I have updated my annotated directory of Apple iPad apps for personal and professional use. It is available by clicking on the following link, Apple iPads Apps.
This directory identifies more than 300 apps I personally use for personal use and in my history classrooms at the University of Minnesota. With more than 750,000+ apps currently available, it is focused on free apps when possible. I most often use the Apple iPad as a media consumption device rather than a generator of media. In my history class we use the iPad apps to search for global news events, display PDF readings, and access social media created by students in the classroom such as History Music Videos through Animoto and Then and Now, the audio podcast for our global history and culture course.
Best wishes with your exploration of the iPad for personal and school use. Please send me comments.
Take care, David Arendale
