Educational Apps Gone Free

There are now more than 350,000 education apps available to download on the app store. Most of them cost money, however, and if you laid all that end-to-end, you’d have several million pounds in a long line. Not everyone wants to pay for their apps, so we’re having a look at our favourite free ones currently available. We can’t pretend in any objective way that these apps are the ‘best’ free apps, but they’re all interesting and fun in their own ways.

Want to try great apps without hurting your wallet? We've selected apps that are now free. Remember, prices can change quickly and without notice, these apps may not be free anymore when you read this post.
