Apps for Phones

This page will contain information specific to using cell phones and iTouch/iPods in the classroom.

Apps defined:

The word "apps" is a shortened version of the word "applications" and an app is a software application designed to run on mobile technology devices. Apps are closely associated with the iPod/iPhone products but apps are available for a multitude of smart mobile devices. Different phone/mobile devices use their own "stores" for selling or making apps available for download to their specific devices. Some apps will work on specific devices due to proprietary control of the device manufacturer and the software running as the operating on the device. Google Android Phones have their own apps compared to Blackberry devices and compared to Apple devices. So when you are looking at apps for your device, make sure they are compatible with the device you use.
