Katie and I can't cover the entire education app industry by ourselves. Luckily, there are dozens of other sites specifically devoted to education app reviews for teachers and students.
We definitely need help to decide what app will work best for any given context. It is great to learn from other teachers how they are using apps in an actual classroom.
Use information for teachers and students!

There are some major education technology trends that are disrupting the current education model. Here's the breakdown.
There has always been at least some sort of disconnect between how things like mobile learning are taught in a classroom and how things work in the 'real world'.

Is your iPad getting slow? Check out these 7 tricks to speed up your iPad. This post delivers long-term results, and it explains what does NOT work as well.
I have been having 'battery' issues with my iPhone so this post was timely. I use my iphone for personally and professional use almost 24/7 and often the battery is not lasting the day (particularly when I use camera/video/email/social networking/fitness tracking apps all day eg weekends!) I don't personally agree with all of it. In my opinion, by disabling some of this features you are also 'depowering' the device. I do agree with disabling the Location Services feature on 'unnecessary' apps that you don't regularly use. I also agree with disabling the Notifications function on many apps (I've just done this on the majority of mine so will be interested to see if it makes a difference.). As with any 'tips and tricks' type advice I'd give it a go (as long as it is on a 'surface' level and not delving into the inner workings of the device and also that you have the confidence to 'revert' things if you need to), if it makes a difference for you then it was worth it.
