We first reviewed Abilipad in February 2013, when Deanne made it a Top Pick app. Its 4½ star rating was well-earned. This great app was just recently updated, so we're taking a fresh look at it! I've made a few additions to the review to include these new updates. Be sure to take a look at it — it's a fabulous app for students with special needs. Abilipad is incredibly customizable to help with adaptive reading and writing. If you're looking for a great text-to-speech app that also inlcludes word prediciton and the amazing ability to make quick and easy keyboard layouts, check out Abilipad!

Bottom Line: This app is good for educators (including homeschoolers) to supplement a multiplication curriculum. It’s not a game format, and there is a lot of text that isn't read aloud by the iPad. But the information presented is solid and provides a nice alternative to flashcard-style apps for multiplication practice. At $1.99, the price is reasonable given the amount of data collection available.
Bottom Line: A unique simulation app that allows the user to travel through the digestive system, using trial and error, in an educational, yet fun way. The simulation is thorough, but the app only has one to proceed through. The Amazing Digestive Journey will teach healthy tips and science in an engaging way.
Bottom Line: From the developer Round by Design comes this excellent multicultural app that offers children the opportunity to engage with kids with around the world. One Globe Kids includes eight stories of children from various parts of the world including the Netherlands, Burundi, Indonesia, New York City and Haiti. Free with in-app purchases.
Bottom Line: Know It All — Inventors and Inventions is an app for people who love inventors. From Henry Ford inventing factory production lines to Yuri Nikolaevich Denisyuk inventing 3D holography, this app will keep you guessing. You can join friends and other inventor enthusiasts to compare scores on Game Center and earn awards. Anyone wanting to test their knowledge on inventors past and present should give Know It All Inventors a try. The down side? If you don't love inventors and already know a lot about them, this app probably won't have much appeal.
