it a course in bullying? Because there sure is a lot of that going on there…

    Honestly, if even HALF of the stuff that’s available today when I was in school, I’d be a genius right now. I’m amazed at the stuff that wasn’t allowed in the classrooms are now what people use IN the classrooms. Makes me wonder would else to expect in the future. Hopefully, more good will come of these devices even more so in the future! Maybe cutting class time learning in half?

    I’ve never heard of any of these. I’ve actually been looking for an app to help me with phonemes if anyone has any suggestions!

    My favorite education application would be Duolingo. It helps me so much with my Spanish since I am not currently taking any Spanish classes. I love that there are more and more education apps being introduced to smart phones because technology is so essential to learning and capturing interest these days.

      Duolingo is probably the best app ever created in my opinion. I have to download it again and start it back up but I was learning so quickly and easily I loved it. I would definitely recommend that app to anyone who is interested in learning a new language. It is easy and a little fun as well.

      Google is a great app all around. I have owned both Apple and Android and in my opinion the google search app is amazing. You can definitely learn anything and the Google Now feature is way more accurate than Siri.

    Even though my iPhone got broke in the past days, these apps seems very interesting. I was looking for more educational apps, and this article seems to be exactly what I needed.

    I suppose that I am a digi-traditionalist. The Google search is how I learn anything currently. I would be nice if there was a bit more diversity in search engines, but Google crushed almost all competition. I’m waiting for Google Nation, a real-live country owned by Google to be developed… it’s coming, believe it. Heh, they’re more prolific than Hello Kitty and that chick has everything.

    I really love the idea of spending more of the free time we waste on our phones during the off hours of the day between tasks and commutes doing something productive like educating ourselves and others instead of just wasting them on brainless games like Fruit Ninja or Angry Birds.

    I know quite a few people who have children that would get totally into those apps and help their development. I’m also going to check out “DragonBox” like the person above me mentioned. Sounds great!

    Thank you for this blog post! I am constantly looking for education apps just like these and I only had about 10% of them already! Thanks again.

    I follow a homeschooling blog regularly and one of the apps she often mentions and sings the praises of is Dragonbox, which is a game that “secretly teaches algebra”. For those interested, here is the link: http://dragonboxapp.com/

    I’m also surprised that Minecraft isn’t mentioned, although I can see how some people might not recognize the educational applications of it and might see it as “just a game”. There are tons of parents and kids who swear by its educational concepts such as circuit building, logic, architecture, and art. There’s a lot to be learned from it especially if it can be integrated into another curriculum.

      Oh I love Minecraft! Great teaching tool. But we also turned Walt Disney World into homeschool for a week! 🙂

    I’m tech savvy, but have never heard of these apps before. I have no children so that may be why i didn’t look into things like that. I’m a huge kid at heart, so this inspires me to go check them out. I may end up having fun with these apps. I have not used any educational apps, never in my life. There are way too many distractions. Other apps that can kill brain cells, but we are mostly attracted to them. We are attracted to things that are not good for us. I had no idea that such apps existed. Thanks for the heads up. I will try them.

    As people of the tech-savvy generation, we spend so much time on our electronic devices, whiling our time away for no reason. Kudos to you for highlighting these apps that are actually productive in their usage! It really does mean a lot.

    I am admittedly, not the most tech savvy person I know. My son mocks me regularly about my limited technological abilities. I love all the advancements and apps that are being created. There will be pros and cons, I’m sure. But that’s what I have my son for hahaha.

    He took to technology like a duck to water and that was 25 yrs ago, when he first went to preschool. NOW…?! A child can come home from a day in grade school and have a business up and running before bedtime… It’s amazing and mind boggling.

    I think all the possibilities and potential for continued advancement are great!
