i-Pad Apps for Education
iPad apps which support learning. Apps are free (when I last checked) unless otherwise stated. I am still adding apps and information to this site so check back regularly
Chrome Browser - The ipad comes with Safari but Chrome can be handy to use, especially with Google Apps for Education (GAFE).
Photon Browser - $6.49 on sale currently, usually around $12– enables flash sites to play on an ipad. Many game sites and some video sites like Youtube use Flash and they won’t play on an ipad in an ordinary browser like Safari or Chrome. Download link

Synchs between devices. Android phone app
Download app to computer – This enables you to work offline. Need to press synch button when you open and close this each time (if online) for best results. Auto-synches on other devices.
Get Web Clipper for your Browser Allows you to easily 'clip' a web page straight into Evernote. If you use more than one browser you need to download it in each one. NB - you can’t use web clipper on the ipad but can view pages that have been clipped.
