The App Store for the iPod touch and Apple iPhone contains a very impressive collection of mobile applications that can take on a variety of tasks. They go well beyond the best-selling fart apps that everyone seems to download, because these apps can be used for educational purposes too.
Vancouver media personality Buzz Bishop has compiled eight of his favorite iPhone apps for the back to school crowd, since so many people are heading back behind those desks and re-burying their noses in books in the next week or so.
Among the highlights from his list of eight is Wikipanion, a very mobile-friendly version of Wikipedia that grants quick access to must-have information. Evernote is another must, since it synchronizes data across multiple computers.
Rounding out Buzz’s list of back-to-school iPhone apps are voice memos, Stanza (free books), FlashCard Ex (learning tool), calculators (including graphing calculators), Swede Shop (IKEA), and Shazam (music).
Do you have a favorite education-minded iPhone app that is notably missing from his list? Feel free to share through the comment form below.
