This resource offers a great variety of free iPad apps for social studies content. Although it fails to detail each app in the browser, it links you to a detailed description and "How To" for each app. I personally like "Old and New: Primary Sources in the 21st Century" and Changing America on iPads. Great apps to try for all of those beginning or already instituting iPads into their classroom.
