50,000 (And Counting) Education Apps Worth Knowing About | Edudemic | Engaging students in the 21st century | Scoop.it

"You probably saw the title of this post and thought ‘okay there’s no friggin’ way he’s going to assemble a list of the best 50,000 education apps. But thanks to a partnership between Edudemic and FindTheBest, we’ve done just that. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to build a robust directory of, as of this writing, about 56,000 education apps.

But it’s not just a list… it’s a finely tuned directory capable of sorting out all the apps in ways not even available in the iTunes or Android stores."
