Pulled from the statistics in the Apple App store. Here are the top 50 free applications in the Education store.
This android app is basically the new coloring book. I would rather there be other deeper uses, however, kids do like to color. The one point of this app is the “share with parents” feature – I think the apps we use should all have share with parents and share with teachers and that on many of the apps, it should be seamless and just happen without our intervention.
Parents can set up their details like name, email and kids name which will bring them the screenshots of activities their kids complete within the app when pressing the ‘share with parent’ button. Their creative art can also be saved to photo gallery or even better printed as a wallpaper or a calendar for your house. This way you can keep the wonderful memories of your kids to decorate their room as well.

Get paid for really working out by using Gympact on your iphone. of course the money has to come from somewhere but this is a whole new location based app. “GymPact, the startup saw a success rate of 90 percent in its six-month Boston-area trial.”
The apps and sites to help you get fit. find one and find a buddy and get moving. my personal favorite is Weight Watchers since it helped me lose 40 pounds. I am a few pounds up and going to be using my app and going back to meetings.
