Check out the coolest new educational app for iPhones!

A few months ago, EduInReview.com posted a review about the Essay Writing Wizard, an iPhone and iPod Touch application that allows students to write their essays on their iPod. The Essay Writing Wizard was created in order to transform the iPod from an organizational study tool to an interactive study tool. In addition to allowing students to write their essays on their iPod, the Essay Writing Wizard allowed students to take notes, review essay definitions and tips, and email their work to a computer. This all sounded pretty good to me, but now, the creators of the Essay Writing Wizard have created something even better. This new product is the Achievers Writing Center.

The Achievers Writing Center combines the benefits of the Essay Writing Wizard, everything you need to develop, organize, and write an excellent college essay, with personal interaction with a professional writing assistant. This assistant provides each student with unlimited support during their writing process. So if you get writer’s block or just can’t think of how to best phrase your idea, the assistant will help you. The Achievers Writing Center also provides assistance with argument development, paragraph sequence, and basic grammar and misspellings.Like the Essay Writing Wizard, the Achievers Writing Center offers iTunes apps for over 30 essay styles, including deductive essays, creative writing, and argumentative essays.

8 Must-Have Education Apps for iPhone

Education Applications for iPhone

I remember when my cell phone only made calls. The new iPhone will still dial phone numbers, but it also runs 148 add-on applications with more than 35,000 total to choose from. 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.
