App Test Drive, Week 2

In my undying effort to bring quality apps to our school, I employed the greatest app critics under our roof -- my seventh grade Tools for Tech students.  Over the course of three days, students were given a handful of apps and asked to play with it for 30 minutes and write a review using a Google Form.

Here are the responses.

  • Molecules: An app that allows you to look at the structure of molecules. (Rated 2.9 out of 5)
  • Paper (by 53): Create your own sketch books.  Use it for artwork or taking notes.  (Rated 3.5 out of 5)
  • Puppet Pals HD: Use puppets to tell your story. Really geared toward younger students, but who doesn't secretly hope to relive those puppet days? (Rated 3.1 out of 5)
  • StopAnimator: Create your very own stop animation video. Great to teach storyboarding, sequence, storytelling, and a host of other things. (Rated 3.9 out of 5)
