10 most downloaded iPhone apps in the world - Business Insider

10 most downloaded iPhone apps in the world - Business Insider | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Facebook is still dominating the iPhone app world, but Chinese-made apps are quickly catching up.
Facebook-owned apps like WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram were among the most-downloaded iPhone apps in the world during the first quarter of 2018, according to new data from app intelligence firm Sensor Tower.

But it was a Chinese music video app called Tik Tok that flattened the competition with more than 45 million downloads over the course of the last three months.

In fact, Chinese apps from internet behemoths like Tencent and Baidu are slowly catching up to Facebook's hold on the app world.

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Free iPad Apps for Creating Animated Movies

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Free iPad Apps for Creating Animated Movies | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Last night I answered an email from a reader who was looking for a free alternative to Tellagami. Tellagami hasn't been updated to work with iOS 11 so if you've updated your iPad, the app won't work. Tellagami says that an update is coming, but I'm not holding my breath waiting for that. They said the same thing about the Android app and eventually just removed the Android app from Google Play. So if you're looking for a free iPad app to use to create animated videos, try one of the following three options.

10 Apps Teens are Using that Parents Need to Know - Appsolutely April

10 Apps Teens are Using that Parents Need to Know - Appsolutely April | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Not all social apps are bad. Most of the apps our kids use are truly an extension of your child’s “real world” social life. For the most part, our kids talk to people they only talk to in “real life.” With the influence of technology in our kids social lives, we can’t panic or over think every single thing, but we do need to empower each other and be aware of what our kids are doing when they are online and engaged in these apps. We teach our children how to swim so they don’t drown and the same is true for online social behaviors. We have to talk to our kids and teach them how to navigate through this online world. I believe strongly in not blocking everything, but in my opinion, there are certain apps that are just off-limits and I will share those with you in this post. The problem in most cases is that parents just don’t know how bad some of these apps can really be. The truth is told so perfectly by Kevin Honeycutt when he says, “Our kids are growing up on a digital playground and no one is on recess duty.” So true.

50 Of The Best Writing Apps For The iPad - TeachThought

50 Of The Best Writing Apps For The iPad - TeachThought | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
The best writing apps for iPad, like any concept of ‘best,’ is subjective and further based on need and circumstance.

Are you a poet drafting when inspiration strikes? A student taking notes and writing essays? A novelist that usually uses a desktop, but needs their new iPad Pro to do work on the go?

While the idea of writing more than a few hundred words on an iPad may seem crazy, using the iPad as a powerful portable writing tool allows you to take advantage of inspiration whenever and wherever it strikes. And with iPad screens now approaching 13″ and capable of supporting USB connections to enable standalone keyboards, it’s easier and more comfortable than ever to draft a masterpiece while away from your desk with the help of an app, an iPad, and a good idea.
