There are roughly 3,000 new apps submitted every week to the Apple App Store. There have been more than 75 billion (BILLION) apps downloaded to date. That’s a crazy number of people creating and using apps.

What’s a top-notch teacher or student to do? Where do you turn for the best apps? You can certainly browse around the app store, do some searchin’ and likely ask a friend or colleague about what you should be using.

Another simple way to find out about new apps is take note of what the blogs are talking about. Sites like the Daily Genius work to cover all things ‘smart’ and that includes education. To that end, here are the editors’ picks for their top 25 apps they’re seeing being used in classrooms (and at home) around the world.
