We are very much hoping to create a huge repository of peer reviewed apps for teachers and educators to access for free and at any time they want.Yes, it is not easy to cover all the subject areas because of the paucity of resources but we will do our best to provide each teacher no matter what subject they teach, with apps to help them improve their teaching in their content area.
