* LookTel Money Reader, by IPPLEX: This is an iPhone app (we use on our iPads) to help students with vision impairments to use and identify paper money. It uses the camera to "see" an individual bill and says the amount out loud.
* Magnifying Glass, by Falcon In Motion LLC: We use this to magnify any text. It uses the camera to zoom in and out. (You can actually use the Apple camera to take pics and zoom, too.)
*Color ID Free, by GreenGar Studios: We don't use this much but it's helpful for a few situations. This app, combined with voiceover, will tell you what color things are. You can choose two settings, simple colors or complex colors.
* Accounts 2 Checkbook, by SVT Software: We use this to manage our bank account for the coffee shop. You can enter transactions and take pics of your receipts then run spending reports. There is a free, limited version to get a peek.
*TimeClock ST, by ScavaTec LLC: We use this to keep track of our payroll. Each student has a secret PIN they use so no one can clock in/out for someone else. It totals the hours and our Manager uses them to figure paychecks.
*Calculator: We use a free version with big numbers for vision/physical needs.
*Prezi: This is a FREE app to create super cool presentations. It looks more like a concept map on steroids and less like a slide show. Very cool. This app isn't as powerful as using Prezi on the computer but it's convenient.
*Merriam Dictionary: This is a general dictionary app, but the great thing about it is the speaking/microphone feature. You can say a word and it looks it up, reads it back to you, and then you can spell it correctly.
*Dragon: You can speak into it and it writes what you say. Several students have shared that the iPad version is much easier to use than the desktop version.
*Apple Notes: You can use the microphone to pretty much the same thing as Dragon. It writes what you say.
*We have every Angry Birds app ever made: If you don't know what that is.... well, that's just impossible in my classroom.
*Candy Crush: Highly addictive to students and staff alike.
*Glow Hockey: two or one players
*Art of Glow
*Art in Motion
*Talk'n Photos, by Intermediate District 287: Take pics and record audio. You can use this app for many reasons but we like to use it to record recipes.
