Appolicious Launches AppoLearning Education App

There are few technological innovations that have changed the culture in the past several years as significantly and mobile devices. Whether your preference is a tablet or a smartphone, chances are you’ve got one or both of them on you at all times. Studies show that more than 50% of Americans now carry smartphones, and those numbers are only going to increase as the technology improves and prices go down. Part of the pull is the convenience of cloud computing, which allows you to move your files, music and photos from one device to another with ease. But most people make the switch because of the hundreds of thousands of apps available for iOS or Android devices. App technology can now help you book a restaurant reservation, generate turn by turn directions and even invest in the stock market from wherever you may be. And since many of these apps are free, it’s both a powerful and affordable service. Thanks to the developers behind Appolicious, the app discovery site that allows you to search for any sort of service you require, that convenient access will now help educators uncover the best learning apps on the market.

The new release, which just launched this week is called AppoLearning. And the goal is a simple one: to empower teachers, parents and other interested parties to wade through the massive amounts of apps available to find the best one for their needs. According to Alan Warms, the founder of Appolicious, it’s a simple idea. Education is a complicated interest area, with many variables. You cannot just search for an educational app. You need to know if the age range is appropriate, if the subject matter fits your needs and if the app comes from a source trustworthy enough to put it in the hands of your children.

The AppoLearning site streamlines the discovery process through the creation of eighty-four distinct educational categories. You’ll find options such as life science, reading and social interaction, with each one further broken down by age range. Once you choose your particular section of interest you’ll see five recommended apps. These are supposed to represent the best choices in that category, with ratings as close to 100 as possible. And the best part is, the chosen apps are handpicked by an actual educator. You’ll see their photo and bio right there on the site, so you’ll see how their experience led to those choices. The educator will describe each app, and why they were chosen over the thousands that are available.

The educator isn’t alone in determining the recommendations. AppoLearning employs a group of reviewers who rate each app. These folks are paid to take the time to truly understand each app, using the 1 to 100 rating system to give you the best possible options. Now, the only sticking point is that most of these recommended apps will cost money. It makes sense that the best options will carry a small fee, as the programming teams put an awful lot of time and energy into each winning app. The silver lining is that these paid apps will never interrupt a child’s work with advertising or requests to purchase additional games, levels or content. If you’re still unsure, look to the bottom of the page and you’ll see a comments section populated by users just like you.

You will find a sixth app promoted, and those developers actually paid to be listed. It’s a simple way for AppoLearning to offer this level of in depth, browse now capability without having to charge its users. But those sponsored apps will be labeled, so you’ll know why they are appearing in that group. As long as apps continue to purchase these slots and users take advantage, the site will grow. They’re already planning on adding around seventy additional categories, with each one vetted by its own professional educator.
