San Francisco, California (PRWEB) September 30, 2012
AppyMall, a new marketplace for educational apps, has been launched by Technology in Education, a popular review site, to help teachers and parents find quality children’s apps. With a searchable database by grade level and skill, the site helps cut through the clutter of the app marketplace. AppyMall can be found at http://www.appymall.com.
AppyMall allows users to search for educational apps by grade level and learning skill, such as math, language arts, or reading. The site divides apps into anchor stores that organize book, game and educational apps into categories such as: preschool, elementary school, middle school, speech and language, special needs and apps with lesson plans.
Within each anchor store, apps are sub-categorized by subject and price so that consumers can find relevant learning content quickly. There also is an option for the user to click on the app description to put it on a wish list, or to mark that they own it.
"AppyMall is an amazing resource to learn about educational apps. Ease of navigation into app categories, great prices, and all the corresponding educational information makes AppyMall an essential tool for families, graduate students, K-12 educators and higher education professors," said Robin Parker, a professor at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale in the Speech, Language, and Communication department at the Abraham Fischler School of Education.
The need for AppyMall, which categorizes apps by grade level and learning skill, became evident as the Technology in Education team witnessed the frustration of teachers looking for specific types of apps for their classroom, and parents seeking apps to foster learning at home.
It has become an important marketing tool for educational app developers.
“Folks at Appy Mall go beyond merely reviewing your app. They not only critique, but even suggest critical improvements,” said Joy Deep Nath, co-founder of StudyPad. “But what really sets AppyMall apart is its focus on curriculum and the core education value of the app. This helps them create very fine-tuned, but extremely useful categories in education, like apps with lesson plans, apps for special education, etc. It’s simply the best place for app discovery.”
AppyMall was founded in 2012 to help parents and teachers cut through the clutter of the app marketplace to find quality educational apps for children. A sitemap can be found at http://techinspecialed.com/appymall-directorysitemap/#appsbystore.
