12 New iOS Learning Apps We Love

by TeachThought Staff

Keeping with the app landscape isn’t easy–so many new apps, misleading apps, weird apps, and more. Further is the issue of appearance. There are many great-looking apps that aren’t designed well for learning. Others may not look great from 10′, but upon a closer look, reveal themselves as gems.

(And then there are the worst–shiny, well-produced money-grabs with little value in education or elsewhere.)

That’s part of the reason we work to bring you what we consider learning apps worth your time. They may or may not be a fit for you, but all are apps that have something about them that separates them from the rest, designed by a developer with something to say, an idea to share, or specific expertise that we all might learn from.

Take a look, and let us know what you think on the TeachThought facebook page.

From the editor’s desk at TeachThought, here are 12 new learning apps we love for the Winter 2016!
