This year’s list includes some of the most highly rated apps, both by educators and by parents, and features a range that spans from interactive iBooks to current images of the universe, and from free video software to award-winning STEM curricula. For every app we’ve listed, we’ve included a brief description, device compatibility, suggested use, features, price, and a link to a more in-depth summary with an option to purchase on iTunes or Google Play. Don’t see an app you love on this list? Be sure to let us know—or leave a suggestion in the comment section. (Apps are listed in alphabetical order.) Name: Animoto What is it?
