Whether you’re looking for an app to help your pigtailed kindergartener master her first lessons, or you’re a grad student frantically sucking down coffee and pulling all nighters working on your thesis, there are some great iPhone apps that can help you accomplish your educational goals; whatever they may be. I took these few for a test drive for you and found them to be every bit as fun as they are educational. In fact, kids will have so much fun using these apps, they won’t even notice they’re doing something educational—what could be better than that?
Documents to Go
In the Fall 2009 issue of iPhone Life magazine, I authored an article that looked at the two major mobile application suites that allowed iPhone users to work with Microsoft Office documents and spreadsheets (iphonelife.com/issues/Fall2009/TurningIphoneMobileOffice). With the release of the iPad, developers including Apple, have stepped up to the plate to offer a selection of apps for viewing, editing, and creating documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on the go with the iPad. In addition, Apple included support for Bluetooth-enabled external keyboards in the iPad.
