Offtime app

The Offtime app might be worth exploring if you are trying to find the elusive work-life balance and find your phone distracts you. It is free but there are in app purchases which you might want to explore before you download the app. Basically, you can turn your phone off for a certain amount of time but can allow certain people to contact you in that time. It’s an app from Germany  and has been around for about 3 years now. Tech Crunch has a comprehensive review of it here. You can download it here. It has had sound reviews across the net and is probably worth at least considering . The official Offtime site explains it all very clearly. The iPhone version appears to be paid and not as versatile as the Android version.

10 Best Android Apps

Most of these  apps are free but a couple are paid and under $2. I really like the Paper Camera one. The apps are basically for getting a really cool look for your phone, staying up to date with technology information and getting some good functionality.  Phones are not cheap so it’s important to get the best out of them and find the apps which suit you and your life. They are not just a phone these days. Smartphones can be used to enhance so many aspects of your life these days. They are not just talk and text.  If they can play the part and look cool well, that’s a bonus!

Mobile Phone WhiteBoard app

WhiteBoard app4DSoftTech has a free WhiteBoard app which is so easy to use on a mobile phone. I would not even have considered a WhiteBoard app as an option on my phone but this one has good functionality and is easy to use.KidsBoard I actually like the KidsBoard. I think it is wrongly named! I use this aspect of WhiteBoard a lot because there are so many good features if you want to put something together. The WhiteBoard site explains very clearly what it can do and gives some good visual information as well. It is exclusively an Android app at this stage. There are other apps on their site you might like to investigate.

Cross curriculum apps

cross curriculum appsI subscribe to the SimpleK12 teacher learning community site. Some of the resources are paid but if you subscribe to the site you get notification of the free resources as well. This time it was 20 apps for cross curriculum work. I knew a lot of the apps but others of them I did not know. They were Android and iPad apps so that is even handier. You can follow the link here if you are interested and it’s a site worth keeping in touch with. Some good apps for maths, science and EALD/ESL but other worthwhile apps too.

Best apps for students

Doc Scan HDIf you do a search for top “5 apps for students” you will come up with a vast array of apps the world thinks are the best apps for students. We are all different. We all teach differently. We all use technology differently and we are all dealing with different content. It stands to reason there would be a wealth of choice for the best student apps. One thing which is consistent these days is cloud storage so something like DropBox, Google Drive or SkyDrive are must have apps in 2014. The other thing which comes up regularly is a scanner app. Yes, you can use your iPad as a document scanner. This was news to me. I had never thought of my iPad doubling as a scanner nor had I thought to use it that way. If I want a copy of a document I’ll photograph it. I learnt that from my students. A number of them take a shot of their timetable as soon as they get it so they have an electronic copy of their timetable on their smartphone. I tell them to do that now because it saves time wasted and worry when they cannot remember their timetable. I must take a picture of mine for this year. Doc Scan HD comes well recommended and I have downloaded it to see what the difference is. I have photographed receipts, worksheets etc so I am not sure there is a benefit in using a scanner. They are so popular I am thinking there has to be an advantage. In the meantime , have a look at the best student apps:
