If you are looking for quiz making software there are a lot of choices.I like to use the quiz tool built in to Edmodo,  I briefly subscribed to Pro Profs as i is the only program that will randomly choose a certain number of questions from a larger bank so that each quiz is a little different.

My "go to" favorites are Edmodo, which keeps my classes and assignments organized.  I love dropitto.me as a way for students to submit assignments.

My favorite Ipad app is Educreations for creating white board/audio presentations.
