Education Applications for iPhone
I remember when my cell phone only made calls. The new iPhone will still dial phone numbers, but it also runs 148 add-on applications with more than 35,000 total to choose from. With the iPhone students can now learn Spanish, practice their typing skills, and view priceless works of art. About a quarter of the applications, commonly known as “apps,” are free (others usually cost less than $10 each), so Apple users are taking full advantage, with approximately 10 million downloads so far.
Here I have compiled a few of my favorite apps, many of which are free, for the busy and wallet conscious student.
