Today’s post took me much longer than most.  I wanted to give one (hopefully, new) app that was content-specific.  Since I was limiting myself to just one per subject, I wanted it to be the best one.  That required more research and exploration than usual.  I hope everyone finds something new to try and use in the classroom.  As always, each underlined app is linked to the App Store for easy downloading.  Enjoy!
