The first list is the apps from my notes for our 7-25-12 workshop.  We will continue to update this list as time goes by.  Thanks for being so supportive of our efforts in education!

DISCLAIMER:  please remember, that we troll the free app applications often looking for new apps to share.  Apps are often free for a short period of time to showcase them and promote them, and then they will become a paid app again.  So, don't be upset with us if you go to get an app and it is no longer a free app.  I am starting a wish list with notifications turned on on Appshopper so I might be able to pick up some of the paid apps I like without having to pay for them!  After all, I am the original cheap skate!  Happy App Shopping!
