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.
