iTunes U is the newest mobile learning application from Apple. Students can use iTunes U on their iPhone or iPod Touch. iTunes U allows professors to distribute digital lesson plans to their students, anytime and anywhere.

With the iPhone students can now learn Spanish, practice their typing skills, and view priceless works of art. About a quarter of the applications, commonly known as “apps,” are free (others usually cost less than $10 each), so Apple users are taking full advantage, with approximately 10 million downloads so far.

Here I have compiled a few of my favorite apps, many of which are free, for the busy and wallet conscious student.
