These are two great interactive eBook titles. They both cover popular movies that should resonate with many younger kids, and they’re both very well done in eBook app form. My daughter and I have both enjoyed the Toy Story 2 (and 3) apps very much.
Here’s a nice idea for this back-to-school time of year …
iAppsForStudents today announced a Back to School Sale containing steep discounts on software from the some of the best independent Mac, iPhone, and iPad developers. More than 50 independent developers are participating in the sale contributing over 100 applications with great discounts. The sale, which focuses on students and teachers but is open to anyone, runs from August 15th till September 1st.
The two indie publishers who have organized the sale are Random Accident, whose apps include Syllabus – as student organizer app for the Mac (which they’ve got reduced from $19 to $9 for the sale); and Blue Lightning Labs.
I had a quick browse around the iApps for Students site, and there are some good apps taking part in the sale. I do wish they would add an ability to sort by category on the site though – so that those looking just for study / school related apps could find them more quickly.
If you’re in back-to-school apps search mode, or just after a little savings on apps from indie developers, you can follow the sale on Twitter or head over here to check out all the apps on sale:
