IEAR - Mobile Education Apps Review

IEAR.org is a community powered review of educational applications for mobile devices. IEAR is primarily focused on iPod, iPhone, and iPad apps but there are also some mentions of Android apps. Contributions from teachers are welcome through the online submission form. Students can also make contributions if their teachers apply for student app reviewer access.

I learned about IEAR through a recent post by Vicki Davis.

Applications for Education
The increasing number of schools trying to implement the use of mobile devices in their classrooms creates a demand for a site like IEAR. IEAR's reviews could become a great resource for teachers and administrators searching for quality applications to use in their classrooms.
