Thanks v much for your comment! We’ve starting looking for more apps to support dyslexia as this is an area of educational apps that seems to be under resourced at the moment. We’ll get on the case, dig deeper and see what we can find.

We’ve found that quite a few of the Literacy apps are motivating for pupils with dyslexia, though not all are appropriate.

Thanks again,

Dan

Just been recommended your website by a colleague and I’m thoroughly impressed!!! Easy to use and a huge time saver for any busy teacher trying to provide the most up to date resources for their pupils. Thank you!

I’m going to put a link to your site on my school’s website and VLE, plus the teachers’ page on an assembly website.

It would be good to have an image to include in the link, as it would be more obvious than a text link.

Hi Dan, Great website, just what we need in education. Love to see a site that isn’t all just about Apple apps.

I’ve wrote an app for my school and now going to start promoting it to others. I’ll email you some info about it once I’ve wrote the blurb.

Just wanted to share with you that we have released an update of our Windows classroom management software used in schools to now include support for Android tablets. Thought the App may be of interest. There is also a similar App that allows the teacher to monitor activity and interact.

Thanks for this link. Tablets as classroom management devices is an area we haven’t really investigated yet. This app looks great and we will aim to include a whole area on this subject soon.

Our local junior school have started using eduDroid in their classes at school. It has a huge range of different games including word searches, alien maths quizzes, interactive e-books so you get hours of entertainment and learning all in one!

Bugs & Buttons and Bugs & Numbers are two brilliant apps to support development in maths but also in hand-eye coordination. The graphics are brilliant. The activities include very minimal instruction so children have to figure out what to do and the app cleverly judges when the challenge is too tough and ends the activity. Really excellent, can’t recommend highly enough! Have just discovered Bugs and Bubbles too which I am about to try out.

Hi there,

What a great website, its a great help to us as we embark on using iPads in the classroom. I wonder if you could help by answering a question we are struggling to tackle. How much do you put aside as a budget for apps in a year?

Many thanks

Paula

Can you recommend an app (apart from maths 4-6) which does halving and quartering? My daughter (in Y1) is finding this hard, and says the maths 4-6 app is different to how school teach it, so I’m looking for something else.

Thanks!

A great site but very limited apps listed. I was expecting to see lots more. Have you seen the Jolly Phonics app? It is great for phonics learning and links directly to the Jolly phonics scheme used in many school. I use it with some of my class and they love it.
Could you also offer a filter to search for free apps or paid apps? I would find this very useful.

Hi there!
Thanks, your points are very valid!
As full time teachers we are a bit under pressure at the moment with a new term and new curriculum. We go through stages where we simply don’t have the time to add to the site. We also have no funding, so any improvements to the basic structure of the site, web hosting, domain renewals etc all come out of our own wallets! We are looking at encouraging others, like yourself to do some of the research for us and send us short reviews and links for great apps that we can then add to the site. We’d love to see the site growing to include many more than the 100 or so apps it currently has. If you would like to contribute further to the site, that’d be great! Do get in touch! Thanks again!

Could you recommend a kids typing app? I have an iPad with a keyboard and I’d like my 8yo to learn to type this summer, but I’m not sure which will be best both in terms of kid-friendliness and a British (rather than US English) approach to spelling.

We’ve bought a lot of apps on your recommendations, so thanks!
