I recently told you about 5 Must Have Apps For Parents. Everybody is finally settling back in to school and getting comfortable with the day-to-day flow of school time, but that doesn’t mean we are any more organized or less busy! It just means we’re getting through it. There are lots of apps out there that can make our lives easier, keep the kids busy (and learning at the same time), and even help us with helping the kids with all of those fractions and other math things we’ve long since forgotten how to do. Let’s take a look at some more cool apps for your iPad and smartphone.
School A to Z
School A to Z is an awesome app for those parents who have long since forgotten how to do math problems or all of those grammar rules. This free app was created specifically for parents, to give you the help you need in English, Math, Spelling and Technology, so that you can help your kids with their homework.
You can even create games and other activities so your child will have fun while learning.
Forgot the directions to your child’s next soccer practice? Looking for a Starbucks after dropping off the kids? Then you’ll love Dragon Go! Made by the same people who created the Dragon Dictation voice recognition software, Dragon Go! is a free app that allows you to find whatever it is your looking for simply by talking to it.
You just load your zip code into the app. Then, you press a button to record your voice telling the app what you are looking for (addresses, songs, the weather…just about anything!) Dragon Go! then does its thing and gives you results from many sources you probably already go to like Google, Yelp!, Fandango, and more. Click on your choice, then click over to the site, and you’re all set.
