I know none of you back-to-schoolers want to think about it, but a whole new school year is about to start. And while getting back into the swing of classes after taking the summer off can be a drag, it never hurts to be prepared.

That's why Panoramic Software is holding a special sale on Calc Pro and Calc Pro HD. For tomorrow (8/31) only, you can pick up either app for only $0.99. That's $7 off the iPhone version and $9 off for iPad. Sounds like a great deal if you ask me.

Five Of The Most Recommended Apps This Week: August 12-16, 2013

Posted by Chris Kirby on August 19th, 2013

I'll bet you're sitting around wondering to yourself, "Self, I wonder what apps Powerslyde is recommending this week?" Lucky dog! We've got the answer to that very question.

Back to school is in full effect this week:

Khan Academy
iTunes U
MLB.com At Bat

Khan Academy has changed the education game forever, and now no student worth his or her salt should be without it - particularly for its in-depth math and science instruction. Likewise, iTunes U delivers a miraculous wealth of content all via a teeny-tiny app. And is there ANYONE on the planet who has not heard of Evernote? It's only the premiere cross-platform note taking app.

Finally, all students need apps for their free time, so Poshmark is there to help ladies (and occasionally gentlemen) find amazing deals on clothes, while MLB.com At Bat keeps all baseball fans in touch with their favorite teams in the home stretch of the season.

Thanks to Powerslyde, the app that recommends apps, for our list this week. What apps do you recommend? Drop us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter. See you next week!

Apple Going Back To School - Devs Can Now Discount iOS Apps For Education

Posted by Chris Hall on August 10th, 2010

Remember the days when Apple 2's were in every school in America? All the little kids used to flock around the gleaming new computers (they were never upgraded, so they quickly became dilapidated old computers) to play their favorite educational game. Some liked Math Blaster, some liked Number Crunchers, but nobody could get enough of the Oregon Trail.

Well the day is coming (hopefully) that every student gets an iPad for the classroom, and Apple is anticipating by offering developers the option to sell their apps at bulk discount. With just a simple checkmark, developers can now opt go sell app bundles of 20 or more for 50% discount.

The adoption of the iPad will certainly take time, but some medical programs are stepping into the tech world. Stanford's Medical School has launched a program to give iPad's to all incoming 1st years, and many other schools are ditching books altogether, using VitalSouce (which has an app coming soon) as their source for books.

Who knows, if more educational entities start giving out iPad's, maybe I'll go back for that Master's degree.
