We check our smart phones multiple times throughout the day. From Facebook to Twitter we are always connected to the world. Most of us treat our phones as a “must-carry” item and it is as important as our house key. So, it only makes sense to use our phones as a learning tool. Below you will find apps that are related to learning and organization. This list of apps is for Apple users. I will make a future post for Windows and Android users as well.
