(Full disclosure, I have written some of the reviews of apps on the site – Spatial Reasoning  for elementary and Logic and Creative Problem Solving  for middle school.)

appoLearning is a relatively new guy on the block when it comes to educational app reviews.  The site comes from the developers of appolicious.  They recognized the complexities of finding apps on the iTunes stores, and produced a site that gives you many more tools to narrow down your search.

appoLearning is just as ambitious, though the format is a bit different.  “Experts” review educational apps using a special report card, and describe their top 5 in each category.  Some of the apps are free, and others are not.  If an app scores highly enough to be in the top 5, though, you can be sure that it is well worth its price.  One of the highest price apps that I reviewed, Dragon Box, for example, is one of the best educational apps I’ve ever run across.

If you are a parent or teacher who is completely overwhelmed when you search for “education” apps on the iTunes app store, then appoLearning is the perfect antidote.
