As mobile devices such as phones and tablets become increasingly more common, more and more people are looking for ways to use their mobile devices for work. Fortunately, there is no shortage of free apps available to try. Unfortunately, there are so many, it's often hard to know where to begin. Our staff has tried to do some of that work for you. We've weeded through the most commonly used apps to pick our top twelve apps for instructors. We found apps that can help you work on the go, create a lesson anywhere, conduct a lecture from the palm of your hand, or just organize your thoughts in a form that you can access anywhere at anytime.
All of these apps are available for Apple or Android devices. We have focused in particular on apps that are free and work well with tablets.
