Kurt Lowe's insight:

Apps are changing the world every second of the day new apps are continuously being  uploaded to app markets  but can any educational apps really be interesting enough  and good enough to keep young students and older students attention and actually benefit there learning.

 

iI have mixed feelings about it I agree that having an iPad is useful I as a uni student  myself  I find it a life saver having an iPad  instead of having to lug around heavy textbooks or even. a  laptop

 

having  PDF versions of text books on my iPad makes studying  researching and note taking a lot more simple.

But, if you talk to developers, they're still focused on the iPhone's software platform, iOS.
Kurt Lowe's insight:

Apple  vs Android

 

who will win? No one really knows  both sides have amazing technology with there own set of Pros & Cons.

 

but is one better then the other ? It's a interesting battle  apple and android are very different in ways such as Apple stays in there comfort zone and sticks with the same similar style of phone  and over time gradually upgrading software and hardware in there devices 

 

then you have android that have multiple styles  of phones and devices  Some are  better then others which could lead to confusion  to what device to buy when purchasing a android 

 

also the  Apple App Store   has a lot more restrictions  in comparison to androids  but in my opinion apple has a lot more  higher quality apps then the android market .

Kurt Lowe's insight:

Beating the app market system is everyone's dream being able to get the apps you want without having to spend a couple dollars to get  them but is beating the system really worth It ?

Kurt Lowe's insight:

Many people should consider watching this guide before they start developing there app  to many people are flooding the App Store with replicas of the same app over and over again to try cut in on someone else's idea

 

this video shows 10 simple steps to come up with an app idea and also demonstrates how to fine tune and improve your app idea so it doesn't suck.
