The teachers in our districts are searching for apps that engage students as they practice skills they need to obtain.. There are apps for you to keep track of weight loss, keep you organized, keep you entertained and help you plan your meals. The list goes on and on. Disney World even has an app to use when you visit their theme parks. You can find out the wait time of your favorite ride.
