A colleague asked if I could put together a list of some great Android apps for education and some great Android resources for a presentation he is doing on the Kindle Fire. Here's what I came up with:


Great Android Apps for Education and Resources for Android


Comparison to iPad

 
Every app I want or need is available on Android. For the most part the functionality and features are the same between Android and iPad versions. Sometimes the iPad version has more features, sometimes the Android version does. In general, there isn’t much difference.

Most of the apps listed below are free.

Evernote- a must have app and service for pretty much everyone - teachers, students, administrators, mom's, dad's, business people, etc. The Android App is excellent and you can sync your notebooks to your phone for offline access. Take notes, clip web sites, upload files, upload and search photos, share notebooks, and much more.

Google- search, Gmail, Calendar, Reader, Google Plus, Docs, Google Tasks, Blogger, Maps, Google Voice, Voice Search, Translate, Music, goo.gl, YouTube, and much more. They all work great, with Docs having full editing features and Translate even translating spoken word.
