Every month Educational Technology and Mobile Learning features a short list of the best iPad apps for students. We pick these apps from the different review lists we did before and our selection is based on the app productivity, its rating, popularity and whether or not it conforms to our evaluation criteria or not. We are being very strict in our selections because the apps market is full of junk and if you don't try an app and attest to its usability then chances are you might end up recommending junk to readers.
As you can see the list is very short and has just 6 apps. It is taken for granted that your students are already familiar and using those popular apps such as Dropbox, Evernote, Instapaper, Instagram..etc that is why we do not have them in this lists. Check out these resources for other learning apps we posted before.
