Getting free iPad apps for education

I may be late to the party on this one but figured it was worth sharing just in case others have not come across it.

The website Boy Genius Report has a section that seems to be updated with a daily post detailing iPhone apps that have gone from being paid to free. There will occasionally be a few gems in here so it is worth keeping an eye on. Here are the steps I take to make the most of this.

  1. Subscribe in your RSS reader to just the app on sale tag by using the feed http://bgr.com/apps-on-sale/feed
  2. Each day check your RSS reader for useful apps that are now free
  3. Hop over to the Volume Purchase iTunes Store and grab a few hundred licences!

Last week we managed to get Chordology for free for the Music department and I am certain there will be other useful ones in the future. Even if you don’t use them for your iPad deployment you may find some personally useful ones.

Enjoy!
