iTooch by Edupad App Review

iTooch by Edupad offers apps for:
  • Elementary - Grades 3-5 in Language Arts, Math, Science, and Health
  • Middle School - Grades 6-8 in Language Arts, Math, Health, and Music
  • SAT preparation in Math, Critical Thinking, Biology II, and US History II
  • Languages - TOEFL and French
Most offer free trials.  I tried the Language Arts for 8th grade which offered only the first exercise for free.  It was enough for me to get an idea of how things would roll and help me decide whether or not to go ahead with a purchase.  The app was easy to navigate and the content was grade appropriate and varied.  Otherwise, these apps are $4.99 - a fair/competitive rate in my opinion.

Here are some general factoids:
  • there are 1500 - 6000 questions per title
  • comply with Common Core Standards
  • users unlock levels and receive badges for achievements
  • math apps come with a virtual blackboard and calculator
  • a lesson summary accompanies each chapter, so the user is learning to succeed
  • no internet connection is required
  • the app will automatically sync for updates when you do have internet access
  • Apple, Android, and Windows compatible
