"Goal for this site? Parents often ask for additional help at home with particular skills, so our technology committee gathered some educational iPad and iPhone apps to make the process of "searching" for apps easier. These apps are NOT to replace standard homework in any way.  The committee just wanted to offer other options for those parents wishing to download iPad or iPhone apps to help at home. Example: Telling time, counting money, etc."
