Quixey

If you are using tablets or iOS devices in your classroom then you are constantly looking for new and exciting apps to share with students.  There are soooooooo many apps and so much to sort that it can be very frustrating and time consuming.  In the past, I reviewed a website which recommends apps for special needs students and also a website called Smar Tots that reviews apps by age and content and also provides you with reports based the student's use.  Today I found Quixey which is a search engine for apps.  Pretty unique idea (darn should have invented that!) and I found Quixey very easy to use and the search results were excellent.  You type in a search string or what you want the app to do and then voila you get your app results and you can then filter by free/paid or the platform (android, iOS, facebook, etc.).

Now What?

Quixey seems like a great time saving tool for teachers who are looking to find apps for their class but don't want to search around the market.  Quixey could also be a great tool for students and parents as well.
