Top 100 Free Education Apps

We have seen many websites offer their own take on the TOP FREE APPS for Education and can safely conclude that most of these are productivity and learning support tools. Apps such as Google Maps, Google Search, Evernote, Twitter, Pocket, Earth Viewer, Kindle, Google Chrome, iBooks, Google+, TweetyPop, Flipboard, iTunes U, Google YouTube and dare I say Facebook are often in the list.

To get a true picture of the top free apps for education, one has to go back to their iPad or iPhone and look in the AppStore. You can find a wealth of information there with regards to ratings and ranking of apps in the different categories. Apple has also made it easier for you by sorting the apps according to PAID or FREE. However, it will only show you the apps for the AppStore in your designated region or country.

I am sure that there are feeds from Apple that list these apps and how they rank in the different AppStores, internationally. While I couldn’t locate this feed, I found a website that presents a simple form to generate the list on demand.
