I had recently downloaded a variety of apps that I wanted to play with, so today’s app review has no evident theme. There is a little of something for everyone. My personal favorites were Solve the Outbreak, and Constitution for iPad (and I am, most definitely, not a history buff). Check them out, and give some serious thought about getting Apps Gone Free (last link on the page). Enjoy your shopping!
VideoScience – Short videos that you could use to show the entire class, or assign to individuals as a reteaching method, or if they are absent.
SkyOrb – Awesome app if you teach anything about space.
Solve the Outbreak – This would be fun for any class, but really applies to health, science, and/or sociology. The app was developed by the Center for Disease Control and takes kids through problem-solving activities where they have to utilize multiple resources to solve the outbreak.
Constitution for iPad – An extremely thorough digital resource for anything to do with the Constitution including the famous photograph and biographical information on all of the signers.
SitUps – This app plans your daily ab workout for you. It tracks and motivates the user. There are apps by the same developer for running (5K, 10K, and 21 K versions), squats, push ups, pull ups, and a combo app.
GoodEar Melodies – This app is free for a limited time. It randomly generates a melody, and you must correctly play it back to earn points. You can customize it to any level, so is good for all musicians.
AppsGoneFree – You can access a variety of free apps on here that are not normally free. You have to check it often, though, as most are only free for a short time.
