A couple of weeks ago we shared a collection of iPad apps for back to school and today we are featuring another collection inspired by iTunes App Store’s Get Ready for School. These are apps we curated specifically to help students get into the ‘school mode’. We featured apps that provide students with homework help, access to educational materials, help with math and many more. Check them out and share with us your feedback.
